Split Second Survival FIRST CUT Self-Defense DVD FIRST CUT is two hours of the most effective knife survival techniques dealing with moving and stable blades that you will ever experience! The reason SSS is so effective when it comes to defense against the blade is the concept of NEVER focusing on the blade, coupled with the thought of the victim always becoming an attacker. There are two types of assaults when dealing with the blade. First there is a stable blade attack, such as having a knife against the throat, or in the back, in such a way that an attacker has control over his victim. This is a situation that will most likely happen during a violent assault that involves robbery, rape, or abduction. It is the type of assault you will most likely have to contend with! The second is a moving knife, where an assailant is trying to stab, slash, and cut a victim in any way possible. This is less likely to happen in the street, for people do not usually walk around stabbing or slashing people. First Cut will dispel many of the knife survival techniques that are commonly taught today, showing how focusing on the weapon, and committing both hands can prove to be a deadly mistake... Split Second Survival will absolutely change the way you think about knife survival forever. It will introduce you to concepts you have not seen before since the focus is never on the knife as it is in most self defense systems that try to use disarming techniques such as joint manipulations, pressure points, locks or throws. They do not realize that it is almost impossible for these methods to be effective against powerful multiple attackers. The systems that attempt this type of strike with the mindset that you can block or catch a blade while attempting sweeps, punches and throws, have not given consideration to the realism of the street. It is as simple as that. I do not mean to sound disrespectful to any martial art or system that is out there, just watch this knife series as this series dispel the myths that are on the streets. I am honored and excited to bring the Split Second Survival knife series FIRST CUT to the public. The concepts and techniques will change the way knife defense will be taught now and in the future.
