    A True Street Encounter
    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5

    I recommend this for everyone, especially those who is the "lone wolf" type of person; who walks alone most of the time. Rat Pack was the first dvd i've ever purchased from Sammy Franco, and from that then on, I would like to start owning a collection of his dvd's. In the real world, thugs and gangsters roam the streets in packs. You see them everywhere; in malls, streets, sidewalks, in their cars, and also in SCHOOLS. I asked if the person who is reading this whether they are in high school because usually most fights happen in high school and cliques and groups start to form. This dvd is very useful in the real world because one day when your walking alone, some thugs might mess with you for the fun of it, or just simply teach you a lesson because they just don't like you. In the real world, there is NO rules; the one on one rule is DEAD. It's either you prepare yourself in any situation or you get beaten to a pulp. I luckily bought this DVD during high school because there were people who posed as a threat to me and they roam around the schools and public places; thinking that they own the place. And that really ticks me off. One day I was confronted with a group of people who wanted to beat me up because I was in there way. So I did what Sammy taught me to do and made sure that I didn't do anything wrong like being surrounded; this is one of the few things Sammy teaches you. So at the end I got away with only a bruise to the arm while the others were restrained by officers, who luckily came in time before I get more bruised up. Now if you are wanting to know, there were four guys vs. me. Now I don't care if you believe me or not, but after that day, I was confident and thankful for Sammy Franco for teaching me the ways of defending from multiple attackers. Also, everyone knows that in martial arts, they of course teach you to defend from multiple attackers, but not the real world way. In some martial arts, the attackers attack you turn by turn. What I really appreciate about Sammy Franco's DvD is it's real world scenario's. Instead of turn by turn attackers, in the real world they would go at you all at once and he shows you what to do in these situations. Now Mr. Franco shows you how to determine the Leader of the group, the right way and the wrong way of defending yourself, like not getting surrounded, vital target areas, and much more. I tell you what, when I first watched this dvd, it really got me pumped up because the real world scenario's were scary real life situations. If you plan to show your little kids this dvd, just remember that it IS very violent and will scare your kids. But it will help them in their future one day. I also recommend a dvd from Sammy Franco's library that will teach you combat skills which would be very useful with this dvd.

    Good information!
    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5

    RAT PACKED is a good dvd for those who want to know the REALISTIC approach to a multiple attacker situation. It's NOT like the movies where one guy just line em up and knock em down one by one. In fact Sammy explains the type of attacks you can possibly face when dealing with multiple opponents, There is one thing he explains in the dvd that is actually the MOST IMPORTANT component to the multiple attacker situation that not too many instructors TEACH. There are also drills you can practice at home or at an open gym with your friends. I want everyone to know that no matter what art you train in, this dvd is a good compliment to your discipline and a wonderful addition to your library. Again I must state....THIS IS A REALISTIC APPROACH NOT A CHOREOGRAPHED DOJO APPROACH. I RESPECT ALL ARTS AND DISCIPLINES BUT to get the most out of this dvd you have got to be open minded and most importantly REALISTIC.

    Mass Attack Defense Must Have

    Most martial arts programs don't teach or ineffectively teach mass attack defense. This video presents a realistic and effective approach to mass attack defense.

    Instructor Sammy Franco revolutionizes our perspective of defense & fighting ability concepts, by sharing with no constraints, his reality based knowledge & training, in dealing with the All To Often, Multiple Attacker Scenario. This DVD doesn't try to sell you a bunch of Temple Mumbo Jumbo, nothing but Pure, Tested, Survivalist Combative Skills to those who choose not to be victimized by gang-banger bullies of this Era. You Will Go Home After this DVD!!!

    Rat Packed is easily the best DVD on the subject of multiple attackers availble. Mr. Franco covers the types of encroachments, tactics, and plenty of drills to sharpen your skills. This DVD is really in depth and helps tip the odds in your favor when you have fight more than one person. I highly recommend this to anyone who needs to know how to defend themselves against more than one person.

    The Game Of Numbers
    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5

    We have all heard or seen the stories on the late night news. Somebody walking home one day minding their own bussiness and the next thing you know, two or three street thugs give them a beat down or worse. Its not because they didnt have the guts to fight back but its because they didnt know the RIGHT way to fight back. Yes, when fighting multiple attackers there is a completely different approach and strategy when dealing with more than one. Enter Mr. Sammy Franco. The man will give you all the RIGHT tools, knowledge, and confidence to meet and defeat these so called tough guys who feel strong in numbers. This happens to people more than you think. Be prepared by letting Mr. Franco show you all the details for surviving. This dvd is one you must have.
