    And of course Bollywood has the lock on the very best of the best.

    Thank you for kind reply Juggernoob, I appreciate your candor. I must assume that you meant why is anyone still teaching striking in a competitive style sense.....I am no expert by any means, but isn't striking some of the basic fundamentals of all fighting? I know that clench and control is definitely a preferable style of combat, but you do gotta rattle someones skull a few times or knock some wind out of them before you go to ground and pounding them don't you? It makes it easier doesn't it? I'm not saying go for the b movie portrayed combat head kick, just some striking to begin. And speaking of lacking in experience. Does anyone know of a good, totally Coda unrelated school in the Stillwater area? Unfortunately, I know that guy and I can personally attest that he is a total wash. Thanks all.

    all a deviation from the OP i believe,
    in a knife situation i would want to be able to seize/control more than strike unless you can just knock the bugger out which cant usually be garanteed
    There is no good place to get cut to "minimize damage" if someone is armed with a knife, with a decent edge, and is attacking you with even mild force and violence you are going to end up cut badly, even across the back of your hand or arms you are going to loose blood, feeling, and probably fingers, worse still, you are most likely not going to get cut, you are gonna get stabbed, and there are even less areas to get stabbed in that are "good" than to get cut in

    I'm just glad an expert finally showed up!

    i dont remember using the word "good", i used the phrase "damage limitation" though.
    personally i would prefer an assailant broke the tip off their knife in my ulna than have them poke me in the liver with it.
