Bruce Tegner! that name rings a bell, I think we've got a couple of his books in our collection

Yep! just checked we've got 3

Bruce Tegner's book of Kung Fu & Tai Chi: Chinese Karate ( first printed in 1968 )
Savate: French Foot Fighting ( first printed in 1960 )
and his completely revised!!!! Bruce Tegner Method of Self Defence: The best of Judo, Jiu Jitsu, Karate, Savate, Yawara, Aikido & Ate_Waza ( first printed in 1960 )

We picked them up back in 1984 from a second hand book shop - like Animal has said second hand bookshops can be great places to pick up odd books Elizabeth's Second hand book shop used to a great spot but sometimes the small ones tucked away in the back corner of a shopping centre are great too

Datasbasebear here's a list from one of his books of all the titles
