Hands Off! Self-Defense for Women
W. E. Fairbairn -
D. Appleton-Century Company | 1942 | ISBN: N/A | English | 49 pages | PDF | 48.14 MB

Fairbairn takes the techniques and training he developed for the young female SOE agents and created a simple system for women to learn for their safety acknowledging that their attackers are likely to be male, bigger and stronger. This applies as much today in the 21st century as did in the 1940's.
