Basic Instincts of Self-Defense [VHS]

9780940149311: Basic Instincts of Self-Defense [VHS]

Learn this easy, no-nonsense, complete system of self-defense. Defeat powerful holds, grabs, chokes, skillful punches, and kicks and use leverages to disable the attacker with devastating locks and throws! The techniques are so simple that you do most of them effectively after only one try! They are very effective thanks to being based on YOUR basic, natural, instinctive reactions that immediately neutralize any attack. The moves and tactics are so sound they virtually eliminate the need for long training and quick reactions. You learn quickly because of NEW teaching methods. Each defense builds on movements you learned earlier. Learn: # How to defend against 55 common attacks by turning the attacker's force against him # How to defeat much stronger attackers without strength or agility # How to defeat all bear hugs and grabs, from the front and from behind # How to protect yourself from skillful punching and kicking attacks # How to throw attackers to the ground or put them in armlocks # How to fall so you will not get hurt if tripped or thrown down # How to defend yourself when the attacker holds you down on the ground # How to eliminate the need for long training and quick reactions # Learn self-defense and stand-up grappling from the best, not the second best. Pawel Nastula won the Judo World Championship in 1995 and 1997 and Olympic gold in 1996, and Magdalena Szewczyk is Poland's Wrestling Champion (Women) and a silver medal winner in Poland's Judo Championship.

From the Contributor:

Most other programs show techniques that, although physically possible, are not likely to be done well by a person under stress and in fear. Not Stadion's "Basic Instincts of Self-Defense." Rare in self-defense instruction, only those techniques that a much weaker and even very intimidated defender can use are shown. The strikes and kicks shown do not require power or accuracy. The defender uses them to distract or position the opponent, to make a joint lock or a throw easier. However, all attacks are done at the attacker's full power--full force, full speed, on target strikes and full-strength holds or grabs. No faking so you see only the moves that work when things are really going bad.

An important way this video is different from others is the "teaching sequence" developed by Stadion's training expert Tom Kurz. He has arranged the techniques in a way that eliminates the need for long training by using as many common elements as possible. Habits developed while learning one technique make learning the next one easier, thanks to Tom's unique teaching sequence.

The techniques (mainly from judo, but also from viet vo dao, sambo, and other arts), demonstrated by Pawl Nastula, 1996 Olympic Judo Champion and 1995 World Champion, were selected by major Grzegorz Piwowarczyk, a military hand-to-hand combat and self-defense instructor in Poland. The video was shot at the Center for Police Training in Legionowo, Poland.
