I thought it would be good to create a list of recommended resources! This one’s for videos and all other things to watch.
Consterdine, Peter and Thompson, Geoff. Pavement Arena (Series).
I don’t really know what to say about this one in terms of details! These videos are a great resource, especially for those who want to take their traditional martial arts training and make it more effective for real combat. They cover a fairly broad range of areas, from striking to grappling, and I definitely recommend them. Available for download (cheaper than ordering on DVD) from http://www.peterconsterdine.com/dvd-downloads.htm.

Poyton, Robert. Systema Basics (Series). Cutting Edge.
This is a great series, and I won’t bother telling you anything about it! Nah, I’m kidding – here’s a review I wrote for the series as a set, which has links to YouTube videos and the purchase page for the DVDs: https://evolutionaryselfprotection.com/2011/11/30/review-systema-basics-by-cutting-edge/
