    the movements are okay, but its not practical to finger grip a knife as you maneuver between slashes. youll just graze the person or do nothing at all. a knife fight is not like a sword, gun or fists, its much harder to train for a knife fight. these moves are just flashy, not effective.

    No knife attacker lunges forward with a single thrust. Most stabbing are where the knife is concealed, the attacker walks up and uses rapid stabbing movements. This fellow is depicting a totally unrealistic scenario.

    Your indexing is smooth. Very fluid…I like it. In Arnis, we index with "snap"…and to change style or potential attacks. Indexing at contact distance (in my system) is a no-no, simply because I might drop my weapon since my opponent will be moving unpredictably, or attempting a disarm. When we have the protective gear on and things are moving fast, I wouldn't index unless there was a "lull" or some distance. That said–there is material here I have never seen. Very interesting.

    The problem is: Yes, maybe his defenses are realistic against these attacks. But the attacks themselves are NOT. The attacks are kind of very static. You won't find this in street fight!

    Hello.. Well, i was actually looking for Sensi Hayford on the Internet… found something that made me remember him..  He was the most amazing instructor I ever had… and it was just a weekend seminar that my school in Baltimore had come up for… in 1988/89.. was wondering if he had ever recorded any of his classes like this… but of course, like my own school.. it is now in the past. Chin-Jitsu Dojo in Baltimore, with Sensi Will Daniels.. (also passed now)

    Well knives I don't want to play with. You can't teach someone a lesson with a knife, all you'll do is kill them. I prefer to teach lessons. If I fight, want the opponent to learn.

    I think that ANY style's greatest master would agree with that sentiment; the rest is just details.
