It is a nearly lost form of Western martial art that is rich in history and full of painfully brutal techniques. Say Uncle! traces the background of this unique sport through the US and Japan back to England and Ireland. The book is full of exclusive interviews from legends like Karl Gotch, Billy Robinson, Josh Barnett and more.
