    Because you can ride bikes and see people riding bikes. You can make an assesment on what it takes to be a good bike rider.

    You cant see what system makes people better at handling weapons.

    And the poilice bit is silly. I train with three police officers who do BJJ.

    yes and those officers will all have had specific training in disarming. That makes them better at,eer disarming than your average bjj bod

    I believe that typical armed forces hand-to-hand training, for a variety of legitimate reasons, is simple and fundamental, and not given a lot of time or energy.

    Just because something is taught to some armed forces, is not a reason to assume it is especially effective or sophisticated. Actually, it is often the opposite.

    Is that what you were getting at?

    I would say the opposite. If you have confidence in your 'knife drills' when someone tries to stab you, you are far more likely to see the inside of an ER than someone who holds no such(dangerous) belief.

    that would only be true if my confidence was misplaced. I'm only fighting a knife man if I have no,choice, unless I'm armed, so my confidence has little to do with it
    someone pulled a BIG Knife on me once during a road rage incident, I backed away to my bike and came back with a claw hammer. He didn't think that a fair fight and jumped in his car and shot off

    I hope, sincerely, that nobody reading this takes you seriously and adopts these sorts of beliefs and gets maimed or killed as a result.

    We are done here, and onto ignore you go.

    No your argument was. If police do it it must be relevant. Or they wouldn't do it.

    An argument for knife disarms would have to stand on its own merits.

    Wrong there aren't any disarms in bjj. Yes there's self defence aspects but there's no weapons involved at all.123
