In one landmark video production, Paladin has gathered three of their best-selling video authors: veteran cop and martial artist Loren Christensen, boxing and grappling specialist Mark Hatmaker, and Vince Morris, kyusho-jitsu expert and founder of the Kissaki-Kai style of karate. The assignment: to teach you the best defenses they could muster against common street attacks, including a haymaker punch, a front kick, a tackle, a rear choke, a side headlock, and a lapel grab and punch. Drawing from their personal fighting styles and training backgrounds, these experts present their solutions to these same attacks, giving you a unique opportunity to compare and contrast not only their techniques but their teaching styles and fighting philosophies.
This is the ultimate “greatest hits” video and a rare opportunity to compare and contrast martial arts masters and their styles.
Loren Christensen began his law enforcement career in 1967 when he served in the army as a military policeman in the United States and in Vietnam. He joined the Portland, Oregon, Police Bureau in 1972 and retired in 1997. During those years, he specialized in street gangs, defensive tactics, dignitary protection, and patrolling the bizarre streets of skid row. Loren began his martial arts training in 1965 and over the years he has earned 10 black belts, 7 in karate, 2 in jujitsu, 1 in arnis. As an author of 26 books, Christensen has received high praise for his easy-to-read, informative writing style.
