NOW AVAILABLE!

The First and Only Complete Self-Defense and Close Combat Course in American Combato (Jen•Do•Tao) on High Quality DVDs!

Currently enrolled students at The Academy of Self-Defense in Seattle will be given a 10% discount if they purchase the 11-DVD Course!

Eleven carefully prepared professional instructional DVDs describe and demonstrate the most practical, powerful, reliable, and authentic skills of no-nonsense, realistic and war-proven unarmed and armed hand-to-hand combat methodology and personal defense developed since WWII! This Course, describing methods from that System developed in the early 1970’s by Bradley J. Steiner, which crystalized into the American Combato (Jen•Do•Tao)™ all-in modern close combat/self-defense martial art in 1975, will teach you how to defend yourself and those you love in any situation! Some of these methods have been copied, imitated, and pirated during the last 25+ years, but a complete self-defense course derived directly from the original and authentic Systemthe only authorized presentation of American Combato — is now available for home study. All of the techniques, all of the theory, and all of the mental conditioning and related doctrine in these DVDs is presented by the System’s originator, Prof. Bradley J. Steiner, himself. Like Fairbairn, Sykes, Applegate, O’Neill, Brown, Begala, and Biddle in the second world war — from whose lineage this modern Martial Art is a direct descendant — Prof. Steiner clearly, simply, and plainly instructs in real world, lifesaving combatives doctrine.

Not one sentence or one technique of that which is contained in this 11-DVD Course has been rehearsed or choreographed ahead of time. Everything you are taught and told has been done “live”, spontaneously, and in “real time” —  so you are in effect receiving private, professional instruction directly from Professor Steiner just as you would if you were in his Studio, personally!

You can order any of the eleven DVDs individually, or you can purchase the entire Course, in which case you pay for only ten DVDs.  You receive one FREE!

Each DVD contains the equivalent instruction normally given in four to eight private lessons. This Course is the equivalent of at least 50 private lessons with Prof. Steiner, personally! At the current cost of private lessons (i.e. $150. per lesson), you are receiving at least $7,500. worth of instruction! And you can review this instruction again and again, and save the DVDs for your children to study when they are old enough. You do not need a teacher to learn from this DVD Course. Everything is demonstrated carefully and slowly enough for you to learn; nothing is presented to “dazzle”, to “show off”,  or to demonstrate “flash” and “sizzle”. Everything is geared to teaching you war-proven practical and reliable skills clearly and well.

Contents:—

DVD #1 FUNDAMENTALS

• How to stand, move, distance, and position yourself

• The combat color code

• Attack mindedness

• Evasive footwork

• How to shield

• “Fairbairn’s Four” —

The chinjab smash, the handaxe chop, the tiger’s claw, and the side kick. All clearly explained and demonstrated so that anyone with no prior experience in any martial art can understand and develop the skills! These are the first four of American Combato’s 16 Key Blows (originally regarded by W.E. Fairbairn as the “most essential” basic blows, comprising a complete mini-system of personal hand-to-hand combat, once mastered).

DVD#2 BASIC BLOWS

• Continuing from “Fairbairn’s Four”, this powerful presentation completes your lessons in the remaining 12 Key Blows — the most practical and effective blows — in unarmed close combat.

— The straight heelpalm

— The knee attack

— The front kick

— The elbow smash

— The fingertips thrust

— The fingertips jab

The snap kick

— The backfist-forearm smash

— The hammerfist-forearm smash

— The basic straight punch

— The ear box

— The throat lock

DVD#3 ATTACK COMBINATIONS – FIRST SERIES

• Powerful and devastatingly effective combinations of attacking actions which are adaptable to an infinite number of situations and emergency circumstances. These attack combinations utilize the Key Blows, and include additional offensive unarmed combat actions and tactics. which enable you to infinitely combine, and improvise limitless sequences and applications of ferocious attacks of your own.

This DVD focuses on attack combinations leading with HANDAXE CHOPS and THRUSTING ACTIONS, the first two categories of “attack combinations” in American Combato.

In this and the next DVD you will learn more combinations of each type than you would ever possibly need.

DVD#4 ATTACK COMBINATIONS – SECOND SERIES

• Completing a well-balanced, comprehensive curriculum in vicious, unconventional, yet simple and readily applicable attacking sequences which enable the practitioner to overwhelm and disable any assailant. These combinations continue to expand your capability with the Key Blows and with other actions and tactics, and turn you into a dangerous, unpredictable, offensive combatant in close quarters combat. You’ll be an expert at taking the battle into the enemy’s camp and attacking your attacker!

This DVD trains you in DISTRACTING LEAD ATTACKS, KICKING LEADS, and MISCELLANEOUS LEADS.

DVD#5 COUNTERATTACKING THE UNARMED FRONTAL ASSAILANT

• No realistic close combat system is worthwhile unless the matter of counterattacking (i.e. reacting to attacks which you have been unable to preempt) is covered. In this DVD you will learn:

— How to immediately react with devastating and decisive

force against any grabbing type attack from the front

— How to break holds that attackers might apply if they catch

you off guard

— How very simply to counter punching or kicking attacks

DVD#6 COUNTERING THE UNARMED REAR ATTACK

• Attacks from behind are deadly. Learn first and foremost to guard against leaving access to your rear. However, if caught unaware, learn

— How to counter sudden grabbing attacks from behind

— How to counter holds that may be applied from behind

DVD#7 COUNTERING KNIFE AND CLUB ATTACKS

The proper tactics and mental ploys applicable to these situations is emphasized. Technically, you will be taught

— How to deal with knife threats, from varying positions

— How to save your life if attack by an adversary who is

determined to slash or to stab you with a knife

— How to counter overhand club attacks

— How to counter the backhand club or baseball bat swing

DVD#8 COUNTERING HANDGUN AND SHOULDER WEAPON THREATS

• Obviously these, like knife and club attacks, are deadly threats and only the simplest, most basic and reliable methods should be studied. No weapon “takeaways” or complicated nonsense here! These are commando type actions and will work under the most adverse conditions. Intended to save lives — not your wallet.

— Frontal handgun threats

— Side handgun threats

— Rear handgun threats

— Frontal shoulder weapon threats

— Side shoulder weapon threats

— Rear shoulder weapon threats

DVD#9 COUNTERING MULTIPLE ATTACKERS

• Key principles and tactics of countering more than a single aggressor

• The core scenarios and how to develop counterattacking capabilities against two or more attackers that really work.

DVD#10 HOW TO USE THE STICK FOR SELF-DEFENSE

• Basic stick techniques

• The complete Fairbairn stick method (beyond what is taught in ALL-IN FIGHTING/GET TOUGH!)

• The United States Marine Corps’s Kengla Technique

• Some advanced stickwork combinations

• How to use the yawara hand stick (for modern applications)

DVD#11 KNIFEWORK

• Psychological factors

• The universal grip (for stiletto and  Bowie type knives, as well as for kitchen, utility, ad all other types of knives, and for improvised stabbing and cutting implements)

• Knife offense

• Defending yourself with a knife

ANNOUNCING  TWO NEW INSTRUCTIONAL


MANUALS!

WE have just completed a 214 page training Manual on “Mental Conditioning For Close Combat And Self-Defense”, by Prof. Bradley J. Steiner. Our visitors have asked repeatedly if we could offer materials for their personal training, and this Manual is sure to be a tremendous aid to anyone training either in our own System, or in any other — if his objective is real combative ability and preparation for emergency defense of himself and those he loves!

MENTAL CONDITIONING IS 90% OF WHAT IT TAKES TO BE PREPARED FOR VIOLENCE, AND REAL WORLD SELF-DEFENSE! This Manual is a “FIRST” AND WILL HELP YOU TO TRAIN YOURSELF TO A PEAK IN REALISTIC PERSONAL READINESS!

If you would like to obtain a copy of this new Manual on a quality CD (that you can either read on your computer screen or print out in a hard copy) we will send you one for $30. AND AS A BONUS WE WILL INCLUDE  PRINTABLE COPIES OF COMBAT JUDO, by Robert L. Carlin, and DEFEND YOURSELF!, by Jack Grover (two books that are collector’s items and would cost a small fortune in their original editions if  you could locate copies!!!) The mental conditioning Manual is highly readable on screen or when printed out. The other two publications should be printed out for study purposes.

This is a hell of a bargain, and we urge  you to take advantage of it. You’ll be receiving a premier first-of-its kind Manual on mental conditioning and two impossible-to-find classic texts on practical self-defense and close combat!

This is considerably below what the cost of a printed copy would be, since modern production costs, packaging, and mailing is now through the roof.

This is not an academic or theoretical study of the subject. It is a forthright how-to-do-it Manual that will instruct, inspire, guide, and motivate you — just as we would if you were our personal student.

Teachers of self-defense and close combat will find a goldmine of information here that will not only help them, but help them to teach their students this absolutely critical subject.

This Manual is comprehensive and extensive. It explains and describes WHAT you must do, and then HOW to do it. It is politically incorrect, direct, and pulls no punches. It is the REAL DEAL, and if you are serious about training yourself for close combat and self-defense you will certainly want to obtain a copy and study it again and again.

Not available from any other source!

Send $30. + $3. p&h (cash or money order payable to Brad Steiner) to us:  Brad Steiner  P.O. Box 15929  Seattle, Washington 98115 USA,

We urge anyone who is serious about self-defense to order a copy of this new Manual today on CD. You will not be disappointed.

Now you can enjoy the finest self-hypnosis programs designed to condition the minds of students for all aspects of personal protection, combatives, and readiness!
