When the author wrote Hands Off! in 1942, most men were off fighting the war, and women were left on their own to provide for and protect themselves. Fairbarn's hands-on techniques taught women how to turn their perceived disadvantages of weight, build and strength into advantages to be exploited against potential attackers. This historical gem's real value is as a record of the state of the world and women's self-defense 60 years ago, and Paladin Press is proud to bring back a work by the inimitable self-defense master W.E. Fairbairn so that a new generation of American men and women can enjoy and benefit from his teachings.
