The need to buy additional tapes to understand this one: Tape 3 in this series
would be necessary for complete understanding
In this tape, Professor
Vee and Shihan David James take up where they left off in the previous tape by demonstrating
various " dimensions" of the stick versus the 5 basic angles of attack.
One dimension is cupping the hand and Professor Vee works this particular dimension
against the 5 angles using flowing striking methods seen on the previous video. He
proceeds to another dimension, the "butt" dimension where he uses the butt
of the stick against the 5 angles of attack and working in the striking techniques
shown on the previous video. Folks, if you want to learn how to flow, then this is
where it's at. The footwork, the multiple hand coordination, the target acquisition
skill, and the high / low attacks are a thing of beauty in Professor Vee's hands.
James then does a similar routine using the knife, pointing out the similarities
between the knife and the stick. He too shows impressive knowledge of flow and aggressive
Next, we are treated to many scenarios where Shihan James defends
himself in various situations such as backgrabs, front chokes, hook punches where
he shows the entire Vee Arnis Jitsu system at work. The " touch and go "
striking, the changing of the opponent's focus, the finishing holds of the jiu jitsu
portion of this incredibly deadly system are all seen at work in this final segment.
Plus, this video is filled with good advice on dealing with typical street scenarios.
Good advice on what to do and more importantly, what not to do. Everytime I watch
a new tape by these guys, I say it can't get any better. But so far, it has kept
getting better with each video. I think the readers of this review know how I feel.
Go buy this video ( and the other ones that I have reviewed ) and check it out for
yourself. I promise that you won't be disappointed.
