I found many useful concepts in this book. As a fighter, I was stopped by my lizard brain and an inability to understand how to reprogram it....Hopefully this book holds the information that will help my daughter overcome that problem.

So many concepts that I had no words for are now much clearer to me. I knew that women had a lower center of gravity and a higher pain tolerance. (have a guy bend over from the waist with his head against the wall and step back until the wall is what is holding up the weight of his head...he won't be able to stand up because his center of gravity is too low. Have a woman do the same experiment and she'll pop right up to her feet every time!) After reading this I just SO badly want to try the ice water experiment! LOL

The illustrations and the style of the writing in this book make it a very usable resource. ( )

By far the best guide for female fighters in the SCA. It covers Physiology and Psychology, equipment and armor, and is an excellent guide for both the fighter and the trainer. Note: this is not a book of excuses. Rather, is describes the most common stumbling blocks and tangible means of overcoming them. ( )
