Advanced Self Defense Trapping Set

In Self Defense Training Series

Trapping Set

You have seen it on TV, you’ve seen it in the movies, how did they trap their opponent’s arms and then punch before their opponent could block. The “Trapping Set” DVD focuses on just the eight specific “Gung-Fu” traps from the Kenpo Set Karate “Punching Set Two” DVD. The traps are a great setup for complimenting other martial art hand techniques. These moves are a great supplement to any martial artist and help build your timing and hand speed. A great DVD for those who are after just the meat of the setting up “trapping” defenses!

In Self Defense Training Series

Self Defense Set 3

What if the situation you trained for changes? What if an attacker tries to pull your hair? Pushes you or grabs your shoulder and intends to punch your lights out! “Self Defense Set Three” answers those questions plus teaches you even more options for techniques you have already learned in the Self Defense Training Series. More options means you can be better prepared for whatever attack you may be confronted with. More options means more ways to defend when the situations change. Being prepared is better than not being ready to defend yourself or your family. Get more – get “Self Defense Set Three”.

“Self Defense Set Three” completes your training in the “grab arts” of Kenpo Set Karate at the advanced level. Many of these techniques are also used in the soft style Kata’s of Kenpo Set. Several techniques are expanded answering the “what if” question. This set compliments the techniques of pervious sets in your training to the Black Belt level in Kenpo Set Karate.  A must for testing!

Why I Train

  I train because:

Somewhere a true believer is training to kill us. He is training with minimal food or water, in austere conditions, training day and night. The only thing clean on him is his weapon. He doesn't worry about what workout to do - his ruck weighs what it weighs; his runs end when the enemy stops chasing him. He is not concerned about 'how hard it is;' he knows either he wins or dies. He doesn't go home at night, he is home. He knows only the cause.

For this reason, we do not quit.
