Practical Filipino Kuntao Defense
 Against Firearms and Edged Weapons

Rick Hernandez

Few things are more terrifying than having to defend yourself, unarmed, against an attacker holding a knife or a gun. To do this successfully, you need a powerful combination of fighting spirit, sound tactics and devastating technique. You need T.A.C.S.A.F.E.

T.A.C.S.A.F.E. (Tactical Awareness and Control Strategies Against Firearms and Edged Weapons) is a dynamic program of empty-hand weapon defenses based on the combat-proven techniques of Filipino Kuntao.

And Kuntao expert Rick Hernandez takes you step-by-step through this unique program in this DVD. In doing so, he conveys what it takes to successfully defend against an armed attacker.

Hernandez teaches you his street-proven defenses against close-range slashing and stabbing attacks, including prison-style shankings. He also reveals the secrets of his universal method of handgun disarms. From simple deflections, evasions and avoidance tactics to hard-core disarms, strikes, kicks, eye gouges and neck breaks -- this DVD covers it all.

T.A.C.S.A.F.E: Practical Filipino Kuntao Defenses Against Firearms and Edged Weapons (Paladin Press) color, approximately 150 minutes ISBN 1-58160-302-9.

Comments about TACSAFE Include:
In a world filled with dangerous individuals, one of the highest compliments I offer is awarding someone "Crosshair Status." It is short for "The only way I'd mess with him is through crosshairs." While the idea of sniping someone from a great distance may not sound particularly professional or complimentary, among the often grim humor of those whose job it is to face danger it is an understood standard. It means that the person is too good, too dangerous and too on top of his game to safely take them down in any other way. Rick Hernandez is such an individual, an ex-Brooklyn street thug and Army Ranger, the man was dangerous BEFORE he started studying Kuntao. While my opinion is that pure kuntao is too excessively brutal for self-defense, the concepts that make it extremely effective can be scaled back to operate within judicious use of force standards without losing their effectiveness. On the other hand for individuals operating within combat zones or in high-risk professions where quickly and effectively neutralizing an immediate threat is necessary you're going to want to know the information in this tape. My only complaint about his tapes is that while Rick is a funny, vivacious and exciting teacher in person he stiffens up in front of a camera. He's not going to get any academy awards for acting, but if you learn what he is talking about in this tape, you might be around to watch the next Academy Awards on T.V. -- Marc MacYoung
