If you have a tail made of straw, you'd better stay away from the fire
mi casa es su casa.
Our training videos are here if you wish to look.
You have been called out, you prove yourself. Any further posts or replies after this will be treated as as standdown and an admission that you cannot back up your claims.
:woo: I guess that means no video.
On your part, can't back up your claims can you?
Read your post. You're the one who offered a video. Let's see it.:woo:
I saved you the trouble and looked you up on youtube, simon.
Here's your knife play video:
Here's Pekiti Tirsia knife:
You're trying to play grab-ass with a knife, simon. It's not a damn lolly-pop you're trying to take away from a retarded child, it's suppose to be a knife. That kinda crap is going to get you killed, simon.
No need to thank me.
Not your video though is it.
A simple thank you would suffice, simon. Train correctly or don't train at all.
The shock knife is great but the downside is it is made from hard plastic so you cannot do percussion disarms becuase if the knife hits the floor it will break.
So why use it, if it will just create bad habits? :bang: Knife work is something you don't want to f#ck around with, my friend.
Really, well I never. That clip by the way was a bit of light relief taken during a seminar done by one of the top escrimadors in this country. The reason you don't see him in the clip is simply because of the shock knife, which you should not own in this country. The person running the seminar as well as being one of the top escrimadros in the country is a respected author, had lived and trained in the Phillipines and also trains with the Sayok's, so knows a bit about the knife.
Don't ask for his name as this is not his arguement, just wanted to make things clear.
Where is your video.
more Hero worship es no bueno
He can be the new president of the Philippines for all I care, simon. But if you move like that with a knife, you'll get killed quick.:bang:
Please study that Pekiti Tirsia video and search for other similar video. I beg you.:saz:
And please no more excuses. Quit while you're ahead.:bang:
I never used the shock knife, but when I was stateside, we did training with the no lie blades which are metal blades with the felt lining on the edges.. We would use chalk to mark the cuts and then would use theatrical blood to simulate the "getting wet" aspect of a slippery handle.. Then we would go for our disarms/defenses.. This would show you where you would get cut as a reference and at the same time would show you if the disarms actually worked or if the attacker was capable of handling the blade when it was "wet" and slippery from the theatrical blood.. This would see if the training was viable or just playing patty cake.
I am not familiar with that particular blade, but we do use a similar thing.
Like you say, you can chalk the edge and get an idea from that where any cuts would be. Also you can do proper disarms without the worry of breaking an expensive blade.
Don't waste your money on "shock" blades--a great example of a bad training tool

I remember watching this show and getting so mad at the criticism that was being spout by one of the fighters, that my wife got mad at me for yelling at him and stating that I would fight that cry baby. It really aggravated me when he started crying about the heat and humidity in the training area.. It sure points out the fact that most americans are so used to training in an airconditioned, mirror lined dojo, they never go out of the box and experience real environmental training where it can mean the difference between survival or total annilihation when the fecal matter hits the oscillating mechanism
But this is my opinion and my opinion only..
It is a great opinion! People need to get outside and train in natural environments in all weather conditions.
