    In his front hand, so, you know, he can attack with it.

    Yeah, it'd give him range, and the like. I just thought the idea was to use the front hand as a guard of sorts, or a way to trap defences, or to keep the knife from being taken by using quick thrusts that are then withdrawn...

    Thinking about it, I suppose you could do exactly the same thing with it in your front hand.

    It also works equally well against a staff, stick, sword, gun and an empty-handed opponent. In other words, it is the perfect technique.

    OK. In other words, this guy has no idea? Having said this, I would assume most knife carriers have no idea (but they still put holes in people). Still, if I were a sensei training knife defences on a regular basis (which I'm not, quite obviously), I guess I'd hook up with a local Kali school, or some such thing.

    All I can say is that the "attacker" was not attacking with conviction. I couldn't watch more than a few moments of that, but that clusterfuck did not simulate even "stay off the head" knife SPARRING, let alone a real confrontation.

    The rest of the video was identical - it got more and more absurd, precisely because it didn't change.

    Would you recommend Kali for knife fighting techniques? I'm pretty sure it has a strong presence in Australia, along with Arnis. I think we did a seminar with Remy Presas once.

    Kali, yes. Any decently taught FMA for weapons. Make sure it's not all energy drills though, and that you actually spar.

    Ok - thanks. Maybe these chaps at Rounin Goju should also trundle along to their local FMA school.
