Reviewer: Michael Sleep (Hampton New Brunswick , Canada)

This video is an excellent run down on the correct way to throw effective strikes. I recommend CFA products to everyone. If you want to learn how to strike and do it safely and effectively you need this DVD.

Reviewer: Damany (Chattanooga, Tennessee)

I recommend this dvd to the experienced and non-experienced person who wants to learn how to defend themselves in these dangerous streets. I have some knowledge in fighting in the street but I have to admit that I hadn't thought of using some of these upper body weapons that are in the dvd. Now I can truly say I use my entire body as a weapon!

Reviewer: Pat Mulgrew (Statesville, North Calolina)

This video is fun to watch from beginning to end. But, it will take me a very long time to work on and apply all of the techniques discussed on this DVD. It is very easy to understand and puts the beginner/intermediate fighter on the right track. It is also a great review for the advanced fighter.

Reviewer: robert rogus (Park Forest, Illinois)

This is exactly what I was looking for to complement the Chinese system I was taught! The way you taught the punches alone would have cost me a few DVDs from TITLE's catalog (no disrespect to Title Boxing)!

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 5 Stars!
Reviewer: Aaron (Denver, Colorado)

Another must have for any self defense practitioner. Gives powerful insight on mastering upper body weapons to maximize damage when needed!

 

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 You Were Born Armed!
Reviewer: Travis M. (DeQuincy, Louisiana)

In this nation, we were born with the right to keep and bear arms. That's handy considering the fact that each of us were born naturally armed. Sharpen those upper body weapons and learn how to effectively use them with THIS DVD that expands on the lessons previously learned in the Punches, Kicks and Conditioning DVD in The Street Fighting Package. This material is A+ and is a must for every self-defense library...that means yours too!

 

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Owning this, is a no-brainer!
Reviewer: Zeker (Bay Area, California)

I would liken "Armed to the Teeth" Vol. 1+2 as the fine stone you use to perfect the edge of your blade. The "Vintage set" gives you a base foundation, then these refine it to perfection. The proper hand positioning alone is well worth the purchase. Hitting things bare handed is a whole different ball game compared to doing it with gloves during training. Don't train bad habits. This alone will save you time, money & hospital trips. Lots of little specifics in this one. I'm so pleased with it.

 

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Straight to the point!
Reviewer: Steve (Lorton, Virginia)

Great dvd... shows what really works when your life is on the line... Excellent reality dvd that teaches simple moves anyone can learn.

 

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pure Gold!
Reviewer: Kevin Hunley (New Tazewell, Tennessee)

Learn how to really strike on the streets.Sammy not only shows you the technique but also how to train it. Head butts, gouges, punches, palm strikes. Learning the finger jab alone is worth more than the price of this dvd.

 

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Another must have video!
Reviewer: Chris (Cold Spring, New York)

Let's face it, if you EVER get into a street fight, there's no rules. If you think your attacker is gonna give you a chance to fight back, than you're seriously mistaken. A fight is just like War. There are NO RULES....The only rule is to win, by WHATEVER MEANS necessary! Not everybody practices Martial Arts, but I think Sammy's videos are a great start! If winning a fight means biting, using your car keys, eye gouging with your thumbs, a palm strike to the face and breaking kneecaps to win, then "so be it". I'll let the lawyers sort it out after I come away from the fight unharmed. I'm not gonna let some scumbag ruin my life. You shouldn't either! Don't be another "Nightly News" Statistic.....Let Sammy's videos help you! Get this video!

 

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 An Absolute Must!
Reviewer: Tony Flarey (Nashport, Ohio)

This video is an absolute REQUIRED study for anyone that wants to win a street fight and/or self defense situation. If you want to have powerful first strike skills and lead straight, rear cross, hook punches, uppercuts, and head-butts that can destroy / knockout any adversary, you must follow Mr. Franco's Armed to the Teeth! This DVD teaches the ONLY and correct way to use your upper body weapons to conquer any assailant.

Reviewer: paul fedorchak (Succasunna, New Jersey)

Guys, grab this one right away. I thought I knew how to throw a pretty good punch, but after watching Armed To The Teeth Voumel 1, i was dead wrong. Sammy teaches you all the angles and movements of a proper crack you in you chin punch that will have the bad guys whole family feeling the vibrations. Also, some other added surprises. I cant say enough about the techniques i have learned from this dvd. Keep it going guys. Thanks.

Reviewer: Joel (Hickory Creek, Texas)

Sammy shows you the real-deal in this DVD, the strikes Sammy shows are DEVASTATING! Sammy shows great detail in technique and how to properly generate power with your strikes. Believe me, this is one of Sammy's best and an absolute MUST-HAVE!

 

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Love the finger jab technique!
Reviewer: David (Lomita, California)

Great to add to your arsenal of striking techniques. Some strikes i knew, others I never thought of. Great details in how to fire off each one in a street fight. I also like the part about not to use a boxers jab in a fight because you will just piss off the guy! LOL! Great video Mr. Franco!

Reviewer: andrew machin (Manshester, England)

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Not Something You are Used to Seeing!
Reviewer: Damian Jensen (Glendale, Arizona)

When you pop in this dvd for the first time, you will know within a minute what it is about CFA that is so much different and better than what "the other guys" teach! How many dvds have you seen that START by teaching how a head butt is not only an effective street weapon but actually teach you how to perform it effectively and show you the best proficiency drills to develop the skills? I haven't seen ONE! This dvd addresses the dangers of "traditional" techniques and shows what REALLY works!

 

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 The best way to get started
Reviewer: sean sweeney (Baltimore, Maryland)

Armed to the Teeth Volume 1 is a GREAT product for anyone interested in learning, fast, efficient, and powerful striking techniques. Mr. Franco teaches you the most practical and effective ways to use the many upper body weapons you have at your disposal. I wish I had of discovered this material years ago.

Reviewer: Bruce (Boca Raton, Florida)

As a former Marine, who has seen many skirmishes and have the knuckles to prove it, I feel that this is a very useful DVD in teaching how to defend in a real self defense situation. I own several of Sammy's tapes and have learned important information from all of them.

 

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Well worth the price
Reviewer: Joe Davis (Shawnee, Oklahoma)

The techniques show in this video are no nonsense and rather than focus on some that may work Sammy shows you what will work in a self defense situation. I own several CFA dvds and never been disappointed.

 

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Keep it simple!
Reviewer: Sidney (Washington DC, )

Mr. Franco demonstrates the techniques that are the foundation of self defense. This is why CFA is so effective. SIMPLE, DIRECT, DEVASTATING!

Reviewer: Eddie B. (Trabuco Canyon, California)

First off forget about those intricate moves and katas that you learned in traditional martial arts. This video shows you the foundation of your arsenal. To me the simpler the better!

 

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 The best
Reviewer: J.C. Meadows (Dearborn Heights, Michigan)

I love this video. In the world of martial arts this DVD is like a refreshing breeze. Mr. Franco simply gives you the foundation to being able to defend your self in a real world situations. This is the first product I have ever purchased that I didnt think to myself that will get you killed. Thanks Mr. Franco.

 

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Armed indeed!
Reviewer: Vance Voyles (Milwaukie, Oregon)

There are so many instructors out there today who offer DVDs in which they show visually dazling techniques. However these people overlook the most important thing in fighting...The Basics! Mr. Franco goes over the tools and techniques that one must truly internalize in order to become a proficient fighter. That's one of the things I appreciate about Mr. Franco's work. His whole goal is to make you a competent self-defense practitioner.

 

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 A must!
Reviewer: matthew walton (Bristol, Tennessee)

Wonderful! If you don't know where to begin, this is a great place to start. This is the meat and potatoes of the building blocks necessary to learn the different uses of your body weapons. I look back at it constantly. Packed with material and extra pointers!!!

 

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Great!
Reviewer: k. p. (Springfield, Illinois)

For anyone wanting to learn a reality based fighting art, I would recommend CFA and Sammy's videos. I personally have 19 videos with 2 on the way. I would highly recommend that the first two that you get be Armed to the Teeth Volumes 1 and 2. Armed 1 focuses on basic upper body offensive striking techniques. It is very much a high quality video that reveals Sammy's expertise in the fighting arts. His teaching is very good and easy to follow. There are a lot of drills in this video that will help you hone your skills and become a better striker.

 

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 The Core of a Fighter's Arsenal
Reviewer: Hammad (Germantown, Maryland)

You can't build a house without first setting a sound foundation, and this DVD outlines the most common striking and grappling techniques down to the simplest natural body weapon in order to develop those techniques to the fullest. This is the essential beginner's DVD, as Sammy Franco starts from the beginning to explain the proper way to utilize one's natural body weapons, everything from showing how to correctly form a fist to demonstrating how to hone those body weapons for the streets through a number of drills demonstrated by CFA students. It is natural to want to jump in and try to learn as much as possible, but do not fail to acknowledge the importance of the staple skills masterfully illustrated in this DVD. Start your DVD library with Armed to the Teeth Vol. 1!

 

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Good value
Reviewer: James McGarvey (Frederick, Maryland)

This is the perfect DVD for anyone that would like to begin building an offensive arsenal of tools to utilize in a fight. In this DVD, Mr. Franco teaches the devastating upper body weapons of the CFA system. Mr. Franco teaches us how to deploy these weapons to protect ourselves, and also how to avoid hand injuries that are common in street fights. Anyone who is serious about learning how to fight will love this DVD.

 

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 How to fight with your hands
Reviewer: Michael Gruber (Rockville, Maryland)

This video is great for just about everyone even if you think you are a seasoned fighter. The information in this DVD makes complete sense and is explained with precise detail. You learn about some of the body weapons you have and how to use them efficiently and correctly. There are different types of punches covered in this DVD and how to properly throw them to minimize hurting yourself and to simultaneously destroy your opponent. There are some great drills covered in this DVD such as the Dead Mans Drill, focus mitt drills and the cyclone drill. A great buy and certainly important to properly develop your fighting arsenal.

 

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Highly Recommended
Reviewer: Walker (Potomac, Maryland)

The perfect beginners guide to self defense. This DVD is essential if you ever want to even consider learning self defense. In this DVD, Sammy Franco talks about the upper body natural weapons that can be deployed in a street fight. This should definitely be your first purchase if your considering how to defend yourself.

 

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Become a better fighter!
Reviewer: radetri (Providence, Rhode Island)

Regardless of your style and level of training, there is a great deal to learn in this program. Full with excellent precision advice, a range of hand/punching striking techniques are introduced. Nuances of body positioning techniques are taught so punches are delivered far more targeted and forcefully than are taught in martial arts or boxing classes. You will become a far more effective fighter following these guidelines.

 

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Very good!
Reviewer: Tomcatgenius (Valdosta, Georgia)

Very good video on developing the striking arsenal. Lots of practical techniques that I'm confident will get the job done.

 

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

This video focuses on use of many different tools... The good news is, its all gross motor movements. These tools really wont fail you if training properly.. Its a great dvd but you really should get the second dvd to really provide more of an arsenal.
