Kelly McCann's Combatives 2: Stick & Ground Combat
Following up on the success of Kelly McCann’s Combatives Self-Defense Course — and in response to all who demanded more specialized instruction from the world’s premier combatives teacher — Black Belt produced Kelly McCann Combatives 2: Stick & Ground Combat.
The first half of the video course focuses on the stick, including how to use it for self-defense and how to defend against it should you encounter a thug with one on the street. Kelly McCann covers basic angles, blocks and strikes, then delves into disarms and special applications. Along the way, he addresses power generation, stick usage on the ground and what he’s dubbed the “beatdown defense.”
The second half of Kelly McCann Combatives 2 presents a detailed study of ground fighting. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that translates to a generic grappling course or some form of modified Brazilian jiu-jitsu! Instead, McCann teaches a curriculum composed of “butt work” (shrimping, crabbing and the tactical get-up), the butt-work flow drill, bucking, takedown avoidance, striking, fighting from the top, fighting from the bottom, scrambling, clearing the guard and fish-hooking.
Why should you trust Kelly McCann on subjects as crucial as those? Because he’s been there and done that! A former Marine, he’s spent more than three decades researching the world’s martial arts with an emphasis on boxing, grappling and military fighting methods — including World War II combatives. He’s taken on assignments in the most dangerous parts of the planet, which quickly showed him what worked and what needed to be modified to work. If you’re looking for an instructor who can offer easy-to-learn tactics and techniques that will save your hide in a fight — or that will supplement your main martial art — look no further than Kelly McCann and his Combatives 2 course.
