A second-degree black belt in Shaolin Ngor Chor Kung Fu, Simon Harrison has written a concise book for women and girls of all ages, explaining how to protect ourselves with our most basic tools - from arms, head, legs and butt to cell phone, keys, high heels and even a handbag.

Pictures in clear and vivid colors demonstrate precise Kung Fu moves. This how-to book on protecting yourself can be flipped through at any time. More importantly, it includes valuable tools and tips that can be practiced and shared with friends, as a means to keep yourself and your loved ones away from harm wherever you or they are. With practice, you too can learn how to use simple Kung Fu moves in order to avoid being a target, or simply to make an attacker regret they even picked on you.

With wit and humor, Simon Harrison has written a book of benefit to all. I recommend Kung Fu For Girls to you, whether you are taking martial arts, considering training for self-defense, or simply could use the knowledge and confidence to get out of a dangerous situation.
