    Watching both 1 and 2 vids I have a question. You position your non-knife holding hand palm towards you when checking. Likely you have chosen this because it works for you. Myself, I found both hands palm out more reflexive as it built off my natural flinch response, that of putting your palms out in a defensive motion. Something which would be the norm. Too, in that bicep flex position with your palm out you have considerably more strength than with the palm towards you. For any reading this test it yourself, right palm towards you, you can easily use your left hand to push your right onto your shoulder. Palm out, now you can resist that energy. Borrow a phrase from a UK combatives instructor, "It doesn't matter what color the cat is so long as it catches the mouse!", but I am curious how you came to choose the seemingly mechanically weaker response.

    The 5 single-strike points: high inside of thigh, inside top of the bicep, bottom of sternum, center between the clavicles, upward under the earlobe, level above the orbital bone.

    Much better than the last one. The critics here can be tactically brutal. 😉 Why much better? The scenario was set up better verbally and you didn't neglect to explain footwork in the sequence. Bladed weapon combat is extremely foreign to a contemporary American audience. Technical production is a "cut above" (pun intended) most melee self-defense videos. LH variation was also covered. Good job!

    This is great teaching, specially the attack to the axillary plexus with arteries and vein. Knife attacks are to be feared and so if avoidable get first the heck or out Dodge, as fast and far as possible. But if unavoidable then what you have shown is great teaching from the USCCA.
