A collection of all three Split Second Survival DVDs. FIRST STRIKE First Strike is a unique street survival concept that is devastatingly effective. It is unique in that it strips away everything that is superfluous, which leaves a program that is based on speed, simplicity and decisive results. As with First Cut and First Shot, the First Strike DVD is tempered around one core principle, EVERYTHING MUST BE ACCOMPLISHED IN ONE SECOND OR LESS! It is the vicious application of this principle that leads the development of all techniques used in the SSS series. Many techniques that were otherwise viable were rejected out-of-hand because they did not meet the one-second rule. First Strike has no martial arts in the program, not because these techniques can't be effective but because they cannot be worked in the SSS one-second mantra. First Strike employs no kicks, joint locks, pressure points, or punching. The First Strike concept focuses on devastating open hand techniques and utilizes an attackers own body's natural reflexes to achieve dramatic closure to a street survival situation. First Strike will not allow you to focus on one attacker, but makes you aware of multiple attackers and weapons. As in all the SSS series First Strike gives you the mndset and corresponding techniques that let you use your attacker as a shield, and their weapons against each other. To a person trained in the martial arts it may be uncomfortable to rely on something new, but before long First Strike will be a primary tool for actual street survival. For the person with no training or survival skills, welcome to a world where you no longer have to be a victim and where survival is in your hands, the world of Split Second Survival. FIRST CUT 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. FIRST SHOT FIRST SHOT is the most intensive, realistic and effective program that you will ever experience. As in the other series, there are no joint locks, take downs, punches, or throws, and it intends to dispel the myths and misconceptions so many instructors teach. The reason they are not taught is the same reason as hand-to-hand and knife, these techniques are not effective. Joint locks, take downs, punches and throws require intensive training and have only a slight possibility of working successfully in a realistic situation. When dealing with firearms your life is on the line. ONE MISTAKE AND YOU ARE DEAD! First Shot teaches defense against pistols and rifles, single and double handgrips, and multiple weapons. I am absolutely certain that the quality, the realism, and the effectiveness of this program will change the way you think about firearm self-defense forever!
