About this Item

1893626342 Wrestling means different things to different people. There is professional wrestling, which most TV viewers have run across, at least, and then there is freestyle wrestling, along with its cousin Greco-Roman wrestling, an actual Olympic sport. Beaumont is concerned with applying freestyle to tussling, brawling, and street fighting, and he offers straightforward, results-oriented instruction in physically subduing an adversary. With emphasis on conditioning and nicely illustrated explanations of basic moves (single and double leg shots, throws, chicken wings, and fireman's carries), Beaumont explores real techniques, while sections on "chokes and strangles," pile drivers, and pain holds go beyond the Olympic model to the aggressive tactics motivated readers presumably seek. This is serious instruction for serious folks. Worth noting is cover art, here as for several other Loompanics books, by Spain Rodriguez, a giant among underground comics artists for creating Trashman, Agent of the Sixth International, and also an erstwhile East Coast biker.

About this title

Synopsis:

Sure, you know how to punch and kick, but how well can you fight at shorter range? Can you defend yourself when the fight turns to grappling? When both you and your opponent are rolling around and wrestling on the barroom floor, are you confident that you can win the fight? If you doubt your chances at close quarters, then you are not prepared for the reality of streetfighting. That's because, as Ned Beaumont points out here, in the real world, fights frequently begin with or turn into bouts of wrestling, and the antagonist with the greater expertise in wrestling is most often the victor. The truly tough customer is the person who thoroughly conditions himself, diligently studies and practices wrestling holds and techniques, and then makes full use of them in rough-and-tumble situations. Learn to prevail in the street by reading this book!
