5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 The Best I've Seen
Reviewer: Michael Jensen (Windsor, Colorado)

I practice a form of martial arts that is supposed to be pretty applicable in real-world situations. Our practice includes gun disarming techniques. I practice these techniques for class, but in the REAL WORLD, I would follow this DVD and do what it says. Common sense says the techniques here are far superior. An awesome DVD.

Reviewer: Sonny (Gulf Breeze, Florida)

I am both a bodyguard and related skill instructor with a lifetime of experience, government, military and civilian sectors. The concise instruction in this video focusing on the vital need to control the weapon. It rebukes numerous DANGEROUS techniques being taught be instructors that obviously have no real world experience with firearms and doubtful have used their poorly thought out techniques which in all likelihood would have resulted in someone being shot. This video shines far and above techniques being presented by numerous martial arts. I highly recommend this video and share these techniques with my students who are working in the field.

Reviewer: Alex (Preston VIC, Australia)

It looks like you can do nothing if assaulted under the gun, doesn't it? Wrong. You can survive and, eventually even defeat the attacker. Wherever the gut is pointed - to your head, chest or stomach there is a real chance to disarm a criminal. This video shows how. As always, Sammy honestly warns about the fact that it should be your last recourse and limitations of this techniques. However, if situation is desperate this technique could save your life!

Contemporary Fighting Arts has a practical and effective gun disarm system. Simple techniques to easily program yourself to do. The best I have seen. UNDER THE GUN is amazing.

Reviewer: Chris Roberts (Lunenburg Ontario, Canada)

I have just watched the Under The Gun video and have decided this might be the most basic, efficient method I have seen for disarming a gun. So often I find self-defense systems try to develop something that is unique for promo purposes when all I really care about is how effective it is. Thanks Sammy.

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Need to know information
Reviewer: Daniel (Fairfax, Virginia)

Ok, so if you are looking for an unrealistic approach to disarming an assailant by doing so crazy spin moves and screaming out some "HI-YAHs" this is not the video for you. However, if you are new to concept of disarming an assailant of a firearm this is a great place to start. It is critical that if you are put in the position of needing to do this, that you know how to do it in the safest manor possible. One chance, one life. If you think you can just wing it without any prior training, you could end up in a body bag. Start training for this life threatening situation here. You won't regret it.

Reviewer: Frank Spinelli (New York, New York)

Straight forward, highly effective and can easily be recalled through muscle memory. Forget any other series filled with unrealistic scenarios-you will not be disappointed. Gun in your face, behind your head, at your stomach or in your rib cage - it's all covered.

Reviewer: Michael (Victoria, Australia)

The material here helps remove the fear of what can be a terrifying situation and replaces it with sound strategies that are simple to recall and highly effective in their application. Even if you think you know it all about gun disarms I'm sure you will still find some very interesting points here.


5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Exceptional instruction!
Reviewer: Carthage (Federal Way, Washington)

These gun disarms are designed for the serious combatant. A true warrior is not going to just submit when a gun is involved and your family is at risk of being killed. This video gives the warrior the technical prowess needed to overcome being "Under The Gun"! Every aspect of defending against a handgun is broken down into small details. Exceptional instruction!


5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 No B.S gun disarms
Reviewer: J.C. Meadows (Dearborn Heights, Michigan)

Under The Gun takes you step by step through the process of building life saving skills against a firearm. No stone is left unturned as Mr. Franco covers everything from the firing sequence of a firearm to gun disarm from the rear. These disarms are effective. No B.S disarms here that could get you killed. Just simple and effective techniques.


4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 No Nonsense
Reviewer: Del (Valdosta, Georgia)

Most people realize that disarming a handgun attacker is a dangerous proposition. Mr. Franco does a fine job in teaching how to deal with this life and death situation. He covers when to attempt a disarm vs. when to comply with the criminal, and several different holdup scenarios. This is a no-nonsense approach to handgun disarmament.


5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Top Notch Gun Disarming Skills
Reviewer: K.P. (Springfield, Illinois)

I must admit that I dont have a lot of experience in any gun disarming tactics, its just something that not a lot of people teach. I was surprised how detailed this dvd is and how street effective these techniques could be. There is no nonsense or fancy moves here, just plain effective gun disarming techniques taught by a top notch instructor. This is a very good addition to anyone who is interested in street self defense, because you never know, you just have to be prepared for anything and everything!


5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 What the Commercial Schools Can't Give You
Reviewer: Hammad (Germantown, Maryland)

It is a shame that in a society where guns are so readily available and violent crime is so common, most people are under the illusion they can defend against an armed assailant by kicking the gun out of his hand or by some other far fetched technique which only works in the movies. The reality is guns are nothing to joke around about, and training to deal with a gun in a self defense encounter leaves no room for half-baked techniques that WILL get you killed in a life or death confrontation. Thankfully, Sammy Franco goes above and beyond, not only breaking down and explaining the five gun-disarming process, but explaining common mistakes made both by students and martial arts schools teaching outmoded gun disarming tactics. As always, Mr. Franco includes a myriad of drills to help you develop the core skills needed in a gun-disarming scenario. Anyone serious about learning to defend himself and his loved ones from the all to real dangers of the streets needs to know how to react at gunpoint, so do not hesitate to buy this.


4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gun Disarms
Reviewer: Richard (Mount Holly Springs, Pennsylvania)

I've trained in the martial arts for over 20 years, and I've seen many different gun disarming techniques. While most of these look good in demonstrations, they are simply unrealistic. After working through the disarming techniques from Sammy's video, I have no doubt about their effectiveness. They might not be flashy, but they are simple and effective. In addition, this video has almost every different gun position you are likely to encounter, so don't expect to work through the material quickly.
