Tip of the Spear Module and in general, Knife Level 9

The Basic 4 top, sides and low and the advanced 12 Muggers threat positions (more specific and under the cover of a a jacket) and their inital attacks are now on Knife 9 (This newest DVD) These mugger positions were in my 1999 Unarmed vs Knife book also.

BUT, I tried my hardest to fit the whole Tip Of the Spear Module into the Level 9 Knife DVD and I just couldn't. The Tip mosuled also has knife ground capture/threats that McCann and I brainstormed and developed. The Knife 9 DVD is already two hours long and I just, simple could not fit "Tip of the Spear" into it.

It looks like I am going to have to do a whole counter-crime Tip of the Spear DVD. Maybe also a 2-set. Old timers will remember the  old Alley Cat Street Fighters Module? That whole Alley set fits right inside Tip of the Spear.

Tip of the Spear is a military expression as well as bing quite self explanatory. It means being on the front line doiing all that front line work.

One night, my friend Steve Krystek was almost killed (not a close call! They thought he was dead.) and we talked about it. He mumbled to me,

                                              "Yeah, it's not easy being on the tip of the spear."

After that night, the line meant way, extra more to me and I decided to use it as a module title for the "static knife threats," kidnappings and criminal confrontations.

The film will be dedicated to Steve Krystek. Who is alive, well and prospering.
