Street-proven combatives training doesn't get any more serious than at the Crucible, and it starts with combatives expert and special operations veteran Kelly McCann. You know the name. You know the reputation. In this exclusive video from Paladin Press, McCann combines the hard-hitting unarmed tactics of his combatives system with simple, nasty, go-to techniques for the street. In Volume 1: Brass Tacks Kem-'ba-tivz, McCann shows you how simple, everyday movements can be adapted for combative self-defense. He begins with detailed instruction in how to move your head and body, find the angle, and cut your hips. He then covers what you'll need to establish a bombproof defense based on avoidance, evasion, blocking, and disruption. But just learning these techniques isn't enough, so McCann demonstrates how to apply them to disrupt your opponent's breathing, vision, consciousness, and mobility. This video is designed to minimize the attacker's ability to inflict damage and afford you more lethal striking opportunities. Designed to seamlessly fit an existing training regimen, Brass Tacks Kem-'ba-tivz trims the fat and offers uncomplicated, straightforward tactical solutions for a violent street encounter.
