Written Summary:

This is primarily a stick fighting tape. On this tape Mr. Saladino shows various stick fighting techniques and drills. Along with that the viewer is shown footwork, strikes, blocks, stick vs. stick defense, and stick vs. knife defense, by Mr. Saladino.

The only drawback on this tape was the lack of detailed explanation offered. Mr. Saladino went through many scenarios in which he didn't offer the level of explanation I think many would need to understand the striking concepts shown.

Although Mr. Saladino is definitely proficient with the stick, I personally found his hand-to-hand techniques the most enjoyable. Mr. Saladino's ability to smoothly flow from one hand-to-hand technique to another, and his amazing hand speed, made me want to see more.
