    I was thinking the same. And if I ever get the chance, I'll do my best to put in one.
    The fool thinks himself immortal,
    If he hold back from battle;
    But old age will grant him no truce,
    Even if spears spare him.

    I will agree that it makes more sense to train unarmed against a knife more. And overly compliant dance training is worthless armed or unarmed.
    I suppose some training is better than none, but in my opinion for sparring to be effective you have to try and work in good technique. Part of the problem with knife fighting techniques is that there aren't a lot of people who can verify what works and doesn't work in a knife fight from personal experience.

    OK I partly agree with this. However even in that stage there should be some level of resistance, for example your partner should make sure you get them off balance before they let you throw them. I'm assuming these girls have been doing their training for less than a couple weeks, and they will get better. However learning punch punch, takedown[girl 1], sprawl, crossface, circle, rnc [girl 2] will not do anything for you if your opponent offers no resistance. The reason is all those times you can't get a technique to work and you ask your coach and they watch and correct you on a few steps or explain the concept better. This video explains it best.

    Wow Smoke.. I've never seen a knife defense where you let the other person stab you before you disarm them. I haven't watched the chi gong videos yet, but assuming that they are not actually combat oriented, your karate knife training video takes the cake so far!

    Remember, when you take you enemy's rifle, roll towards him and kick him in the face.

    Well I only said that there aren't a lot of people who can verify what works based on experience. I didn't say that there aren't any. If you are willing perhaps you could visit Manila and try and get training from a seasoned veteran in knife fighting, then you will be aptly equipped to report back to us what works.

    Check into dog brothers. They've done for stick and knife fighting what MMA has done for unarmed combat. Alive training doesn't mean death matches. Otherwise we'd all be doing Wing Chun and be too deadly too spar.
