    Practical And Effective!

    The name says it all. This is an awesome addition to any blunt weapons program one may be studying. The stick techniques taught can all be easily transferred to be used with a broom stick, crow bar, pipe, etc. I love the breakdown of the basics. From there, Mr. Franco builds on that foundation with stick fighting drills to help you develop body mechanics which translates to power and control. This is a wonderful video and if your "thinking" about buying it; I suggest you do. You won't be disappointed.

    The Bread and Butter of Stick Fighting.
    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5

    I was initially unsure as to whether I would find the information in this video truly beneficial to my training. I wanted to improve my reaction times, by using sticks. I had no need for doubts. The learning just from watching, before I even picked up a stick, was massive. The justifications for each section are supported in reality, not theory. The training drills have brought a new aspect to the training in my house. I love the hubod drills, and now I have one for sticks. If you have ever wanted to expand your training with skills that strengthen your basics, quicken your reactions, and incorporate an additional skill base to your self reliance and defense, then this should be considered. Thanks, Sammy.

    This is an excellent introduction to the use of the stick for street combat. Shows different angles of attack with the stick, and how to increase your striking power when you really need to hit extra hard. Sticks are common, and definitely have their place in self-defense. Become stick-competent.

    How to use a stick as a street weapon
    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5

    I found this video to be very helpful in showing how to use a stick as a street weapon. Mr. Franco demonstrates efficient and practical techniques for the street instead of the fancy moves that can get you killed in real situation. Such things as the proper way to hold the stick, how to strike correctly, and the best angles of attack are shown. There are also plenty of great drills that help improve your empty hand skills as well as your stick proficiency. This video will help you become a more complete and skilled fighter, I highly recommend it.

    Street stick fighting covers everything you need to know about using a stick or bludgeon to defend yourself with an eye towards practicality. Mr Franco demonstrates basic grips strikes and exercises. No complicated patterns or fancy tricks, just good solid techniques you can count on when the chips are down.
