Found two of his tapes there do they carry "Lesser Known Blows of Close Combat"? I see "Advanced strikes and blows".

I am afraid that I am not too sure what you mean when you state "lesser known blows'. But the "Advanced Strikes and Blows" tape covers the following:

-web of hand blow (aka-cradle strike, yoke hand, Y-hand strike)
-hammerfist
-double chin jab
-cupped hand blow
-elbows
-knees
-inside and outside edge of boot kick
-hook kick
-finger jab
-shoulder smash
-hip whip
-front snapping kick
-Stamping kick
-head butts

These blows and their variations are covered.

I could be very wrong I just started looking into this but I thought his tapes were:

Tape 1: Fundamentals of Unarmed Combat.
Tape 2: Lesser Known Blows of Close Combat.
Tape 3: Defense Against Grabs and Holds.

If anyone has info thats different I am all ears.

You could be right about his previous offerings. It is my understanding that Cestari's tapes were available at one time but then became scarce. The close-combat-video website that sells his videos, sells videos that were copied from his original tapes.

Of those currently offered:

OS1 (Old School series vol. 1): Fundamentals of unarmed combat

OS2 (Old School series vol. 2): Advanced Strikes and Blows

OS3 (Old School series vol. 3): Groundfighting

OS4 (Old School series vol. 4): Defenses against grabs and holds

OS5 (Old School series vol. 5): Bare knuckle boxing

He also has a tape on dirty clinch work, a couple of tapes on groundwork and a couple of tapes of his Fairbairn and O'Neill seminar.
