Keenan doing some rounds in street wear, light strikes. Pretty cool to see.
That was great to see
Particularly how the t shirts held up
Yeah it's pretty cool. He got a collar choke with the hoodie at the start too. Was really interesting to watch. Would be cool to do this as like an end-of-year thing.
Yeah things like coats and hoodies are pretty straightforward but I’ve not experimented that much with t shirts because it trashes them
Gonna do more of that when things are back to normal
Why choke someone with their clothes, when you could whip your hoodie off and choke them with that?! Phenomenal!
I saw some other video that tested the durability of various clothing against collar chokes, quite interesting.
If you mess around with t shirt chokes you find two things
1) t shirt seams are strong and much more durable than you think
2) the chokes go on so much quicker
Doing judo throws with hoodies and jumpers also makes for.fun
And leave some nasty fabric burns too
Keenan doing the same with sharpies
Running away unless you have lots of space doesn't work,
staying at distance doesn't work,
Controlling the arm with space doesn't work
Which leaves you with what option...
Answers below please
Basically even with warning,a a small knife and unrealistic attacks at times they still got killed
Having great cardio, as well as being Able to hit people really hard, and a decent level of Greco/clinch training?
Edit, not putting yourself in risky situations to begin with?
Good cardio sounds like a good plan but
If we look at the statistics of attacks when people study them we see (according to one study of over 150 attacks caught on camera,)
In over 80% of the cases the knifes hidden until it's used
In over 70% of cases the knife only comes out within 3 feet of the defender
Makes running hard
Hitting really hard sounds good as well but
In over 70% of the same study the attacker lead with the open hand normally as a barrier or frame making hitting them hard difficult
So we are down to good Greco but if controlling at distance doesn't work (for two reasons one the hand can get free or two they can simply swap grips) what's the best cause of action ?
Edit I agree totally with the whole not being there but more and more attacks seem to be in normal every day situations , people carry knifes more often so tend to come out in every day places more
Ps good to see you posting again
Cheers man, it makes me feel useful whilst sweating on a couch!
In all fairness they are also not striking.
Was going to type the best way I feel to deal with all the above but this is probably the best I have seen anywhere on how to deal with the common stab,
and the shield and stab
the only thing missing is the overhand stab but his video series covers that too
If you watch alot of knife fight videos there isn't that much striking and if there is there some harrowing footage our there of people striking in what they thought was a boxing match and then realising they have been stabbed and dying
Bottom line is I suppose watch out for the tell tell signs of someone carrying a knife,
Hannibal asked me to watch this video once and then comment on it.
I watched it on my phone, but missed the scissors.
Initially I thought the attack could have been avoided, but once the scissors were pointed out to me it changed everything.
I've done SIM day with John Titchen and seen things kick off massively before someone shouts "knife".
I think we are fairly ignorant of weapons when it comes to our awareness.
I'm not insinuating that they would fair better but as they are starting at a striking range it's better to at least have the option to strike if nothing else than to keep the person away.
Satisfaction : bjj
Suprise knife attack after the main fight.
Edit, it's a link to a video on Reddit, can't find it on YouTube.
