The Self Defence Book

The South African Woman's Guide to Self-Defence Published by Struik in 1999
Author -Sanette Smit

The combination of an increasing crime rate and staggering rape statistics (over one million women and children are raped in South Africa every year) has clearly defined the need for a book which not only empowers and encourages women to acknowledge their capabilities, but shows them how to defend themselves. The South African Woman's Guide to Self-Defence is such a book, teaching you how to identify opportunities and implement easy, yet effective self-defence techniques.

Aimed at every woman in South Africa, regardless of fitness level, age or physical appearance, the authoritative text, step-by-step instructions and 250 colour photographs clearly demonstrate the various techniques and make learning self-defence easy.
