person to person "control tactics"?
vital areas of human anatomy
and other such topics relating to actual unarmed "street combat"
i'm in SW Virginia and am open to courses/classes but cant afford right now to pay an arm an a leg for a class.
Qigong Empowerment- Liang & Wu, I’ve read part of it and it goes into points on your body IIRc
Grays Anatomy- great for light reading and when door to door salesmen come a knocking. [:)]
That’s all I can think of right now
Also you can try Krav Maga [url]www.kravmaga.com/Home/home.html[/url]
My personal favorite set of styles is Budo Taijutsu. It is very practical when it comes to grappling and striking. Lots of emphasis on vitals & kyusho (pressure points). Not competition oriented at all, but not as "spiritual" as Aikido. Generally attracts good people, so training is fun. You can see if there are any dojos in your area here:
