Présentation de l'éditeur

If you want to acquire the skills needed to defend against larger, stronger adversaries without devoting a lifetime to martial art study, this book offers a viable solution: become an expert low kicker. The anatomical targets emphasized in most self-defense programs (eyes, throat, testicles) are stunningly effective - if you can hit them. But that's often easier said than done when your adversary is big, mean and coming at you with both fists flying. By comparison, the knees, shins and insteps are relatively easy to hit even without extensive training or above-average strength. In fact, the average person - even the average woman - has enough lower-body strength to deliver a punishing kick to these vital targets. In this book, Fred Hutchinson, author of The Modern Swordsman, offers basic instruction on stance, kick chambering, weight shifting and footwork. He then teaches specific training drills and methods for throwing chambered and unchambered kicks; practicing proper kicking form; training for agility, speed, accuracy and power; maximizing your kicking power through lower-body conditioning; and employing low kicks tactically. Practice them consistently and you will become adept at dealing out destruction with your feet and knees should the need arise.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Inutile 17 janvier 2005
Par Philippe
Format:Broché
Alors que l'idée de départ était originale, la réalisation de l'ouvrage reste décevante... Ce livre, que l'on devrait plutôt qualifier de fascicule, n'est qu'un bref exposé de quelques techniques de coups de pied niveau bas, sans aucune application en combat. Procurez-vous un bon livre de karaté ou de boxe française, appliquez les coups de pieds démontrés au niveau moyen au niveau bas et vous aurez votre affaire, avec en plus quantité d'autres techniques... Le chapitre sur la préparation physique n'est cependant pas sans intérêt, mais un livre d'arts martiaux devrait en principe mieux traiter les arts martiaux que la musculation...

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Unreservedly Recommended 3 août 2001
Par James Loriega - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Fred Hutchinson's Low Kicks is an excellent manual for training the body's most powerful anatomical weapons -- the legs. The manual's format is similar to John Sanchez's Slash and Thrust and Andrea Ferrara's Corsican Steel. (What these manuals share in common is the presentation of training exercises that are independent of style or system. The obvious result is that any reader can benefit from their information regardless of his/her own background, expertise, or combative preferences.) Low Kicks begins by identifying those kicks that Hutchinson considers most appropriate for self defense from the perspective of the reader who cannot train regularly in a dojo. The kicks he recommends are simple in execution and effective in application. Some kicks are drawn from traditional karate, and a few others come from French savate. At least two kicks Hutchinson uses come from WWII Military Combatives, a "style" of combat that has recently developed a large following in the US and Britain. The book then proceeds to reveal a variety of training methods used for making the kicks even more effective. The methods described are such that the reader can utilize them in his den or basement without relying on elaborate equipment or training devices. What is most unique about Low kicks is not only that the author has diligently selected those kicks that work best under a wide range of circumstances, but that the kicks fit in smoothly with the body dynamics used by diverse martial arts systems from karate and savate to ninjutsu and combatives. We have recently made Lopw Kicks required reading in our training halls, and unreservedly recommend it to anyone interested in practical personal protection.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This book is a gem. 1 avril 2005
Par A. Zilberman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Yes, I know this book does not cover the high-flying kick or Thai round kick to

the thigh! If you do not spend all day practice martial arts or you are above

certain age those kicks are useless and even dangerous. What this book is

presenting are the kicks that any person regardless of their previous experience

can learn and apply in any situation without any preparation. They are meant to be

used when one is facing a life and death situation. Incidentally Thai boxing is a sport.

Try the Thai kick in the elevator or telephone booth.

Some people may complain that this book seems like it was written in the Bruce

Tegner days, may be so but since our bodies did not change what is the difference

the techniques are still hold. I can tell you from the personal experience -

Those techniques works. True the illustration may desire to be better, but go

beyond that, understand the essence of what the author want to convey. If

you want real proven techniques that always effective, forget all those fancy

kicks, get good HARD shoes and start kicking, keep it simple.

With practice in applying Hutchinson's clear, step-by-step instructions, martial arts students will enhanced their agility, speed, accuracy, power, and tactical effectiveness in a combat situation through the use of low kicks.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Really A Very Good Look At The Subject Of Low Kicking 26 mai 2008
Par Shawn Kovacich - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I must admit that I was at first a bit skeptical of the material in this book when I was first deciding whether or not I was going to purchase it. However, I am pleased to say that I am very glad that I did purchase it, for it is actually a very well done book and the few criticisms that I do have on it are minor indeed in comparison to the wealth of material that I found inside.

Being the author on numerous books on the subject of kicking, I tend to be perhaps a little to critical of other books on the same subject. I guess a comparison could be made that you are always harder on those you care about than those you don't. The same holds true for me and books on the martial arts and more specifically books on kicking.

This book really is outstanding in its look at the use of low kicks for self-defense. I am also an avid proponent of using kicks in self-defense, although I don't necessarily limit my use of them strictly to lower level targets. The author really covers a lot of ground in this book and although some areas seemed a little brief, they all meshed well with one another to give the reader a very good and realistic view of the use of low kicks for self-defense. Here are just a couple of the kicks the author recommends for use at a low level.

Front Kick
Side Kick
Roundhouse Kick

My primary critique of this book is the fact that the author didn't use actual photographs to demonstrate the various techniques in his book. Instead he used simple line drawings and sketches of what appeared to be the author himself executing the various kicks. That and the lack of some footwork illustrations were the only real detractors that I found in this book. I really think that this book could have been so much better had the author used some actual photographs. And for that reason, and that reason only, I proudly rate this book at 4.5 stars.

However, that one critique aside, this book is simply loaded with good information and one that I happily admit that I am proud to have in my own personal library of martial arts books. Now I must end this review by stating that I don't necessarily adhere to absolutely everything that the author prescribes to in this book, although I will say that I do agree with the vast majority of it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Well-Grounded Practical Self-Defense +++ 19 décembre 2009
Par Kevin Kiersky - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Fred Hutchinson presents well-grounded practcal self-defense in this fine thin manual. This author has studied and applied various Martial Arts -- Western Sword Arts most in particular. I have found for myself that such Sword Arts add something extra to ones perspective even beyond Cane Arts -- perhaps an even sharper awareness of guarding at all times while attempting to jab-or-cut ones foe and one must stay on-balance and have only a modest set of primary moves -- or one gets CUT ["down-and-dead"].

That may be why "Low Kicks" is so well-ordered for an intensely practical method of self-defense -- with some upper-body moves, such as the Palm Jab, but based-on a modest few low streamlined kicks to lower targets -- not costing one much loss-of-balance and hard-to-defend for a foe. The usual "dirty targets" of other various quick self-defense methods will be naturally expected and countered by most thugs -- who will then box, tackle and strangle the defender into last week. Aikido and Judo applied skills can be great -- but take a great amount of practice to work with real odds of success. The Art as presented in "Low Kicks" is as modest and practical as can be -- and is compatible with many other Arts -- such as Kickboxing, Jiujitsu or Kenpo Arts +++
