The formal clip will be up on the front page in a day or three, but until then here's the promo clip:

Here's the text from the back of the cover:

In DBMA "Die Less Often 1:  Intro to the Interface of Gun, Knife, and Empty
Hand" we had our FOF (Force On Force) drills take on some of the
characteristics of scenario training wherein the players engage in a
certain amount of acting.  The purpose was to help the viewer get a sense
of situations where "the Interface Paradigm" could arise.

In this DVD we have deliberately limited ourselves to drills which are
intended to isolate the performance of particular physical skills.   We
want people who go through training with us to have an experience of
exactly how much distance they need to ensure for their particular skills
and fitness levels that they can ensure a gun solution to a knife problem-- 
and to recognize when combatives are the first step of the solution.  We
want them to have a sense of how to maximize their odds with a combatives
structure that will enable them to "die less often" when the excrement hits
the fan.  Here focus is on that structure generating the ability to access
the gun (or other weapon).  And-- key point here-- we want the underlying
structure of the gun fighting footwork and angles and the combatives
footwork and angles to be essentially the same thing.  In our opinion, the
adrenal state demands this.

One more point.  The idea is NOT to let yourself get into situations where
you can/have to use these skills.  The purpose of this training is for you
to understand what the odds are FOR YOU and integrate these skills into
your "threat management" accordingly.

Great to watch.  Love the editing.  It's like watching an instructional movie.

What's the purpose of the mosaicing?  Are they to obscure the techniques for this promo clip or will they will in the final DVD.  Either way, they leave space for the imagination.

The use of mosaics is to hide the technique  wink grin cheesy  The mosaic will not be used in the actual DVD of course.

I received a week back, along with those awesome Kamagong sticks.

I thought this was an excellent, excellent DVD. The material covered continues to be what I would consider real world, very practical, high odds of being effective material should one find oneself on the receiving end of a knife attack. The DLO training demonstrates the highly chaotic nature of combat. You may have your A game going, and still lose. But if you have certain elements going for you and in your favor, you have a much higher probability of turning the fight in your favor. Even "Nena", who watched the DVD with me, said at the end of it "that was a pretty damn good DVD."

Once again, in my humble opinion, Crafty and Gabe have produced material that should be in every pistolero's arsenal. It is simply not enough to be a gun guy. If you really want to be able to protect yourself, and more importantly your loved ones, you have simply got to start leaving the comfort zone and stepping into the combatives world. You don't have to go psycho over it, but you must include the combatives spectrum (empty hand, edged weapon, impact weapon) into your tool box.

Again, this is a very good DVD.

Woof All:

The following quick initial review is by LEO and frequently published writer Kevin Davis:

"Die Less Often 2: Brining a Gun to a Knife Attack

"I just finished reviewing the second installment of Marc Denny and Gabe
Suarez's study of the "interface of empty hands and gun in defending
against the knife and I must say that I was very pleased with the DVD.

"When Calibre Press first examined knife defense for law enforcement more than
twenty years ago with "Surviving Edged Weapons" they sought out Dan Inosanto
to illustrate the deadly effectiveness of edged weapons.  Needless to say it
opened many officers eyes as to the devastating potential of the blade.
That said there was a large group of officers that believed that the answer
was to draw and shoot the knife wielding suspect, (this is still true
today...). 

"The first Die Less Often DVD clearly showed that unless you have
trained in simple gross motor skills and understand the dynamics of the
knife attack, the most you might achieve is a "mutual slay."  Die Less Often
2 picks up where the first DVD let off and shows how to first stop the
attack using the Kali Fence and Dog Catcher and then create the opening for
the pistol using sound movement.  Incorporating empty hand and the gun is a
"must" for today's LEO or armed citizen as statistics clearly show that most
armed encounters are close range affairs and frequently look more like a
"fight with guns" than the traditional "gunfight" a la "Shootout at the OK
Corral".

"Kudos to Marc and Gabe for bringing their respective talents together in the
pursuit of a safer way to defend against the blade.  I look forward to more
collaborative effort from these two modern day martial arts masters."

I just realized we have two threads on DLO-2.  In the interest of thread coherency, this being the bigger thread of the two, I am pasting below today's post on the other thread and locking the other thread.

===============

Wow!

I just received DLO & DLO 2 and have watched the first DVD of the series. EXCELLENT material. Can't wait to see DLO2!!!
