"I had the honor to have Eric Murray and Mark Wyler as instructors they used many of the techniques in this DVD. This DVD will teach you many things that you will find extremely usefull in law enforcment ex(Expandible baton, Handcuffing, Mulptile Officer Control,Uncuffing and more ). It is very informative and very practical. I recommend this to any person in the law enforcment field that wants to learn new methods of defence and hand to hand combat. This is a must have !!!!"
Pressure points & handguns

"This is a training film for police officers; the techniques are not well suited for general self defense or even armed citizens. The film has basically two subjects: pressure points, and handguns.
The pressure point section opens up with presentation of various pressure points and target areas found in human body. The pressure points presender in the film are divided into hard and soft techniques; the hard techniques are basically hits and kicks into pressure point areas, meant to be used against actively resisting or even aggressive opponents. The soft techniques are pressing techniques that can be used against passively resisting opponents. First Mark Wyler and Eric Murray present several pressure point techniques used with bare hands (both hard and soft techniques), and after that they cover Kubaton techniques.
The second half of the film covers handgun retention and disarming. In the film, they show several different handgun retention techniques, both gun still in holster or gun in hand. I find one of these techniques especially good (both reliable and simple), therefore I have taken it as my primary handgun retention technique. After handgun retention, they show several handgun disarming techniques that can be used in situations the officer is threatened on gunpoint.
The production of the film is good: everything works fine, but there is nothing especially good either. I found that the film has a bit too much emphasis on Kubaton techniques for my taste, but they make it up by presenting several excellent gun retention techniques.
Run time: 1:06"

"OF ALL THE BASIC TRAINING PRODUCTIONS OUT THERE THIS ONE IS VERY WELL MADE, AND EXPAINS EVERY TECHNIQUE IN DETAIL AND WITH NUMEROUS REPETITIONS. IT IS GREAT FOR THE BEGINNER AND FOR THE MORE ADVANCED OFFICER."
