    GM Latosa competed on "Knife or Death" on the History Channel. I don't think this episode has even aired yet. Likely from the upcoming 3rd season. Unfortunately it looks like Latosa chose the wrong blade for this competition.

    Rene's escrima has always been about fighting -- simple, direct and practical. Not surprised he didn't do well on a reality stunt show like this. I'd leave that stuff to somebody like Doug Marcaida. IMO he's a great showman. ;)

    The show is fun, and the challenges are certainly challenging... and require understanding of how to use your blade. There're a few that I'm skeptical are exactly possible... They're also a far cry from fighting with a knife...
