Secrets of the Octagon
The UFC's original instructional videos:
I bought the complete set for $30 online. Just watched first tape. Hilarious. Will upload. Here's preview:
- Ken Shamrock demonstrates a counter to the Royce Gracie front kick.
- Oleg Taktarov and fucking Andy Anderson teaches us how to box.
- Dan Severn teaches us how to palm strike and headbutt from insde the guard. I think what he's showing will set up an armbar for the opponent.
- Keith Hackney shows us an upwards backfist strike and Adam's apple crush.
Funny to note is that the gym they use is the Vee-Arnis jiu-jisu school of New York. David James acts as Ken Shamrock's dummy.
I can not stop repping you.
did the set come with the hat, shirt and poster?
Cool! Can you upload any of it? Does anyone still own the rights to that trainwreck?
If YouTube gets pissy, upload it here for posterity.
That was my plan from the beginning. My old Youtube account got banned because of a Zuffa copyright claim. The funny thing is, the UFC videos I posted were never even released outside of an old and rare VHS tape.

I'm not the most computer literate person in the world, but I think I'll be able to get it up here. I don't see any point in writing a review of it, either, because each tape is only bout 30 minutes long (At $59.95 a pop). Those four tidbits I posted basically constitutes all of the material featured in tape one.
