    Thank you sir. I kinda figured having the blade facing outward in the reverse grip was a better way of going about it, so it was nice seeing someone like you affirm it

    using a reverse grip with a wal mart folding box cutter (cutting edge outward) is DEADLY. if you doubt this, try it on a hanging bag of sand or a hanging piece of meat and see how deeply it cuts in case you would ever have to defend yourself with such an improvised weapon. it works WITH a natural punch motion we grew up with.

    Thumbs up

    Your exploitations of heaven six seems endless, which is the best for combat. Only one motion you learn and everything built on it. Your way of basing everything on the heaven six allows the student to become REALLY proficient, and it still is never boring since so many things can be done with it.
    Also the deeper stances you mentioned would provide a better base for the wrestling phase, and in my experience whenever sparring (let alon a real fight) gets enthusiastic grappling happens
