My Martial Arts Video Collection

Postby Naperville » Tue Aug 13, 2019 6:10 pm

(Updated 08/25/2019)

I have hundreds of martial arts videos on my system and I collect more all of the time. I buy them or I download them from YouTube.

If you live far away from a major inner city on the US East or West Coast, your ability to train is greatly diminished. If you are having a hard time figuring out which videos to purchase, I've spent a long time trying to figure out who is important to follow or what methods may work on the street.

* What videos do you have that might interest someone wanting to train?

* What arts have you studied that might fit in to combatives?


I'M BECOMING: a combatives junkie with a Filipino foundation, who seeks exposure to anything that will hone my self-defense skills, including escrima, arnis, judo, jdk, panantukan, pangamut, kadena de mano, Dog Brothers(Dog Catcher) and ever more esoteric systems.


Taking several martial arts and codifying them in to one system that can be used in hand to hand combat. Assembling a martial arts library, using video and books by the end of 2020. Studying from everyone to develop the best system for any age, any size.

Bruce Lee, "Tao of Jeet Kune Do"
“Use only that which works, and take it from any place you can find it.”

3 RANGES OF COMBAT; nothing cut in to stone: Corto, Medio, and Largo. These are some of the arts that I am going to use to target ranges.

CORTO: Close range, fighting within stretched out arms of opponent:
STILL HAVE TO WORK IN JDK, PANANTUKAN, KADENA DE MANO, AND PANGAMUT. Study Kelly McCann; Paul Vunak; Dog Brothers(Dog Catcher); Ray Dionaldo knife and karambit(FCS and Sayoc); Chris Sayoc knife and karambit(Sayoc); Bobby Taboada (Balintawak); Michael Janich (Martial Blade Concepts); Tim Waid knife(PTK-SMF). Balintawak and Cabales systems are unusual in that they employ medio weapons with a length of 20 to 26 inches in a corto/medio system. Sayoc, Waid, Dionaldo and Janich also put to use techniques that can make use of corto/medio length weapons / folders with blades under 6 inches in length.

MEDIO: Medium reach. If opponents each had 20 to 28 inch long rattan sticks, they would overlap.
Study PTK-SMF, Bahala Na, Cabales, Inayan Serrada / Escrima. These are foundational arts used to "close the gap" or "escape" on opponent.

LARGO: Long reach. Opponent beyond 25 inch reach. You need to know how gaps/distances between opponents work. Study PTK-SMF, Bahala Na, Inayan. These arts reveal fantastic footwork and systems of attack and defense from far beyond arms reach.

Dear Naperville:

Thank you for including some of my MBC videos in your library!

I have a large martial arts video library, but running Paladin's video production department for 10 years really influenced what I've kept and what I've given (or thrown) away.

Some of my personal favorites include:

Jim Grover's Combatives Series and anything else featuring Kelly McCann/Jim Grover
Reflex Action by Bob Orlando
The Slam Set by Joseph Simonet
Maphilindo Silat by Rick Tucci
One Strike, One Kill by Vince Morris (I re-edited this one for Paladin from seminar footage. The original camerawork left a lot to be desired, but the content is excellent)
Cabales Serrada Eskrima Volumes 1 and 2 with Jimmy Tacosa
Wind and Rock Volume 3 with Chris Petrilli
Destroy, Trap, Lock with Kelly Worden
Beyond Brazilian Jujitsu and anything else by Mark Hatmaker

I know there's more, but I need more coffee...

Stay safe,

Mike

Mr Janich, I watched the first video yesterday and it was great! Thank you for the recommendations on what videos to buy. I'll do some more research!!!

I guess I should give a little background on myself so that you know where I'm coming from. I am not a black belt in any martial arts, but I've been in and out of martial arts since I was 9 and I'm 59yrs young right now. I live in the Chicagoland area, and most of the Filipino martial artists (knife experts) that I want to train with are on the coasts, so I'm buying DVDs to get back to training.

I've studied a little bit of: Judo, Chung Mo Quan, Hapkido(Iowa State under Master Pak), Inayan(Jason and Jenna Inay), Mata Sa Bagyo(Guro Carlito Bonjoc), Bahala Na(GM Tony Somera), SLD(Serrada, Largo Mano, Dequerdas with Dexter Labanog), Headhunters(Guro Mike Eugenio), Defensor Method(Guro Nate Defensor). I continue to study with Mata Sa Bagyo and Bahala Na(Master Kirk McCune), albeit very slowly because it is remote training and I had a heart attack and surgery back in late 2017. Right now the way it looks is that I should be back to normal training with Bahala Na and Mata Sa Bagyo in 09/2019. I have around 6 years of martial arts training all together.


YOUR DVDs!

The first video was excellent, and I plan to watch DVD #2 today. It is crystal clear what you are trying to present. You are presenting a defensive art using a 4 inch and under blade, and you are trying to logically limit damage to an opponent. You are not trying to turn out SEALS. This is a good thing. Most people in martial arts show methods and skills that will get you MURDER #1. Everything is very usable and doable. The video is very clear and anyone can train in what you teach from high school on up.

I especially liked the way that you labeled the strike zones, similar to Filipino serrada arts here in the US. It could have been a very complex matter but you knocked it out of the park.

The fact that you tackle mobility of the assailant is important, and I think it's doable. If the assailant is unable to hold a weapon or give chase then the situation has been diffused.

I updated my initial list of recommended videos after some research. It's pretty complete now with what I plan to buy and study. When I get back to work, I'll be going to as many seminars as I can with the instructors listed.

My goal is to take from every eminent instructor the best moves and roll them in to something that I can defend myself with. I will be back to training but it never hurts to have a library of skills to watch and review.

I am interested in knife and hand to hand defense. The larger blade studies help in dealing with people who have longer weapons.

Thanks Jim!

I made a huge mistake by not continuously training my entire life. It's fun and you get to meet great people! Then I left for Silicon Valley and got back in to it. But I missed the opportunity to meet GM Angel Cabales of Cabales Serrada fame, GM Giron of Bahala Na, and GM Mike Inay of Inayan, due to their having passed. I've decided to do whatever I can to train in person with everyone when the funds become available.

I'll do my best to NOT become the old guy that cannot move sitting over in the corner watching. And if I do, I hope that I have tons of cool stories about my teachers.

Naperville,

It's great that you still have so much passion for it!

Me, I've trained continuously since age 13 (I'm 56 now), but have studied different systems throughout my life. Although I was a black belt in Kenpo Karate, I haven't trained that since '83, though my Kenpo teacher still has me listed as one of his black belts. Other arts I've studied include Judo, Shito-Ryu Karate, Taekwondo, Northern Mantis fist (Tanglang quan), and Choy Lee Fut Kung Fu, which I started at 30 and hold a 2nd-degree black sash. Also trained BJJ for a year in my 40s. In the past, attended a seminar by Remy Presas (modern Arnis), and a week-long kickboxing camp by Bill "Superfoot" Wallace, both back in 1982.

In spite of all this, I honestly feel that the longer I train, the more I'm aware of how little I know. And for decades, martial arts was my big focus in life, especially the Mantis and Choy Lee Fut, the latter of which I still train. I even taught my own group for a few years, and although I teach well, I've never felt comfortable as "Sifu" and sucked at the business aspect of it. I prefer to "empty my cup" and just be a practitioner. Now I'm almost exclusively on my own, but it's given me the opportunity to examine my art more deeply than if I was still in a class. It's not so much about style anymore, but simplifying and developing an in-depth understanding of the art, especially the important basic aspects that are often overlooked or taken for granted by many practitioners. Sometimes a little tweak in something simple can make it much more effective. Combine that with your own experience and your art becomes unique to you without trying to be.

Anyway, sorry for rambling on about myself. My intent was only to share with you, because I rarely discuss martial arts openly anymore. I respect that you are so passionate and open-minded about your martial arts training and learning. Black belt or not isn't important. What is important is to have the desire to learn and to train,

Jim

Silicon Valley / NASDAQ had a major correction/contraction in 2002 - 03, and I was part of the fallout. I came back to Illinois looking forward to picking up training where I had left off and there was not much and remains very little in Filipino styles that I am interested in. I contacted my old schools in Stockton and started to train my brother in 2017 but then had a heart attack. Starting over is no problem. We (bro and I) are a little worse for wear, he's on disability but can throw light strikes to get me going and he will be there for the movements.

Around 2015 when I got the itch again, I started to write a "prepper document." In 2017 I started to collect knives because I did not have any, and I had quite a few of them on the document. Yes, I had studied Filipino Knife Arts and did not own ONE edged weapon. NADA, just kitchen knives. Hahahahaha! Now I have 85 knives, and I am using them to sort through what is ultimately useful. Not everything that is shiny is useful. You find that out after you plunk down the cash.

I'm 59 and am looking to be able to defend myself until when I pass. Nobody knows when they are going to pass away so I've been sticking to studying arts and movements that an elderly man can make use of. If I do not think I'd have the muscle strength or agility to pull something off, then I pass on it.

Dear Naperville and Jim:

Thank you both for sharing your backgrounds and insights. Naperville, thank you for the kind words regarding my videos. I'm glad the logic comes through and resonates with you.

FYI, MBC does have representation in Chicagoland. If you're interested in doing any hands-on training in it, you can check out the Instructor Locator on my web site and see which instructors might be accessible to you.

I'm sorry to hear you had a heart attack and commend you for continuing your training. I wish you all the best.

Stay safe,

Mike

Mr Janich, Thank you for your responses.

Many years back I worked out with Keith Jennings (I believe) twice at his folks place and then we spent the evening watching an MMA match on the first meeting at (I think) a Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant. Keith Jennings was a really nice guy, knowledgeable too, unfortunately I lived in Chicago at the time. Now I'm in Naperville, Illinois and I don't think I'm any closer.

When I get back to work I'll figure something out. I have an apartment located in Chicago but I don't live there right now. The apartment is supposed to be renovated at some time in the future, possibly 2020, and I'll have a better idea where I'll be located more permanently.

- HAVE ONLINE ACCESS: ADVANCED LATOSA ESCRIMA Vol. 3 - KNIFE FIGHTING by GM Rene Latosa
https://em3video.com/

The video is twofold. GM Rene Latosa tries to convince you NOT to get in to a knife fight (2 opponents with knives). He lays the foundation throughout the video for the myriad reasons that it is unwise by demonstrating what a knife fighter is trained to do, but says, at most a trained knife fighter will have a 51% chance of winning a knife fight against a committed opponent.


NOTES
Cutting and the Cutting Zone
- Using clear clip board, restrict the knife blade to the area represented by the square area. With knife within the Clip-board space, cut-in and move to center of the clip-board, then withdraw knife. Cut-out, start at center of clip-board with thrust, and cut outward to the edge, pull out. Do this rapidly 3 to 5 times per on Cut-in and Cut-out so that you can target an area.
- Use corkscrew on entry and exit, to deflect objects in the way(blocks).
- Suppressed cuts and strikes. Feints and false attacks will get you cut when you attempt to block, and these are known as suppressed cuts. They effect timing. You go to block, but the opponent is not there, and before you can withdraw the block, you are attacked at the block.
- Transitions from hand to hand combat to a weapon art are expected and desireable. All boxing moves for ex, work with a knife, and translate directly to knife fighting. Throw an upper-cut with a knife, then throw a straight punch, with a knife.
- Train both hands to use a knife so that you are 100% ambedextrious. If one hand is injured, continue with the opposite hand.
- During an attack, throw in an empty hand, a kick, or a second edged weapon.
- With your level of knowledge, could you disarm "yourself?" Can you disarm a novice? Can you disarm somebody motivated / agitated?
- Limit training that will not help you to survive real strikes, real attacks. It's fine to work on eye hand coordination, but keep it reality based. Some drills are for coordination, NOT reality based in any way, avoid these drills

- Dog Brothers

Die Less Often #1 and Die Less Often #2 are a set that need to be purchased and watched together.

- HAVE: Die Less Often #1 (3 DVDs in set)

Highly recommended.

Don't bring a gun to a knife fight, unless you have at a minimum a 25ft distance between you and your opponent. This DVD set deals with attacks occurring within 10ft or less when you have no time to draw a firearm. Have you ever been attacked? With a knife? Want one technique that should work on most threats? Then watch these DVDs.

DVD #1, is good, it is the setup for the last 2 DVDs in the set. This was a Dog Brothers training program that lasted over a 3 day weekend.

Adult language and can be pretty graphic at times, but if you've watched any Hollywood movies in the last decade, it is nothing you cannot handle. There may be an assumption that participants have martial arts experience. A lot of empty hands, everything in the video seems logical. Should be watched by people who carry knives or firearms. Covers average citizen employing and defending their weapons, against weapons. Introduction to knife attacks and how we defeat them. Risk avoidance and the continuum of contact between a hunter and the hunted. Firearm and edged weapon appendix carry vs hip and kidney. Close Quarters Combat from the point of view of both combatants.

DVD #2, getting in to the meat and potatoes of self defense. The Dog Catcher. This is self defense, but we are developing the proper attack against the knife. Knife tapping. Very realistic and well thought out action from many real combative encounters woven in to the DVD. Exciting RESEARCH and EXPERIMENTATION starts at just beyond the midway point of DVD #2!

Even after attending the course, student after student under pressure INITIALLY was unable to do the Dog Catcher requiring planting a head butt, and driving in to their opponent. In the end, pretty much everyone got it! Going right to your firearm, you may be dead against a knife. Communicate with family members prior to attack if knife defense must be employed. The entire DVD needs to be watched to catch the instruction on The Dog Catcher.

TERMS:

- Kali Fence, to have the left foot and shoulder forward, left foot outside of your opponents base.
- Pekiti Hand, (this is part of "Filipino tapping" through the martial art of Pekiti Tersia Kali) if the knife is in your opponents rt hand, your right hand/arm must clear the opponents arm for a block, BELOW your opponents elbow and toward their hand....then using Pekiti tapping, you may swing the arm across your opponents body.

DVD #3, excellent summary DVD with tips and further discussion.


- Dog Brothers
- HAVE: Die Less Often #2 (1 DVD)

Very heavy firearm tactics, but most of this is adaptable to both opponents having knives. Evasion from the line of fire / attack. Forward 2 O'Clock, Horizontal 3 O'Clock, and 5 O'Clock - 30deg Rearward Offline movement. What is the best location for a defensive carry weapon - The Appendix Carry has it's benefits.

What is the best distance and position for a knife or gun fight?

Getting off of the "X"

How and where to move with a firearm.

Drill applying the Dog Catcher...few participants do the Dog Catcher properly. MAKE SURE TO BUY AND WATCH DVD #1. Analysis and teaching of the Dog Catcher.

STOPPED 50 MIN IN. Will complete my review and modify this post this week.

REVIEW OF: Combatives for Street Survival V.1: Index Positions, The Guard and Combative Strikes by Kelly McCann DVD $29.99

Kelly McCann does cover the expected movements very well. What you have to remember is that the people in the video are NOT in combat, so they have to tone down the combatives or they would be hurting their partner. I do believe that these combatives are capable in the right hands.

Muay Thai thigh pads

No weapons are used.

- Guard
* Movement

I'll be reviewing Spyderco's Michael Janich (Yojimbo 2) videos next. I've seen them but I did not take notes and they are very good.
