Overall Written Summary:
Tony Blauer is the " king " when it comes to dealing with the psychological
side of street self defense. He deals with both sides of the equation, you and the
attacker, but the focus of a lot of his training is based on learning to control
and use " the inner beast " inside of everyone regardless of gender, age,
etc. A lot of people teach one technique after another, on and on, ad infinitum.
But how many techniques does a person really need to adequately defend themselves
in a street confrontation? Tony Blauer addresses this problem and others in "
Science of the Sucker Punch ".
The tape opens with some basic drills to learn some basic street fighting strikes
and counterattacks such as eye attacks, knees, and shin kicks. Mr. Blauer makes a
point to broadly define a " sucker punch " as any kind of surprise attack
or ambush which is unannounced and comes without warning.
Mr. Blauer teaches the viewer how to lull a potential attacker into a sense of
false security by showing a variety of different " submissive stances "
which are actually fighting stances in disguise. There is some really interesting
stuff in here as Mr. Blauer shows a few drills to teach the student how to flow from
one submissive stance to another and how to deal with not showing what he calls "
incongruous behavior " ( body language that does match verbal language ). The
use of the various submissive stances gives the viewer the element of surprise when
used correctly. While this may sound obvious and simple, it really is not when you
watch how Mr. Blauer breaks everything down and explains, in great detail, the reasons
behind what he is teaching. He gives the viewer a wealth of ideas to draw on and
encourages the student to use his own experiences and body language to "personalize
" this aspect of his system.
Mr. Blauer sequentially takes the viewer through things such as the " Acid
Test " drill and totality practice, all of which are so valuable and so important
to being able to have confidence in one's abilitiy to defend oneself. I love it when
Mr. Blauer emphasizes that this kind of training must be "wired in " through
practice. Watching it and doing it are two different things. I could not agree more.
This video is not a technique video but is really a conceptual approach to video
training. As in all of Mr. Blauer's stuff, he is right on target. I highly recommend
this video to martial artists of all skill levels. Dojo sparring is one thing. Defending
yourself on the street is quite another. This is stuff you can teach your kids, your
wife, and 5th degree black belts. Everyone can benefit from this tape.
