5.0 out of 5 stars No nonsense self-defence, 9 Dec. 2012

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 140 Combat Moves, 4 x DVD Self Defence Home Study Course (DVD)
Years ago I started training in (shotokan) karate, primarily for self defence reasons. Over time I became proficient in katas, kihon, sparring etc & gained a 1st dan black belt but without ever really developing much expertise in dealing with `real', common, self-defence situations. I know of other karate-ka with similar experiences. For me this 4 disc dvd collection is an excellent resource for filling the gap in my training. No nonsense, seemingly simple defensive techniques covering everything from wild swinging punches, grabs, strangles, ground fighting and knives are covered. Each defence is clearly filmed and explained. Through diligent practice (ideally with a partner) anyone can develop and then draw on a core of effective techniques that will help them deal with the most common types of physical assault they may be confronted with.

Regarding the price, I think this DVD collection is excellent value for money. Comparable products ranging from the excellent G Thompson & P Consterdine to various Krav Maga based systems seem ridiculously expensive in comparison.

Buy it, its excellent!
