P.C.T. Volume 1: Body Manipulations is the start of this series. This instructiol martial arts video series will take you from "the interview" to complete neutralization of the threat. Here, in Volume 1, we will explore tactics from the little known Filipino Martial Arts sub-system of Dumog. Dumog (doo'mog) is a system of Filipino wrestling. Dumog techniques are comprised of a variety of pushes, pulls, weight shifts, and joint wrenches designed to move an opponent. In this video we will look at ways to "eject" or move an uncooperative subject using dumog-based tactics.
In Volume 2: Locks & Holds, a Kali lock-flow is introduced and discussed. Kali is synonymous with the terms for the Filipino Martial Arts Escrima or Arnis. It literally means "body motion". A Kali Lock-Flow is highlighted in Sifu Larry Hartsell's JKD book titled Jeet Kune Do Entering to Trapping to Grappling (c. 1984). The Flow featured in this volume is a modified version of the one featured in Sifu Hartsell's book, but the concept is the same. The lock-flow is included here, because it is usually the next step towards neutralization once a subject has escaped or resisted attempts at Body Manipulations highlighted in Volume 1 of this series.
In Volume 3: Holds & Takedowns we will draw primarily from Silat, an Indonesian pugilistic/grappling art known for its ecclectic yet efficient forward-facing takedowns and throws. We will also explore The 3 Principles of a Good Takedown, and The 3 Prinicples of a Good Hold or Restraint as it relates to securing a subject for detention or arrest.
In this video, flowing through the progression of "The Interview" to body manipulation to a lock or hold, I will share roughly 10 different takedowns and their accompanying holds (give or take a few variations) that have worked for me in neutralizing dangerous situations or individuals throughout the years. I believe the tactics in this video will work for most anyone regardless of size, stature, or gender.
