    Feisty. At only five hours from West Union, OH, and after your dispelling any question about quality, Lima, I have TDI on my itenerary. Thanks for sharing with your well-considered essay.

    How were the prices of the trainers? I can get the TDI, Red Zytel Handle, Plain Ka-Bar trainer for the TDI LE (that I have thanks to one of your earlier vids) for $31 on Amazon. Should I grab it (no pun intended)?

    I stumbled on the video, very nice. I will say it is kinda strange hearing that kind of language from a lady.

    If that's the best price on amazon I think that's about it. I got mine from Amazon as well and I think that's about what I paid for mine though I can't really remember. You don't NEED a trainer to go to the class, btw. They have plenty of trainers there. I only brought mine because I had it with me.

    LOL.. I think the people in the class were pretty surprised as well. Usually my Mom (who loves watching my videos) makes some kind of comment about them but she has stayed FAR away from commenting on this video..lol If she watched it (which I'm sure she did) she probably had a small heart attack.

    What's funny is that we had just gotten done talking about language and how strong language can make it your intent very clear but that one should be careful not to insult or enrage the attacker further by degrading him through language. It's also about how witnesses can/will hear things as well. Adding an expletive to drive a point like "GET AWAY FROM ME!" could be good because there is no way of misinterpreting that (from the attacker or the bystander). But insulting someone in a derogatory manner with a few other choice expletives can only serve to enrage them further.

    We were also warned that strong words should sound natural. Nothing is as silly as someone trying to swear when they can't (think Mel Gibson's character in Signs as they are running around the house, "I am insane with anger!" That kind of a thing).

    However, I kind of saw red when I got into things and wasn't really aware of what was coming out of my mouth. I've had this happen in one other force-on-force and according to the gals who were standing around I was letting out a string of profanity that would make a sailor blush. After this particular scenario everyone took special note to tell me that the cursing sounded very genuine.

    I guess when I get ticked off I loose my brain/mouth filter.

    A couple of thoughts having watched the video. First, the initial sweep of the arms and first takedown were OK. That's the kind of thing that does tend to work.

    Once the BG is down, run for it. Don't hang around. (I understand the scenario wasn't about that, this is just a tactics remark.)

    If you're in position, use your legs like pistons and drive with your heels. The grab for the knife is really instructive in the video. Notice that there isn't much time. You did a great job of getting to your weapon and deploying it under stress. Once in hand, going for the BG's legs - particularly around the knees and tendons in the kneecap area, with digging "comma" cuts is recommended.

    Once again, thank you for the review, the FOF video (that was awesome), and all the other information you've shared here, on youtube, and on your webpage.
