The system presented on the DVD Basic Instincts of Self-Defense consists of true self-defense techniques, those that are simple enough to be learned quickly, that are reliable, that do not require super-human reflexes, and that can be turned into “accidents” at will. What is more, the effects (on the assailant’s body) of practically all the techniques of Basic Instincts of Self-Defense can be used to prove that the techniques were applied in self-defense, and not in an attack.

Escape any mugging hold, grab, or choke! Defeat kicks and strikes and disable the attacker with devastating locks and throws!
Learn this easy, no-nonsense, complete system of self-defense. The techniques are so simple that most of them can be done effectively after only one try! They are very effective thanks to being based on your basic, natural, instinctive reactions that immediately neutralize an attack.

You will learn:

How to defend against 55 common attacks by turning the attacker’s force against him

  • How to defeat much stronger attackers without strength or agility
  • How to defeat all bear hugs and grabs, from the front and from behind
  • How to protect yourself from skillful punching and kicking attacks
  • How to throw attackers to the ground or put them in armlocks
  • How to fall so you will not get hurt if tripped or thrown down
  • How to defend yourself when the attacker holds you down on the ground
  • How to eliminate the need for long training and quick reactions

This system relies on movements that are simple and easy to master. The easier the move the better it will work for you in the stress of a fight. You will learn quickly because of NEW teaching methods. All techniques of this system have many common elements, so the habits developed while learning one technique will make learning the next one even easier. Your reactions will become automatic, which will cut down on decision making under stress. The fewer decisions, the faster your reactions.

This system will increase your confidence—something that bullies and muggers sense and are afraid of, so they will leave you alone.

    I ordered this so long ago that i can not recall it very well and wonders why you are asking for a review years later.

      Because our shopping cart software just got an upgrade, and now it can ask all customers for reviews, so it did.

    A lot of self defense materials claim to be instinctive and simple and aren’t. This really is instinctive, I’ve seen a lot of instruction, and a lot of real fight footage, from MMA to YouTube fights and I didn’t think “this is unrealistic” once. This is an incredibly dense dvd, I have genuinely never seen anything like it. Don’t let the “old” production values fool you, the quality is outstanding and the men and women are real martial artists from a real competitive full contact martial art, Olympic Judo. There’s no standing around a compliant partner, there’s no reliance on extreme athletic abilities, this is what real Judo and real Jiu Jitsu was created for.

    Thanks for creating this, it makes sense and is accessible. It’s a crying shame it isn’t better known.
