Our Overall Rating: 4.4/5

Created by Todd Lamb, an ex-SWAT team leader, and Ari Knazan, a martial arts teacher and personal protection expert, the “First Strike” is a step-by-step system that will help you unleash your basic self-defense instincts and teach you 17 deadly moves for protecting yourself and your family from attackers.

Todd Lamb claims that you can neutralize any attacker, even if you’re not the athletic type or don’t have formal training in martial arts. That’s because it’s already hardwired into your genes. The only problem is society has supposedly forced you (and other people) to back off and be submissive when faced with violence.

Todd explains that martial arts moves don’t usually help you. It may even get you killed, according to him. The best types of self-defense moves should be instinctive or based on human reflexes that can help end an encounter effectively and fast.

Mr. Lamb says that this is exactly why he wants to teach people practical self-defense techniques, which they can easily learn and use when attacked. The result is the First Strike system, which combines the important elements of the best martial arts moves and Todd’s and Ari’s expert knowledge on self-defense.

More specifically, here’s what you can expect to learn in the First Strike program:

  • 3 easy techniques for finishing a fight quickly.
  • The ultimate strike you could use to end a fight before it begins.
  • A mind trick, which you already know but just don’t know the perfect time to use it, that you could use to mess with your attacker’s thoughts.
  • 7 of the best Special Forces techniques that could cause your attacker’s combat inefficient within seconds.
  • The only strategy you should do when you encounter a crazed individual, who intends on committing mass shooting.
  • Easy attack techniques that could neutralize an armed attacker.
  • How to turn your attacker’s intentions against him.
  • An unconventional technique of delivering strikes to leave your attacker confused, and a lot more…

Todd Lamb is also offering the following bonus items to every customer who will purchase his First Strike program:

1. The “Command Presence” Manual

As the title hints, this will teach you simple tricks for developing a commanding presence. Todd said this is enough to prevent bad guys from making you their latest victim because you’re not an easy target.

2. The “Advanced Situational Awareness” Manual

This will show you how to read the situation around you, so you can avoid confrontation with someone who has bad intentions.

3. The Alpha Nation Online Coaching (30 Days Trial)

Todd will give you free access to this exclusive community of motivated men to give you a head start on mastering the First Strike techniques. Plus, you’ll access a wide selection of videos and articles, which cover a wide range of topics, from surviving an urban disaster to staying in great physical shape.

4. The “Ghost Protocol: The Art of Being Invisible” Manual

We guess the title of the manual says it all. It will teach you skills for staying under the radar of your enemy. You’ll know what you should do if, for instance, there’s a suspicious person inside the building of your workplace…

The Main Pros And Cons Of The First Strike System

The Things We Liked


It’s Easy To Learn

You don’t need special abilities, a ripped body, or have expert knowledge on martial arts to master this self-defense system. It’s easy to learn by anyone, and the series of 3-minute video lessons make learning easier and faster when compared to similar programs online.

It’s Affordable

According to, martial arts classes cost an average of $103 monthly for studio members, $75-$149 monthly for private studio classes, and $45-$99 monthly for community center and gym classes.

Compared to taking multiple lessons on martial arts, which could take months to years to master, the First Strike system is definitely more affordable and a more practical choice.

It Gives You Peace Of Mind

The world is not completely safe. We all know that. That’s why it’s only reasonable that we learn how to defend our loved ones and ourselves for peace of mind. And we believe the First Strike system is a great place to start.

Both Men And Women Can Use It

The First Strike program is suitable for men and women, the young and the old. If you have children, you may want to teach these techniques to them, so they can protect themselves from potential attackers, like school bullies.

Todd Backs It Up With A Full Refund Guarantee

You have sixty days to go through the entire system and apply the techniques. If you’re not satisfied with it for whatever personal reason, you can email Todd Lamb or his email customer service team to recover every penny you spent.


Potential Drawbacks


It’s Not For Everyone

It might not be easy for this self-defense system to change people who hate violence, confrontations, and are afraid of physical fights. People who are already great at instinctual self-defense might not find this useful as well.

Authenticity Of Client Testimonials

We’re not saying they’re not real. We just want to be sure the positive reviews on the sales page really came from real clients. It would be nice if Todd and Ari would put video testimonials or put pictures of their clients to add credibility.

It’s A Digital Product

The First Strike system consists of videos, eBooks, and an online coaching. This is usually not a major problem, unless you don’t have access to a reliable internet connection…

Conclusions And Final Thoughts

First Strike review

Overall, we believe the First Strike system is worth checking out. It has many positive aspects that make it a great option, especially for self-defense newbies.

One, we like that each video lesson takes only 3 minutes. This is good news for people who are busy or can’t stand watching hour-long training videos.

Second, it’s practical. You don’t have to wait for months or years to learn how to defend yourself from attackers. The techniques are based on human reflexes, so you can execute each technique almost instantly, without overthinking.

Third, you can learn these techniques with your partner and/or children. This will not only teach you self-defense, but it’s also a great way for you to spend time with each other.

Of course, there are also downsides to the First Strike system, and as we explained above, this program is not for everyone.

In general, if you don’t like digital products, if you have a poor internet connection, or if you simply prefer using weapons (e.g. guns) to defend yourself or your loved ones, then the First Strike system might not be for you.

On the other hand, if you don’t want to spend lots of money on martial arts classes, or if you want to learn practical and effective self-defense techniques in just a few weeks, then Todd Lamb’s First Strike program is a great option for you.

Best of all, with Todd’s 60-day money back guarantee, there is really nothing to lose here…

Well, that’s everything we can say about the First Strike system. We hope you find this review useful and we wish you all the best!
