    Simple and Effective Self-Defense
    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5

    This is the first of many for me with Mr. Franco and I have to say that the information on the video is great. I've already removed a few things from my training such as boxing jabs which really serve no purpose in a street fight. The little simple subtle things that no one really thinks about are what makes this great. I cant emphasize enough the great attention to minor details that can truly help you in a fight situation when your tail is on the line. Sammy THANKS FOR THE HARD WORK I WILL CONTINUE TO PURCHASE AND USE YOUR PRODUCTS!

    Fundamental Self-Defense Techniques
    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5

    This is an excellent video. Sammy Franco really breaks down each technique really well to where it is so easy to understand. He emphasizes why you should and why you shouldn't do certain things. This is really a video everyone interested in real no-nonsense self defense should have. All the basics from footwork to strikes are covered. Probably one of the most important things missing from other types of martial arts videos are the drills. In every CFA training video I have seen, drills are really emphasized. This is very important to those that learn just from the videos because it allows you a way to improve without access to training under a CFA instructor.

    Good RBSD information
    4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5

    This has really good information on how to get started in self defense. It covers the fundamental techniques of CFA and of reality based self defense. This system is rock solid and this is the first step, I think it can even stand on its own to give you at least some training information to protect yourself, but I highly recommend Sammy's other videos to accompany this one. This is a great place to start, even if you know martial arts or self defense, this is great material and will let you know what CFA is about.

    This is the groundwork for reality based self-defense. Mr.Franco says you have to learn how to walk before you can run. And with this it lays the ground work giving the tools to get off to a great start in RBSD. Covers all the Basics needed great Learning tool. A+ rating

    Possibly THE Most Important Title To Own!
    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5

    Okay, look, if you don't know where the foundation is, you can't build a strong house. If you don't know how to stand or even why you do certain things, you're going to make a nice stain on the street. If you start right here, you won't have that problem. Sammy takes you step-by-step on how to start building your street fighting arsenal with this video. You'll learn how to stand and why de-escalation is important. You'll also learn just how to end fights before they begin. Snag a copy while you're here and you're on your way to the total mastery of hand-to-hand combat. It's no B.S. and no smokescreens and no secret ninja moves, Sammy shows you how to defend yourself in real life situations and even how to keep situations from becoming ugly. Highly Recommended and an invaluable introduction to the world of CFA!
