    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Wrestling with Knives (Avellan Vid)

    Hey guys! Today I'm going to teach you a position that is often overlooked in grappling and MMA. It was taught to me by an Olympic bronze medalist, and has become one of my go to takedowns from a clinch.

    It involves stabbing but we will be using a thumb-blade and not a real knife :)

    I don't click on spam. Upload the video here if you want it looked at.

    ummmm

    David Avellan is a very high level and accomplished grappler sharing techniques for free online.

    We are lucky to have him here

    It's not spam. Although this should be posted in the grappling forum, and it should have a sub title wrestling takedown technique so people who don't know who he is don't think it's some RSBD video about actually wrestling with knives.

    Yeah, I'm not questioning his credentials or abilities! And we have bjj black belts posting really good instructional videos for us to watch. But they upload them here.

    This post above is asking us to leave this site and go to his site to watch his stuff. How is that not spam? Can't you advertise on the site to do the same thing?

    I sense a semantic debate on the meaning of the word spam coming on.

    I just can't do it

    No debate. Spam or not, is it really that hard to upload the video here? Maybe it is, and I'm being to obstinate about the whole issue. If so, my bad.

    And just so you know, the reason I clicked onto the thread is because I actually do want to watch the video. I've done a bunch of knife training, and we train grapling and takedowns specifically with weapons in mind. I was curious if there was differences or not. Or even if I can add improvements to my own techniques.

    I just don't like diferting trafic to other sites. To be honest, this is the only martial arts site I frequent because most other piss me off when reading the comments.

    Yes, BJJ black belts post instructional videos here, but they are not world class grapplers.

    We tend to let world class athletes do whatever they want within reason, be they strikers or grapplers.
    Shut the hell up and train.

    My bad. I didn't do my research on who he was.

    I bow to the vets.

    Also, he's using the term "knives" as a hook. It's actually a body lock takedown that utilizes the thumb knuckle driving into the love handle area to break posture and finish the takedown.

    Ah! Well, I was way off, thus making an ass of myself.

    Sorry.
