Hand to Hand cross spieces fighting

In view of this discussion, it occurs to me that the Jenoine (or the two
random ones Vlad first meets) are "more than nine feet tall" so Vlad's
pushing a dagger into one's head is rather odd.  Say he's 6 feet tall (do
we know anything about this?), and say a Jenoine's chin is 8 feet off the
ground, I can see this, but only if Vlad is on tippy-toe standing on the
Jenoine's feet, which seems unlikely since the J just turned around at the
time and has long arms which it presumably swings around when turning...
