# Shanghai Municipal Police Manual Of Self Defense by W. E. Fairbairn / 1915 / English / PDF

This is one of the earliest known publications by W. E. Fairbairn. The tactics and principles outlined in this book were latter expanded upon, and the system became known as Defendu - although Fairbairn himself often called it Gutter Fighting. This book is also interesting as it is strictly a police manual - and as such the techniques place an emphasis on subduing and apprehending the adversary, rather than simply killing the adversary.
