DFA Fighting Systems
DFA Fighting Systems is a Deadly and Devastating art used for Combat and Street situations. DFA is a blend of the arts from Southeast Asia, primarily drawing from KunTao, Silat and Filipino Kali.
Empty hand, Ground fighting and a variety of Weapons (stick, knife, karambit, machete, tomahawk) are all a part of this system.
The EDC (every day carry) knife has been extremely popular for centuries, and there is a wide variety of books, videos and information available.
But it is difficult to find a comprehensive book on knife training and defensive moves outside of military manuals and a few martial arts books. Most simply show you techniques, but never go into drills or concepts. Techniques are fine, but you need to be able to adapt to an ever changing situation. No two attackers or situations are ever the same, everyone reacts differently in a hostile environment and you need to be prepared.
Knife assaults can be extremely dangerous and it is best to avoid them if you can, but sometimes that is not possible. Carrying a firearm can help to equalize the situation, but it is not a panacea to the problem. If you cannot get to the weapon then it does you no good and at close range a knife usually has the edge (no pun intended).
With 208 pages and over 700 photos showing drills and combat techniques this book is a must have for any martial arts library.
Note: There are also links throughout the book that allow you to watch free videos of the actual techniques being performed.
Secrets of the Karambit!
The karambit has become extremely popular in recent years, spread by practitioners of Southeast Asian martial arts such as Silat, KunTao and the Filipino arts of Kali and Escrima, but there is very little information on the subject outside of these arts.
More and more martial arts styles as well as law enforcement (LEO) and the military are looking into the usefulness of this ancient Indonesian weapon, but with a dearth of teaching material and/or instructors out there, they are left to learn on their own or try to find a qualified instructor of Southeast Asian arts to teach them the finer points of this unique weapon.
With 237 pgs and over 740 photos, it is my hope that this book will help everyone interested in learning the karambit to gain a better understanding of this fascinating utility tool and fighting implement.
