    OMG! I didn't see the knife. That increases this pic's distaster rating tenfold.

    If a lock like that is held tightly, it's difficult to bring your other hand across your body to stab from that position. Unfortunately for the guy in that pic, it looks like a weak 5 year old could break his lock.

    The quality of the lock is not the problem. The problem is that even if you figure out how to crank it completely and pop the guy's shoulder/elbow/wrist (and I don't see how you can find the leverage to do this), the knife wielder is still holding a knife freely with his other hand.

    The stupid part of this is the guy holding the lock has a clear line to run away. If there ever was an historical purpose for this maneuver, this one was probably originally meant for military personal to escape captivity. I'll put money on the fact they're learning it like it's "self defense." If that's true, IT IS NOT SELF DEFENSE! In a civilian setting, they're teaching people how to become fugitives.

    It's the way the body falls - when the "locked" elbow is in that position it's difficult to get the knife arm across your own body to do any damage. Try it with a partner. I do agree that it's a shitty idea for the situation presented in the pic.

    I call bullshido. In that picture and in that situation, you aren't even controlling the elbow of the locked side. All the guy has to do is spin and now you've pissed him off. He might be down, but he's now slicing your achilles and you royally fucked your only real escape.

    And why is it that you've allow him to restrain you with your arms behind your back in the first place and it just so happens he's holding you in a handcuffed come-along in preparartion to cuff the other hand? And why would he be holding a knife then (and cuffing you standing), anyway? :rolleyes: And, if he grabbed your right wrist while facing you holding a knife, he's an idiot, but you're an even bigger uber-idiot for spinning away from the uncontrolled knife hand to get him into that position.

    The response is not the shitty idea. The entire scenario is a LARP fantasy cesspool.
