Fighting is difficult enough when you've got space and unrestricted movement–it's much more dangerous when you don't. In his latest video release, Car Kem-'ba-tivz: Fighting in Confined Spaces, well-known Paladin author and combatives expert Kelly McCann provides you with wickedly effective techniques for use in and around vehicles. With this release, the first product in the Kem- 'ba-tivz—Sudden Violence Series, Paladin is proud to offer the first video filmed on location at McCann's new Kem-'ba-tivz Civilian Training Center in Fredericksburg, Virginia, which is finally making his hard-hitting brand of combatives accessible to civilians.
Violent crime is on the rise in the United States, and more and more assaults are taking place in and around vehicles. Carjackings, strong-arm robberies, rapes, and assaults are difficult to defend against when you're trapped, with little or no room to maneuver, generate power or even escape. In this exciting new video McCann walks you through several realistic scenarios, including what you should do if a vehicle blocks your path and a gunman approaches, you are forcibly bent over a vehicle hood and being choked or threatened with a weapon, you're shoved into a vehicle and attacked, or you're forced to fight off an attacker who climbs into the passenger seat and attacks you. Brutally efficient, these techniques teach you how to make the best out of a bad situation.
Car Kem-'ba-tivz presents a fast-paced, tight treatment of a real-world problem facing everyone these days. If you know anything about Kelly McCann's instructional products, you know your time and money won't be wasted with this video. For information purposes only. Click here for preview
Street-proven combatives training doesn't get any more serious than at the Crucible, and it starts with combatives expert and special operations veteran Kelly McCann. You know the name. You know the reputation. In this exclusive video from Paladin Press, McCann combines the hard-hitting unarmed tactics of his combatives system with simple, nasty, go-to techniques for the street. In Volume 1: Brass Tacks Kem-'ba-tivz, McCann shows you how simple, everyday movements can be adapted for combative self-defense. He begins with detailed instruction in how to move your head and body, find the angle, and cut your hips. He then covers what you'll need to establish a bombproof defense based on avoidance, evasion, blocking, and disruption. But just learning these techniques isn't enough, so McCann demonstrates how to apply them to disrupt your opponent's breathing, vision, consciousness, and mobility. This video is designed to minimize the attacker's ability to inflict damage and afford you more lethal striking opportunities. Designed to seamlessly fit an existing training regimen, Brass Tacks Kem-'ba-tivz trims the fat and offers uncomplicated, straightforward tactical solutions for a violent street encounter.

One of the reasons why Kelly McCann's Combatives program is respected worldwide is its simplicity: gross motor movements that you can use to brutal efficiency during the chaos of a violent encounter. There are no secret moves, and there's no higher level…until now. In this video, McCann shows you a different strategy of fighting that includes closed hand striking, focusing on how to use your fists to knock out your attacker and win without breaking your hands. This is as close to "advanced" Combatives as it gets, and has previously only been taught to a very select few at the Crucible. Starting with how to train properly to build your strength and toughness, McCann then teaches the most effective strikes to use on the street, from the jab to the cross to the liver punch. From there, he takes you through a series of combinations that seamlessly integrate the Combatives strikes you already know with this new material into a vicious system of unarmed combat. This is not meant to replace Combatives, but to supplement it so that no matter where you find yourself in a fight, you'll be able to take out your opponent as quickly as possible.

For the first time captured on video, this is Kelly McCann's street-proven knife fighting curriculum in its entirety. Functional, simple and lethal, this system doesn't rely on complicated trapping and locking, robotic flow drills claiming to simulate real combat, or finesse-filled knife dancing. Easily recalled under the duress of actual danger, Kem-'ba-tiv Knife vastly increases your reaction speed through its direct movements and straightforward techniques. The goal of this curriculum is to stop the threat, either by inflicting enough pain so that your attacker is unwilling to continue, causing enough damage so that he is unable to continue, or, if necessary, resorting to lethal force. McCann would not teach this system if it hadn't proven itself time and again in the most dangerous environments imaginable. Can other knife fighting systems say the same?

With the prevalence of mixed martial arts in today's media, the street thug now has a new weapon in his arsenal: grappling. You need to be prepared to deal with the MMA-enhanced street fighter, and this video with Kelly McCann will teach you how to take out any mixed martial artist, from the wannabe wrestler to the proficient brawler. Going far beyond the groundfighting material he taught in his best-selling Jim Grover's Combatives series, McCann shows you combatives-oriented defenses against common MMA set-ups such as the devastating triangle choke, the crippling Muay Thai leg kick, the tackle attempt, and much more. McCann's lesson is that you don't have to fear the groundfighter: defeat him with simple, brutal techniques proven through the experience of real-world violent encounters, not half-baked martial arts moves taught by Walter Mittys wearing black. The Crucible's motto is "Nothing we do is competition legal, because your life's no game." Take that to heart and beat the grappler whichever way he tries to attack you.
