One instructor of martial arts tested out a new karambit and it was a really amazing thing. It is very sharp and can penetrate things very easily. It can be used in a self defense situation. It is very sharp and will go very deep into the object it hits. It should be used by someone who is trained.

Click to share this post.

When someone swears into the military to protect their country they usually go away for six weeks or more of hard core basic training. This basic training tests your mental and physically capability. The hardest branch of the military in my opinion is the Navy Seals. The seals go through more strenuous basic training than all of the other branches. The two SEALs in the video are describing what it was like to participate in the combative training.

Key Takeaways:

  • It is an interview done by the reallomndonacademy.com with a Seal. The interview is about how this Seal was introduced to the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. The Seals explains that he found out about the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu when he was nineteen years old, and how powerful he thought the technique was.
  • The video is about this Seal who learned Jiu-Jitsu when he was about nineteen years ago. During Seal training, he was subjugated and choked by this fifty-year-old guy, the trainer.
  • This video is a short video of an interview of this Seal who finds the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to be a powerful battle technique. The full video can be found at reallondonacademy.com.

Click to share this post.

Street Ezkrima edged weapons training is a very cool thing. Knife training is the heart of the curriculum in this system. There are so many nuances to this incredible form of combat and a lot of people will have a lot to learn studying it. The knife training will have a practical component because people do not carry swords on the street, but they do carry knives.

Key Takeaways:

  • Filipino martial arts training embodies both empty hand and edged weapon techniques.
  • For the purpose of easy visibility and explaining philosophy, bolo and machete knifes can be used to demonstrate techniques of Filipino martial arts, edged weapon training.
  • However, Filipino martial arts training is meant to be relevant in today’s world and is therefore meant to be useful against street knives and even guns.

“Although we have put up a lot of videos on bolo or machete type swords for quite some time already and have expounded most of our principles and philosophies using these weapons, the knife which we seldom put up is still the very center of our training regimen along with our empty hand fighting.”

Click to share this post.

Learning a self defense method is never an easy task because it take time to develop the skills. First it begins with your mentality and always thinking one step ahead of your opponent, giving you the advantage. This video shows a different fighting technic called Chalk Sparring. This is when you are fighting with a tiny blade of some sort and you are going up against the partner with the blade in the exercise.

Key Takeaways:

  • A technique called chalk sparring can be used in Filipino martial arts training.
  • The chalk stands in for a small knife, used in a combat situation, such as a penknife, or box cutter.
  • The technique is useful for simulating how close it may be necessary to get to an armed opponent.

“It’s done with the view of using a small blade, or more so going up against someone with a small blade.”

TACTICAL SELF DEFENSE

Click to share this post.

One-on-one self defense is challenging enough. However, Abenir Kalis training also considers the possibility of multi-person attacks. Enactments, involving several people, are incorporated into training sessions, including weaponry, such as knives and sticks. A useful tactic to employ in multiple person attacks is that of geometry. Try to envision the battle field as a triangle with yourself as the peak point. If possible, place your opponents as close to equidistant as you can, and at either base point of the triangle, so you can watch them easily and then maneuver to pick them off.

Key Takeaways:

  • Though most people would just use instinct and reaction time to survive. We believe considering your location in relation to your opponents is also essential.
  • Then choose a side either left or right to run to to create that triangle distance even if they give chase they will align in a triangle if you run to one side.
  • The idea is just survive not conquer. If you try to conquer in this scenario you are likely gonna get injured or die in the process. Survive long enough to create space for a hasty retreat.

“I myself have tried these tactics with some level of success, by success I mean I was able to survive, not win against my opponents.”
