KARATE is the ancient art of weaponless self-defense and counterattack so fearful in its consequences to anyone who attacks you that it was shrouded in secrecy for centuries by the Japanese priests who perfected it. You've seen amazing demonstrations on TV, read about them in your favorite newspapers and magazines. And you've thought that mastering its technique would cost you too much in money and in time. But now, beginning today—merely by glancing through this clearly written, graphically illustrated, step-by-step self-instruction handbook—-you can begin to develop a physical mastery over any opponent foolish enough to threaten you, no matter what his size may be, no matter what weapon he brandishes! Without body straining weights or tedious special exercises, you'll quickly learn how to instinctively rout any surprise attack by street punks, bar-room toughs, sidewalk wise-guys who insult your girl. Women will learn how easy it is to ward off the mashers, molesters, purse snatchers, and sneak thieves who prowl every public place.
