The SAS self-defense handbook : elite defense techniques for men and women by John Wiseman( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Uspešna samoobramba je kombinacija znanja samoobrambnih tehnik in pozitivne duševne naravnanosti, sposobnosti pravilne presoje nevarnih situacij, s tem pa tudi možnosti izogiba raznih oblik nasilja in zagotavljanja stanja budne pripravljenosti. Nevarnost, da bi postali žrtev napada, se tako bistveno zmanjša. V priročniku zbrane samoobrambne tehnike izhajajo iz raznih disciplin in temeljijo na nazorni razlagi izkušenih pripadnikov britanskih specialnih zračnih enot (SAS). Elitne obrambne tehnike so namenjene moškim in ženskam, a tudi na tem področju še vedno velja: bolje preprečevati kot zdraviti
