    "Devestate?" You're gonna defend yourself against a knife by taking off your attackers clothes, with "Devestating countermeasures????

    Gives "fear the tool" an entirely different meaning.....[​IMG]

    You all have no idea the things I've witnessed, sacrificed, and done just so men and women like you can live another day free from fear and oppression.

    dear white ghost why not start a thread explaining and exhorting your exploits . I'm sure we all would be amazed by them.
    Yes a knife is but a tool and learning to harness your fears is helpful but difficult and something that take time to learn.
    A knife is a weapon and can be the difference between life and death. A knife scares people but at the same time many people ave no clue what damage a knife can do

    I've got a pretty good idea of the things you've witnessed, sacrificed and done just so that men and women like me can live another day laughing our damn asses off!

    You are right, Danny T San, I apologize for my petulance. My sensei's taught me better.

    You are most welcome.

    You may believe I have a big ego, but believe me it is warranted. It is a necessity for a man who puts on a ninja outfit and fights crime.

    You having a large opinion of yourself is warranted... suffering with narcissism also.

    Only those who have a big ego believe it's warranted.

    Looks like an incarnation from the mind of the troll formerly giving birth to such classics as Mad_Dog and Crazy Eyes has decided to honor us with its presence again. :)

    (Sorry if posting to year old threads is against rules)
    The 30 feet rule is good, and if someone threatens me from that distance with gun (we have no firearms like you do in Finland) I would just obey and follow whatever he wants.
    If guy with knife threatens me from 30 feet I would try to reason with him, deploy baton or pepper spray (this is our number one tool basicly) and keep distance, if he starts getting closer I would try to spray (if he started running so would I without thinking of using my weapons) and run away and call for back-up.

    Ofcourse in situations like this depend where is it, inside office building or mall, or outside, day or night and so on.. I wouldn't like to encounter neither gun or knife.

    Would agree with that. Had a situation once where the local police rang the control room and warned us some nut job was in the marina and carrying. Asked to monitor on CCTV and monitor. Thankfully after some aggressive monitoring, I.E. making him realise he was being monitored by both camera and foot patrol, he retreated and was herded straight to the on site police at that point.

    Another one I and a colleague attended, was McDonalds where staff thought a male had a dagger in his satchel. Turned out to be home made nun chucks. He was so out of it, he quickly restrained and taken by the officers. Good job he was out of it. Apparently one of his favourite hobbies, was to start trouble with security and police alike. BTW, welcome along :)

    Please watch this video of street patrol police training. It takes about 7 meters between you and an opponent, to successfully draw, cock, remove the safety, aim and fire two shots before a knife fighter could reach killing range.
