Drawpoint DVD 2: Reverse-Grip Knife Fighting Fundamentals with James Keating
Focusing on the edge rather than the point, Keating shows you how to perform the cover and slash drill: the fundamental combat drill every competent edged-weapon fighter needs to know. With his typical attention to detail, he teaches rapid knife deployment and maximum efficiency in close-quarter combat, demonstrating how this drill and the applications drawn from it can defend against both high-line and low-line attacks, how you can perform less-lethal attacks with the blade, lightning-quick drawing and cutting attacks, and more. Keating also teaches you to execute the drill with a knife in each hand, turning you into that most lethal of adversaries: the ambidextrous fighter.
And even if you don't have a knife, the empty-hand applications taught in this video will have you destroying your assailant's attacking limbs in no time, allowing you to win the fight even when you're behind the curve. For information purposes only.
