Adam Chan’s Core Self Defense Series is the result of almost 25 years of research, training and pressure testing to find out what really works in a fight. Adam believes that in order to consider any form of self defense complete it MUST address the following topics.
- Awareness And Avoidance Of A Potential Attack
- Development Of Strong Attacks
- Pre-emptive Attacks
- The Ability To Finish The Fight
- Post- Fight Trauma
Listed in order of priority, this list provides the framework for Core Self Defense.
This DVD set also has a unique layout that has yet to be seen in an Instructional Self defense series. Each DVD is broken down into the following three parts to make sure you absorb the most out of each lesson.
- Detailed Introduction to the Ideas and concepts of the lesson
- Step-by-step Instruction to the techniques and strategies with several variations of each technique so you can choose the one that fits you best!
- An Interview with Adam Chan where he addresses the most frequently asked questions asked about that lesson.
This is a critical non-biased look at fighting – dissecting many aspects in order to come up with a fighting system that is not only simple, direct and effective, but can be learned by any able-bodied person. The system not only covers the physical side of self defense, but also the often forgotten mental aspects such as:
- The Effects Of The Adrenaline
- Dealing With Fear
- How Criminals Choose Their Targets
- Set-ups And Traps That Criminals Use
- Instinctive Pre-fight Rituals
- How To Recognize An Imminent Attack
- How To Use Dialogue To Your Advantage
What You’ll Learn In Pragmatic Martial Arts – Core Self Defense 12 Volume Set?
1. Power Punching
This lesson teaches the fundamentals of how to develop explosive powerful punches by using proper body mechanics.
2. Power Kicking
This lessons gives you the tools to develop a kick that easily snap a leg and end the fight.
3. Pre-Emptive Punching
The pre-emptive strike is known in the world of self defense as “the only consistently reliable self defense technique”. But that is only if you know when and how to do so. This lessons you not only how to throw an effective pre-emptive attack, but how to tell if your attacker is about to strike by watching for a few tell-tale signs.
4. Pre-emptive Kicking
Pre-emptive kicking goes into the concepts and exercises that allow you to use your feet to end the fight before it even begins.
5. Counter Punching
The drills and exercises here show you what to do when you are on the defensive, and must counter a punch to avoid getting hit.
6. Countering the Restraint
What do you do if a larger person grabs you? What about a bear hug? Or a wrist lock? This lesson will provide you with the knowledge and the tools to deal quickly and effectively with such an attack.
7. Countering the Tackle
With MMA (mixed Martial Arts) being the latest craze, more and more people want to take the fight to the ground. In a street fight it is not only dangerous to fight on the ground, it can be downright suicidal. Countering the tackle shows us how to spot a tackle in its earliest stage giving us time to respond and stay on our feet.
8. Counter Kicking
At the right distance, a single kick sustained to your knee or groin could be enough to cause permanent injury. In Counter Kicking, Adam teaches you how to safely respond to and deal with a kick from your attacker.
9. The Obstruction
When on the offensive you’re bound to have some of your attacks blocked. This DVD shows you how to continue your attack without becoming susceptible to counters.
When on the offensive, your attacks will cause your opponents body to trigger one of a few “flinch responses”. The cover is the most common as it is very effective in reducing the amount of damage sustained. This lesson will show you how we can use it’s predictability to choose our targets and end the fight.
When we are forced to fight, we must not let up until the fight is over or until we have made enough time for an escape. Giving your attacker any breathing space will allow him to recover (and probably pull a weapon). This lesson deals specifically with preventing your attacker from getting the second chance he needs to turn you into a victim.
