The 36 Deadly Bubishi Points: The Science and Technique of Pressure Point Fighting: Defend Yourself Against Pressure Point Attacks! by Rand Cardwell
Requirements: EPUB Reader 22.01 MB
Overview: Learn how to target the weaknesses of an attacker and effectivelyexploit them in order to defend yourself. The 36 Deadly Bubishi Points gives detailed explanations on how the pressure points of traditional Chinese medicine found in the Bubishi, the venerable "Bible of Karate," are used in attacking an opponent and how to defend yourself against such attacks. This book closely examines these vital points and the science behind them.
While much has been written about the vital points and their medicinal importance, thanks to the popularity of practices such as acupuncture, martial research on the subject has been lacking. Cardwell discusses the vital points from the perspective of an experienced martial artist-including how the body’s vital points are related to the 8 extraordinary vessels and 12 meridians which circulate energy throughout the body.
Through detailed step-by-step instructions and over 96 photographs and illustrations, The 36 Deadly Bubishi Points shows how this knowledge can be employed in self-defense. Respond to an attacker by employing these ancient methods in modern, violent situations.

Turning Points: The Detroit Riot of 1967, A Canadian Perspective by Herb Colling
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 6.4MB
Overview: The Detroit Riot of 1967 marked a turning point in the attitudes and behaviour of people in all walks of life in the Border Cities. As the citizens of Windsor watched their nearest neighbour burn, the way they felt about Detroit changed radically. Perceptions of race relations, of the city across the river, and indeed of themselves, were altered in ways many had not thought possible. For the City of Detroit, the riots created an irrevocable change. Throughout its history the city has struggled with concerns of labour, social and racial justice, but today Detroit is experiencing a renaissance as it continues to address the outcomes of the conflagrations of 1967.

This book, written in the present tense as if the story is unfolding before the reader’s eyes, analyzes one small portion of Detroit’s history: the events leading up to, and immediately following, the riot. Taken largely from first-hand accounts of the people who lived it, Detroit’s racial history is viewed through the eyes of its nearest neighbour, at perhaps the city’s darkest, but most poignant, moment. In an effort to comprehend the past, in order to better understand the potential for the future, this book examines differences and similarities of life on the Canadian and American sides of the river. By delving into our collective past, Herb Colling vividly portrays the violence and the frustrations of the time, and sets the stage for a more optimistic tomorrow.
