Default Bringing My Knife to The Gun Fight

You have all heard ,and joked about bringing a knife to a gunfight right ?
The standard line is if a guy pulls a knife on me i would shoot him! Well that might be easier said than done ! I found this utube video to be very interesting and quite informative.


Legendary Eskrima martial artist Dan Inosanto demonstrates how dangerous an attacker with a knife can be to a police officer inside of 21ft. This can also be useful information for citizens who can legally carry a concealed weapon.

Too close - don't underestimate the knife - YouTube

Eskrima is a particularly brutal martial art...

Only 12 places of the human body are targets... All of these are either "kill spots" or incapacitaing spots to set up for the kill...

If the person perfoming the attack chooses to leave you alive... consider yourself lucky...

Hands, staffs, knives, swords...All are lethal weapons in eskrima...

Glad I got the basics from one badass biker called "Unicorn" as a teen...

Eskrima and Krav Maga are the 2 most lethal martial arts. Both practice full contact. Americanized martial arts like the McDonald's franchise Tae Kwon are for exercise and kids to earn some trophies....Don't tell Chuck Norris I said that.


As an adult, if you want exercise and learn about rolling on the ground Brazillian jiu jitsu is great. If I could afford to do BJJ again, I would in a heartbeat strictly for the conditioning exercise. Knees are getting too bad to roll anymore in my old age.

M, Not only "full contact" but both have the final ends to your threat in mind... Unlike most every other MA...

Exactly!!! Very brutal. Not just a punch of fancy punches and kicks.

This is all well and true. But not your average joe hoodlum. And if he does, hopefully you know how to fist fight.
But defineatly something to keep in mind.

I know someone that would still tell me they are quick enough to draw an IWB after seeing this video.
