Vol-1, 2 & 3 - This series of Shotokan DVDs is devoted to the various traditional combat and fighting aspects of Shotokan Karate. Multiply martial arts are very popular now. In a good style, such as Shotokan, all aspects of the engagement of a fight are addressed, including far distance, close-quarter, takedowns off of attacks, and various controlling techniques. Also demonstrated is Irimi, which is very rarely seen executed properly in karate. Irimi in Japanese means entering techniques, or better yet, entering mentality, where you beat your opponent to an attack at the moment he decides to attack. This series of Combat Shotokan DVDs covers all of those fighting concepts and principles.
Vol-4 - This DVD covers instruction and numerous techniques in self-defense. It focuses mainly on escaping from various standing grabs, holds, and chokes. These techniques are very simple and basic, but extremely effective with very little practice.
Vol-5 - This DVD contains instruction on Nage Waza (throwing techniques). These are not judo type throws. They are throws executed when your opponent throws a punch at you. There are nine various traditional original throws, using the momentum of the opponent’s punch against you. Also emphasized are the main components of the technique and concept that make each throw effective and realistic.
