    Time to Wake Up!
    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5

    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.

    Small fighters against bigger fighters
    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5

    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!

    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.

    Reality Hits Here

    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.

    Close to real street fighting
    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5

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

    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.

    This is how fights really go in the street!
    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5

    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!

    Very Informative video
    4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5

    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.
