Was re-reading Barry Eisler's book, The Graveyard of Memories, and looked through the acknowledgements for the first time. Saw a bunch of good stuff, including this link to a video on the Tueller Drill. For those not familiar, this has been out for quite some time and the police have used this as part of their training. The premise is that a skilled knife wielder can get to someone armed with a handgun within 21 feet before the can successfully draw and use their weapon. Many years ago, I saw a police training video where only one out of the lot of police officers was successful in drawing and using his firearm before getting "killed." Most of the rest were "killed" before they could even draw. There are a lot of different ways to evade and defend yourself. A basic way is to just move offline of the attack to buy yourself some time. In the police video (you may be able to find it is you care to look, although I think I saw it on TV before youtube), the lone success did that, if I recall correctly. Most of the rest stood their ground and tried to draw. Anyway, the video in Eisler's book (I highly recommend his John Rain series) is here: And I was pleasantly surprised to see Michael Janich in it. I have had the privilege of training with him in years past. He is the real deal. Especially with a knife! And I am happy that training was pleasant and he never tried to put the hurt on me. Because then, I would be hurt. He actually helped me quite a bit. Also, saw that he has a series on TV. I think it is called something like "The Best Defense." Accidentally stumbled upon an episode of that one time. Michael Janich is a bad man. But a good man. It's been many years since I have last seen him. And he still looks the same.
