Example text

Therefore when applying it to anyone, go slowly at first. Experiment on each other a few times that you may acquire a moderation and temperance and so avoid injuring a less robust companion. NOTES ON THE WAISTHOLD Before practicing the chin shove given on the following page you and your partner should execute the waisthold as taught in Book 1, three times each. The waisthold is not much use against a heavier man and is not taught in this course for its fighting value. It is taught in order to provide an Assailant for the man who wants to learn the chin shove.

A USELESS METHOD OF DEFENSE It is useless when thus attacked to seize Assailant's wrists and try to pull them off. Yet that is what most people would do under the paralyzing effects of fear. It is almost as useless to try and seize a finger and pry his grip open, or even break the finger. If he is strong he would have you nearly choked before you could accomplish this. Even if you are stronger than Assailant is, strength is not nearly so speedy a way of conquering him as the methods given here, particularly the Third Method.

Assailant is holding you around waist. You have your hand on his chin. Let him stiffen his neck and resist your efforts to push him back, so that you are struggling with him strength against strength. You will be unable to push him back. Instead of continuing to push back against his strength push up, dropping your body a little so that your Stahara is behind the upward effort. This will instantly get him off balance and you can easily subdue him. ADVANCED PRACTICE IN THE CHIN SHOVE Compare your position with each illustration until you have learnt the applied mechanics of the trick and can get a stronger man off his balance and so discount his strength by scientific shoving.
