    Nice work!

    I liked it, simple and straight forward. I can't tell you how many Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon BS "skills" I have been taught. Finally, a great video to train from.

    Glad I got this one.

    I've been training with short weapons, like the baseball bat and rattan stick, for 21 years. The conclusions I've come to from all that experience, Mr. Franco covers on this video with great instruction and in a easy way to learn. He even goes into more depth and specifics than I know, I'm glad my ego didn't get in the way of me watching this video. CFA cuts out the unnecessary and focuses on the essential. Gives logical reasons why not to use the things that may get you into trouble, always making sure to keep you using only the safest practical techniques. As for blunt weapons defense and usage, this is a must have. I'm so glad I reviewed Batters up. It helps me get rid of the old habits that could get me into trouble out in the real world. Another home run from Contemporary Fighting Arts.

    How to stop a baseball bat attack!
    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5

    A bat is a very serious weapon which can kill you or at least, make you invalid. So are you helpless if somebody attacks you with it? No, not at all if you apply effective principles shown in this video. Correct defence position, movements, timing and disarming techniques these are your countermeasures against vicious bat attack. Highly recommend!

    Baseball bat attacks!
    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5

    An excellent compliment to the widow maker and feral fighting dvd programs. The way overlooked vicious baseball bat attack is broken down and explained in a very easy to understand matter of fact way by Mr. Franco. We here about people being bludgeoned (sometimes to death) by people who snap in the streets. I wonder how many of these people would be alright if they had practiced the defenses taught on this video. Better to know this stuff than to know at all.

    Defeat a baseball bat attack.

    Lots of people feel intimidated when that thug gets out of a car with a bat or goes in back of his pickup truck and pulls out a slugger and wants to conduct batting practice on your head. SOLUTION: Pick up the video Batter Up, press play, and watch. Its that simple. Mr. Franco will show you the angles of swings, how to defend, attack, and make the guy eat the bat. Well not really eat it but you get my point. Seriously though, you will come away with the best and i mean the best way to defeat a baseball bat attack.

    A Nightmare Scenario Solved!
    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5

    Among the most feared situations that one may encounter in the "street," being attacked by someone armed with a baseball bat has to be among the worst! The baseball bat is primitive, heavy, brutally unforgiving, and inherently deadly! Where else could you go and learn what will REALLY work against such a weapon? hell.....who else has even dared to broach the subject? None that I have seen! As always, Sammy teaches these defenses using a combination of real world experience, universally effective techniques and a healthy dose of common sense about the realities of such a deadly attack! no sizzle or flashy techniques, just pure realistic defense. An absolute must have for your education in TRUE self defense!

    Samy Franco's "easy to understand" style and presentation is excellent. He goes from point to point that makes a lot of sense. I found myself behaving in such a manner that in case an attack will occur, I will be able to protect myself and all thanks to the muster, Samy Franco. Keep it coming.
