5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Time to Wake Up!
Reviewer: Zeker (Bay Area, California)

The days of theoretical scenarios are over. No more intellectualizing your combat responses with others. It's time to put it all to the test. In this video you see people of all levels put into the mix to see what they are capable of. It's amazing to see what happens. To make it even better, Mr. Franco narrates through the fights to tell you what's good and where the mistakes are. What tactics/moves are more beneficial and which ones will head you towards a beating! You get to see it for yourself. Makes the things you've been told not to do, more of a reality. This is a must for anyone serious about ever defending themselves.


5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Small fighters against bigger fighters
Reviewer: Danny T. (Mayaguez, Puerto Rico)

I have to say that this ground pounders video is a kick ass! The part I liked the most was during ground fighting when the small fighters forgot how to escape against the big fighters and Mr. Franco always address their errors. Two thumbs up with this Mr. Franco!


5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Simple street fighting analysis
Reviewer: Luis Garcia (Sabana Grande , Puerto Rico)

I love simple things and this video has the fighting tools without having to go thru a lot of steps. Its easy to learn from the mistakes and the correction Sammy makes after. This is one of the best!


5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Recommended for Reality Based Self Defense
Reviewer: Nelson (Toronto Ontario, Canada)

Watch students spar full contact and listen to Sammy Franco analyze the fights. You will learn a lot watching this video on what to do and what not to do in a full contact encounter! I highly recommend this video to any person studying Reality Based Self Defense.


5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Reality Hits Here
Reviewer: paul fedorchak (Succasunna, New Jersey)

This is very different from some of the others. Full speed beat downs with Sammy Franco himself giving the fighters the final grade. Here you will be able to pick apart a fight and see how quickly the tides turn. Its a video that will make you think as you put yourself in the fighters place as you watch. Very very helpful in the "what would i do if it were me type scenarios". This is one to pick up.


5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Close to real street fighting
Reviewer: Johan Randa (Lund Skane, Sweden)

It shows unrehearsed streetfighting commented by Sammy Franco. This mimicks real street fights so anyone interested in real street fighting should watch these.


4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 GroundPounders
Reviewer: George M. Miner (San Anselmo, California)

The analysis of the fights was good and relevant. It is apparent from watching the fights that fighting defensively and being reluctant to engage in a fight will guarantee you will get an ass whipping. Small and medium sized people especially need to know how to fight on the ground and escape as soon as possible.


5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 This is how fights really go in the street!
Reviewer: Damian Jensen (Glendale, Arizona)

In this video, you get to see real CFA ground pounding! Don't let the couple of pieces of protective gear fool you, these are fights. This dvd shows you what really happens in a street fighting situation, you almost ALWAYS go to the ground, it shows the good, the bad and the ugly of realistic self defense training. The fights are shown once uninterrupted, then again with Sammy doing the commentary and pointing out the critical things you will have missed in watching the first time. Absolutely Invaluable to any serious trainee!


5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Learn Through Watching
Reviewer: radetri (Providence, Rhode Island)

This is a highly informative video that allows viewers to carefully watch the mechanics and nuances of fighting while gaining skillful analysis and fighting pointers from Sammy Franco. This video offers a unique and effective opportunity to study groundfighting by analyzing what is and isn't effective in real time


4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Very Informative video
Reviewer: Del (Valdosta, Georgia)

The fights shown in this video, while not actual streetfights, do provide a great deal of educational value. Mr. Franco's analysis of the fights taught me some things that I hadn't learned in his other resources, and reinforced some of the things I already had learned from his products. A real eye-opener and quite entertaining.


5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Its not a youtube video!
Reviewer: Hammad (Germantown, Maryland)

Our Youtube generation is drowning in an endless sea of stupid punks fighting each other in backyards and parking lots. While the average schmuck watches these kinds of videos for their own barbaric enjoyment, a careful street fighter can pick apart these fights and extract valuable knowledge by analyzing what exactly is going on during the fight. This DVD is packed with 12 indispensable fights of CFA students, not thoughtless miscreants. But what makes this DVD stand above anything else like it is Sammy Franco's commentary on the fights. Mr. Franco points out common mistakes and expounding on important techniques and topics as they arise during the fights. That being said, one must have a sound background in reality based self defense in order to extrapolate the most from this DVD. While Mr. Franco does explain various techniques and tactics, the worth of this DVD is in scrutinizing over the fights yourself and seeing with your own eyes the mistakes and openings Mr. Franco points out. After watching this DVD, I guarantee you won't look at a UFC match or a news clip of a mindless scrap in the same way again.


5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Real street fighting analysis
Reviewer: Michael Gruber (Rockville, Maryland)

This is one of my favorite videos of my CFA collection because I love how you get to watch the fight and then afterwards you get to watch it again but its paused and commented on by Sammy. Its great because during the analysis of the fight, Sammy points out details that you may not have normally picked up whlie watching it. The video shows some very common mistakes made by people when they are in an actual fight. The action is real, hard-core and is not filmed in your typical studio style setting. This DVD shows real deal combat, with the real deal analysis.


5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ground and Pound Video
Reviewer: Richard (Mount Holly Springs, Pennsylvania)

This video clearly demonstrates what happens when you use poor technique or the wrong strategy. Great analysis by Sammy!


3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ground Pounders Video
Reviewer: Hans Ola vJuul (Oslo, Norway)

You can learn a lot about fighting in general. The production quality is not the same as on other CFA DVDs though.
