John Lofty Wiseman is the author of the bestselling SAS Survival Handbook, the definitive guide to survival in the wild from Britain's Special Air Service.

Add to these the risks of travel, terrorism, muggings, rape, tsunamis, and earthquakes. We are constantly reminded that the world is a dangerous place. Wiseman shows readers how to think realistically and practically about these perils in order to avoid them, whether they are at home, on the street, in school, or in transit. From self-defense techniques to home security systems to coping with natural disasters, this book will teach readers to recognize risks, make quick decisions, and live confidently in the modern urban world
The SAS self-defense handbook : elite defense techniques for men and women by John Wiseman( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 184 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
