Many “karate” programs focus on katas which emphasize blocks, strikes and kicks. Coach Martin’s “Fight Skills” program is very much hands on – that is to say “partner drills” where participants practice on each other. This particularly applies to the integration of jiu jitsu into the training. Whether Kenpo self defense, stand-up wrist control and joint locks or ground based jiu jitsu combatives you will learn how effective this program is and how it feels when applied correctly. The experience builds your confidence and ability.

Basic Locks and Twists Vol. 1:
Volume 1 covers the five wrist control locks and flexes plus the “draws” for releasing grabs from the most common attempts your opponent may use to grab and control you. This information emphasizes how joint lock manipulations are used to reverse and release grabs, control your opponent and “lock” their joints so the more they resist the tighter the “lock”. This knowledge gives you the edge; it works on application not strength. Technique description is in depth giving you complete step by step instruction and application.
Areas included: wrist control, basic grip, outside wristlock, inside wristlock, party flex, lifting wrist flex, bent arm wrist flex, draw set intro, push draw, pull draw
Basic Locks and Twists Vol. 2:
Learn how to apply joint lock twists, armlocks and finishing chokes. Many of the moves in the “twists” are the extensions of the “draws”, each set compliments the other. Armlocks are a must. When you get the attackers arm you need to be able to apply armlocks to reverse control of your attacker. And of course this set would not be complete if you didn’t have access to the knowledge of how to “choke” your attacker out. This section teaches you how to properly apply “chokes” from different positions – with this knowledge you can apply a finishing move from more than just behind your attacker.
Areas included: Reverse twist, wrap around, wrap around projection variation, pull twist, push twist, elbow twist, drop elbow twist, circular twist, pinch twist.
Armlock Set: Chop forearm, palm elbow, chop wrap-up, figure four, armbar lock. Choking Set: front choke, rear choke, side choke, cross arm choke, arm triangle choke, single wing.
After completing the “Basic Locks and Twists” DVD series, Coach Martin shows you numerous ways to use this knowledge in practical application. Learn how to use your moves against both uncontrolled and committed attacks. Learn how to work off Coach Martin’s Key Set blocks – setups for even more effective self defense. Learn more about “setting” chokes from self defense techniques. Coach Martin shows you how to set up a “wrist control” drill that you can vary and practice that forces you to develop spontaneous free flow moving from one wrist control technique to another.
This section includes 17 separate videos demonstrating application of Coach Martin’s Kenpo Jiu Jitsu.

How can you shift your attackers balance using “sweeps” to setup your punches and kicks. Coach Martin teaches you how to protect yourself on the ground by setting up a method of tripping your attacker with the “Rolling Guard”.
