Message from Artair in Cascadian Coffee Company #general
A bit of muay thai, and HEMA, if that counts. But, I need to do a lot more. Looking into MMA places.
My Dad teaches the Krav Maga classes here in Eugene when the owner is gone
Also, HEMA is fucking bad ass much respect
I used to take knife drills, you can get a lot of information on youtube.
Also, professor Blackwood, who is a blackbelt in several forms of martial arts, could really help you if you actually went to college.
You lazy SOB, take some initiative, you shouldn't need to ask for help! 😉
I'm just being salty 😃
Thanks. HEMA's probably not as combat-practical as knife things but it's fantastic exercise. And of course the historical bit
Pick up a Sparring knife bro (Sportsman warehouse, or just make one yourself), and watch the videos that are already on youtube, and practice with T.
Also, practicing with a heavier knife is an obvious way to get started.
I know that all sounds like bullshit, but I couldn't offer any better advice.
Practice basic stances, move your entire body around, most of all use your left hand plenty.
Hold the knife in your left hand in a reverse grip, and stab/chop through a descent sized tree trunk, circling around the trunk while you do so.
Once finished, do the same with your right hand.
Doesn't have to be a tree, just use anything laying around that's in great supply.
I know that sounds like bad advice, but I actually got that from a friend who used to be an officer in the Australian police force.
That's sort of just the bare bones minimum, but it's better than nothing.
uhh, Did I say something wrong guys? Room just got really silent.
Nah, you are good. Talking about training particularly for sport/exercise/self defense is encouraged.
I was eating dinner m8 and thanks, that's some good advice
No problem, just get a really heavy knife so the training is twice as hard as the actual thing.
We have knife here in the gym to practice knife fighting with
My Bowie weighs over a pound, and I frequently do that exercise. Now picture, what happens if I do (for self defense) have to stab someone with my glock, which weighs twice as much?
Also Austin, your switchblade is shit for combat I'm afraid.
I think just about all of us are into regular training/work our routines at this point. It is good to discuss what we do as motivation for each other, progress updates, and insight.
I mean if I couldnt kill someone with that and my training then they deserve to kill me. lmao
I don't need a 300$ knife, nor multiple knives in a street fight.
Well, it's a liner lock, if you stab someone you risk transmitting too much force into the tang of the blade, causing the lock to fold, possibly injuring yourself.
No, just get a fixed blade knife.
Or a normal priced knife with a lockback.
I don't think you know proper cuts, Artair..
When it comes to acutaly human bodies
I've studied it quite in depth.
It's not a mexican stab fight
I've acutally trained in depth.
The idea of training is 100% self defense. The discussion began with people's concern of being attacked by Antifa type terrorists. We need to be able to survive an attack (solo or in a group), so being physically and mentally prepared is mandatory.
