Stevie Nicks showed us how to kick ass in high-heeled boots in her bodyguard's self-defense book, calling our attention to the little-known 1983 book, Hands Off!: A Unique New System of Self Defence Against Assault for the Women of Today.
The book itself was written by Bob Jones, an Australian martial arts instructor who doubled as a security guard for Fleetwood Mac, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Joe Cocker and other stars. And it featured what Jones called "mnemonic movements"--essentially a series of nine subconscious/reflexive self-defense moves (like a swift knee to the groin). See Jones' website for a more complete explanation of the exercise routine that also provided, he notes, a great cardio workout.
