I haven't read it for a long time, but I'd say that some of the ideas are valid. For example, teaching a straightforward, basic WW2 combatives system as self defence for people who don't have the time/inclination to commit to long-term training; the emphasis on training for surprise scenarios and not making too many assumptions about "what will happen" in a real assault; the emphasis on co-ordination and balance exercises to support whatever techniques you might be able to pull off in a real fight.
