    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    "Dirty Fighting" by Lt. David W. Morrah jr available through the week

    Pete Kautz of Alliance Martial Arts is hosting a free download for this great old book:
    http://www.alliancemartialarts.com/weeklyspecial.htm

    As an artist, I really like the illustration style throughout the book (especially the anatomy chart ones). Apparently this manual has more of a catch wresting influence than some of the other WW2 combatives manuals. I kinda study these old manuals as a hobby, and this is one that I hadn't heard of but have enjoyed reading this week.

    There's a lot more grappling technique and emphasis in this one than the other WW2 combatives manuals out there. While most of them advocate striking to sensitive areas until they fall then stomping them out, this one takes the approach that hitting those points is difficult with an upright resisting opponent, so you should put them on the ground first.

    Yeah, this one looks to have some pretty good techniques for the time. It is actually better than some stuff that is out today! I especially like the pictures. Like the one that looks like hitler. And the teeth on the other one!!

    Why was there so much emphasis on using the knife-hand for striking during WWII? Wasn't boxing still popular?

    A number of the authors spoke highly of boxing, but I guess the idea was to teach the most destructive skills in the shortest time, and developing the correct technique to punch with the fist was thought to take too much time. They were also considering bareknuckle strikes against a guy with various clothes and armor. I think the edge of hand strike is a pretty nifty thing to have in the arsenal and I train them on a number of mediums. I even throw them into the sparring mix, but obviously they have to be used a little differently. I wonder if the shuto will ever end up in MMA.

    It also occurs to me that in a lot of the manuals, the edge of the hand is also used as a fairly intuitive way to knock things out of the way, like an outstretched weapon arm, and this comes up fairly often in the context of the fighting they were envisioning (ie lots of hand weapons coming into play).

    I have a pretty funny story about the edge of the hand and WW2 combatives stuff, and it happened earlier today. I was at the DMV for some registration stuff, and I noticed that there was exactly 50 people who's numbers came up before mine. While waiting, I got my small laptop and was reading old pdfs. A cute little girl, looked about 5, started looking over my shoulder. I was going through Arwrology, and decided I should keep to text heavy pages so she wouldn't see a bunch of fighting pictures. Being a kid at the DMV, she gets antsy and starts pacing around and being a kid, and out of nowhere, she chops her dad in the throat and he gags a little, and she feels bad about it. She was so little it didn't do too much. I folded up my laptop and waited quietly.

    You remember what happened to a certain Greek Philosopher for corrupting the youth, right?

    (On the plus side, said philosopher could say, at least, that it was an "all natural" product. ;) )
