|The market is filled with self-defense DVDs, and many of them are quite good. But most of these videos were designed for a specific audience. For their self-defense applications to work, you have to be in good physical shape, well trained in fighting techniques, and able to implement new strategies and tactics into your existing curriculum. Now Paladin Press is pleased to offer Dana Easterling's Combative Kyusho, the first one-size-fits-all self-defense video that truly works.
The art of Combative Kyusho resulted from many years of study and research by Easterling into the original kyusho-jitsu of Okinawa, military close combat, and traditional Chinese medicine. The beauty of this new training approach is that it prepares anyone to defend against a knife attack – regardless of gender, size, strength, or age – by targeting the right pressure points in the most vulnerable areas on the body. Once Easterling has explained the fundamentals of his art, from pressure points and the cycle of control to positions and angles of attack, he focuses on the ranges of attacks: body contact, close contact, and long range. Best of all, he shows you effective preemptive strikes that may well prevent an attack from occurring at all.
It would be misleading to state that Combative Kyusho (or any other self-defense video or training program) can guarantee success against any knife attack you may face. But it would be accurate to say that this video can ensure that your gender, size, or age will not be your weakness in such an attack.
