Ok, Thank you. I was not sure if I had to clear it and it seems I need to find out before I mail myself my Cold Steel Khurkri Or even my Tiger Claw.
102  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Dog Dean "Kajukenbo" on: August 01, 2008, 11:30:52 AM
Thanks for the info Dean. I also have another question. In the Blade Wounds topic we talked shortly about you having a personal Cold Steel Knife on you. How would I get a Personal blade with me when I leave back in?
103  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Question On The Shivworks P'Kal on: July 30, 2008, 11:31:19 PM
I know how the knife works but is it practical? Is the inverted grip blade in realistic way to use a blade or is it a sales pitch.
104  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Question On The Shivworks P'Kal on: July 30, 2008, 10:31:09 PM
I know Crafty talked about it once on the Forum but I wanted to see what people thought of this knife.
105  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Blade Wounds by a Surgeon on: July 29, 2008, 05:35:00 PM
Dean, That looks like a big knife on your right hand side..Is that what I think it is or something else?

Yep, thats my cold steel fighter right behind Uncle Sams Berretta.

This is alittle off Topic Dean but when I head back how do I get Private Equipment like my Cold Steel Khukri from Point A to back in the Military and or my Cold Steel Kerambit? Do I check them in or?

Distance - know when your too close and can be hit.
Cover - find an Oh Shit/Default cover position.
Striking - practice slaps and elbows. No fists because it's good way to sprain a wrist or break a hand.  No kicks or knees because it means your only standing on one leg.

I have never broke anything in my hands hitting someone with fist...But I almost broke fingers slapping someone for a strike.
112  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Minimum Skills for h2h on: July 17, 2008, 08:03:36 PM
Being able to take a punch and a sucker punch. Knowing some ground work because almost every one on one fight I have been in seems to tumble to the ground and I would say knowing how to cover up and throw some good upper cuts and crosses. Most fight I have seen or been in are in pretty close quarters..Bars, Clubs and the like and most of these seem to start with a sucker punch or a punch from behind the head. Clinching is a must as well as being able to throw some good solid elbows and knees with the clinch.
113  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Kali Fitness on DVD ? on: July 16, 2008, 10:19:04 PM


I really hope they don't consider that "Working Out"
114  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Blade Wounds by a Surgeon on: July 16, 2008, 04:30:16 PM
So by what he is saying here in this post is that Slashing would be more effective or I am reading it wrong? Because he seems to say that stab wounds might or could make the important stuff bend and fold around the blade.
115  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Karambit Vs. straight blades on: July 14, 2008, 07:59:43 PM
So here is another question..Anyone here carry a fixed blade?
116  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Karambit Vs. straight blades on: July 11, 2008, 09:06:02 PM
@ sgtmac_46  - So I take it you carry a Karambit?
117  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Knife for Self Defense on: June 13, 2008, 10:46:49 AM
No Martial art is as old as the good old fashion art of running your ass off. Even with my Kali ninja powers, If confronted with a knife and I was by myself..I would make for the hills But you asked what I would use my Karambit against?  Anything that I felt was going to kill me...If they are swinging hands, then I am always up for a game of hands..but not with a knife.
118  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Knife for Self Defense on: June 12, 2008, 11:18:27 AM
David,
 You live in Ca? I live in CA and carrying a knife in CA is not illegal in CA but carrying a expandable baton is.

For a first line of defence I use my hands and claws, Second line is running my ass off and the third is a Emerson Karambit and that's only if the other person has a weapon or is going to kill me...
119  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Karambit Vs. straight blades on: June 05, 2008, 10:30:57 AM
hey maxx
i was using a mantis karambit, i am thinking of odering the Emerson. i will say one thing as far as damage the karambit  sure dishes it out but its not a tool that has the versatility as a regular knife if it is dropped or picked up off the ground

There are alot of things that I love about a Karambit and there are some things I just can't get over and it's the stabbing power of a Straight Blade. I feel that in alot of Tangles or situations a straight blade can do far more damage and you can even get a " One Hit Wonder" out of a Straight blade and what I mean about a one hit wonder is a good lucky shot to a vital organ.

Karambit it seem's that you only have two options for such a thing. 1 hitting the throat area and 2 slash the lower belly open. I do practice some stabbing motion but I know that you can only use so much of the tip to stab with but it is a stab.

I don't know, Can you Enlighten me on it's use or reccommend a good read on Karambit ? My Karambit skills are limited to Kali pattern strikes and basic Silat skills. I am currently trying to get over to pasadena to train alittle with the FCS guys. They told me that they don't really use all the flashy stuff that Ray uses but their Curriculum for blade is with the Karambit.

Awhile back I mentioned I had purchased the Cold steel Tiger Claw Karambit. Has anyone had a chance to see it or hold this?



"NOTE" Thought I would throw this up. There is a really great guy out there who ships fast and makes custom trainers. I ordered a Custom Karambit Trainer modeled off the Emerson Combat Karambit. He ships fast and is a awesome guy. He can also make you any custom trainer you want with just a outline of the item

Here is the link to his shop    http://www.normstrainingblades.com/Training%20Knives.htm#Karambit_Model_3

Next is a great site to get a good read out of about Karambits     http://www.karambit.com/
120  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Karambit Vs. straight blades on: June 04, 2008, 05:26:44 PM
i was just playing on some tires 2 min ago for the hell of it i took a small mantis karambit to the tire, i thought i might get a few larger deeper slices through the tire because of the karambit angle blade, the karambit not only cut deeper i cut thorough the tire walls however i did take the knife and hit the back of the blade and it failed this could be because it is a inferior lock,  have any of you had problems with the emerson lock

What were you using to cut though the tire? A emerson Knife or Emerson Karambit?

I only have one Emerson item and its the Emerson Karambit and I have never seen the lock fail but I do know if you write emerson and tell him about this he will replace the item from what I have been told.
121  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Karambit Vs. straight blades on: June 04, 2008, 03:40:07 PM
Maxx,
Just to be clear, as I noted in my original post, it was a slash across the person's body and I'll add that he was using a standard forward-grip with his right side.  This person has been doing "security" work in South America, mainly Nicaragua, Guatemala and El Salvador and in his 20+ years of being employed in this fashion, he's had used knives including karambits before. 

The conversation was struck up by him simply asking if I'm interested in what happens when you're actually cutting through a human body.  He asked if I'm doing any training to prepare for that.  I thought that maybe I had been but as we talked more, I realized that what he was talking about was different than anything that was in my current training regimen - as I type this, I realize that I haven't done the tire stuff in a while...

It's been years since we've talked about it but I do remember him saying that the depth or amount of penetration becomes more critical especially when you're cutting on areas where you can catch something - like the ribs.  I don't recall him noting that the tires neccesarily built any "wrist strength" but that it was a more general mental & physical familiarity with having the blade catch at undetermined spots within the cut.

**note**the first time I tried this, I ruined the cutting-edge of my karambit = REASON - radial tire undecided



I practice straight blade stuff on tires both standing and on the ground but I have not worked any Karambit stuff on a tire. I do have a Emerson Combat Karambit that I do sometimes carry but I mostly have been carrying my Cold Steel Recon 1 Folding tanto.

Did your mentor tell you if the slashing effects of the Karambit made the attacker stop his attack?
122  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Does Anyone Teach MCMAP on the outside? on: June 04, 2008, 11:01:27 AM

123  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Karambit Vs. straight blades on: June 04, 2008, 10:35:58 AM
@ kumurick - So Your mentor hit someone with a Karambit and it almost broke his wrist? Was this something he found to change after he started working on the tires with it? Does he find that he has more wrist power?

maija-
  Sir,  I must agree with what you say in regards to how you train and what you train for.  However, as I mentioned before, we train in a different manner for different situations.  Being a Combat Art as opposed to a Martial Art, we are not training civilians for encounters on the street with someone needing your wallet for their next fix/hit/dose/etc-we are trying to improve the training of Soldiers (and the like) to better survive in a war-zone or similar situation.  We do not at this time even have a civilian curriculum (although we are working on one).  I understand that most anyone that survives employment which takes them in to the line of fire will eventually return to society and take their training with them.  At that point, life after the encounter matters quite a bit.  We are not training, or training people, with that consideration at this point in time.  When we finalize our civilian curriculum, there will be a far different focus on the training and very different approaches to situations than those we teach now.  That is why I had said what I said about why we do and do not focus on certain social aspects of violent encounters.
  Have a great day, train hard and stay safe,
        Scott/Emir,Pencak Silat Sharaf

As a Ex- Soldier, I want to know what you consider teaching to survive in a Combat zone? From your Title it seems silat?  How would Silat help Soliders survive in a Combat War zone?  If that's what you are teaching soldiers..

http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20080529/sc_nm/brazil_tribe_dc



RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters) - Amazon Indians from one of the world's last uncontacted tribes have been photographed from the air, with striking images released on Thursday showing them painted bright red and brandishing bows and arrows.

ADVERTISEMENT
 
The photographs of the tribe near the border between Brazil and Peru are rare evidence that such groups exist. A Brazilian official involved in the expedition said many of them are in increasing danger from illegal logging.

"What is happening in this region is a monumental crime against the natural world, the tribes, the fauna and is further testimony to the complete irrationality with which we, the 'civilized' ones, treat the world," Jose Carlos Meirelles was quoted as saying in a statement by the Survival International group.

One of the pictures, which can be seen on Survival International's Web site (http://www.survival-international.org), shows two Indian men covered in bright red pigment poised to fire arrows at the aircraft while another Indian looks on.

Another photo shows about 15 Indians near thatched huts, some of them also preparing to fire arrows at the aircraft.

"The world needs to wake up to this, and ensure that their territory is protected in accordance with international law. Otherwise, they will soon be made extinct," said Stephen Corry, the director of Survival International, which supports tribal people around the world.

Of more than 100 uncontacted tribes worldwide, more than half live in either Brazil or Peru, Survival International says. It says all are in grave danger of being forced off their land, killed and ravaged by new diseases.

Tom,
 I never said anything about his contributions to the Martial Arts. I was pointing out that in my search to find out more about the name ( That was the first time I ever heard the name) I came across to many sites that pointed out that his military service with the Ghurkas was fraud.

If he did or did not serve or was using that to publish his art is beyond my Knowledge. Like I said..It was the first time I have heard the name. I don't know anything of the man except 1) He teaches Ghurkas Comabt methods 2) May have been or may have not been a Ghurka 3) I now know he has a fair amount of Dog Brother Affilation.
130  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Ghurkas in Iraq? and anyone know what system of Hand To Hand they use? on: May 29, 2008, 11:00:02 AM
Everything I found on Dr. Gyi is not good. Several websites list him as a fraud and he never served with the Ghurkas or was a p.o.w
I didnt get to deep into what the websites are saying but I got the point of several of them.

Have you looked into this? Have you found them to be rumors or real?

Marc Denny had put up a link for me to offer to my friend from Canada when he moves down here to a man in El Segundo that teaches Bando but I am not sure that is what you are looking for. He seems to be more of the sport side of Bando and not the Military style and I don't think he teaches the Khukri. Not sure though
131  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Another Look into Knives " Standard Grip vs. Reverse Grip vs Reverse Inside on: May 28, 2008, 05:45:37 PM
So just like my other topic, Kerambit vs Straight Blade this one now looks into what everyone prefered method. Either Standard grip with a Kerambit or holding it down edge out or a look into the Shivworks style of reverse edge method.

Thoughts?
132  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Ghurkas in Iraq? and anyone know what system of Hand To Hand they use? on: May 28, 2008, 03:12:34 PM

Had no Idea that Ghurkas went to Iraq but I was also interested in their fighting system. Anyone have any idea of this?

http://www.command-post.org/archives/003357.html

Edited to add before it gets lost:

The Gurkhas Have Arrived
OPERATION IRAQI FREEDOM (ACCNS) -- Security at this forward deployed location has taken on a formidable new dimension. After adding layers of concertina wire, K-9s and four contingents of law enforcement, officials at the British installation have added a regiment nothing short of legendary.

The Gurkhas, the world-renowned Nepali special forces contingent of the British Army, have hunkered down here, alongside Air Force Security Forces and local police.

For the elite light infantry unit, hunkering down is a simple process, and one of the unit's many extraordinary capabilities. British Army Major Neil Stevens, the Battalion Second in Command of 2nd Royal Gurkha Rifles regiment, explained why his unit is so valuable.

"We can move anywhere in the world on 24 hours' notice," Major Stevens said. "We're ready to go anywhere, anytime."

He said the Gurkhas, rely on flexibility and operational experience. They are configured and used like the U.S. Army Rangers or U.S. Marines. They are also martial artists, airborne tacticians and masters at cover and concealment. As they patrol the perimeter here they'll be drawing upon a more intangible quality their reputation.

"Our capability is backed up by history," Major Stevens said. "We've received more Victoria Crosses than any other unit."

The Gurkhas have been honored 26 times with the cross, the British equivalent of America's Medal of Honor.

Their heritage is ripe with operational experience. After a British expeditionary conflict in Nepal in the early 19th century, the Royal Army was so impressed with the Gurkha fighters that it recruited and constructed special regiments of the elite soldiers. Since it's inception in 1815, the mostly Nepali force in composition and culture has participated in every significant campaign and many lesser-known military endeavors.

"In the last two years we've been everywhere the British Army's been, from East Timor to Afghanistan," Major Stevens said.

Their reputation is also tethered to their "ethos" -- adherence to a strict, self-imposed code of honor and discipline.

"We must be loyal, honest, well-trained," explained a rifleman standing in front of perfectly arranged cots flush and grounded at their encampment here. "We are very experienced, especially in jungle warfare."

A more recognizable trademark is their long and lethal Kukri knife, a symbol of their legacy and lethality.

The Gurkhas are working with the four agencies already securing this base, including Security Forces, RAF and Ministry of Defense Police and local constabularies.

"We're very happy to be working with the MOD police and U.S. Forces," a Gurkha rifleman said. "We are not sure about the conflict with Iraq and we don't know what will happen, but we're here now and we're happy to help."

Security Forces officials agree and are also happy to have the boost in capability, said Capt. Woody Boyd, the security forces commander at another deployed location, currently assisting in orchestrating the defense of this base.

"I can remember 12 years ago as an airman hearing people talk about Gurkhas and what they are capable of doing," Captain Boyd said. "The Gurkha is an extremely professional soldier and we're extremely honored to work with them. It definitely enhances security."

Security forces officials indicated the regiment will be deployed on the perimeter to thwart any intruders. It will also serve as a last line of defense before armed Air Force security forces on the airfield. Major Stevens alluded to the employment of a balance of conventional policing and stealthy tactics.

"We intend to be very visible during the day for the purpose of deterrence," Major Stevens said. "But at night it's another matter. We'll be configured accordingly."

138  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Karambit Vs. straight blades on: May 22, 2008, 10:20:28 AM
Of course legal issues apply here.

The PD solution has much to recommend it technically, but apart from LEOs and military in the field, what jurisdiction allows civilians to legally carry one?

Actually, a PD is quite legal in California, however the knife, like all fixed blades must be carried
exposed; it cannot be concealed.  Also, note certain cities have length limits, i.e. Los Angeles
is 3".  Now whether a PD is a good choice for self defense, I don't have an opinion.

As for another point, "why" you are carrying the knife, assuming it is carried exposed and meets
length limits etc. is not a legal issue in California.  My answer to a Leo can be to cut to
my cigars, cut rope, or simply "self defense".  Leo's do't like "self defense", but "use" is not relevant.

I live in California and I was once pulled over and asked why I have a knife on me and I responded "To cut my Belt incase of a car crash" I find funny how L.E.O don't like you to use the word "Self Defence" Like its a bad thing to defend yourself. I guess just more paper work to fill out  rolleyes
139  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Karambit Vs. straight blades on: May 21, 2008, 10:17:26 AM
All the point's you guys are bringing up are really great and I am glad someone mentioned "Killing" I don't really find myself wanting to kill anyone if the situation can be totally avoided.

I was once asked if I was attacked and I had a option of using a stick on a person or a knife what would I use? I said a stick because I don't want to do knife damage on someone. Maybe a good whap across the head would teach the person to maybe change his ways when he sat down to think about attacking someone else. Who knows? A blade only in the most SERIOUS situation..Maybe if Micheal Myers was at the door.

I also like what someone said about maybe having a item that would scare off potential attackers. A buddy of mine has never seen a Karambit but he has seen plenty of normal blades. I pulled out my Karambit to show him and his reaction was  " Oh my god, What is that thing? I said " A Karambit..It's a item from Indonesia and used in both Silat and FMA. He said " Wow, I would never want to get hit with that thing..If someone pulled that out on me I would run away full steam."

Maybe the idea of seeing a item that people are not used to seeing can be enough to make them go the other way or maybe not but I do know that what most people can't figure out, Understand or make sense of something they tend to be afraid of it, Turn away from it or just not want to deal with it.

And to end my post..Both are Terrible items to be used on you or someone else. Both have Stopping power. A well placed Karambit slash across the throat can be pretty terrible and a Knife to the heart could be really bad news.
140  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Karambit Vs. straight blades on: May 20, 2008, 11:09:26 AM
The Karambit has always been a Favorite of mine. I have a Emerson Combat Karambit and I have been in love with it and I also have a cold steel recon 1 tanto point and I can never really decide on what is better.

 I see the defence for a normal knife being Grab and Stab but the same can be said for a Karambit. You can grab and slash someone up terrible and  my mother who is a nurse said that deep slash wounds that rake across meat and vein are harder to stop the bleeding opposed to getting stabbed. A stab can be plugged up and you can have a better chance to make it to the hospital ( Unless you get stabbed in some major organ) But a deep terrible large surface rending is a large area and can't be plugged up as easy a a stab wound and you have a great chance of bleeding out faster but then again..If someone goes prison style on you with a normal blade that can end up with you spilling out everywhere.

If you are worried about stopping power , I don't think there are many people in the world that can take a Karambit shot to the throat area or right across the gut. I know I can't !!  cry

Many of the known natural predators have natural Karambit hanging/popping out of their body's for a reason. What those reason are, I hope to never find out.

But let's be real. Any sharp blade being swung at you Karambit or normal is not a good thing. lol!

143  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Karambit Vs. straight blades on: May 19, 2008, 12:10:27 PM
The problem I have heard with a normal blade is that the attacker does not feel the slicing cuts of a normal blade do to its small cutting surface and if you are not planning on killing someone from just out right stabbing, Slicing your way to freedom might be a more stay out of jail ticket.

I have heard that Karambit cuts are so terrible that a juiced up attacker would feel the ripping cuts of a Karambit.

I don't think it takes much finess to use either. A cave man swing with a Karambit would be terrible to be hit by.

I started trying to look into this little theory about "Civilised" World vs Tribal World.

Civilized world seems to have the benefit of large land and sea mass armies , Armor , Fire Power (Bows/Guns/War machines, Etc.) and of course I mentioned this but Combined unity of force and men.

Tribal World has limited numbers, Few to no Armor, Few to no Fire power. So I believe that maybe the tribal world was put into a life situation to were no matter the location they had to develop a natural fighting style that fit this?

Civilized world can move forward across the land and fight pretty much head to toe. Tribal world has to go around or to the side and or create a different pattern of attack.

Civilized world vs. Gorilla Warfare?  Again. Civilized World In America and Canada moves across the earth using standing gun line formation and a basic Calvary charge with heavy shelling, Native Americans with limited numbers use small arms fire, Gorilla warfare, Hit and Run and wait till the fire line is done and then charge into the line for hand to hand combat.

Seems the Philippines used the same method against the Spanish and the Japanese ( And others)

I am also curious to see why Civilized world grappling all seems to have some of the same methods. Arm Bars, Leg Locks so on and why tribal seems to have more of the rending grappling.

Could it be that Civilized world was dealing with grappling in a Armour situation and those are the only method of attacks that work. Getting a arm bar effects A section that is not covered by armor and with helmets on some Enemies going for the eyes is just not a option.

I would like to mention that when armour went out fighting seemed to change for Western World and Eastern World.

The coming of fencing gave Western Fighting more movement, More beating the guy to the punch attacks and grappling for either German Ringen or western grappling changed over time.

I am not saying that Western Longsword fighting did not have movement but I don't believe it had as much movement and targeting as fencing does.

Has anyone had the chance to look into this? I was talking to Guide Dog about it today after class and told him about a friend of mine who would like to enter a gathering but he does not practice Kali. He learned Native American Systems taught to him by a awesome man out of Barstow who lived in the Native American Reservation up by Crystal Lake or White lake..Anyways, this stuff is pretty off the chain.

I spared my friend the other day with his make shift tomahawk and he was holding a sharkie in his belt line. We would clash and he would hook my weapon or go for a leg, Behind the neck or shoulder hooks with his weapon and if his got me of footing or unbalanced he would pull his sharkie and try to stab me.

I was rather impressed.

It was his first time he sparred against someone using Kali and he was rather impressed. Their knife system of deployment was rather interesting and very to the point. Not really any slashes...

The grappling system he deployed was not very technical but very very effective. It was more of a charge to a flying or jumping tackle and then alot of smashing, Punches, gouges, Finger manipulation, Throat chokes and bites..

I found using BJJ against him was rather hard..And almost sometimes not worth the effort and just trying to get back to my feet.

The blows he threw were very off balance to look at, at first but they came from all directions..I saw how a good old fashion American hay maker could break though the line though.

The stalking he was using looked like Kali stalking to me..And then I brought this up to Guide Dogs attention.

It seems to me that Tribal People seems to fight almost the same or certain ways and Non Tribal civilizations seem to follow the same pattern.

I.E Western European Sword fighting and Eastern Japanese and Chinese Sword fighting follows this hand over hand stance, Front foot forward and a step to beat cut with very hard line blocks and cuts and maybe this has something to do with the fact that these groups had things like armour to protect and make up for certain movement? While Tribal groups seems to have this very free flow, Circle motion and some sort of zoning out, A stalk and hitting the limb before it hits you type stuff.

I also notice the grappling systems from tribal groups seem to follow this very brutal type of ground destruction. Bites, Gouges, Smashes and throat rends.

Am I totally off base here?

My friend also noticed this about Kali and NAFS he wondered about the samething after seeing kali being used against him.

Anyways, I brought this up to guide dog and asked him what he thought about my friend joining the ranks of a gathering and using his system to fight in it. He thought it sounded great but I need to help my friend find someone who can make a non lethal Tomahawk with the same snap as Rattan.

Any thoughts on this topic or suggestions?

Quick add. I found that Emerson knives have a great locking system and Also my Cold Steel Recon 1 Tanto is excellent.

I have a quick question. Does anyone have any ideas on how to carry a fixed blade with out looking like conan the barbarian in public?
