How to Choke Out, Lock Up or KO Any Attacker ...within Seconds!
(with Live Proof on Video)
After achieving Black Belt Certification at 17 in Kyokushin Karate (the strongest Karate system in the world) & becoming one of the youngest "non-Asian" Bare Knuckle Full Contact champions at only 21 in 1987 (recorded live on the "Knock Out Any Attacker" Video), I put on a white belt & earned Black Belts in Judo & Brazilian Jiu Jitsu! You will save many years of guesswork and thousands of dollars.
I actually "cracked the code" to highly accelerated learning techniques!
With the very information revealed in these videos, I was throwing & tapping BLACK BELTS with decades of experience in the Black Belt division of many tournaments. (see live matches on the "Advanced Grappling & Groundfighting" Video)

"Dominating, flowing and striking from top positions" is exactly what this video teaches, in the usual thorough and methodical manner we have become used to from Marco Lala.
Mr. Lala provides voiced - over commentary as he demonstrates the moves and as usual helps the teaching process tremendously. In terms of what is covered in this tape, a fairly complete list would look as follows :
1.The scarf hold
2. Irregular scarf hold
3. Side hold
4. Side hold transition to irregular scarf hold
5. Strikes from sidehold
6. Reverse scarf hold
7. Reverse scarf hold to mounted position
8. Scarf hold to reverse scarf hold to mounted position
9. One arm hold/choke
10. Side hold- dynamics of preventing opponents movement
11. Use of gi in side hold, both yours and/or the opponents
12. More strikes from the side position
13. Top hold position
14. Broken top hold position, opponent's head sticking out to one side.

Whilst this list gives a good enough idea of what positions are covered in this video, it does nothing to show the depth and thoroughness with which this is done. All the basics are covered, in the case of the scarf hold, for instance, such details as keeping his head up, keeping your weight on the near side of his body, securing his arm under your armpit, not putting your weight onto him directly where he could move it, keeping his back flat on the ground, use of the legs to strenghten one's position etc. Many important points are made, such as that when you strike, you loose the use of the striking limb as a controlling bracket and hence open the gate a little for him to escape (and vice versa). As Mr. Lala says, that's the nature of the game. Another point is that the ability to create that ongoing feeling of having a two ton truck on one's chest is the result of being able to flow with an escape attempt. Mr. Lala compares this with making oneself feel like a very wet blanket or a half-filled waterbed. A picture like that can be worth the proverbial thousand words.
In teaching the side hold position, Mr. Lala shows that there are four basic ways for the opponent to escape: sitting up, bridging, side escape inward, side escape outward. He divides the torso into four quadrants and shows how correct movement relative to these quadrants can prevent the person on the bottom from escaping. A very simple, yet effective conceptual model. Mr. Lala then shows how the four leg positions (both legs out, both legs in ie kneeing, one in, one out on either side) are used to strengthen the top position depending on the movement of the person underneath. The legs functioning as an anchor, so to speak. Studying the material on this tape cannot help but make one a better grappler.

I started my martial arts training in 1994. Once I started I was hooked for life. I would buy every TKD and martial arts magazine I could find in the bookstores. I was always interested in the ads I would see for different products or videos (this was before dvd’s:). I can’t tell you how much money I spent on different videos, books, and stretching machines, but I can tell you that most of them were not worth what I paid for them. I remember very clearly ordering and receiving my first video from Marco Lala, “Beyond Splits, Volume 1”. I can’t remember what I paid but I do remember thinking I got more than my money’s worth. It wasn’t long before I owned every vhs tape he had produced. What I loved and still love about the videos is that I find them incredibly inspirational. When I see Marco going through the drills or exercises in a school yard, his backyard, basement, or old dojo I get excited and ready to train. I opened my own TKD academy in 1999 and purchased all the Iron Warrior instructional as DVD’s. Over the years I no longer watch anything on DVD eventually got rid of all those videos. I am so thrilled that they are being re-released on a downloadable format. These videos are just as educational, relevant, and inspirational to me today as they were over 20 years ago. I think they are an invaluable addition to anyone’s library regardless of the art you practice. If you are a karate or TKD practitioner these videos will give you endless ideas for training, teaching classes, and can add a whole new dimension of ground fighting to your arsenal. I find my energy to train and teach gets a boost every time I watch a few minutes of the videos. I am very grateful these are available to us all again! OSU!!

...I finally found my long lost Phenomenal Endurance Training book last week, I've began following some of the training instructions in it again, almost 30 years after you wrote it it's STILL top notch information.
By following your tape and a sound diet, I've reduced my body fat percentage to 5.1% without sacrificing any physical strength. As an instructor for U.S. Army Green Beret's, I've introduced many of your training secrets to my students. The overall results have been tremendous!
