Kuntao Jiu-Jitsu: Your Guide to Realistic Self-Defense and Street Survival is written by Marc Bochner, a fifth degree black belt in Kuntao Jiu-Jitsu. This book details the new hybrid system, explaining the important incorporated elements from each martial art into Kuntao Jiu-Jitsu; this includes Kuntao, Jiu-Jitsu, Aikido, Arnis/Kali/Escrima, Judo, Kung Fu, and Muay Thai, as well as nerve priming and scenario training. Kuntao Jiu-Jitsu is a reality-based martial arts system that is designed with one main objective: To teach you how to survive a life-threatening altercation. This extensive book is a worthwhile read whether you are looking for intense martial art training or simply looking to gain knowledge about quick, effective and realistic means of defending yourself and your loved ones. Learn how to strike, throw, and control an attacker; how to use joint manipulations, survive a ground attack, verbally defuse a potential volatile situation, proper knife and gun defenses; and how to effectively condition your body for street survival. After reading this book, you will be able to confront fears and gain confidence in yourself!

Summary: great martial arts book
Comment: I recomend this book to any one who is interested in learning to defend themselves or any martial artist looking to expand their arsenol of attacks. I am currently a Nidan(second degree black belt) and the techniques described in this book are very similar to the techniques taught in my system so I know from experience that they work. The techniques in this book are very simple to comprehend therefore I give this book a five star rating.

Summary: Only For Those Who Know No Better!!! Bad!!!
Comment: If you are a newbie to the martial arts, or some rank-struck kid with dreams of being a master, than maybe this would be considered a good book. However, if you already have a library of MA books, or have already spent years in the arts, you will be wise to avoid the frustration of buying this one.
"Soke-dai" (another one of those new terms that never appeared in traditional usage) supposedly took from 8 different arts to create this new style. Yet, admittedly, he never directly studied all of 8 of these arts from instructors. So, how can he blend or teach what he never actually studied?
Each of the individual arts that this man mentions allows for the full spectrum of skills that he claims to have taken from all of them. Therefore, through his claims, he reveals that he knows little more than the basics of even the one style he has learned.
It was a nice try at scientific rationalization, but those of us know who know better (after years of training/ fighting) have found this to be a great disappointment.

Summary: Great all around
Comment: Although I have studied martial arts since being a child, I have never seen a style so practical as this. Many other styles I have studied under have focused on practicing meaningless forms and competing in tournaments that have no application to the real world. This book's focus is on surviving a fight on the street. Although it has copious techniques included, it also gives strategies for defusing a dangerous situation. All and all, it will help the novice learn basic self defense and the advanced martial artist in seeing martial arts in a new way. Great job!

Summary: A student of Vee
Comment: I gave this book 4 Stars only because some basic Vee Jitsu concepts should have been included in this book!

Soke Bochner-my hat is off to you my friend!

This book is a great book to read for those who seek an eclectic view of Martial Arts and mixing systems to make something that is effective. The book pays homage to Grandmaster Florendo Visitacion better known as Prof. Vee-this man was one of America's Pioneer Leaders in the Martial Arts community. Prof. Vee truly developed a System of Systems. (Visitacion Arts) He was beyond his time by many years. It is refreshing to see his life's work presented thru the eyes of Soke Bochner. The book Kunato Jiu-Jitsu reflects just that and not taking away from Soke Bochner's hard work-training and writing this book.
This book gives you a taste of what taking bits from here and there do when combined into a street lethal and effective system of self-defense. Buy it, review it and put your mind to the test. Train hard, be safe and always act smart. OSU!!
