Fighting - a path to understanding


taught by Bob Breen

Course description

Welcome to Fighting. My first book. The aim here was to look at the art of Fighting outside of the stylistic trap of system or style. Just to look at it as what it is: Fighting. The aim is to give people a simple yet incredibly deep insight into the art and science of Fighting and to help them be more lucky if doing it. In true JKD fashion we just looked at it in a functional way. I hope you like it and find it really helpful. The feedback on Amazon etc has been great.

Please note this book is also available as part of my 

2020 book bundle

Four books discounted for a limited time, check that out first.  

Enjoy. Bob
