Description Technical Specs
In the past when someone asked me, "Jack, if I needed to use one of these spectacular pens as a defensive implement, what would I do?" Mainly I would advise them, "the pointy end goes towards the bad guy." More often than not they were looking for a little bit more help.

After having the pleasure of training with Mike on a few occasions and sharing a beer or two (or three) we dreamed up the idea of making true pen oriented self-defense training DVD. Something that took the topic further than even FOREVER ARMED did. This new video is more focused and more specific to the application of tactical pens as improvised defensive tools. It is the definitive guide by one of the foremost authorities on the topic and well worth watching.

A tactical pen is nothing more than a high-quality pen that provides all the same attributes as a purpose-designed "fist load" weapon like a Kubotan or yawara stick, but in the form of an ordinary-looking pen that can be carried virtually anywhere. But what really makes a tactical pen "tactical" is your ability to power it with a sound set of physical skills.

In this groundbreaking video, acclaimed self-defense instructor Michael Janich gives you those skills and dispels the many myths that surround the use of pens in self-defense. His step-by-step program includes everything you need to know to actually use a pen as an effective personal-defense weapon, including: considerations for pen selection, proper grip, carry options and draws, striking methods, and pressure-point tactics. More importantly, it teaches you how to integrate the pen into a complete set of combative mechanics, making it a force multiplier that works in concert with empty-hand parries and strikes, elbows, knees, kicks, and foot traps.

To isolate and develop the critical skills of the system, Janich teaches you a simple series of reflex training drills-partner drills that quickly instill the structure, timing, accuracy, and power necessary to fight effectively with a pen. Along the way, he puts every skill into context, demonstrating simple, practical, yet devastatingly effective counters to a wide variety of street attacks. Once you've built a sound foundation, this video teaches you how to apply the concepts of the system beyond rote technique, dynamically combining its combative elements and scaling their intensity to fit the nature of the threats you face.

Without the skills and confidence to power it, even the finest, best built pen in the world like a Tuff-Writer tactical pen is still just a pen. This video will help you realize its true potential and teach you what you need to know to make it a viable defensive tool.

Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Hartselle , AL United States  
I watched the DVD for the first time today and I was very impressed. Mr. Janich was very articulate in his ability to start with the basics of what a tactical pen is and go through different ways demonstrating with his partner how to use the pen.  He covered a lot including the importance of not using more force than necessary in defending yourself!  Money well spent!
