Has anybody read?
Thomas Fewtrell's science of manual self-defense
Mendoza's treatise of boxing
Morihei Ueshiba's Budo (1938 with the instructions not just the pictures; in English)
I'm just wondering if anyone else read these.

This is probably more of a "MA history post" then a "your MA sucks" post.
That said, I've never even heard of them. Do tell.You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

Mendoza and Fewtrell are boxings manuals. Fewtrell was the first boxing manual and Mendoza the third. There was another guy, but he basically plagerized fewtrell.
Budo was Ueshiba's aikido manual for Emperor Hirohito.
I was asking because to read these books changed my perspective of boxing and aikido. Boxing was a complete style (logical strikes, wrestling, and kicking) and Aikido was actually a bad ass ( yes, yes, I sccared me to, but Ueshiba pussificated his own style after the Japanese lost WWII).
I was wondering if anyone else read these.
Mendoza's treatise is here
I'd post the others, but I only have those on pdf.

I have "read" budo. It is a difficult read with some very hard to understand references. Pretty good pictures though (that statement sounds like a winner).
