Ground fighting is taking the martial arts world by storm . . . but how do you get to the ground safely and end in a prone position? What are the dangers of throwing and taking an opponent over? Geoff teaches you how to control vertical grappling and destroy an assailant with a demolishing throw, including the original 'blow before throw' techniques banned from sport grappling a hundred years ago. Geoff is qualified in all the different forms of grappling and teaches with a realistic bent. A must for any one who wants to survive a close range encounter in a REAL situation. Geoff Thompson draws upon many years of dealing with raw street violence to produce a series of books that treat martial arts with an edge of reality, making them far more reliable as methods of self defence. In this fully illustrated Throws and Take-Downs manual he covers multiple throwing techniques from Sombo Russian Wrestling.
