    how would you defend your self with running and flying heymaker ,with full rage ? like some speed up torpedo ,fighting for his life ,becouse he sees knife ? also consider if someone might go for takedown .

    Makes the old guy (me) very happy to have a 1911 in my Miami rig. Otherwise not having to prove my 'manhood' to anybody I would throw the damned thing at my adversary, run as fast as the old fat guy could … Turn and double tap you knife guys with +P flying ash trays and be damned glad if I walked away intact. I have a couple BC41 knuckle duster knives with the edge and n what appears to be the reverse side. Any idea how to use one of them? FYI great vid. Etc. etc. thanks for your time, information and EFFORT!

    enjoyed your video. subscribed. You're on point about the reverse grip defending the head. one drawback to reverse is you're deprived of that Thor-like pommel leverage to the head, alto you still can step inside and hook the pommel to the face with an added trailing slash should you just graze. where are you guys?

    As your opponent tries to lunge and strike, defend the blow then lunge yourself at him giving your legs enough force to sweep him and take him to the ground. Thats what i do.

    Boxing is my skills and my friend (who was into knife fighting for years) suggested i stick to what i know best. I tried the classical ways of striking and it just didnt work for me. I felt most comfortable with the reverse grip and i can "jab" the threat fast and i find it easy to stick the blade in their face.

    With footwork, i did just fine in knife sparring against my friend who has been training for about a decade.

    human looking aliens and other ETs are killing people and are planning an public invasion/attack and mass manipulation against everyone. This will most likely occur around 2017. We will need warriors to fight them. PLEASE LISTEN to this youtube video. https://youtu.be/b1C8JBq0bqU

    Great pointers, fellas! (I EDC a ka-bar short so these techniques are damn near perfect for my purposes. I'm also was amateur boxer, pre-injury, so that lends itself to Emerson Knife boxing, Pikal, footwork, and various FMA techniques and a lot of the stuff here, I reckon)

    Is that an ARMA outfit your partner is wearing?

    idk about reverse grip hard choice for most I like forward and instead of stabbing, slicing is more traumatic. even if your stuck with a small blade u can still slice. first cut people go into shock most of the time. forward grip gives u more reach also, not saying stabs and pokes don't have a place because u get what u can in a life or death situation.
    reverse vs forward  grip vid we talk about both check it out!
