I watched the video and didn't see any direct rein, but I think maybe we're having a discipline/terminology disconnect.
If by "direct rein" you mean something other than neck rein, well, yeah, I saw opening or leading rein without contact.
Coming from my discipline/experience, I use direct rein to mean direct rein of oppostition as one of the five classic rein aids:
- Opening or Leading Rein
- Indirect Rein of No Opposition – also known as a “neck” or “bearing” rein
- Indirect Rein Behind the Withers –also, the “indirect rein of opposition behind the withers”
- Indirect Rein in Front of the Withers –also, the “indirect rein of opposition in front of the withers”
- Direct Rein of Opposition – the rein commonly thought of as the ordinary “direct rein”
Thought the videos were neat and he was an interesting trainer.
