In the first volume of his Street Self-Defense System series, fighting instructor Mark Hatmaker shared his hard-core, results-oriented techniques and tactics for prevailing in unarmed encounters. Now he brings the same real-life approach to defeating an armed assailant in Street Self-Defense System: X Weapon Techniques against Armed Attackers.
In this video, Hatmaker defines the concept of "X" weapon, where "X" could mean anything from a situation where both you and your assailant are armed to one in which you are unarmed while your assailant has a weapon that is undrawn so you are unsure exactly what it is right away. "X" could also be a movement pattern, and Hatmaker teaches how to build a self-defense system that will allow you to react instantly to a threat, using the same moves and combinations with any type of weapon, even during a chaotic situation. In this video, you will see that there are many weapons of opportunity in your environment that, properly identified and employed, can serve you well as defensive weapons. Hatmaker demonstrates how these improvised single-hand or double-hand weapons can be used effectively as slashing, thrusting, cudgel, projectile, flexible, or smashing weapons.
Street Self-Defense System: X Weapon Techniques against Armed Attackers presents an impressive array of moving patterns, combinations of movements, cognitive drills, and fluid attacks that can be used to disarm and beat an attacker armed with a weapon. Click here for preview
In the first two volumes of his Street Self-Defense System video series, fighting instructor Mark Hatmaker shared his hard-core, results-oriented techniques and tactics for prevailing in unarmed and armed encounters. In this latest volume, Street Self-Defense System: Outer Limits Drills, he takes you to the next level by providing drills created to apply those techniques and tactics in extreme-stress situations. After all, if what you learn in the drills is not applicable to real life, what good are the drills?
Although these drills were intended to be used with Hatmaker's Street Self-Defense System, you can incorporate the training techniques into your current training curriculum to maximize the results. By following these training principles, you can see what works and what doesn't work for you, and then trim the fat from your self-defense program. The instruction progresses from simple drills geared to becoming proficient at such essentials as vision, respiration, balance and confinement impairments to complex training exercises combining all these techniques into one-on-one or multiple-opponents drills formatted to harden your self-defense skills to meet the unexpected and violent realities of the street.
These drills are not about techniques and intense training—in fact, they were crafted to drain the techniques from the practitioner and move to the next step, where self-defense becomes an instinctive response to violent attacks.

What do you really need to know to fight and win on the ground? Scientific wrestling authority and best-selling Paladin Press author Mark Hatmaker began searching for the answer more than 25 years ago. What he learned the hard way is now available to you in a remarkable new video production from Paladin Press.
The Complete Grappler is a comprehensive multimedia course that hands you the most effective, must-have grappling techniques and skills on a silver platter. The culmination of nearly three decades of painstaking research, documentation, organization and hard-core training and application, this extraordinary package contains everything you need to know to learn to wrestle effectively. Unlike the narrow-minded, style-focused grappling arts that are so popular today, Hatmaker drew his knowledge from the entire spectrum of the grappling arts. Then, through objective analysis and Western empiricism, he distilled it to 380-plus critical skills that form the foundation of true scientific wrestling. In the process, he rediscovered many of the "lost" techniques of history's most famous and infamous wrestlers and incorporated them into this amazing program.
The Complete Grappler presents every one of these moves in meticulous detail and demonstrates them step-by-step, at full speed, and in slow motion from all the camera angles you need to see to truly understand and learn. Hatmaker also organizes his instruction to present offensive techniques, counters to those techniques and finally "re-counters" to the counters. Through this scientific progression, you don't just learn a collection of disjointed techniques; you learn how to chain techniques into winning strategies and tactics that work on the mat and on the street.
This incredible course includes six DVDs containing more than 10 hours of detailed instruction. It also includes a 496-page workbook that presents comprehensive written instructions and step-by-step photos for every technique. Best of all, the vast majority of the information in this course is entirely new and not included in Hatmaker's other best-selling videos. If you already own other Hatmaker titles, the material in this course will help you further integrate your skills into a comprehensive fighting system. If you don't, this series will provide you with the scientific wrestling foundation you need and whet your appetite for Hatmaker's other takedown, submission, no-holds-barred, and street wrestling courses.

Focusing first on the basics of footwork, ring generalship and body movement to keep your opponent from landing a punch, he then teaches the fundamentals of striking, from such basic punches as shovel hooks and the true cross to "illegal" shots like elbow strikes, foot stomps and hacksaws. From there, he shows you the most effective combinations and how to string them together to maintain an unbeatable offense and put your opponent on the canvas.
In the lengthy trigger punching section, you learn how to best make use of body angling to turn your opponent's offense against him. Finally, Hatmaker teaches little-known strategies of clinching, feinting, infighting and more to ensure victory whether you're in the arena or on the street. If you're a boxer looking to hone his game, a beginning student seeking instruction in one of the oldest fighting sports known, or a practitioner of any martial art looking for a proven system of stand-up fighting for self-defense, this video production is tailor-made for you.

When you crash to the ground, limbs suddenly locked in an opponent's grip, your carefully practiced strikes and kicks may be rendered useless. Stripped of your offensive moves, your only chance is to forcefully and immediately break free.
Mark Hatmaker's years of grappling experience are in plain view here as he not only demonstrates dozens and dozens of escapes and counters to submissions, pins, and rides, but more importantly shows you how to put these moves together into combinations. Just as you chain your offensive moves, you must learn to chain your defenses to react fluidly to your opponent's onslaught, and in Great Escapes you will learn escapes as sequences; you will learn how your opponent is going to flow so you can think three or four defensive movements ahead.
But what if you're not a grappler? You're not planning on a ground fight, so do you really need to know all these escapes? The reality is that grappling just happens. The shoot happens, the takedown happens, the ground will happen. If you don't plan for it now, you're in for pain later.
Whether you're a grappler looking to cover every base or a nongrappler who's realizing that his game is incomplete, this DVD set will teach you a multitude of new ways to get out of bad situations. For information purposes only. Click here for preview
After years of being asked, "Don't you guys ever kick?" renowned grappling expert Mark Hatmaker finally unleashes his vast arsenal of low kicks for MMA and self-defense in this comprehensive video.
Hatmaker will show you the formidable Thai kicks from the rear leg and switch kicks that are well known to most fighters, but if you think they represent the full array of possible kicks, you're about to get an education.

To burn it all in, he gives you kicking chain drills, kicking conditioning drills, and leg conditioning drills that rely on sparring contact, not kicking trees because "the Thais don't do it, and neither should you."
