“It will be generally agreed that a manual of this quality should serve a double purpose, for not only is Ju Jitsu to be commended as an excellent form of exercise for adults and youngsters alike in developing all round physical development, but the mastery of even a few of its many holds, throws, strangles and arm locks affords the pupil of either sex a highly effective means of dealing with an attack.
I have never been prone to advance exaggerated claims for the supernormal efficiency of any martial art against an armed and resolute aggressor, but none the less, within my own long experience, both as a pupil and now senior instructor, I firmly believe a Ju Jitsu training manual of this quality, coupled with regular exercise, preferably at a Ju Jitsu club, affords the best possible chance of surviving an attack.”
