    Teep for space and draw.
    Shove and draw.
    Back fall and draw. (Roll if you're good at it.)
    Throw/Trip retreat and draw.

    That's just off the top of my head.

    Obviously all these things should be trained if you plan on relying on them. If you're going to be carrying concealed you should practice drawing your weapon from a number of positions until it's second nature anyhow. A few new wrinkles isn't going to hurt you any.

    All of it? I know I've seen modern military training that involved knife work.

    Then there's the old school CQC based on Defendu. William Fairbairn, shall we say, was into using blades.

    Hmmm.

    Well, at least I can get Fairbairn's books and see how they used to do it. I'd rather there be a more up-to-date work I could consult, surely a few improvements have been made in CQC in the past six decades--real martial arts not being fixed and dogmatic.

    Thanks, good to know.

    Specifically what? I only got around to reading a couple long pages, and they seemed to be BS-free. Though I suppose I wouldn't really know, unless it was out-and-out laughable (Phil Elmore), since I'm a martial arts noob.

    Mostly this paragraph...

    "Since the age of 10, he has studied several styles of martial arts, including Karate, Wing Chun, Baqua/Hsing-I, Five Family Gung fu, Boxing, Western swordsmanship, Kali and various forms of Pentjak Silat. That's thirty five years of training and application. He has field-stripped and bastardized every style he studied in order to make it street effective. However, out of respect to his teachers and their styles, when it comes to martial arts, he doesn’t claim to teach anything other than the training system he and his wife Dianna have created, Dango Jiro. A body movement and tactical application system that draws from all of those arts (Don't be confused by the Japanese name, it means "Mulligan Stew"). When it comes to street survival and professional use of force he teaches No Nonsense Self-Defense. A combination of formal martial arts techniques and principles and his real life experience, supported by research into the areas of psychology, criminology, sociology and legal use of force."

    In this paragraph he claims lots of martial arts experience, and no belts or rankings, and no teachers or schools. Later in the same paragraph he talks about research into a couple of pretty heavy fields, and lists no degrees or credentials. People that tend to be experts in criminology and psychology are normally doctors. Legal use of force? Tend to be lawyers. Id have to look around the site more, but this smells like fish.

    Marc MacYoung is the anti-bullshit in martial arts. His ranking in the arts is irrelevant to what he is doing.
