Présentation de l'éditeur

When you’re about to fight a thug on the street and you have to look up to stare into his eyes, you’re bound to feel up pang of fear. But follow the solid strategies and self-defense techniques presented by self-defense maverick and innovator Sammy Franco, and the fight will end with your attacker looking up at you in confusion as he crashes to the ground.

Sammy Franco was concerned that no book on the market successfully tackled the specific problem of fighting a larger, stronger opponent. In The Bigger They Are, The Harder They Fall, he addresses that all-important issue and delivers the solid information you’ll need to win a street fight when the odds seem stacked against you.

The Bigger They Are, The Harder They Fall will teach you:

  • How to avoid panic and intimidation
  • The do’s and don’ts of fighting a massive fighter
  • The five best knock-out targets
  • What works, what doesn’t, and why
  • How to avoid the ground fight
  • Workout routines
  • Equipment training
  • Step-by-step fighting combinations
  • And much, much more.
  • In this one-of-a-kind skill building workbook, Sammy Franco calls upon his 30+ years of experience as a reality-based self-defense expert to prepare you both mentally and physically for the fight of your life. Unless you’re a lineman for the NFL, there may come a day when you will face an opponent who can dominate you through sheer mass and power. Read and study this book before that day comes.

    Not for advanced martial-artists 13 décembre 2003
    Par Sunny Days - Publié sur Amazon.com
    Format: Broché
    This book can be very usefull for beginners or anyone who has no idea about self defence. Though interesting, it presents no new techniques that any martial artist has already seen. This is why i gave it a 2 star rating and felt it was a waste of money for me. However I have 4 reasons for my low rating and they are presented as follows:
    1) All techniques shown are basic and could be used on anyone regardless of their size. Gearing it to large opponents is a way to sell the book.
    2) Some techniques he showed will not work on significanly larger opponents. For example, on the back cover of the book Franco shows himself escaping a full headlock given by a VERY large man. In the picture the author effortlessly stands straight up and punches the large adversary in the throat. (Yeah right). I have been doing Brazilian jiu-jitsu and Mauy-thai for a long time and let me tell you, it does not happen that way.
    3) Regarding ground fighting, his advise is approprate: don't get smothered on the bottom by a huge man, ever. But thats all he says. He shows himslef in the gurad position and in a mounted position but doesnt offer appropriate ground fighing techniques.
    4) What i found most irritating was that he points out the most basic consepts from arts such as boxing, kung fu and jiu-jitsu and simply applies it to beating "larger" opponents.
    Given these factors, if you are someone who does not train in martial arts or don't plan to do so in the future, this book may help you see why self defence may be useful and illustrate the fighting techniques that exit.

    Common sense info 16 juin 2014
    Par J. Houston Jr. - Publié sur Amazon.com
    Format: Broché Achat vérifié
    I'm a former paratrooper, a boxer, have earned a 2nd degree black belt & have trained all my life (I'm in my late 40s). I'm also 5'5 and 145 lbs, so when I saw the title of this book I was immediately interested. I have to agree with another reviewer who thought that most of the stuff in this book was basic. GOOD! Keep the KISS (keep it simple, stupid) principle in mind always. That's the stuff that works more often than not. For the smaller person who's never fought a larger opponent, the info that starts on p. 12 should be read, meditated on, and then read again. You can win against a bigger guy (I have), but not if you fight him as if he's your size! The mental attitude that Sammy lays out on these pages is, in my opinion, more important than the actual fighting techniques he shows you. I liked that most of the book is in the form a Q&A, which seems strange at times but does help the reader find specific information quickly.

    A good basic guide to techniques and tactics to defeat a bigger attacker. 2 août 2009
    Par Joseph J. Truncale - Publié sur Amazon.com
    Format: Broché
    The focus of this book is on how to defeat an attacker who may be bigger and stronger than you. However, since there is almost always someone who is bigger and stronger than you, this book is for anyone who wants an edge in a street confrontation. This volume is divided into five chapters, covering several factors that must be considered if you want to survive a physical confrontation. One of the things I liked about this book is the question and answer format. This method is one way to get the most out of this book. Chapter one covers some of the fundamental concerns about attempting to defeat an attacker who is larger and stronger than you. The second chapter addresses the vital strategic principles required to defeat an attacker. Chapter three deals with training methods required to defeat an attacker. Chaper four provides methods to put the principles into action. The final chapter briefly covers ground fighting aspects.

    In conclusion, this is a book that can be of benefit to both experienced and beginning martial artists who are interested in learning some practical and simple self-defense tactics.

    Rating: 4 stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Pro-Systems Combatives Vol. 1,2).

    Good book, but they still are standing up ... 10 septembre 2001
    Par Raffaello Palandri - Publié sur Amazon.com
    Format: Broché
    Yep ... they still are there, bigger, stronger, and standing up. Of course Sammy Franco knows how and where to hit those big guys, but in a real fight a 70 Kg man (as I am), can hardly avoid breaking his hand hitting the chin with bare hands punches against a 130 Kg opponent.
    Of course timing, the hints, the techniques and tactics are good, but, believe me, in a mayhem, you'll NEVER hit a bone with a bone ... hey man, these are the only hands I have !!
    This apart, I suggest you to use this book, read it carefully, it's really good, but hit with your palm heel on those chins ...

    Summer's Here & the Time is Right for Fighting in the Street 8 janvier 2003
    Par Charles Henry Higgensworth III - Publié sur Amazon.com
    Format: Broché
    Only a fool would attack a muscle-bound, 6' 10", college lineman out on an evening stroll with a snarling pack of pet Dobermans. A balding, sedentary 50-something walking a fluffy white Bichon Frise is a different matter. Our dog's diminutive bladder requires regular outings at the strangest of hours, and I recently acquired Mr. Franco's fascinating book as a precautionary matter. Herein America's own Generalissimo advocates a holistic approach to street combat - starting with a rigorous training & conditioning program. I tried to follow his regime for about a week, but the thought that I was preparing for a dark alley showdown made exerciseg more depressing than usual and I moved on to the later chapters. I found the section on collar grabs & throws to be particularly intoxicating, and even practiced one of the moves on a friendly mailman who sometimes stops in to avoid the rigors of his route on inclement days (rain, snow, sleet, and hail all being equally likely to drive him to our kitchen). I succeeded in felling him just as the book instructed, and even slightly re-injured an aggravated disk in his spine (for which he effusively praised and thanked me, due to the Postal Service's lavish Workers' Comp program). I now walk my "hood" at all hours with a visible swagger, faithful young Cujo yipping menacingly at my side.
