Unlike other books currently available on self-defence, this is the first French manual that addresses in detail the three complementary aspects that are personal safety, self-defence and urban survival. The authors describe these themes into 3 parts punctuated with practical inserts, and illustrated with many photos and explanatory diagrams. The part about personal safety presents all information that avoids a dangerous situation (protection of his home and in his vehicle, protection of personal information, behavioural/gestural and verbal communication, and specific equipments). The part talking about the self-defence details combat principles and techniques, with or without weapons and without attachment to a specific martial arts school, to be used in a situation of aggression. The part talking about urban survival covers two aspects: firstly survival after assault (first aid, psychological and legal survival), the other, the useful knowledge in extreme situations, particularly when travelling abroad (terrorism, epidemics, war ...).
