Lee Morrison was born in Southeast London during the latter part of the 1960s to a single parent on a low income. Coming from a rough area and humble beginnings, he learned two things early on: that you have to stand up for yourself and that people treat you the way you let them. He began karate when he was 11 years old, training in various styles for the next seven years, but sought combat proficiency elsewhere after his karate moves failed him during a mugging by two thugs outside a London tube station. Over the years he has trained in Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Filipino weapon systems, wrestling, and Western boxing and combatives, but it was only after he started working as a club doorman that his urban combatives learning curve kicked in. He rapidly realized the need to whittle down his fighting moves to one or two good strikes that worked against all attacks.
Street fighting is serious business. At some point during a street fight, you'll likely find yourself on the ground with an opponent who's not going to stop until you're unconscious. Do you have the grappling skills needed to prevent this from happening to you? In volume two of this exclusive video series from Paladin Press, Urban Combatives instructor Lee Morrison reveals real-world tactics to shut down a threat quickly and violently . . . before it goes to the ground. Using ballistic manipulation, violence and speed, Lee teaches you gouging, ripping and biting tactics designed to stop a grappler cold. And if the fight does go to the ground, Lee demonstrates how to cover up and get back on your feet and in the fight fast. Unlike in the ring, there are no rules in a street fight, so you must do whatever it takes to overpower your opponent. Whether you are engaged in stand-up grappling or you find yourself on your back in an alley, you'll be ready with the counter-grappling tactics taught in this no-frills, survival-oriented video. For information purposes only. ""Lee Morrison is one of the nicest guys I know - until he's not. A no-s**t tough guy who's earned my respect, Lee's intimacy with violence was developed over decades in the doorways of rough clubs and pubs in the UK where being a doorman is a professional pursuit and markedly different than in the US. Not only is he physically skilled, he understands violent behavior and blends together a psychological, verbal, and physical approach that is both relevant and practical. Lee's no poseur - he's fit, tough and walks the talk. Pay attention, you won't be sorry."" –Kelly McCann
