Everyone on the staff agrees that the man who scares us most is Ryan Murdock. He has more real life experience putting combat skills to the survival test in the most adverse nooks and cranies of the world than 10 people combined. Pressure testing one's preparation in the conditions that Ryan has produces diamonds. With the acclaim of RMAX Bujinkan 1, he has finally been demanded to release its sequel. And let me tell you folks, it just keeps getting better!!
Elite athletes are constantly searching for an edge. Sports performance institutes spend millions of dollars every year to push the envelope in search of that edge. Martial art is no different. However, despite the fact that martial art is inherently athletic, traditional martial artists are too often reluctant to look beyond their school to gain that same edge.
RMAX Powered Bujinkan defies rigid traditionalism by applying cutting-edge sports science to one of the most successful combat systems worldwide. Using the CST Training Hierarchy Pyramid™ as its model, it fills in missing links such as full-contact sparring and conditioning, and it presents drills that take the hallmarks of mastery in that system and reverse engineer them to provide the clearest possible path.
Volume One : GPP
Volume One presents a complete system of combat specific conditioning . Specific range of motion drills and detailed exercise breakdown are followed by two progressively sophisticating circuit workouts that can be done in 20 minutes to tax your physical and mental limits. Once mastered, the user can tweak the circuits to address a range of performance goals: from strength, endurance and speed to rapid recovery between bursts.
Volume Two : SPP
Highly challenging strength exercises, partner drills and original Prasara Body-Flow™ and Clubbell®® combination routines target the sports specific needs of martial art practitioners. Clear connections are drawn between the exercises and the aspects of enhanced performance.
Volume Three : ASP/MEP
The specific Attributes gained in the first two series are taken to the mats in a blizzard of performance enhancement drills – mastery reverse- engineered. From single to multiple attacker drills, from static to fluid to gloved-up and full on, this final volume in the series explicitly lays out what was once the secret of traditional martial art masters – the progression of form to formlessness – and stomps on the accelerator.
Volume 2: Specific Physical Preparedness
Running Time: approximately 90 minutes
