It’s often said that the pen is mightier than the sword. When it comes to a defensive encounter, “mightier” may be debatable—but the pen is most certainly useful…
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 his groundbreaking new 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: equipment 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, a tactical pen is 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 weapon.
