Sudden Violence

Arguably the best book ever written on the Art and a “must have” in any San Soo person’s collection. The best way to survive a street fight is to end it before it starts, and that is the essence of San Soo Kung Fu – to brutally take your opponent out before he gets a chance to attack!
