DVD: Facing Violence—7 Things Every Martial Artist Must Know by Rory Miller
Rory Miller explains seven elements that must be addressed to adapt your self-defense training for the most common types of street violence. Any training that dismisses any of these areas leaves you vulnerable to a potentially deadly violent assault and you might be training yourself to go to jail.
- 1. Legal and ethical implications. Every martial artist must learn force law, and explore his or her own ethical limitations. Mr. Miller explores this issue so you may determine where this often-overlooked ethical line lies within yourself.
- 2. Violence dynamics. Unfortunately, many martial arts and self-defense classes do not train for reality-based violence, focused upon how attacks most-commonly happen. Mr. Miller teaches you to recognize an attack before it happens and know what kind of attack you are facing.
- 3. Avoidance. You will learn and practice escape and evasion, verbal de-escalation, and avoidance of dangerous situations.
- 4. Counter-ambush. In the unfortunate event that you are attacked unexpectedly, you will need a handful of actions trained to reflex level for a sudden violent attack.
- 5. Breaking the freeze. Freezing is almost universal in a sudden attack, even for experienced law personnel and expert martial artists. Students must learn to recognize a freeze and break out of one in order to react to an attack quickly.
- 6. The fight itself. Mr. Miller explains that your training needs to be in line with how violence really happens in the world.
- 7. The aftermath. There are potential legal, psychological, and medical effects of engaging in violence, no matter how justified.
Any teacher or student of self-defense, and any person who desires a deeper understanding of violence needs to understand the concepts taught in this program.
Attack the Attack—Split Second Counterattacks by Jeff Burger
In Attack the Attack, Coach Jeff Burger teaches you to instantly defend yourself and inflict maximum damage at the same time, using dozens of proven techniques.
Whether you are attacked on the street or fighting in the ring, you will only have a split second to react. Street violence is on the rise, and your training must involve simultaneous counters to be effective. The ultimate goal is to develop a reaction that simultaneously improves your position and worsens the position of the attacker—a reaction that protects you and harms him.
This modern principles-based system of defense includes the defensive progression: a chronological breakdown of the attack and all possible outcomes. You will analyze your beat efficiency and determine how many blocks and strikes it takes to complete the task. You’ll learn about the OODA loop (observe, orient, decide, and act)—the neurological steps you go through when reacting.
With Attack the Attack you’ll learn the following:
- Constructive and destructive blocking
- Simultaneous counterattack
- Beat efficiency
- Dozens of techniques and drills
Whether you are a beginner or an experienced martial artist, you will develop a proper mind-set and exceptional self-defense reflexes.
