    For those of you who want to learn how to fight outside of sport:

    When you say you haven't come across an instructor who thinks it's universally reliable, are you dpeaking of MBC instructors, or instructors of different styles? Many instructors will tell you reverse grip fighting is a waste of time, yet others instructors have developed a full curriculum around it

    Who are the best instructors right now in combatives, weaponology, retention, blade work, and counter-abduction?

    There is an article on Piper in the August/September 2022 issue of Black Belt magazine, written by a good friend of mine. It is Piper from the perspective of Lloyd De Jongh, the other founder of Piper.

    Craig Douglas and Shivworks have been teaching about criminals attempts to misdirect victims for about 20 years now. He teaches a program specifically for it, Managing Unknown Contacts.

    Curious why you recommend Shivworks for clinch work with a gun (not disagreeing with you), but not for knifework. It's not like the company name gives a clue.

    Martial Blade Concepts is firmly based on "biomechanical cutting" and does not assume a heavy knife or a larger knife.

    Nothing is wrong with Terry. I've known him for over 20 years. Your list reads as a random selection of instructors. Of the people you list, to my knowledge only two have anything to do with counter abduction(well I knew of Ed Calderon, you pointed out Karl Oscardelta does the same). I'm more...

    Where did you come up with this list? Seriously Terry? Great guy if you're in small town Texas.

    You might want to replace that with Fairbairn Protocol out of Montreal. Barry is heavily focussed on presenting pure Fairbairn, and has been doing so for the last 14 years.

    For those of you who want to learn how to fight outside of sport:

    I've seen his stuff and am not impressed. He had the opportunity to train with some more experienced Fairbairn influenced instructors and chose not to. Then did a video on why he didn't go. When people who attended the seminar commented on his video, he changed his tune.

    What organizations are you referring to?Gutter fighting was Fairbairn's description of his wartime syllabus, as laid out in All-in Fighting and Get Tough!

    Train in self-defense program, or MMA?

    That's a really complicated way to say Fred Mastro self defense is based on Silat.

    The deadly Handshake!!!

    Having trained with Wally Jay and having trained in Underwood's Defendo, anyone pointing a finger like that, or poking it at you, is calling for a fingerlock.

    Combative systems, that offer remote training content, which focus on weapons-based grappling?

    Cecil did some remote stuff during the pandemic, there's plenty of stuff from Paul on Youtube, they both have DVDs available.
