I think that depends on what you define as "defanging the snake".  I'd say if you get fingers lopped off or a substantial slash/stab to the hand, then the likelihood that you'll retain your weapon is unlikely.

The authors (along with the help Dr. Michael Doberson; a coroner and a professor of pathology at the University of Colorado) compare Fairbairn's "Timetable of Death" with the realities of edged weapon attacks. The targets selected are based on those presented in Fairbairn's table but with a plethora of variables relating to the target being attacked (i.e. percentage of blood volume the target is responsible for, time / shock, time / unconsciousness, time / death, etc..). The book is graphic in certain spots so you'll probably want to avoid leaving on it out in plane sight. Finally, although there is a healthy amount of Janich's MBC material, the reader gets a more factual grasp as to what is involved in an edged weapon attack.

You may find the answers your seeking in Christopher Grosz and Michael Janich's books "Contemporary Knife Targeting: Modern Science vs. W.E. Fairbairn's Timetable of Death", which is published by Paladin Press.

Speaking of swine flu or H1N1, if the event any of you are in a pickle trying to get your hands on an N95 mask; the CDC has a solution on their website.

I can't testify how effective it is, so your mileage may vary.

Hope this helps

Crafty:

Try here for carver's chain mail gloves.

I imagine that you could also get some fellet gloves ,like these, from your local sporting goods store.

Try chapter 12 of "Filipino Fighting Arts" by Mark V. Wiley (ISBN:0-86568-180-5).

Hope this helps

This was my first gathering, and I have to say that nothing could have prepared me for how awesome the experience was. The atmosphere of the fight area only added to the energy. Elevated over the fight area was subdued lighting for the cameras, which made the fight area stand out even more than I would imagine it would.  I was lucky to get offered a chance to team up Tim for a 2 vs. 2 knife fight (against Rich and Moe). All of the techniques I thought I had down seemed to turn in thin air. I found in hindsight that I made a lot of mistakes that I never make (i.e. dropping my knife then trying to pick it up....Rich and Moe pounced on me immediately). I know that I'll get better at it and look forward to the journey that will only bring improvement.  I then got to fight Pappy Dog for my first ever "real contact" stick fight. This fight I'm sure I'll remember forever.  Thanks goes out Pappy Dog for schooling me.  Then I got to fight Dan. He got me with a buzzsaw and then showed how to do it, which I thought was pretty cool of him.  I ended up sitting out the rest of the gathering as a result of the buzzsaw, but as a bonus I got to see a lot of great fights.  One of the coolest fights was a 6' bullwhip against single stick.  Crafty, Cindy, Salty,  TopDog, OP and numerous other people did a great job on the gathering and the fight area as well.  I got to meet a lot of great people and be part of something special.  The coolest thing of the whole gathering was that I learned a ton about myself as a fighter and walked away with a humbleness that will only motivate me to get better.  Unfortunately I had to head out right after the gathering so I missed the post gathering meal, but there is always November.

I don't see why metalic tape (the kind used for ac work...I think) couldn't be used on the non-conductive sides of the knife. This now temporarily altered blade would offer a little more realism and allow everyone else to follow the flow of the blades.  After your done peal off the tape and use a plastic-safe gunk remover to remove any tape residue.

You'd be taking the knife outside of it's designed function.  You run the risk of either shorting the knife out, or reducing the voltage density and reducing the level of shock the fighters received.  Also, the adhesive of the tape may interfere with the conductivity into the tape.

Sorry, I'm an Engineer  wink
Damn engineers   smiley  Does anyone know a good substitute for wrestling shoes? I'm not accustomed to working on mats (so not sure what constitutes "mat safe") and currently am having a hell of a time finding wrestling shoes.

Corpus Christi, Texas

Police arrested a suspected burglar on Thursday after the 21year-old man sought treatment for gunshot wounds officials believe occurred when a resident heard noises in his garage and fired at an intruder.

Daniel Dunn, 50, told police it was just before 6 a.m. Thursday that he heard a noise in the garage of his home in the 2200 block of Gershwin Lane. Dunn told police he found a young man in his garage who began swinging a knife at him, cutting Dunn across the neck and a hand. Dunn said that after he was cut, he ran in his house and grabbed a .22caliber rifle and fired at the intruder.

Dunn told police he started screaming for help as the intruder ran, following him for as long as Dunn could. Dunn was taken to Bay Area Medical Center where he received stitches.

Police discovered the suspect after officials at Christus Spohn Hospital Memorial notified them of a gunshot victim.

Police said the 21-year-old suspect has bullet wounds in one of his legs, his arm and his pelvis.

The suspect, who hasn't seen a magistrate judge, was placed under guard at the hospital after officers learned he had unrelated warrants for his arrest.

The investigation is continuing.
