Self-Defense for Gentlemen and Ladies: A Nineteenth-Century Treatise on Boxing,

Self-Defense for Gentlemen and Ladies by Thomas Hoyer Monstery Estimated delivery 3-12 business days Format Hardcover Condition Brand New Description Self-Defense for Gentlemen and Ladiesais the treatise of Colonel Thomas Hoyer Monstery, a master swordsman who participated in more than fifty duels, fought under twelve flags, battled gangsters, and was constantly involved in the great conflicts and upheavals of his time. Monsterys treatise-originally published in the 1870s as a series of newspaper articles and collected here for the first time-is his magnum opus, a highly detailed dissertation on the art and science of defense. Filled with profound insight as well as practical advice based upon personal combative experience, it proposes a holistic approach to self-defense, including both unarmed and armed methods for use against a wide variety of fighting styles and weapons, as well as touching upon issues of health, exercise, diet and longevity.Self-Defense for Gentlemen and Ladiesapresents a unique look into the Victorian fighting world, describing styles of the era such as British “purring” (shin-kicking), Welsh jump-kicking, and Danish head-fighting. Additionally, the books section on the quarterstaff is the only American source on this weapon prior to the 20th century. Aside from its historical value, however, Monsterys teachings on unarmed self-defense, cane fighting, and responding to unpredictable situations are still useful today, especially for those martial artists focused on “real world” self-defense. Fifty rare drawings and photographs from the period provide a fascinating glimpse into Monsterys world and training, while an extensive glossary of terms and an introductory biography of Colonel Monstery–including fascinating details of his many duels as well as his groundbreaking devotion to teaching fencing and self-defense skills to women–update Monsterys text to make it accessible to a broad and modern audience.aCONTENTSColonel Thomas Hoyer Monstery- The Unknown American Martial Arts MasterI.
