Hook Kick: Applications in Combat is the seventeenth volume to be released in the extremely well written and fully illustrated, Achieving Kicking Excellence series of martial arts related books.
This book, like all the other books in the Applications in Combat series, goes into intricate detail over all aspects of applying the primary kick, which in this case is the Hook Kick, and several of its main variations, against twelve of the most common attacks that you are most likely to face in an actual unarmed self-defense/combat situation.
Proper utilization of the Hook Kick, and the art of kicking in general, is just one of the many techniques available for you to add to your own personal arsenal of combat/self-defense techniques. How you apply, or in some cases do not apply, these kicking techniques in a given self-defense/combat situation could be the deciding factor between victory and defeat. As with almost every aspect of life, using your brain is almost always preferable to using your brawn.
This book, Hook Kick: Applications in Combat, along with the other nine books in the Applications in Combat: Achieving Kicking Excellence series, are arguably the finest and most detailed literary works ever published on the correct application of the Hook Kick against an actual attacker in an actual self-defense/combat situation.
In order to obtain the greatest benefits from reading and utilizing the information provided in this book, YOU the reader should also read and study the companion volume to this book, Hook Kick: Achieving Kicking Excellence; Volume 7.
