PREFACE, AFTERWORD, FOOTNOTES, AND ADDITIONAL PHOTOS BY MOTI NATIV
In this distinctive book, Moshe Feldenkrais lays out a particularly successful training process. His conclusions regarding the essence of learning through clear, direct statements and by implication are clearly presented to the reader. He provides a very detailed and accurate description of specific combat techniques and also presents the reader with principles of the learning process which are valid for all of life’s endeavors.
Anyone who reads this book can use it for the practical study of the combat techniques presented or implement the principles to design a personal training program.
This book, which ostensibly deals with just one technique, offers an efficient methodology for all training and instruction. My own experience has convinced me that this path is superior when working with experienced martial artists and with those inexperienced in the techniques of hand to hand combat. Moreover, the technique that Moshe Feldenkrais chose, strangulation from the rear, is most efficient.
