Arte Suave JJ ImagesWith a combined total of over 80 years of martial arts experience, Professor Shah Franco and Master Sylvio Behring have shared their knowledge and understanding of what self defence should be: humane, practical and encompassing of all potentially violent situations.

Captured by internationally renowned photographer Moy Volkovich,
the book features step by step breakdowns of the positions necessary to comprehend the basics of self defence.

Also featured is a special piece by master artist, Renshi Rick McCarthy.

We look forward celebrating the evolution of Franco-Behring and this book with a fun filled evening, of music, performances, drinks and snacks.
