In this introduction to the nunchaku, Master Song starts you off with the basic nunchaku grip and blocking techniques then quickly puts you on the road to mastering the devastating striking power of the nunchaku. Learn essential striking, whipping and swinging combinations, including catches and transitions.

Since buying this (about 2 months ago) I’ve learned not just the basic strikes and catches, but some awesome looking combinations. The slow motion views really help you get the details down right (and avoid hitting yourself in the head!) while the full speed demonstrations give you something to work toward.

The cane is the only weapon you can legally carry with you everywhere you go and in this comprehensive video, Gordon Oster shows you exactly why the common walking cane is one of the most effective self-defense weapons you can learn.

Begin with the basics of selecting a cane for training and understanding how the various parts of the cane can be used for blocking, striking and pain compliance techniques. You'll learn grip, footwork, targets and even a warm-up to help you avoid injuries during training. Once you have the basics down, Master Oster teaches a series of self-defense applications beginning with the most effective blocking, parrying, stabbing, flailing and striking techniques then progressing to partner scenarios in which you'll learn to defend against grabs, chokes, strikes, kicks and armed attacks.

Finally, for advanced practitioners, there are a number of pain compliance techniques designed to take down and render an attacker harmless without permanent damage. As a special bonus, Master Oster teaches a cane kata with self-defense applications, giving you an excellent way to practice your new skills with or without a partner.

This one of a kind performance begins with a variety of sword arts originating in Korea, Japan and China in the 1500s through 1700s. Next, the masters of Kyung Dang demonstrate rarely seen Korean weapons such including the spear, crescent sword and shield.
