Craig Sira has always been interested in the martial arts. He began formal training in the martial arts in 1984 with some boxing prior to that time. He has earned instructor status in Karate (1986), Modern Arnis (by Prof Presas 1991), Certifying Instructor Practitioner Level 1 in Kyusho Jitsu (by Evan Pantanzi and Jim Corn 2009) and Certified Instructor Level 1 and 2 in FAST Defense Adrenaline Scenarios (by Bill Kipp 2011). He is a founder of Combative Martial Arts and has authored five books and four DVDs on the martial arts (http://combativemartialartsassociation.webs.com/store.htm). Always the student, Craig continues to train and study other martial art systems. He is an active member of FAST Defense and continues to study Kyusho Jitsu under Jim Corn (Jim Corn Kyusho Jitsu).

Craig instructs a martial art class called Combative Martial Arts (CMA). Combative Martial Arts is a modern martial art system developed by Craig Sira and his top students based on the ancient martial arts. It integrates the best ideas and techniques from many systems. Historically martial art experts were capable of defending themselves and others, had the courage to stand up for what is right and were respected for their insight and wisdom. CMA builds on these fine traditions. The class curriculum is flexible and customized to the student. In the fall of 2010, Craig and Laura opened The Academy Martial Arts and Fitness. The Academy is dedicated to world class martial art programs.

If you want to be able to knockout someone, this DVD is for you. In the DVD 'Finish It with a Knockout' Craig Sira, self protection expert and founder of Combative Martial Arts, instructs five simple targets that have a high percentage to knock out an attacker. Each target area is explained along with how to activate it. Then actual knockouts to each target area is demonstrated so you can see exactly how to do it yourself.

You do not need to learn complex set ups, acupuncture points or theories to be able to use these targets. You do not need to know why it works. It does not take years of training. Some of Craig's students in the DVD demonstrations accomplished a knockout with only a few months of martial art training. Craig focuses on how to accomplish the knockout. Just grab a partner and follow his instructions to get these to work for you.

Knockout targeting is dangerous so make certain you know revivals and restorations before you actually strike a training partner. The viewer assumes all risks of the use or mis-use of this information.


   
Craig Sira, self protection expert and founder of Combative Martial Arts (CMA) instructs students to accomplish knockouts in a matter of hours. In CMA, knockout training has two key elements. In the DVD 'Finish It with a Knockout Vol 1' Craig instructed targets and how to hit them that have a high reliability to KO someone. In Vol 2, Pressure Drills you will learn drills that put the student into a situation where they are forced to knockout their partner. Pressure drills are valuable since the student and instructor are provided instant feedback if they were able to knockout someone. The instructor can coach the student as the drill is being performed to ensure success. In addition, the level of pressure in the drills can be adjusted depending on the students skill level. This allows them to be challenging for everyone. Knockout targeting is dangerous so make certain you know revivals and restorations before you actually strike a training partner.

When it comes to chokes and strangles you need quality not quantity. A few good chokes that can be used in a wide variety of situation is the recipe to success. In this DVD, you will learn 4 unarmed and 4 stick chokes or strangles that you can use to finish off an attacker no matter where you are positioned. It is a great feeling that no matter where you are located a choke or strangle is always within reach.

In CMA, we generally start with strikes since they have a higher percentage of success and are better when multiple opponents or weapons are involved - which is most common on the street. However, there are some people that for whatever reason are not stopped by strikes. For these times, a good choke or strangle is great to have in your back pocket.


You are not just getting in shape but learning self defense. In this DVD, CMA Combat Fitness #1 Technique Form, you will learn effective self protection skills while increasing your fitness level. Learn and practice techniques such as palm strikes, elbows, knees and the double thumb eye gouge that have a proven track record in self protection confrontations. The workout begins with single strikes then moves to combinations, including a round of stick strikes. An important part of the workout is plyometrics which will develop your explosive power. This DVD can be practiced solo in the air or on a heavy bag.

You control the pace and intensity level of the workout in a couple of key ways. The first way is to practice at slow, medium or full power level. These levels will be covered in round 1. The second way is the plyometric exercises. You can choose to do all the plyometrics or to substitute regular exercises instead. For example, do regular squats instead of jumping squats. Then over time, increase the intensity level.

No martial art training is necessary to learn and train with this DVD. An appendix is included that will provide instruction on how to perform the major techniques covered in the workout. So put on some motivating music and join us for a true self protection workout.

Finish it with a Scorpion Finish: Grab, then Strike!

Some attackers are hard to put away. Most of the time power and knockout strikes will be enough to finish off an attacker. However, sometimes you need a bit more and that is where scorpion finishes have value. A scorpion finish is a grab that stretches or stabilizes a vital target so that the strike is more likely to finish the person off. It is very instinctive to hold someone with one hand and strike with the other.

In this DVD, Craig Sira, the founder of Combative Martial Arts, and some students will instruct how to use scorpion finishes when you are unarmed or armed with a knife of black jack. These make the knockouts easier to accomplish. You will learn how to incorporate them with your current techniques and into the drill that you practice. This will enable you to make them yours.

Quality, not quantity is critical for the street. Scorpion finishes will give you an edge when you need it to finish off the attacker. The important topic of Zanchin is covered in this DVD as well.
