American Arwrology: The Science of All-Out Hand-To-Hand Fighting

 
9780954949419: American Arwrology: The Science of All-Out Hand-To-Hand Fighting

In 1943 the classic book Arwrology: All Out Hand To Hand Fighting by Gordon E. Perrigard M.D. was published. Although one of many books of it’s time to put forward a method of close combat for use against the Axis powers, Arwrology was a unique system in its own right. The book itself was destined to become a rare classic because of its content, and the limited number of original copies printed. That status was ensured when, in 1946, officials deemed it too violent for the general public and subsequently banned its sale. In 2001, after several years of study and training in Arwrology, GHCA Founder and Instructor Bob Kasper was granted permission by the Canadian Society of Arwrologists (CSA) to found the American Society of Arwrologists, and given the title 1st Regent (ASA). Soon afterwards, Bob selected seven loyal instructors he had personally trained and together they tested the principles and techniques developed by Dr. Perrigard, culminating with the Arwrology system being fully adopted by the GHCA into their curriculum. Shortly before his untimely death in 2006, Bob Kasper formally passed the ASA and Arwrology system over to one of the seven original instructors, Fred C. Bauer, who was also granted the title 2nd Regent (ASA). As part of his passion to keep the Arwrology system alive, Fred Bauer has compiled this instructional volume on Arwrology in his capacity as 2nd Regent, making it the first official new publication on the subject since the 1943 original. CQB Publications is proud to make available this volume of the Doc’s unique fighting system from WW2 giving a glimpse as to how it is being taught today within the ASA and GHCA. It is a worthy addition to any WW2 / Combatives / Martial Arts library.
