Product Description

This is your guide to the martial arts' most devastating trips, sweeps and throws. Mark Mireles has combined his knowledge of wrestling and jujitsu with his many years of experience as a member of the LAPD to put together this collection of street effective takedowns that will stop an attacker cold. Together with veteran cop, author and martial artist Loren W Christensen, Mark takes you step-by-step through each technique and shows you exactly how to apply it when your life depends on it. Mark kicks off your crash course in Street Stoppers with the basics of positioning and targets. From there, jump directly into the trips, sweeps and throws - over 50 solid techniques demonstrated in realistic fighting situations. Mark and Loren also include 15 combination techniques so you will always have a Plan B to fall back on. And throughout the book you will get inside tips on choosing the right technique, gaining the upper hand over your assailant, avoiding injuries and ending a fight quickly. Because this book is written by two expert martial artists who have decades of experience subduing criminals on some of America's meanest streets, you can rest assured that you're getting proven techniques that work.

Really good book, I really liked the throws and takedowns and it even has some gettting up off the ground defenses too. All practical in a self defence situations.

The only problem is that if you or your partner have no throwing or grappling experience (or no one to practice with at all) it makes it very difficult to learn.  Best done with judo or ju-jitsu experience or experienced person to teach.
