When all the people in the world spoke one language, life was convenient but boring. So the townsfolk of Shinar decide to build a tower. As they reach the heavens, they proudly congratulate themselves on their achievement. Suddenly thunder and lightning strike, making the townsfolk unable to understand each other. A whimsical, irreverent retelling of the Bible story of the Tower of Babel.

Everybody's Book of Self-Defense is a comprehensive book that covers a wide gamut of fighting techniques drawn from various fighting methods like Kung-fu, Judo, Jiu-Jitsu, Kempo and Karate. The book gives clear explanations with pictures that illustrate what is being taught. I am now using the book in working with my grandson, who I am introducing to the wonderful world of martial arts training.
