Written Summary:

WOW, Mr. Geyston sure does have some fast hands. This tape was loaded with some great techniques. Again I would kind of classify it as a "one step" type tape, but the way it was done, Mr. Geyston provides the viewer an "eye opening" experience. Here are some of the things we really liked, the side head butt, side neck crank, head twist/takedown, collarbone kicks, elbow smash to a striking fist, Mr. Geyston's various reinforced locks, his elbow wraps, wrist wraps, ankle/shin wraps, and come-alongs. We really liked Applications 1-6. By the way, the sound problems that we noticed on Tape 1 were nowhere to be found on Tape 2. Another great all around tape that demonstrates endless self defense possibilities.
