The humurous yet to-the-point teaching style revealed in his book came into being in his garage, where he still teaches a group of martial artists. But his teaching expertise is more than just "garage born." He started teaching magic lessons both out of the back of the magic shop, which he co-owned, and for the Eugene Parks and Rec.

Returning to College on a Graduate Teaching Fellowship, he taught both Italian and Spanish for the University of Oregon while earning his M.A. in Spanish and the Art of Teaching. He built a career and a reputation in high-school teaching for over a decade. This year, he is writing about the martial arts full time. Keith Pascal's goal is to give his readers, and his students, an edge. His methods are unique, and they work.

    Kip Pascal has produced an outstanding book, "Wrist Locks: From Protecting Yourself to Becoming an Expert!" This book will answer more questions about wrist locks, then you even knew existed, and more then that, it will lead you to ask even further questions in your quest to become an expert in appling this fastastic segment of the martial arts!I was very impressed with Mr. Pascal's 'way' of writing, and you will love his sense of humor, and of course the clear, and presise drawings help even the beginner get a quick grasp on the finer points of appling the locks.The book has become one of the most important books in my martial arts library, and I continue to use it as a reference. I highly encourage you to order this book, you owe to yourself!BIG Sean Madigan

    What a scam. I am convinced those who rated this outdated and useless book highly were paid endorsements. In a street fight, if you honestly believe you are going to get someone, swinging at you like a Mike Tyson, in a wrist lock you should be beaten to an inch of your life. Maybe only then will you see the lunacy of your thinking. Don't get me wrong. Wrist locks have a place for police officers who arrest drunken miscreants who fully comply. But this book is rediculous. The pictures are old and gritty, unclear, vague, and really, how much can you learn this subtle art from a book? If you think you can, I have a book I'd like to sell you on teaching you how to fly a 747 jet airliner. All you do is read the book and you are ready to fly the jet--the same day. I hate scam artists and this is yet another one who is trying to use fear to sell smake oil.

    I bought this book and found it very helpful in reviewing locks I already knew,in acquiring tips for impoving those locks, and for learning others. Very readable, with a nice, easy style. I would recommend it to any martial artist who wants to improve and refresh his/her basic knowledge of this important part of hand-to-hand combat. I call wrist locks "the small man's friend" (I'm 5'7") because, properly employed, they can help smaller combatants overcome the size and weight advantage of larger opponents. Gave it four stars because I feel the drawings can be improved, or helped by more precise photographs--a small quibble about a fine book.Ed Fitzgerald, Mesa, AZ

    I have been teaching martial arts for 5 years and studying for nearly 10 before that. This book is exactly what I needed. Teaching TKD, we don't use a lot of locks, but we do teach them. This book covered reversals and counters as well as being generally informative on the subject.It is written in easy language and the drawing do help (though could be updated). I have bought books at twice this price and gotten half as much out of them.

    This book is well formatted and reads very well. The drawings could have been more elaborate but they served their intended purpose. I have practiced with this book and it is helpful and practical. Also I would like to mention I have nothing but good things to say about the author,Mr Pascal is a stand up guy. I would advise anyone to purchase this book as I am confident they would walk away with a greater knowledge than they began with.

    As someone who uses bonelocks already, I found Mr Pascal's book of interest and of benefit in adding other locks to my repertoire. Whilst most of them are not of use in Judo they are most certainly worth learning. Being able to bring an incident to a close quickly and with control is much better than using more than minimum force.Well done Keith!

  • By JKD/Martial Arts Enthusiast on June 23, 2005

    Keith Pascal introduces practical martial arts concepts that are hard to find anywhere else. His writing is clear, easy to read, and humorous. This is a great book for anyone who is interested in learning more about wrist/joint locks, even those who are mainly interested in striking techniques. Get this book and see for yourself!

    Frank Taylor "FT56" probably has not read the book . Please ignore him . Keith Pascal writing is clear, easy to read , the book is very good . I rated "4" because the pictures are not so good . It would be great have real photos or even a movie on a cd rom version but just better drawings would be enough to rate it at "5" .
