Osiris, I agree with you that sparring is a good idea.
But the end result of a serious unarmed fight is the same as a knife fight. You can get your head stomped in. I watch tons of videos online of street fights and they always kick the guys head after he is out cold. It's still not as dangerous as a knife fight, but doesn't mean people shouldn't spar.

I mean just think about it. Running away can save you from a knife fight. It can also save you from a fist fight.
Running does not mean we should throw out fist sparring or knife sparring. Fighting back has it's place.
I'm not trying to sound like some weapons expert or anything. This is just the logical thinking that goes on in my head as a result of years of rigorous point sparring.
I should have just joined the track team.
Unarmed sparring techniques and positions translate to a real scenario whether spontaneous self-defence or idiotic parking lot squaredancing between a couple of thugs. This kind of knife sparring does not translate to mutual knife combat because no such thing exists, except for when two players get caught reloading in a game of Counter-Strike.

Lot's of people carry knives. It's not totally unrealistic. I actually know a guy who carries a samurai sword in his car. He may not be the smartest person or a trained sword fighter, but all those LARP sword fighters are still a dangerous threat to society. I read a story in south africa where a guy fought off 3 car jackers with a sword. 2 of the jackers died. Also a gorilla in a zoo beat a gun wielding thief who was trying to hide in the zoo. The gorilla was shot, but it still managed to disarm the gun, and pin the attacker against a wall till police arrived. This gorilla is now famous and hailed as a hero of justice.
Stuff like this doens't happen often, but it does happen.

22 Mott Street, go upstairs to the red door and knock. Ask anyone there about me. 13 - 17 Pell Street, NYC, same deal as above but there is no red door to pass through.

Any more questions or do you have sufficient homework for the time being?
You are engaging in the same fallacy I noted in my post ... you know where to find BJJ people and therefore in order for anyone or anything to "qualify" as relevant and valid it must fit the same model.
For all the bullshit tippy typpy crap the BJJ'ers engage in ... for all their efforts to suss a "no one" ... not a single one does what it is they claim to do the most ... do it for real.
I'm very much real ... not a creation of the Net ... and for some reason the simple, direct, real solution of meeting me cannot be done by the wannabe real deal shitrats. Why?
Collectively, what the majority of posters who attempt to bring me down to their level ... just below whale **** on the bottom of the ocean ... "know" about FIGHTING through personal experience wouldn't fill a thimble. Idiotic Children playing with dangerous things.
The FACTS are clear ... mouth boxers the lot of you. Too damned chickenshit scared to actually face one, old, Man. Pretty much says it all about you Knobjockeys.
You're full of **** Osissyis ... plenty of peeps knife fight and in several parts of the World it's an accpetable way to settle disputes. Oh ... wait ... BJJ doesn't knife fight so it can't be real.

You are a pus pocket in need of being lanced ... and I'm just the one to make that cut.
