Overview:Self-Defense For Gentlemen And Ladies: A Nineteenth-Century Treatise on Boxing, Kicking, Grappling, and Fencing with the Cane and Quarterstaff - Self-Defense for Gentlemen and Ladies is 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. Monstery's treatise--originally published in the 1870s as a series of newspaper articles and collected here for the first time--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 Ladies presents a unique look into the Victorian fighting world, describing other styles of the era such as Cornish "purring" (shin-kicking), Welsh jump-kicking, Danish head-fighting, African American head-butting, and American rough-and-tumble fighting. Rare drawings and photographs from the period provide a fascinating glimpse into Monstery's 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 Monstery's text to make it accessible to a broad and modern audience.
