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.
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.

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 +++
