Re: Knife Work is Messy


Great post Dave and yes, it’s nasty business and like most stuff in the martial arts world is shrouded in fantasy.
I have literally stood in a lot of “knife fighting” classes that have been more liked dancing than the visceral and septic reality of stabbing another human being.

The assume you’re just going to stab someone, withdraw the knife and do it again and again.

They also assume that when you stab someone they will stop fighting and just fall over.

As you have witnessed the opposite is true.

To stab someone takes the most nerve and commitment of all the aspects of self defense.

It’s close, personal and messy.
