Overview

The Knife Training Methods and Techniques for Martial Artists series gives the martial arts interested person a solid background on the importance of the knife as a combat weapon, inspires the reader about the benefits of knife training, and provides detailed instruction in how to manipulate and defend against a knife with speed, proficiency, and confidence.

Almost any martial art, traditional or modern, can be adapted to knife offense and defense without changing the basic principles of the art. Since the knife is a relatively small and lightweight weapon, many of the moves and movement patterns you use in your empty-hand art are easily transferable to your knife techniques, and vice versa. The practical lessons you learn by adding knife training to your arsenal include quick reaction skills, physical and mental control, footwork and evasion tactics, distance control, and target precision. Knife training gives you a decided physical and mental edge and opens new dimensions that will deepen your understanding of the martial arts.

This special volume contains books 1 through 5 of the Knife Training Methods and Techniques for Martial Artists series, with focus on deploying and attacking with the knife (each book can also be purchased separately):

1. Knife Anatomy
2. Knife Carry and Deployment
3. Knife Grip and Manipulation
4. Knife Attacks and Targets
5. Knife Fighting Stance, Footwork, and Dynamics of Motion

Books 6 through 10 of the Knife Training Methods and Techniques for Martial Artists series can be found in the Knife Defense (Five Books in One) volume, and can also be purchased separately.
