by Maj. W.E. Fairbairn

When W.E. Fairbairn wrote Hands Off! in 1942, most men were off fighting the war, and women were left on their own to provide for and protect themselves. The father of modern hand-to-hand combat, Fairbairn was very familiar with the information available about self-defense at the time – he had written much of it, including the classic Get Tough – and he knew that it was all geared for men. So he adapted the methods presented in Hands Off! especially for women. Fairbairn’s hands-on techniques taught women how to turn their perceived disadvantages of weight, build and strength into advantages to be exploited against potential attackers.

Even though the techniques in Hands Off! are still sound today, this historical gem’s real value is as a record of the state of the world and women’s self-defense 60 years ago. Long out of print, the original edition is available today primarily through rare book sellers and commands a steep price because of its uniqueness and its famous author. Paladin Press is proud to bring back a work by the inimitable self-defense master W.E. Fairbairn so that a new generation of Americans can enjoy his teachings. 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, softcover, photos, 56 pp.

W.E. Fairbairn taught unarmed combat to the famed British Commandos and the U.S. armed forces during World War II. Before the war he served as assistant commissioner of the Shanghai Police Force. He was the inventor of the Fairbairn Commando Knife and the author of the classics Get Tough and Shooting to Live.
