    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Five Stars is not enough!

    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.

    Good strategy

    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!
