Charles Nelson's School Of Self-defense: The Red and Gray Manuals
#1
Information 
Charles Nelson's School Of Self-defense: The Red and Gray Manuals

I've heard a lot about Mr. Charles Nelson's SD books (specifically the Red Book).  Decided to purchase it on Kindle.  This should be pure WWII combatives for civilians (initial impression).  I'll review it here after I've read through it.

Two thousand years ago wise men sought Christ, wise men still do.

Techniques are situational, principles are universal.

Fast as the wind, quiet as the forest, aggressive as fire, and immovable as a mountain.

He who gets there first with the most...wins!

Minimal force may not be minimum force!

We don't rise to the occasion...we sink to the level of our training.

Very simple and straight-forward, which is exactly as it was designed.  Very similar to a lot of Bruce Tegner's material.  Spit in their eyes to cause a distraction (or throw loose change in their face as GM Dunn often expounds upon) and then kick them in the knee/groin with plenty of chin jabs/edge-of-hand strikes.

I'd recommend it as a useful and historical reference.  Smile
