    Agin thats if you carry. I carry day in day out add on i also carry a sidearm. i am not going to carry a fixed blade exspechialy not while wearing slacks meeting with a client. so a folder with built in pocket clip is perfect for me and for alot of other peopl as well. i carry a benchmade 3.5" blade folder and alot of others carry similar blades as tools and self defence tool. Inclination is only a part of it. don't forget what works with mode of dress. again my point is i carry a fixed blade so thats what i would like to train in useing.

    Ok nothing unreasonable about that line of reasoning.... but there is no reason why a folded knfe has to be carried for purposes of concealment or otherwise. It is a preferance (one which I don't get). When you draw a jointed knife you have to open it on the draw instead of cutting on the draw. But yeah if you train with that weapon of course you carry it. But that is another issue... I guess I was hoping somoene who prefers a folded blade could give me a reason why they might prefer it from a purely combat orientd perspective. Your point about accesorizing and its role in concealment is duly noted.

    I won't comment on Janich's videos either way becasue I don't have videos up and it would be discourteous to make a pointed comment (pardon the oun haha) without giving someone the opportunity to do likewise. Suffice to say that there certainly does not seem a reason to accuse the man of Bullshido. He explains himself clearly and articulately and whether you agree with his approach or not he is not being hyperbolic, misleading, or making promises that are unrealistic.


    My other comments are points related to technical matters so bear no relevance to the issue of Bullshido. I would like to raise them but I wouldn't want them to be confused with an accusation of bad teaching, or misleading claims.

    ysc, that wasn't nice of you. Thread necromancy for online verbal masturbation(TM) is a no-no, but Steve0281 here came to Bullshido as somebody who knows the person that happens to be the topics of this thread. Personal experience with the topic is valued higher here than the date on the last post in the thread, if I'm not mistaken...

    Knives are standard accessories with a kilt.
    Welcome, Steve, it's very good to have somebody with experience on here. Feel free to elaborate some more on the way Mr. Janich trains, we're very interested.

    I also wear a knife almost anywhere I go (gotta take it off when attending press conferences at the presidential palace and so on - security folks already know me... ;-) ). And I second Mr. Gwinn's earlier notion regarding the Janich/Spyderco cooperation.

    Folks at Spyderco might be wrong from time to time, but most of the time they are not, that's why they're on top of modern quality (folder)knife making.

    Mad Dog? Is that you?

    People train with folders for the same reason people train with handguns even though long arms exist: because the weapon you're actually carrying is more important than the uber-weapon you left at home.

    I leave the Odachi at home as well unless I simply know that trouble is expected! So I am guessing that people have decided that if you have to conceal a bade, a folder is the de facto weapon of choice.

    Tonuzaba. Thank you for being cordial. Like I said, I have known Mike for nearly thirty years. He taught me how to make blowguns and to understand knives. His background in his bio is completely accurate. I have seen him on television at least twice (Nightline and Believe It or Not). Additionally he has testified before the US Congress on the efforts of locating POW's and/or remains in Vietnam. He has made numerous trips to Vietnam. Mike has long been a knife specialist. He taught me more about knives than I had imagined that there was to know. He makes a supreme effort to know the weapon and its construction, to include the molecular design of the metal and handle materials, and the methods that they are used inside and out. He has an affinity for the Filipino methods and bases his method upon them. Mike is a very thorough student of everything that he delves into. He loves knives and I know that there is little that he does not know about them and their methods of usage. When my daughter is old enough I will send her to him for instruction.

    If the thread is gonna be necro'd, let's at least make it substantive. I found two youtube videos on him. I'm not qualified to appraise his knife skills, so I'll leave that up to the bullies. I will say a hearty WTF to "pork man" in the first vid. Is that a common knife training implement? A hank of pork? Perhaps _ing _un needs to implement the pork dummy...

    to da OP

    the main martial arts with knives obvious are the pinoy ones, well actually the most famous

    as for credibility - its hard to find credibility in knife fighting, because if they were for real they would probably be in jail for murder

    my advice is ask someone in prison - they shiv each other by any means, and if it works in the bing, it will work on the street
