    Excellent video. One of the best that I have ever seen. He teaches you what you need to know to defend yourself on today's streets and in today's world. Highly recommend to anyone wanting to learn to defend themselves.

    Really makes you think

    This is not what I expected... In a good way. These self defense scenarios instead of moves, not like the ones I've seen in martial arts mags or DVDs where the attacker moves like a crash dummy or attacks with a single over committed slow attack then stops and stands there letting the self defense "expert" go to town with flashy moves. If that is what you are looking for, don't buy this! The video has many more realistic although extreme cases of violence played out in a way that is very much real. It really made me think about self defense in a realistic manner and how to use your surroundings to help you.

    Great video!

    It is very rare to find any product offered that teaches about self defense that is actually worth the money. Mr. Franco's street self defense is one of the best I have ever seen. He demonstrates straight forward and efficient techniques to handle some of the most common street attacks. There is no spinning, jumping, or flying in this dvd, just hard hitting, crippling, disabling technique. There are plenty of great armed and unarmed attack scenarios that give you a lot to think about.

    This is the culmination of everything from the series has been building up to: realistic self-defense scenarios. These were not typical karate or traditional martial arts scenarios. These are situations that we have all either been in ourselves or seen happen to others. The videos teaches you how to deal with these efficiently, effectively and safely. The self-defense scenarios include single attackers as well as multiple armed/unarmed criminal attackers. Many of the scenarios are played out in realistic environments with realistic dialogue and acting between Sammy Franco and his students. It's my opinion that everyone who watches and studies this will be equipped with knowledge to deal many common self-defense scenarios. Definitely check it out.

    This video covers situations that anyone might find themselves in. There is nothing flashy here, only quick and simple movements ˆ the ones that work to get the job done and you home safe. Examples are shown in real time and in slow motion leaving nothing out for the viewer.

    I'm totally agree that this video. It helped me improve my self-defense techniques in the street. Although I practice Martial Arts it help me add more techniques that I could use to apply in the street. This is a most-have! Try it!
