#Personal Defense #Combatives
The blade is one of the oldest tools man has created. Ranging from the ancient Samurai, medieval knights, to indigenous Amazonian tribes the blade has always been there in some form or fashion. In modern times where the idea of self-preservation is taboo and viewed highly uncivilized, how does one integrate the blade into an invaluable tool? The concept is fairly simple, utilize it with a point driven strategy. This will therefore allow you to look at anything in your environment with a point as a legitimate and lethal option. In the previous article I talked about stance and where/how to index the blade if at distance from your adversary. In this final piece, I will talk about effective targeting, movement and how/when to utilize an the actual edge of the blade to your advantage.
