MEDIA REVIEWS
"You don't have to be a drinker to appreciate the wit and wisdom that James Porco put into Bar-Jutsu: The American Art of Bar Fighting. The author hails from a background in Bujinkan ninjutsu, in which he holds a second degree black belt, but his book is all about the Western ways of throwing down." -Black Belt magazine
"Tired of getting your ass kicked in bar fights? Or just curious about how to behave in a hypothetical pub scuffle? The new book Bar-Jutsu: The American Art of Bar Fighting is not a masterpiece, but it does offer some useful tips should you ever find yourself in a Road House-style barroom brawl." -MadeMan.com blog
"...a perfect blend of entertainment and training. The lessons are spot-on, and the images perfectly illustrate the nuances required to make self-defense maneuvers effective. The scenarios are hilarious, and can easily happen to any of us...from an "average Joe" to a professional wrestler, or even to the original wrestling diva!" -Tammy "Sunny" Sytch, the Original Diva and professional wrestling hall of famer
"This book manages to make self-defense funny. From the very first pages it sets the tone; you can learn to defend yourself without being a stone-faced ninja. It is both an entertaining read and a practical guide for learning self-defense basics. Laugh and learn!" -Brad Sommer, Sommer Entertainment Group
"I wish everyone who walked into my bar had a little sensei in their head telling them what to do before a confrontation starts. That's exactly what this book does. It teaches in a very clear manner how to diffuse trouble before it starts, and how to end it before it escalates out of control." -Pete Sparico, bar bouncer, Pittsburgh, PA
"[Bar-jutsu] provides very real scenarios, and very PRACTICAL ways of handling yourself when things are unpredictable. We're not talking dojos and judged competitions here, we're talking bars and drunken jerks. This book will quickly teach you how to be prepared and to know your opponent, even during chaos." -Rod Salka, professional boxer, WBA NABA USA champion
"...a wonderfully presented approach to handling yourself in very real confrontational situations." -Ed Martin, 15th Dan Shihan
"The lessons are perfect for those of us not interested in becoming martial arts experts. If you want to feel more confident the next time you are in a crowded bar or other rowdy place, you really need to read this book." -Mike Blade, professional wrestler
