    If I was the poster of this video, I would just block the comments section, because there is nothing but idiotic people posting. He can throw a knife, hes showing you how. Hes not here for weight tips, or fashion advice, he is here to demonstrate something. How about you all look at his teachings, instead of his belt size. Amazing I need to say this in 2014, you would think people would be smart enough to know not to be judgmental pricks, but I guess that's giving you people too much credit.

    When I was kid I would use my mom's kitchen knives and I would practice throwing them at the tree. I was probably 10 years old when I taught myself. It's really not hard, and people make it more complicated than it needs to be.

    This guy has a kind of strange technique. I definitely wouldn't recommend it for everyone. Art of Manliness should get with somebody that can demonstrate the basics well (ahem. Like myself! Or various other youtubers like CombatKnifeThrower or Xolette), and then suggest someone with an advanced technique like this.

    I didn't hear anything about knife throwing.  All I could think about is this guy having a heart attack soon.  Guys, if I ever let my body get this bad, throw me in the Hunger Games arena.

    His instruction is mostly correct. I wouldn't take his advice as gospel though. Puting your thumb on the side of the knife(combat style) is ok for half spins and one spins but anything much farther than that and the knife will catch to much wind resistance and not be consistent. There is a reason why expert knife throwers throw the way they do. You want as little "bullet spin" (twisting, spiraling) as possible so the knife has the least wind resistance. Another thing I don't agree with us the stepping into the throw. It does ad lots of velocity and penetrating power but you loose accuracy. If you are doing it to look cool and to throw long distance then yes, step into it. But if you are going for accuracy and consistency(competition) then stand the same way every time and use mostly your hips, shoulder and arms. Your stance and follow through are key. The video was cool, no doubt but not gospel. Check out our channel for knife and tomahawk throwing. Trick shots are our specialty at the moment.
