    Any good weapons programs out there?

    What are some good knife and weapon programs? I want real stuff where people actually spar and test what they know at full speed, not B.S..

    Thanks!

          For regular training, check out our local silat and kali/arnis/escrima places. Like any style the intensity varies with the instructor and students. Also places that have an association with the Dog Brothers should have contact and a no BS approach.

            If your looking for programs, like others have said:

            Sayok is good.
            Pekiti Tirsia Kali is good.
            Dog Brothers are ok. I haven't seen enough of their knife work to comment on that aspect.

            Basically you want to look for a place where they actively spar (typically using padded equipment or better yet limited bod armor). Talk to the instructor and ask his philosophy on weapons training. They should say "keeping it as simple as possible." And ask them about resistance training.

            If the responses sound good, and you dig the atmosphere, you've got a good place to study.

              Thanks for the responses guys. I'm out in the middle of nowhere, but I may be able to find something. I'm not looking to go crazy into it, just supplement a little.

              Anyone have any opinions of Mike janich? I here his tapes are worth it, but I don't know...

                Haven't seen it, not an expert in any case, but I want to believe Sal Glesser would not partner with Janich if he weren't the real deal.

                  Have not trained with Janich. Several of the guys I've been through other courses with think highly of him. It's a very stripped-down small blade oriented program.

                    Lightning Scientific Arnis/Leskas.

                    Sayas-Lastra Arnis.

                    Balintawak Arnis.

                    Outstanding systems that go at high intensity.
