Product Description

The Kissaki Method: Kissaki-Kai is karate returned to its practical and functional roots. It was founded by Vince Morris, 8th dan, in 1993 at the behest of senior black belt students who had become disillusioned with what the 'traditional' karate schools had to offer in terms of 'real' fighting techniques. It is less a style but more a series of principles guided by Sensei Morris' 'Rules of Combat', a groundbreaking analysis of strategies derived from many real world conflicts. Here, UK Chief Instructor Don Came, presents a series of drills following these Rules that you can apply to your own teaching or training, which can also help you unlock the hidden applications of the kata or forms within your own system. Contents include: Flow drills + defences against a series of common methods of assault, including straight and hook punches, combination punches, headbutts, and various grabs seen as a precursor to a strike... all practised from realistic ranges! These can be used to enhance your own lesson plans and be incorporated into any martial system.

Review

This DVD is superb! Great production values, superb presentation and solid no-nonsense content. When so much of modern karate is practised in an unrealistic manner from an unrealistic range, it's always heartening to see karate presented as it should be! The DVD shows a great number of close-range flow drills that make use of the key principles of the Kissaki-Kai method (that can be utilised by practitioners of all styles) and methods found within the traditional kata. Don Came 6th dan explains and demonstrates these drills in a clear and authoritative way which makes for a very information dense DVD. Close-range, practical and exactly what karate was and should be. As I say, superb! A must for all pragmatically minded karateka. --Iain Abernethy 6th Dan BCA, BKA, EKF

I love drills !
Steven Webster used to say "Drills for Skills, Skills for Drills".
This is certainly the case with this DVD.
The drills are very functional and can be easily
"disconnected" and used as self-defense applications.

The DVD is well made in chapters and sub-chapters.
The explanation and filming is excellent.

I highly recommand this DVD, it is a certainly a "eye-opener"
for many traditional karateka.

Knowing Don both as a excellent training partner & instructor,
Being at the receiving end of some of the drills in this DVD,
I can asure you this techniques definetily works !!!

Well done.

Excellent 1st DVD by Don Came from the Vince Morris stable.

All the techniques are shown as progressive flow drills starting from a basic set up and building up to a more complex siutation but all are useful and applicable, and the good thing is, it follows the easy learning function of body motion which can be applied to all Martial Arts.

As you would expect from the Kissaki organisation, there is quite a bit of talk of pressure points for those interested in this aspect of Martial Arts but nothing to deter the inexperienced viewer from purchasing.

All of the drills displayed end in the same common format of a face down take down, with only a slight variation in places, therefore nothing is confusing, you are watching different entries using common techniques ending in the same format.

Nice work, look forward to future releases from Don Came.

I've just purchased "The Kissaki Method" as anyone lucky enough to have attended a Don Came seminar (as I recently have), will realise that the techniques are practical and effective and that these flow drills, are also a great learning tool, (very well presented in this DVD). I like the way the finishing techniques each concluded in similar way, very easy to relate to partner training.

The information, which is solid and useful, is presented and demonstrated in a clear and concise fashion by Don Came, building up step by step. The production quality is excellent and I'd strongly recommend it, as a good addition to anyone's DVD collection, (i.e. anyone interested in practical self-protection).
