wrong info alert!!!
There is some misunderstanding about projectiles in Sayoc on this thread... First Chris has said that in Sayoc you never throw without the intention of sticking the blade in them... Atenza guys do occasionally throw just to distract BUT... projectiles in this family of FMA, Kali are designed to give you distance.
The theory goes like this: because distance is a primary advantage, a projetile is a way to take a weapon with no distance and create distance.
here is an example from Atenza Kali: in one of their forms (templates) you back up and then cut in using the distance of a medium length blade... you are succesful because your length is greater than the feeder's length of the weapon, so naturally your cut arrives and his does not... NOW you can do the same form (evolve it) but instead of a medium length blade you move the same way and throw a small blade per each cut you would do with the medium blade.
Actually like a lot of stuff I have seen in the Sayoc, this makes a lot of sense... these guys put together good material and their pedogogy is solid. Distance is indeed a fundamental and primary advantage with weapons. and projectiles are indeed a way of fascimilating distance when necessary.This thread never was a high quality conversation - My friend vern Gilbert on the William Acquier thread.

An alternative view:
"Knife throwing can be largely discounted as a practical means of combat. There are few persons who can pick up a knife, throw it at a moving object at an unknown distance, and hit a vital spot. In the main, knife throwing is an art relegated to vaudeville and stage, because, to throw a knife properly, the exact distance from the thrower to the target must be known. Since the knife turns end over end as it travels through the air, the thrower must know the exact distance. He must be able to control the number of turns the knife makes, so that it will hit the target point first.
There are, indeed, methods of knife throwing, at close ranges, without the blade turning end over end in the air; but considering the movement of the target, varying distances, heavy clothing, and the fact that if you miss you are without a weapon, knlfe throwing is not practical as a means of attack."
Col. Rex Applegate (1976), Kill or Get Killed.
Whilst carrying multiple blades may negate the last criticism, it seems that any good effect of using a projectile could be achieved with almost any object (glass, ashtray, hat etc.) as one cannot depend on damage being caused by a thrown knife.
Carrying multiple blades that have any kind of aerodynamic qualities is problematic from a legal perspective as well. It would be hard enough to explain away one such weapon; walking around like Danny Trejo in Desperado would cause most cops, prosecutors and juries to file you firmly under "dangerous psychopath who belongs in prison".

(You don't still have that tape of us do you?)
Thanks for the explanation. I guess i'm just too used to crappy posts in the wrong place. Now I know to check the date.

DuckofDeath Take a break from trolling MABS. Next one will be longer. That's what she said.
That's what happened to the last person who screwed around in MABS.
