Written Summary:

In this 2nd tape, Mark Kerr shows the viewer some advanced ways to shoot in, and quickly take an opponent to the ground. The focus of this tape is on an opponent whose moving around. Kerr shows the: "fake step", "pinching leg fall", "slipping a punch", "misdirection", "low leg attacks", "block/sprawl/re-shoot", "changing of attack levels", "body lift/throw", and "trapping/taking down a kicker". This folks, is some "really good stuff"!

My personal favorites were: "pinching leg fall", "low leg attacks", "block/sprawl/re-shoot", "trapping/taking down a kicker". These alone make the tape a MUST HAVE if your a grappling enthusiast and don't already know these techniques. And like the previous tape, Kerr is very thorough in explaining the subtleties of each move. With Panther's Christmas special of 14 tapes for $200 in effect, this is one you'd probably want to add to your WISH LIST.
