As you know I dospeak my mind but I am happy toreport that this product does exactlywhat it says it does!</p><p>I started taking the product and afteronly 4 weeks of taking it, my musclesfelt less tense and my joints more sup-ple, no more waking up and feelingtwice your age. </p><p>So, what is in Pro Tect that protectsand strengthens your joints? Its a for-mulated blend of collagen and glu-cosamine both well known for their tis-sue healing properties. One dose ofPro Tect is all it takes to strengthenconnective tissues in joints and reducethe potential for injury. The active con-</p><p>stituents of Pro Tect are: collagenhydrolysate (a protein that acts as abuilding block for the regeneration andsynthesis of articular cartilage) and glu-cosamine sulphate (an amino sugarnecessary for the construction andmaintenance of connective tissue).</p><p>Pro Tect is not just for Athletes if yousuffer from bad joints and want a prod-uct that can lessen the effects of jointwear and tear, this is for you. </p><p>Kerry Kayes, former champion body-builder and founder of CNP explainsthe reasons for developing Pro Tect Anathlete can look upon Pro Tect as aform of insurance policy and take it reg-ularly to build joint strength and extendcompetitive life.</p><p>The next question I hear you ask isDoes it taste nice? and unlike mostsupplements Pro Tect comes in a greatSummer Fruits flavour which is verysweet and I was craving the taste of itby the end of my months supply. It isso easy to take, just add one scoop ofthe powder to water and you have agreat summer fruit flavoured drink withthe added bonus of joint care.

In Fig 1 Neilbegins his attack on an opponentwho is in the turtle position. His firstobjective as always is to get his firsthook (foot) into position: the correctlocation for the hook is just inside theopponents thigh.</p><p>He then sinks his second hook in.Notice how Neil always maintains anupright, well balanced posture untilthis has been achieved. Importantlyhe does not venture much furtherforward than the opponents belt lineat any time until both hooks are in(Fig 2).</p><p>Now that his hooks are both in placeit is safe for Neil to begin to manoeu-vre his opponent. Ordinarily, whenrolling an opponent Neil would takecontrol with his hands as well, but forthe purposes of demonstrating thistechnique Neil has let go. This isbecause he wants to emphasise howthe legs are used in turning youropponent, and in Fig 3 -5 you can seehow Neil uses his left foot to force theopponent to roll over.</p><p>It is interesting to note that by Fig 5Neil has already underhooked thearm in preparation for the armlock.This illustrates how attacks must beembedded within transitional move-</p><p>ments and not simply applied as sep-arate techniques.</p><p>When his opponent reaches the seatedposition Neil is already positioneddirectly behind him ready to attack(Fig 6). He then begins to push hisopponents head away with his righthand, whilst maintaining the underhook on his opponents arm with hisleft hand. His hips are starting to pivotoutwards to create space (Fig 8). Neilnow swings his leg over his oppo-nents head. At this point many peo-ple lose the arm lock as the opponentcontinues to roll away. Neil preventsthis by continuing to push the oppo-nents head away and most important-ly by pivoting his hips slightly (Fig 9).This changes the angle of the attack,and creates a space into which hisopponent can fall as can be seen inFig 10. </p><p>This attack works so well becausemost opponents expect a choke attackonce you get behind them (Fig 11).Indeed there is no reason why youdont initially look for the choke anduse the armlock as a secondary attack.In Fig 12 Neil is trying to choke hisopponent who is putting up seriousresistance. Neil underhooks the armin preparation to switch to the armlock. Neil then shifts his hips andthrows his leg over his opponentshead. As before he makes this easier</p><p>by pushing the opponents head away(Fig 13). Although his opponentattempts to defend by grabbing hisown arm or gi (Fig 14) Neil has theposition under control. He brieflyallows the opponents head to rise(Fig 15) before pushing it back downto the ground with his leg muscleswhilst maintaining pressure on thearm - this causes the opponent torelease the arm (Fig 16).</p><p>Page 8 WWW.FIGHTERSMAG.CO.UK December 2010</p><p>TThhee NNeeiill AAddaa...</p></li></ul>
