New Hand to Hand Combat Book Stresses The Importance of Unarmed Combat

Fayetteville, North Carolina (PressExposure) November 24, 2008 -- In his new book Combat Application Techniques: Principles of Destruction (published by AuthorHouse), author Andrew Curtiss offers a quick and easy read for anyone interested in learning the basics of effective hand-to-hand combat. Although Curtiss includes information on specific techniques, he primarily stresses the basic principles of unarmed combat.

Chapters in Combat Application Techniques include Grips, Stance, The Warrior Mind Set, Unarmed Versus Knife and Vital Targets. Curtiss writes, "Efficiency, simplicity and practicality were foremost in the design of this program. I want to provide the soldier with the philosophy and principles that in combat every move should be efficient with little or no waste."

When asked why he thinks Combat Application Techniques will appeal to readers, Curtiss is quick to respond:

This book is an interesting read for those not only interested in unarmed combat and the military, but also those who are curious as to what goes on inside the minds of today's soldiers when they are faced with the fact that they are out of ammunition and completely unarmed. Many will find this book interesting simply because it is a common instruction manual filled with philosophies that are not the norm. Parental Advisory: The content in this book is for mature audiences only due to its graphic and violent nature.
