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:


COMBATIVES BOOK+DVD PREVIEW VIDEO Special On-Screen Caption Track Links DVD and Book Content!

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.

Century Martial Arts
Ever since I was four years old martial arts has grown into becoming a large part of my identity. When I first started kenpo karate, I had no idea that this would become a passion which would then turn into something my life revolves around. As I continued my training, I became more and more serious about the art and soon found myself entering competitions.

Eating before your martial arts training is just as important as wearing your Gi. Unfortunately, there is a myth that eating before your workout will hamper your training. As I said, it is a myth. Training on an empty stomach is like driving your car further than the gas you have in the tank. Exactly, you can't.
