Arwrology is derived from the old Welsh word arwr9 meaning an all-out hand-to-hand fighter. It was developed by Gordon E. Perrigard, a Canadian medical doctor who combined his knowledge of advanced ju-jitsu with his knowledge of human anatomy to come up with this devas-tatingly effective close-in combat system. Arwrology was originally released in 1943 in Canada for use in training combatants for World War II. Martialists from all over the world quickly hailed its superior fighting methods, and today it remains one of the most highly sought after—and most valuable—fighting manuals in the world.
Arwrology is distinctive because it uses a single system of conditioned reflexes based on general body movement for both armed and unarmed fighting. If one method fails to subdue an attacker, a practitioner can effortlessly flow to another technique without exposing his body to attack. Through clear instructions, photos, and illustrations Arwrology shows you how to
• Defeat someone armed with a firearm, knife, dagger or club
• Use knowledge to overcome brute strength
• Fall without injury and rise up without using your hands
• Get out of strangleholds, grips, and other holds
• Train to develop fast reflexes and important fighting muscles
Don't miss your chance to add this authentic reproduction of an extremely rare combat classic to your library at a price you can afford.

Devoted as I am to popularizing amateur boxing and to improving the caliber of this particularly desirable competitive sport, I am highly enthusiastic over John Walsh's boxing instruction book. No one in the United States today can equal John's record as an amateur boxer and a coach. He is highly regarded as a sportsman. Before turning to coaching and the practice of law John was one of the most successful college and Golden Gloves boxers the sport has ever known.
