EMPTY HAND VS BLADE ATTACKS
A blade or edged weapon is the most complex and intricate weapon that one can face! Slashes are stabs with a blade will most likely be fatal & the margin for error & surviving is absolute minimum. It is extremely different to fighting. The results can be determined by millimetres & milliseconds. The human body has 7 anatomical targets that a blade can cause severe outcomes to - distraction targets, vascular, nervous system, structural, organs, oxygen and muscular. The video series cover the correct structures, pressures, movements and angles to survive. Again, it is completely different to empty hand fighting!
With a hold up, if you seriously think your life is in jeopardy, or you may need to act immediately because a loved one is being taken away or being attacked for example.
Also you definitely do not want to be taken away to a second location, most likely you won't be coming back!
The video series demonstrate the various ways to survive a hold up from all different angles - Front, Side and Rear.
One reason why we can counter a hold up is that the blade is stationary and you know exactly where it is. Another proven fact is if you move first at close range, especially with a distraction, you have the advantage.
Disarms are an extremely opportunistic and dangerous! You should never attempt any disarms, without seriously diminishing the attacker first. Circumstances will dictate the opportunity, but there are so many things that can go wrong. Loss of motor skills through fear & adrenalin, slippery with blood, attackers is too strong, no knowledge of previous congruent training etc.
The video series demonstrates how it is possible to achieve disarms with utilising the environment, smashing it out of their hand and the necessary grips required to be able to safely release or leverage a blade out of an attackers hand. The empty hand vs blade videos give you a great insight how to get to a possible position to have that opportunity.
To fully understand how to survive against a blade, I believe you must know how to train with a blade & learn all the different parts of a blade & the devastation of what a blade can do to you! Blade work can be brutally simple and infinitely complex. If you are prioritising &/or framing for a specific scenario it's easy to learn and own a simple effective mindset & a set of skills in a short period of time. A few simple concepts can make you dangerous, but to dominate the chaos of edged weapon attacks, that's a lifetime! It is a commitment or more accurately an obsession. “A big difference between an edge weapon system & edge weapon framework”. This video series demonstrates the core fundamentals required to prepare you for the properties of a blade - striking & countering. Utilising peripheral vision and how to start becoming subconsciously competent. This is a great start but it takes serious amount of committed training to get the real life skills.
