Companion to the book of the same name, this DVD presents a comprehensive approach to the throwing principles, strategies, and applications including proper alignment angles, body use, and mechanics of efficient motion. The goal of this DVD is to teach you how to execute devastating martial applications without the use of muscular strength. As Cartmell writes in his introduction to the book:
"...none of the techniques included in this book require any brute strength or the slightest amount of tension. Truly the effectiveness of many of the throws will be greatly reduced or completely lost by the inappropriate use of force (usually too much). We seek to maintain a natural, balanced posture and total relaxation. This point cannot be overemphasized. Throwing an opponent should be as easy as walking about or swinging the arms in space, as in a form. Applying the actual techniques should require no more effort than moving through the form of the throw without another present."
All martial artists, regardless of style or system, will benefit from the study of the principles and techniques presented here.
