I would be astounded and amazed to see someone elusive enough not to get cut in a knife fight. That's one half of the entire problem with knives, that one can reverse direction on a cut, or convert a cut to a stab or vice versa incredibly fast (the other half of the problem being that no wind-up or body commitment is necessary to make a stab or cut potentially lethal or life-changing).

I think the Cold Steel videos are usually pretty good. My aunt worked for Cold Steel, and she got me copies of the Warrior's Edge VHS series, Fighting with the Saber and Cutlass, and the Ron Balicki sarong DVD. Well made, good information, and Lynn bases his stuff on actual sparring (they like fencing masks and padded weapons).
