Written Summary:

This is the second in a three tape series on Training Drills for Martial Artists by Matt Furey. Overall this three tape video series has some excellent drills that an Instructor can add to his classes. Of the tapes offered I felt that this was the weakest of the three. The material presented in this video is for the most part basic with some of the drills already familiar to some viewers. As stated in the first review this series could of easily been on two tapes. I would of skipped this tape and added the drills in it to tapes one and two. This tape, like the first, deals with solo drills.

Some of the drills included in this video are:

- A pushing exercise to help a person defend against throws.
- Throwing drills.
- Lunge jumping to strengthen the legs
- Drills to develop balance and coordination
- Footwork drills
- several strengthening drills
- sit out drill and the granby roll (this was a good one for class)
- basic forward roll

Overall a good tape with some nice drills in it. Should of just been added to the other two tapes in the series rather than a separate tape.
