Joint Locks—Learn to Improvise Joint Locks Under Pressure by Rory Miller
Learn to Improvise Joint Locks Under Pressure
Joint locks are widely regarded as one of the most versatile physical tools-- they can move, immobilize, submit or severely injure a threat. They are also justifiably regarded as one of the more difficult of martial arts skills to implement in real life.
In this video, Rory Miller makes the case that the problem is not with the locks themselves, but with our teaching methods. A principles-based approach allows relative beginners to improvise joint locks with one hour of training, something that many traditional approaches have failed to do with hundreds of hours.
Joint locks are NOT primary self-defense techniques. If you are in a position that requires self-defense you are justified in and likely need a higher level of force. However, if your job requires controlling violent people with minimal injury you must be good at joint locks and you must be able to improvise them under pressure.

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.
INfighting—Develop Your Close-Range Combat Reflexes by Rory Miller
Infighting is close-range combat, in which you defend yourself while simultaneously controlling the opponent’s limbs, transferring his momentum, and forcing him off center.
You will learn basic Infighting Building Blocks, including
- Moving a Body
- Strangles and Chokes
- Spine Manipulation
“What is infighting? You can call it standing grappling. You can call it a variation on clinch range. Infighting is close contact, chest-against-chest, halitosis range. You are close enough to throw, sweep, strike, strangle, gouge, bite...and not too close to kick, if you know how.
Infighting has the most possibilities, and thus the most variables, of any fighting range. And it is quick. Distance is time and if you're fighting at zero distance you have no time to waste. Offense and defense cannot be separated. You must be able to act on your opponent without needing to know what the opponent is doing, because by the time you know, it is too late.
Many traditional arts work better once you play with them as infighting systems. Infighting is the perfect range, and the perfect game, to integrate your other fighting skills into a unified package that functions below the conscious level.”
