The Combatives for Street Survival Book+DVD Set has been a very successful entry in the ever-expanding Black Belt martial arts multimedia collection. The self-defense content is first-rate, presented by a high-caliber book author and demonstrated on-screen by a dynamic and entertaining modern martial arts instructor. Both the author and presenter in this case are none other than combatives and self-defense expert Kelly McCann, whose no-nonsense approach to fighting has garnered him a reputation for telling it like it is, kicking tail and not waiting around to take names. In his Combatives for Street Survival Book+DVD Set, the acclaimed instructor delineates the principles of combatives and how to execute them concisely, forcefully and with purpose. Both the book and DVD are content-rich, but it should be pointed out that the content in the Combatives for Street Survival DVDs is directly related to the content in the Combatives for Street Survival book -- so much so that we took it upon ourselves to add a special caption track noting where to go in the book for even more in-depth information regarding the subject matter McCann is discussing and demonstrating on-screen. See the video below for an example:

The caption track is an optional feature on each of the three DVDs in the collection, which includes the following: This special option can be triggered by activating the subtitle track on your DVD player or by going to the last page on each Combatives for Street Survival DVD's menu by clicking "more" to move through the pages of available content. On the past page, which features trailers for other Black Belt martial arts DVD titles, you will find the clickable words "Book Pages." Clicking on "Book Pages" will take you to an option page explaining the captioning and offering the option to activate it ("Pages On") or to leave it off ("Pages Off"). When you make your selection, you are then taken back to the main menu. Any tracks you select from that point forward will either have the caption track on or off, depending on the selection you made. This saves valuable time in looking up various topics in the book and prompts you to seek out more information in the book that perhaps Kelly McCann isn't addressing on-screen. After all, books are great for presenting in-depth information requiring verbiage, whereas DVDs are a great medium for presenting live-action demonstrations -- and while the DVDs are surely content-dense, more information means having a higher degree of advantage for your training and therefore for your self-defense on the street and in the field.

By now, you've probably heard all about 52 Blocks — especially because we featured the martial art and its most visible proponent Professor Mo, aka Mahaliel Bethea, on the cover of our magazine last year. Just in case you haven't, know that 52 Blocks is a self-defense system that was spread in American prisons but that actually originated in Africa, according to Professor Mo. That's the reason we titled our June/July 2019 cover story with him "Art of Africa, Not Art of Incarceration."
