Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone owns, or has seen Hock Hochheim's video Knife Theme: Solo Command & Mastery. Im looking for a video that will teach me solo drills to do with the knife and any help/opinions would be appreciated.

Thanks,


Jon

It depends on your experience with knife training. Hock's video has some very good basic material. The best way to describe his approach is a stripped down FMA kept to a very simple level to allow fast learning/good retention. (this is not, by the way, a negative comment). If you have little to no FMA or blade experience, and if you are looking for solo training concepts, this is definately a good place to start. I think you will find that Hock has very good teaching concepts.
(I would also suggest looking at one or more of the Sayoc DVDs once you get comfortable moving with a blade)

Yes I have, it's one of my favorite tapes I show to people who are interested in knifefighting. It teaches you how to slash and thrust for example against something Hock calls a "Chinese War Post", a device looking like the famous Wing Chun Wooden Dummy. Plus he shows how to build a Chinese War Post for yourself. I think that it's one of the best videos teaching people with no or only a little training and no access to an instructor.

Working out the drills Hock demonstrates will give you a good foundation to work with.

Best to you
