By J. Houston Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
One of the main techniques is called "webbing". This is very similar in concept to something that I learned in the Army called "crashing in" - only it's more specific in targeting. One warning to the readers!! Pay attention to the parts in which Sammy is discussing deadly force and when it's applicable. Do NOT skip these parts! If you have to use these techniques in the real world, you will be arrested (even if you're in the right - remember that most cops will want a further investigation before they turn you loose). Your reason for deploying the techniques, as well as what you say afterward, may well be the difference between being prosecuted or not, because these techniques WORK and will cause DAMAGE! Make sure you know the legal justification. I used the "crashing in" principle in a real fight as an MP and I can tell you that it's fast and effective. Mr. Franco's "webbing", combined with "razing", takes it to a potentially lethal level.

By Mick Debonnaire - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I found Sammy Franco many years ago. I have since purchased several of his DVD's. I have a very extensive library of DVD's and books on martial arts, self defense, combat, and survival. As soon as this book became available I knew I had to get it! I was not disappointed. I have not been through the entire manual yet but I would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for hardcore self defense principles. Some you may have seen somewhere before called something else, but the majority is just Sammy coming up with what I can only call "detailed violence". Get your hands on this book and play around with this stuff and you'll see it's effective and simple and could save your life someday. Oh, and let me not forget the part of the book I thought was the best addition...actual drills and conditioning laid out for you! This is what I think lacks from most books on self defense. They teach you the techniques but don't explain HOW to train it properly. Good job Sammy, thank you!

HASH(0x8c51699c) out of 5 stars I can tell you that this is absolutely the best self defense program I have ever seen 1 Aug. 2014
By Ronald E. Mack - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I began training in martial arts in 1968 while in the Army. I started in Tae Kwon Do for the first 10 years, and then studied and taught Jiu Jitso and Akido until two years ago when physical issues prevented my continuing in martial arts. I have attended just about every seminar that was available.
From that background, I can tell you that this is absolutely the best self defense program I have ever seen. This DVD is unique in that it can benefit the experienced practitioner and the novice alike.
In spite of my physical limitations, I depend on what I learned in this DVD to feel comfortable on the street.
Sammy is the real deal, and his instructional material is very simply the best available.

HASH(0x8c516c90) out of 5 stars Please don't... just don't... 14 Oct. 2014
By Arwythur - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
While 3rd grade slap fighting may work on the playground, and maybe might have worked for the author in his hundreds of alluded to encounters, DON't waste the time or money. Go study Krav Maga. I mean the Military version. Okay, to be fair, any system can work, based on the drive and dedication of the specific and individual practitioner. I have seen white belts that "Got it" right off the bat, as well as Black belts that couldn't defeat a toilet stall door.... It's up to you to make a system work for you, but the people who are serious about learning technique that is easy to understand, and that will work for arm chair/coouch warriors, well... Seek a good Krav Maga studio. This system is all flash, and you would get 1000 times more out of any of the Rory Miller DVD's than this.....yeah....

HASH(0x8c516cf0) out of 5 stars Product Review 9 Aug. 2015
By lui - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The best combination is the book and the DVD. They compliment each other. Great tools to build your understanding and skills to apply the concept presented by Mr. Franco. This approach is awesome, being the focus of a vulnerable area, the face. Highly recommend this.
