Is this the ultimate street fighting system? Not really, although there are some good techniques on this DVD. It shows some good submissions, that I don’t know if I would use on the street. I will say that Bas Rutten is the most charismatic video instructor out there, with maybe the exception of David James and Kelly McCann. They should give Bas his own TV show. He is so entertaining that if he was teaching cooking techniques I would probably buy it. The knife techniques are a little suspect, but I’m sure that Bas could pull it off, if not me. The bottom line, this tape is not a necessity, but if you like Bas then it is good viewing fun.
