Greetings All, Just thought I'd bring everybody up to date on the instruction course I've been working on. I got such a great response to the Seven Vital Truths of Edge Weapons videos I put out. With so many people asking if I had anything more substantial that they could get their hands on, I decided to put the "nuts and bolts" of my system on a double DVD set, (well it turned out to be a double DVD set) which I called the "Essential Ray Floro". Initially this was scheduled to be released in early 2008, but because a number of people have been hassling me, I eventually convinced the manufacturer to run off a small number of advance copies that we are going to make available before Christmas. I haven't got an exact date for delivery as yet, but I am hoping it will be a week or so from now. I'll keep you posted on the date I can get some of the finished product as soon as someone tells me. Alternatively. Feel free to email me on rfloro@loadednet.com.au Regards, Ray Floro www.florofighting.com Reply With Quote

Hi, A lot of people have asked me questions about the content and length of the DVDs, here is a brief rundown. I specifically designed the content of the course so that it would be usable for a wide range of people from various martial art backgrounds and even for those with no martial arts background. I wanted to give people a complete insight and understanding of edged weapons; so they know how they can be used, how they can be used against you and of course the hot topic in society these days, how to defend yourself against knife assault empty handed. The other important thing that I really wanted to show in these DVDs, is how you can effectively train with edged weapons so that not only does it improve your combat skills in general, but also make it crystal clear the adjustments that need to be made to ones defence skills when an edged weapon is introduced into a combative situation. The other aspect I wanted to show is that you can have a lot of fun, as well as some excellent safe edged weapon training, using these concepts to do some sparring with your training partner or group! I also put together a bit of a brief description of what the course content contains: Disk One. LESSON ONE Takes you though the basic foundation of FFS. This lesson enables you to take one form of attack and a handful of defensive moves to create an easily learnt system. Gives you ideas to maximise range without moving your feet. The methods found throughout this DVD is applicable to all manner of improvised, impact and edged weapons. Teaches you how to develop the F.F.S. non-telegraphic strike. LESSON TWO Builds on Lesson One and introduces variations to allow even greater options in simple attack and defence. It also covers longer range non-telegraphic striking methods and strategies. Disk Two. LESSON THREE Deals with the crucial area of close quarter fighting. Teaches you to effectively deal with an opponent who is aggressively charging and pressing his attack. This important segment also provides lessons in defending yourself unarmed against an armed attack. The moves presented here are simple, yet applicable to all manner of scenarios. LESSON FOUR Covers the essence of FFS strategy. Learning to set up an opponent. How to create openings through deception and drawing you assailant. In effect, you are in control. It further expands to showing how to use longer weapons of opportunity like magazines, walking canes and umbrellas etc. LESSON FIVE Shows you specialized moves to use against a more skilled opponent. It also teaches the FFS method to bridge the distance between you and your opponent at distances considered extreme long range. ================================================== =============================== I got my calculator out and the total running time of the DVDs is 2 ½ hours. The other news is that I have been told by the manufacturer that the DVDs will be finished on the 12 or 13 of November (that is when I will have them). I would like to thank all of you who registered for the pre-notification list. We got a lot more responses than we expected and the window of opportunity to buy the DVD sets that haven't been reserved will be a small one when it goes on sale next week, with the bulk of the advance copies accounted for! You can still get on the pre-notification list here if you are interested: order@florofighting.com Thanks everyone for your support. Sincerely, Ray Floro. http://www.florofighting.com

Any news on the "full" release? I checked Mr. Floro's site, and apparently the initial run is all sold out :-(
