His book published years ago (out of print) had a whole chapter on this sort of stuff.

I saw a private video of one of his law enforcement seminars where he was teaching the kubotan. He was doing some amazing things like scenarios where he (the cop) would be on the ground and he would strike a standing attacker on a leg pressure point with the kubotan - bringing the attacker to the ground writhing in pain. Keep in mind these were cops - not compliant ukes.

This footage was way more interesting than the set that came out later from black belt imo.
