Realistic Self DefenceBy a customer from Worthing, England , 13 Oct 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]I have been practising martial arts for over 20 years and have read and watched many books and videos, Survive the Street is well worth watching and even more importantly learning from, it does not promote flash kicks or complex moves, but instead focuses on the simple techniques that anyone can learn and are more likely to be used in a confrontational situation. Good for beginners and experienced martial artists. Above all it promotes the ultimate form of self defence 'not being there' and that is a lesson everyone should learn. Its just a shame Andy Hopwood does not teach in Sussex, if he did I would attend one of his seminars.

STAY DOWN!By a customer from Kent , 06 Apr 2011Absolutely loved this. Would the moves work in real life? Maybe - with lots of practice -because when instinct takes over your best intentions go out the window. Really worth watching anyway for the great mock-up situations. You'll be shouting 'Stay Down' for weeks!
Good For What It Says it is...By SurfingPenguin (4 reviews) from Newquay , 02 Sep 2010I Would Asume The People in the film are bouncers or door workers at some point as the moves showen are very fast to rember.
The main thing that i like about this dvd is its not one that you will watch and then feel invincible. it says (constentley) that the best defence is avoidance.
the final advantage with this dvd is it shows slow motion with pads what to do and then in a person to person situation and finaly a cinematic situation which shows you the full speed and motion...
all in all its good
AvoidBy a customer from Leeds , 11 May 2009The guy who presents this keeps saying that you can't predict anyone's behaviour on the street and then goes on to explain 20 or so techniques that would only work in a 'predictable' attack.
The people on it seem to be part of the British Freefighting association but there's no freefighting skills to be learnt here. No groundwork, no striking moves, no hinting that you need more than an ounce of discipline and fitness. Honestly if I made a DVD titled 'how to build a house' and then had 28 minutes of me looking through the baratts catalogue you'd have some idea of how useless this really was.
If anything this made me want to go and attack the people that were demonstrating the defence moves, just to show them that no amount of slow motion pad work or branded sports clothing would help them. POW!

Like extras on a Little Britain DVD.By Thrillhammer (37 reviews) from London , 07 Apr 2009
[Highly rated reviewer]Hysterical and entertaining DVD which was hilarious and informative in equal measures. It actually contains some very sensible and effective ways of defending oneself in a variety of dangerous situations. The participants all look like extras in a Little Britain sketch, think of the only gay in the village at his local pub. The geezer in skin tight jeans and huge beer gut is wonderful, I cried and hurt my ribs from laughter. Well worth watching.
