Modern Knives #10 Fire & Steel - Gun & Knife Combat

Jim Keating leads off MK#10 teaching us about the Pistol & Walking Cane as a combination.  You'll learn several ways to instantly turn your pistol into a rifle for a long-range steady shot as well as a series of last-resort handgun and walking cane close-combat techniques.  If you carry a cane and handgun together for any reason (while hiking in the woods, for urban defense, or because you might simply need a cane to get around and you exercise your legal 2nd Amendment Rights) then you should know these old-timer's ticks!


Next, Laci Szabo takes you to the shooting range for a one-on-one lesson in handgun marksmanship.  Using both dry-fire and live-fire exercises Laci gives you some great drills to improve your sighted shooting.  Plus learn how to make your own metal target that's both durable and easy to transport.

Then Pete Kautz shares a fast paced exploration of the Cinco Teros (5 Strikes) style of knife work.  You've seen the classical version of the Cinco Teros via the Sword & Dagger on MK#1: Spanish Fighting Arts, well here we re-translate it through the knife in both forward and reverse grip and the empty hands vs. the knife mode.  Each evolution develops more skills from the same core of actions, adding depth of understanding and highlighting some of the best aspects of the Filipino knife arts including crossing, passing, chaining, and tying in only 5 base techniques.  Quick to learn, versatile, and effective!

Musical Guest Loathsome Ritual lend a torrent of musical frenzy to the mix, recorded live at a recent show.
