    Understanding the knife encounter.

    Either you have thighs of steel or your grossly exaggerating, or he wasn't commited, or there is another possibility........ He just as easily could have stuck his thumb two inches into your eyeball socket, and you'd of been going to the hospital. Guarantee you had he done that, you wouldn't...

    Understanding the firearm encounter.

    Let me refer to the clip and tell you the officer never got an injury until he shot the guy. Big difference here, big difference. Nobody is advocating a one shot kill. I haven't said that, and I'm relatively sure that Black Lion hasn't said that. What we have said, is get the injury. The deal...

    McDojo or not?

    I'll give you my opinion, and a little story. When I was in Aikido, the first test was $65 bucks, 2nd was $75, 3rd was $85 4th was $95 the fifth test which would have been 1st kyu on rank below blackbelt, was $105 bucks, and the black belt test was $120 bucks. Now, I don't have a problem with a...

    Understanding the knife encounter.

    Ok, no I see what your saying. This guy is swinging this icepick in a hammer type fashion. It's possible to pull off a key-lock in this situation also. However, the principle is the same. It doesn't matter whether he's trying to use your head as a giant nail head and shove this ice pick through...

    Understanding the knife encounter.

    This is actually a good example of a standard defense against a knife. It is one that my father taught me. But, there is a problem with it. So let's step back just for a moment, and think about the three kinds of basic fighters there are in the world. Offensive fighters, defensive fighters, and...

    King of Gypsies stabbed by 6 men

But you were offended by mine in an early post on a different thread??? And I didn't even discriminate...

    Help choosing a style?

    One last thing don't mean to keep posting, but you've got a Krav Maga school looks to be near you. You stated that you wanted to be active, and that self-defense was plus but not your main focus. But, why not get both if you can. My understanding is Krav is a workout all by itself, and very...

    Help choosing a style?

    SHould have read all of the posts first I guess. Uhm, you should be sparring against the guys. That's who your most likely to meet in a self-defense situation to my mind. If he isn't comfortable with that, well, maybe you should think long and hard about going there. There are weirdos even in...

    Help choosing a style?

    Had a buddy in high school who was dating this girl and they both went to BJJ classes together. He said she was so flexible that when they sparred she routinely beat him, because she could get him in an arm lock and a leg lock at the same time. I don't know how true that is or how possible, I...

    Who do you fear the most?

    Anyone. I don't want to fight anyone, and I'm afraid to fight everyone. I don't want to get hurt, so I don't want to fight anyone. However, if I have no other choice in the matter, then it really doesn't matter who it is, I'm gonna be just as scared as he is. Hopefully while I'm saying in my...

    Understanding the firearm encounter.

    Yeah, moving is definitely better. So the statistic is pretty right on then. So figuring that, your most pressing matter isn't being shot once it's being shot more than once. Right? Of course you don't want to get shot even once, but you know what I mean. YOu either have to run and get the hell...

    Understanding the firearm encounter.

    Another thing that I would like to add, is that from what I've been told your main worry is multiple shot wounds. I guess in about 85-90% of the time, the gunman doesn't actually hit a vital target that will kill you. It's the multiple gun shot wounds that you have to worry about. So even if you...

    Understanding the knife encounter.

    I don't believe I ever said that I was or believed that I could get a one hit knockout. Nope I didn't. As far as dealing with the steel. The bottom line is if your in a knife vs no-knife situation, your going to get cut or stabbed. YOu just have to figure that your going to, because the odds are...

    Handling contradictions between what you want, and what you think is right....?

    Everyone has this issue Bob. I think the trick though is to do and say what you feel is right. An example would be in politics. When the person that you like is from a different party. In my mind voting for a president was and has never been about what party that you belong to, it's about voting...

    Is Self Defense A Human Right? The UN Doesn't Think So.........

    And again my point proven. Good job tez! Reminds me of a 5 year old. I'm telling mom you called me a doo-doo head. Get real dude. Grow up a little. There was absolutely nothing wrong with my post. It is an opinion and I did state it. If you feel that it is offensive that is your perogative. you...

    Is Self Defense A Human Right? The UN Doesn't Think So.........

    Anybody and everybody from another country who thinks that we shouldn't have our firearms because they allowed their's to be taken away. Mainly at the united nations and the countries that decided to create such a piece of crap as that which has been shown here on this thread. I was once asked...

    Plz tell me about To Shin Do Home Study Course

    Yeah, I didn't say lend. LOL! My point being, maybe he doesn't have $400.00 to spend on a regular basis, for training. Maybe he has saved up $400 dollars over the course of time, remember this guy lives in hong kong, maybe all he can afford is $400 bucks. What about a place to stay when he gets...

    Plz tell me about To Shin Do Home Study Course

    I don't want to start an argument, but, if it's nothing you should send him the $400 bucks for the flight. I'm sure he would appreciate it.

    Is Self Defense A Human Right? The UN Doesn't Think So.........

    This is what I think. I think that I don't know much at all about europe, and I don't care to. I think I don't know very much at all about a lot of countries, and it's not my job, or duty to understand there laws or there situations because I don't live there. I live in America. I think it's my...

    "Taken"...Great movie...but what is it?

    Man I love that movie. IT reminded me of the movie Big Jake. Classic lines, great combat scenes it was a really good movie. As far as the fighting, I'm not to familiar with the philipino arts but it looked alot like what Matt Damon was doing in the Bourne Identity movies to me. I know they used...

    Understanding the knife encounter.

    Good vid man. That is basically what I'm saying, but it's not just about overwhelming him with strikes, but targeted strikes. Where it hurts and you get a reaction that normal people are going to give you. You can hit a guy all you want, but if it doesn't cause damage, it does no good. Getting...

    Understanding the knife encounter.

    YOur absolutely correct. The bottom line is that it is whatever works. In reality if you grab the knife hand, and take the guy down or break his arm, or go for injuries and break the guys arm, I guess in the final analysis if it gets the job done, and you get to go home safe, it's the best in...

    Understanding the knife encounter.

    Yeah I like nike-do, it is real effective. I prefer it to being stabbed, or cut. LOL! I've also heard of an art called Ju do know, Ju do know I gotta knife, Ju do know I gun. LOL!

    Understanding the knife encounter.

    Just got done checking out there videos. And I have to say the very end proves my point. THe two guys at 6:34 are practicing and the guy in the blue catches the guy in black "wrong" or "right" depending on your point of view. Got the injury, and yes it's an injury. Knocks the guy down, and...

    Understanding the knife encounter.

    I had a very long response to your post and I've just decided to answer it this way. Your very luck you've never been knocked out. You obviously haven't met the man that could do it yet. I applaud you for superior toughness and resilience. While you must protect yourself however you feel is...

    Understanding the knife encounter.

    I would disagree with you on your number 1. I don't think it's important to grab the knife hand. Most people can't and won't grab the knife hand. I think your main focus should be to turn the brain off. If you turn his brain off you accomplish all of your objectives and do so at once. 1) he is...

    Understanding the knife encounter.

    I just wanted to clarify something real quick. I guess it's not that prisoners are the best at "it", however they are the most successful at using the tool of violence. Those are the kinds of guys that Black Lion is talking about going up against. The A-Social individual who just plain doesn't...
