    But what about Professor Ronald Duncan?

  2. Bill says:

    Should be titled “Best ways to be stabbed to death”

    Pretty much Filipino Kali, which I think should be taught first in Basic before any sort of grappling/MMA is introduced.

    When your gun goes click instead of bang, are you going to reach for your knife first, or go for the arm-bar?

    For those who think this stuff sucks, where did you go though your 80 hour course in knife fighting?

    • Bill says:

      Pointy end goes in to other guy, repeat as necessary. If you think this shit will work or that you need some long drawn out class in the “art” of knife fighting I have bad news for you.

      • Joe says:

        So what you saying is, no training is better than some sort of training, any training and no experience is better than some experience.

        Ok then.

        For the rest of us, we’ll train.

        And kill the guy who never bothered.

        • Drambus says:

          I think what he’s saying is knife fights are never one sided if both are armed. One person dies the other goes to the hospital very badly injured regardless of training.

          Other than that, yeah, training to better the odds will help, but when knives are involved, it won’t be that much.

    If anyone here has trained with a marking blade you’ll soon discover that both the attacker and defender get cut.

    Ask OJ how his hand got cut?

    Training in blades is something all serious self defense minded folks should do. Reason being is if you’ve never attacked with an edged weapon or stick you’ll not know how to defend against one. Same applies to guys boxing air then hit their first bag and realize its a whole different world.
