Anyone else here into knife fighting?

 

I've done quite a bit of it in the past and have lately started practicing again!

 

Really like Paul Vunak, Bruce Corrigan, Emerson and a few others!

 

My EDC currently is an Emerson CQC 10 in black!

 

Going to a Krav Maga seminar in Richardson Texas this weekend mainly for their sound disarm techniques!

 

Can't wait!!!

Knife fighting in what respect?

I own a bunch of knives, but never fought anybody with em. Particualrly a WWI trench knife, which definitely was designed for the task of close combat. Haha. It's always just come down to my mitts, which have yet to fail me...

No not really into this. Faced a few knife wielders when I was a bouncer years ago and always managed to disarm them without getting cut. If your talking about knife throwing I used to practice that alot as a kid back in Texas. Once nailed a running mouse at 15 feet with a knife throw at 12 yrs old. :D

MY EDC is a benchmade barrage most days and the military teaches some decent disarming techniques though I never got into knife fighting much beyond disarming the attacker and using hand to hand/chokes/joint manipulation to end it. I'm a big fan of Geoff Thompson, Lee Morrison and Kelly McCann.

Sorry for not mentioning the context.

 

I meant from the perspective if you was ever encountered by a knife wielding criminal/thug

or if you had to defend yourself or your family against someone intent on hurting/killing you.

Ever hear of the 21ft. rule? Real eye opener if you see someone skilled with a blade(s).

 

Just like self-defense but from a weapons perspective.

 

Anything that applies to short sticks applies to knives.

 

Aaron, you're very lucky to have disarmed a person with a knife without getting cut.

Very rare ineed! I don't know the circumstances but it's not realistic!

 

When we practice (soft) we use red dry markers which indicate you got cut, where, and how many

times. A real wake up call!

 

Not a nut here! Just one of many interests I have!

Ooooh.
Yeah that definitely sounds cool.
There is a systema club in Louisville that I keep saying I'm going to get involved with... Still haven't. Haha. But I'm pretty sure knife fighting/disarming is an aspect of that.

Makes me think of Clint Eastwood. "You're gonna look real funny with that knife stickin' out of your ass."

The three E's Escape if the option exists, Equalize, aka use whatever is in your environment, Eliminate, aka I can't escape and now it's me or him and my mindset is I'm walking away at all costs.

 

Disarming without harm depends on what you know and what the attacker knows, the risk of being harmed is there no matter your skill but the more you know and the more you have practiced under stress the better chance you have of walking away unharmed, but be aware that in these situations the worry isn't superficial wounds, it is mortal wounds.

 

Training under stress is key which is why Geoff Thompson's animal days work well. It's great that you guys are training using dye Joe, it gives you a real idea of what works and what doesn't.

Not that complicated. Drunks are slow, predictable and stupid. Someone sober, explosively fast and strong, able to keep their head and expecting stupid actions has a great advantage in most situations against a drunk unless they are shooting at you. Then it comes down more to luck. I doubt I would have been so lucky against a sober person with bad intent.

Aaron's feats never cease to amaze me.  I thought armwrestling a biker to get his gang to leave the bar was pretty badass.  This is even higher on the badass scale.

Joe,

 

I am a fan of bladed weapons and own many.  My interest is more in tomahawks, but I do enjoy knives as well.

 

I recently picked up the Cold Steel Spike Hawk Tomahawk from Knifehog.  After setting the screw deeper into the wood, it is a beautiful weapon of mass destruction. :shuriken:

 

However, I prefer to carry weapons that go BOOM for personal protection.

Nice 'hawk Rick, I have a couple of SOG tomahwks that I like.

 

 

I carry a knife daily but agree 100% on the BOOM part.

Aaron, I thought that was the case but I wasn't going to speak for you.

 

Thanks for sharing your story!

Couldn't agree more Rick!

 

Knives and knife fighting skills is just something I really like!

 

I always carry a knife and nowadays I'm always, locked, cocked, and ready to rock (BOOM) as well!!! ;)

I have trained in Army Combative Training and some Krav Maga which I really enjoyed- As you know it is a very offensive style which I really like-taking the fight to the aggressor with a total commitment to STOP them at all cost!

I trained at erik paulsons gym in fullerton for a bit and he was into the knife fighting-he has trained lots of top mma fighters and has was one of the pioneers of the sport-.  He mixed in self defense techniques with the class also though.  I only watched mostly  mainly did kickboxing and grappling for my workout at the time.  A lot of women did the class though, I think any form of self defense is useful to know for sure. I am a decently big guy so not generally a target as people who might not look as intimidating.

I've been thinking of trying Krav Maga one of these years.  I heard they are big on the training under fatigue concept.  Hopefully all these kb swings/snatches will help keep me out of la-la land when they are doing the teaching part.

I've had a big interest in knives and knife fighting for as long as I can remember, my fav knife company is definitely Cold Steel, I bought my first serious "fighting" knife (a tanto) from them when I was 21. 

 

I now have quite a collection of various knives, some fighting type knives - I happen to like Bowie knives and have quite a few of those.
