1. Many popularly taught knife methodologies ignore the forensic reality of violence and look like dancing.
  2. Many popularly taught knife methodologies ignore the ugly reality of what knives can actually do to your body (just go to Google images and put in "knife wounds". Now that is what you have to take into account when choosing how to train).

From the military to civilians and even the police-- knife, gun and stick fighting is often taught unrealistically. Based on the brutal, bloody, forensic homicide research of former detective John Perkins plus Perkins' over 100 seriously violent arrests, this comprehensive 4 part DVD series separates film fantasy from forensic fact and dojo delusions from real combat.

  • The keys to achieving effective stopping power with a knife or other sharp object. (Hint: one word that begins with a "B".) This concept alone can clear up many of the misconceptions many people hold regarding knife combat.
  • Pros and cons of various types of knives and carry methods, and implications and tactics for access while under attack.
  • GC-modified Native American/West Virginia Hill Country attacking methods using the knife. Some of the most aggressive and brutal stuff you've ever seen. And that's before it even goes to the ground. "Knife sparring" training drills for improving reflexes, footwork and other attributes.
  • Other drills that teach you to use a knife effectively in the midst of chaos.
  • How the Guided Chaos principles enhance use of the knife.
