For Humble Mother Truckers Who Want to Hit Really, Really Hard
Listen carefully and try to keep up!
The concepts in this book can help you hit a lot harder. If you do the work, you’ll make the person holding the focus mitt gasp when you hit it. You may pop an air shield or break a heavy bag in half. In self-defense (don’t pick fights) you could drop your attacker to the pavement like a cold side of beef. It could save your life.
Whether you’re into self-defense, sparring or winning tournaments, it’s good to know how to hit hard and hit fast with little effort, and how to do it while moving smoothly, maintaining your balance and exposing yourself to low risk.

Art of Japanese Swordsmanship
by Nicklaus Suino
The original purpose of iaido was to slay an opponent with one stroke of the sword upon unsheathing; today it is practiced as a martial art, one that improves concentration, develops strength and coordination, and cultivates awareness of an ancient culture and its traditions. This manual of Eishin-Ryu (or "Pure Faith") iaido teaches the most widely practiced sword style, and is illustrated with step-by-step drawings to help students, from beginners to advanced, hone their forms and techniques. Introductory chapters explain the history and evolution of the art, the Japanese sword and related equipment, and the etiquette and code of the samurai, while an extensive glossary and bibliography are provided for further reference.
