Become lethal instantly. . . not in years but in hours. . . .
Instantly, after just one viewing of this video you will know how to let loose with an unstoppable lethality—if need be …
With a little practice you will put fear into everybody—not just the much titled martial arts “masters” but into experienced street fighters and thugs too.
Now you can see the other side of self-defense—a street fighter’s practice.
This stuff comes from the worst neighborhoods of the Eastern Europe. Why we decided to reveal this private video? (It was shot just to give a few fighting tips for a friend.) Because today more than just your life may depend on your fighting skill . . .
This video shows practice drills of an experienced street fighter. In many confrontations his techniques have never failed him. He shows what is real and how to practice with common street weapons. Observe him to learn the correct techniques and the training drills with a club, hatchet, blackjack, knife, and razor.
If you are serious about your self-defense skills, you will use this video to help you become proficient with these weapons yourself. Why? Because proficiency with the methods of attack is essential for developing working defense skills. In the case of armed attacks the need for proficiency with the weapons and tactics you are likely to encounter is critical for escaping death, or an ugly mauling, or worse . . .
It is best to be skilled with a given weapon and to practice defenses with a partner who is also good with it. Short of that, you can study videos of fighters. At least, viewing such videos gives you an idea what you are up against so you do not have dangerous delusions. At best, you will pick up essential skills for your practice, spot weaknesses of the attacks, and mentally prepare yourself.
Practicing and becoming proficient with weapons your attacker may use give you the following advantages in self-defense:
- You anticipate the potential danger because you know how fast and from what distance the weapons can be used.
- Once you see the weapon, you know what to expect and in what manner it will probably be deployed.
- You do not panic. The situation is familiar and you do not freeze while thinking “What is this?” “Why is this happening to me?” Or, “What do I do now?”
- Through systematic practice with weapons, you may reach a higher level of skill than that of your attacker.
This last point is worth elaborating. Being more skilled with weapons really pays off. Even if you do not have any weapon with you at the time of attack, seeing that the attacker handles his weapon worse than you would will boost your confidence. High confidence will let you act decisively, without doubts and hesitation, instinctively doing what needs to be done. High confidence will let you use your knowledge of the weapon to take advantage of an attacker’s “weak” moments, which a less skilled or more hesitant person would miss.
Learn from the best. G. S. has never lost a fight—for money, life, or limb. He collected debts, settled scores, and provided personal protection in some of the worst neighborhoods of Eastern Europe. Through all the bloody fights he stayed unbeaten, in “one piece,” thanks to his rational technique and the intensity of his simple drills. This video shows the simple moves and simple drills that kept him winning every time.
“Most martial arts and self-defense teachers provide unrealistic attack and defense scenarios against knives and other weapons. Self-Defense: Tools of Attack is a wake up call.
“However, by practicing the weapons techniques shown in the video, you’ll have a much better chance in defending yourself . . . because you’ll know what you’re up against, and can prepare.”
“While the video was not recorded as a step-by-step, detailed instructional medium, it is designed to capture the full intimidating essence of human movement, from an experienced, real-world combatant.
“G.S. demonstrates how he uses each weapon in real time, and where applicable, on a heavy leather punching bag.
“The actions with the impact weapons (short, heavy club, homemade blackjack and a short piece of hydraulic hose) had short, tight powerful movements, using the entire body behind each subtle application. Combined, G.S.’s maneuvering was simultaneously devastating and deceptive in his delivery.
“The knife work was unique in both the kind of knife chosen (hawkbill) and the way it was deployed. The actions G.S. used with this knife where incredibly strong and viciously illusory. Deploying this tool as he demonstrated in this video presentation reveals actions which would be very difficult to stop or defend against.
“The demonstrations of G.S.’s, using the hatchet and the razor remained consistently powerful, tight, and fluid. Given the speed of execution of all his physical abilities, including endurance, simple footwork, level changes and body evasiveness, his simplicity succeeded in misleading the viewer as to what angle the subsequent action would follow. Just when I thought I figured out G.S.’s rhythm, he would catch this viewer with a surprise vector of approach. Impressive!
“This short video provides the viewer with a sense of realism extremely hard to find or come by in the martial arts and self-defense arenas, especially if one does not actually operate in high risk, violent environments at a professional level, which makes this video presentation priceless.”

“This an effective, deadly system of combat that should make the rest of fighting arts nervous.
“Rarely have I seen such efficient use of body mechanics or such mastery with common weapons. This hard hitting, street style of self-defense is real eye-opener to even those who have trained for many years.”

“This short video shook me out of my complacency. I see how far from real were the attacks I learned to defend against. [All because] my practice partners, well meaning as they were, have never seen how these weapons are really used.”
“Why have I decided to publish this short video? I like it. It has no fluff. With just one viewing an intelligent person will know how to use weapons—and if one does the drills one will be too good to be intimidated—even when empty-handed.
“The demonstrator shows the simple moves and simple drills that kept him unbeaten in every fight. This video is the result of his bloody experience and keen insight into `what’ works and how to practice so `it’ works.”
