Bringing the New Year in Old School Style!

Our latest DVD [Black Box 6] has just been released. The video is just a wee-peek at the kindest bit of info included.

Broadly we cover 6 Major Areas of Historical Combat

One-Throwing Hands “Street Dentist” Style

Two-Rough ‘n’ Tumble Clinching

Three-Fat-Out-of-the-Fire Groundwork Combination Fighter Style

Four-Frontier Trade-knife

Five-Mark’s Submission Candy Corner

Six-Old-School Unleaded Conditioning

For a deeper delve into the 6 topics I offer the complete syllabus for Black Box 6 gratis.

[Keep in mind, just because some terminology may match a modern correlate do not assume the details and tactical applications are also equivalent. Au contraire! The Devil is Always in the Details!]

The scholarly may read on…
