This is the first and only authorised, comprehensive manual on the Krav Maga discipline, written by its founder, Imi Sde-Or, and his senior disciple and follower, Eyal Yanilov. Illustrated with over 450 photographs and diagrams, the book specifically addresses the official Krav Maga techniques for coping quickly and efficiently with lethal confrontations. This volume especially focuses on the various facets of dealing with an assailant armed with a sharp-edged weapon, a blunt object, or a firearm. Other subjects covered include: using everyday objects as defensive weapons, defending against two armed assailants, and neutralising threat from a handgun or a hand grenade directed at a third party in a hostage situation. As Mr Shimon Peres, one of Israel's foremost statesmen wrote in his foreword to the book: "...Terrorism does not respect borders!"
