These tactics and techniques are well organized for students of all levels. Once again Mr. Franco demonstrates not only the physical side of violence, but also the psychological elements. Great DVD!

Reviewer: Chris (Albany, New York)

I never thought that i would strike first because i thought it was unethical. but out of my curiosity, i got this DVD and it blew my mind. it totally change my view of the situation, because sometimes you get the feeling that this situation in no doubt is going to escalate into a fight and you have no idea what to do other than wait for him to strike. this is where this DVD come in.

Reviewer: Bijeet Dharadhar (Melbourne Victoria, Australia)

First strike is very helpful for anyone who wants to learn the art of self defense in the most easy way, it is very simple to understand and use. The potential offender won't know what's coming. I am very happy to have purchased this one and more to come for sure.

Reviewer: Roger Cormier (Northbridge, Massachusetts)

I just finished watching the First Strike DVD and was blown away by the content. This DVD was everything I thought it would be and more. I wish I had heard about Sammy Franco years ago. I'm sold...just can't figure out what to buy next with so many choices?

Great companion to the "in your face" dvd teaching you simple yet very effective tools arsenal to stop and surprise your violent attacker. Ending with a violent scenario performance by sammy franco himself showing you how it really should be done.

 

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Highly recommended.
Reviewer: Alex (Preston VIC, Australia)

What to do if you exhausted all resources to calm down your opponent but fight is inevitable? Turn it to your advantage and strike first. This DVD will teach you great technique of the first strike. It will show you kicks and punches appropriate for this particular situation; how to use your fingers, palms, elbows… What to do next. Great! Highly recommended.

 

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Five Stars is not enough!
Reviewer: Dal Polunic (Kitchener Ontario, Canada)

If you don't know anything about defending yourself then FIRST STRIKE will show you everything to stun an attacker and avoid a full blown fight. If you are a student of martial arts then try to forget everything you've learned and get back to basics with FIRST STRIKE.

 

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Knockout!
Reviewer: Adrian Ishmael (Toronto Ontario, Canada)

This is one of the best DVD's I have viewed and I grow more CONFIDENT the more I watch it and practise the teachings. This is the Martial Arts of the future! The techniques are approachable and very effective as well as POWERFUL! This DVD can turn you into a very secure and well equipped fighter when you are out there on the streets.These teachings in First Strike can literally "Bail You Out" when you are in a dangerous situation when you have no choice but to make the first move. I have to say that after watching this great DVD... I am transformed!

 

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Good strategy
Reviewer: Danny (Mayaguez, Puerto Rico)

Great DVD for offensive skills! The part that I liked the most was the strategic hand position because I didn't know that it was the best technique that you can have for the upper hand. Thank you Mr. Franco for let us learn more about street self-defense!

Reviewer: Dave Faustino (Holland, Pennsylvania)

First strike was an awesome video!

 

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 First Strike
Reviewer: michael kaspian (Portola, California)

Thank you Mr. Franco for having the guts to say it like it is! Strike first and with some authority and you have a greater chance of surviving a violent encounter.I love the fact that the tool for delivery is the de-escalation stance! Forget self defense-blast 'em!

 

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Comprehensive!
Reviewer: zeker (Bay Area, California)

Straight and to the point. You are not left having any questions after viewing this DVD in regards to the first strike. This will give you insight into the realm of dealing with confrontations. And when defending yourself preemptively is justified, a well thought out approach to apply it.

 

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 First Things First!
Reviewer: paul fedorchak (Succasunna, New Jersey)

Talk about first things first!! The DVD First Strike really opened my mind into the thought process of how to deliver and effective first strike when the situation at hand forces your hand!! I feel much more confident now if some street thug ever gets close and aggressive towards me. Mr. Franco has a unique way of teaching you quick, powerful, intelligent, effective, supercharged tools to carry with you when you hit the streets. I have a 4 month old boy now with my wife and protecting my family is first on my list. Thanks for offering such outstanding dvd's.

 

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Take Them out!
Reviewer: Joel (Hickory Creek, Texas)

Sammy covers the most important (in my opinion) weapon in street survival, the pre-emptive strike! Sammy does an awesome job in teaching how set up and lay down the baddie who makes the mistake of entering your space! This concept you won't learn in your typical strip-mall dojo, and Sammy teaches it better than anyone! A must have!

 

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Important Training
Reviewer: Michael Franklin (Perth, Great Britain)

The companion book to this dvd is a must read but the dvd itself helps you see clearly when and how an encroacher must be put down. The attacking combinations are outstanding and the bonus footage at the end is a good review of important knowledge.

 

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Don't You Wish You Left Me Alone!
Reviewer: Anthony Flarey (Nashport, Ohio)

This street self defense video is a MUST! If you think," if he hits me first, I'll kick his a- -"; you are DEAD wrong! Mr. Franco will teach you why and show you how to make your assailant wish he did not encroach you. Give yourself the winning edge and get home safe; buy this video!

Reviewer: malcolm cosby (Wilmington, North Calolina)

This DVD is first rate.Sammy Franco breaks it down simple and straight.These are skills that could definitly save your life. I got just the DVD but after watching it I am going to get the book too. Also, the seminar footage at the end of the video is a plus.

 

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Simple and fast
Reviewer: Stephen Arend (Kingman, Arizona)

Sammy Franco takes you through a few simple, realistic techniques. I like the attacking from the de-escalation stance. It is important to identify yourself as the victim in any assault, and I was amazed at how fast the attacks can be. There is nothing complex in this DVD. There are only useful and effective first strikes.

 

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Very innovative!
Reviewer: Joe Davis (Shawnee, Oklahoma)

This dvd does not hold back and is packed with alot of useful information. Sammy delivers on this dvd and shows you the techniques that can determine the outcome in a encounter with a street thug. Its a fact that if you want to survive and go home at the end of the night these techniques are what you can add to your self defense arsenal.

 

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Important Skills
Reviewer: Ben (Victoria, Australia)

I feel that learning to pre-emptively strike is one of the most important skills after you have learnt to deal with the encroachment. If you are against a much bigger, stronger attacker or multiple attackers, then this is needed. You will learn multiple strikes from a passive stance and also how to put them together in combos, as one strike isn't always enough. This dvd will teach you how to do this, and it will teach you well.

 

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 How to win by striking first!
Reviewer: Glen V. (SAINT) (Auckland, New Zealand)

This First Strike strategy should be the bread and butter of any training regime. This mindset is what allows street fighters to win. The person striking first has the advantage in a fight. Forget the dojo safety of 'your turn, my turn'. Fighting outside the confines of sport is not turn based, but one long blast of blows: someone attacking, someone defending. This DVD shows you how to ensure you are the one controlling the win. As with other CFA instructional DVD's, First Strike is instantly understood and with the scenario section you will see just how devastating and essential the strategy is. Anyone thinking that this way of fighting is unfair just wants you to lose. All the tools are presented in a practical way. All the scenarios are realistic and show the tools of First Strike in action. All instruction is broken down, and can be copied by anyone with the desire to win. All the training in the world will have been wasted if you are running on the defensive, so get this DVD, and enhance your training.

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 What you need to know for the Streets
Reviewer: Eddie B (Trabuco Canyon, California)

This is what it's all about! No nonsense approach to that bad guy who just needs to be put in his place! All altercations can be avoided but when all else fails have First Strike in your tool box. You won't be disappointed.

 

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 This is the one!
Reviewer: Philip (Boca Raton, Florida)

Sammy at his best, this DVD is the must have out of all the must haves... Quick, concise explanation of how to deal with the likely encounter on the street. Sammy explains the moral and legal aspect as well as the 1st strike and follow-up to make sure that you‚re the one still standing. You might not start the fight, but you will be finishing it with this DVD.

First Strike is the absolute most important video to own from this website. PERIOD!! This DVD will teach you how to effectively assess a situation and determine if it's a threat or not. Sammy Franco goes into tremendous detail on how to launch a First Strike. He effectively talks about the legal ramifications of launching a first strike. This DVD is a MUST HAVE!!!

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Awesome!
Reviewer: mleone (Wesport, Connecticut)

This dvd is awesome because it teaches strategy. It allows you to hit hard, hit fast and hit with authority. It also teaches many deceptive concepts in order to set up your enemy and deliver strikes that can cripple your opponent for a few seconds while you deliver a compound attack..
