Jake Shannon – The Fighting Library

Learn the Facts About REAL FIGHTING From The Men Who Were There!

Dear friend, Forget everything else you think you might know about martial arts and pay very close attention to the words you are about to read. If you’ve spent any amount of time in martial arts then you know it is a game of “physical chess”.

Just as important as strength and conditioning (and some say even more important) is knowledge. The difference between winning and losing often comes down to which player sees opportunities that his opponent doesn’t. These days mixed martial arts and submission grappling are immensely popular. It seems like their is a new gym in every other strip mall these days. The sad fact is that the majority of these places are teaching the same material. This presents an opportunity for the competitor that thinks outside the box!

WARNING: Some of these techniques may now be illegal and considered “unsportsman-like”…

Jake Shannon has compiled out-of-print classics from his private Western Martial Arts library, along with other original items he has uncovered, PLUS several exclusive interviews; ALL THE HARD, MONOTONOUS LEG-WORK HAS BEEN DONE FOR YOU.

Realize that the money paid for the original RARE content in all of these volumes literally amounts to a small fortune. Now that everything is said and done, what was in the hands of only an elite, privileged few (thousands upon thousands of pages of exceptional and NEARLY forgotten information) have been preserved and made available to you!
