About this item
Burton Richardson’s Silat for the Street blends the most brutally efficient silat techniques with the training methods and tactics of elite-level MMA. The reader will learn how to defend against larger, stronger, trained attackers, including those with an MMA background. Silat for the Street is a functional, practical book for: • The pencak silat practitioner who wants to learn the important details that make silat work and how to apply the art against a trained MMA fighter. • The MMA practitioner who wants to learn a system of true street self-defense that blends very well with MMA training, and how to alter their sport training to be street effective. • The traditional martial artist who wants to learn another method that is highly adaptable and is open to another perspective on highly functional street self-defense. • The beginner martial artist who wants to learn in a well-organized step-by-step presentation. • The advanced martial artist who wants to understand the minute details that make silat work and to learn how to apply the art against an MMA-trained fighter. Silat for the Street differs from other silat books by focusing on practical fighting applications instead of just displaying the “artistic” but often nonfunctional portions. Richardson is know worldwide for using his background as a scientist to rigorously test the techniques of various arts in the crucible of combat against top MMA athletes. People trust Richardson’s findings because they know he only shows what works under pressure. His ability to organize and explain detailed concepts in an easy-to-understand way makes the book accessible to individuals of all levels of expertise. It is the only book of its kind on silat.
