Figjting book is not yet featured on Listopia. Dec 16, Caleb Malcom rated it liked it. If you have absolutely no knowledge how to defend yourself then sure read this book.
If you have even rudimentary training skip it. Nov 04, Steve Scott rated it did not like it Shelves: Tegner’s scenarios are implausible and his application and execution sloppy. During one defense technique Tegner is bent backward and off balance to an extreme degree, defending against an attack few ne’er do wells would ever make. He makes absolute statements about the efficacy of etick techniques that don’t bear up to a rational analysis.
He teaches defenses with a crutch that are absolutely ridiculous. One section has the use of the quarter staff versus the quarter staff To be generous, there are some valid applications here–maybe a handful–but the reader would be better served using more modern sources for a reference. This is a terrible book. I sort of feel bad for Tegner. Fightinb was supposedly booed at tournaments because of his books. He published these in an era where such stuff didn’t pass muster.
Had he published these in the forties or fifties, they would have stiick lauded. His technique isn’t much worse than other works from that era. By the seventies, though, tighting higher standard had been achieved, and Tegner was a walking anachronism.
The ultimate fun, inexpensive rainy-day activity.
