James Keating's Drawpoint series were the first video's that I actually took the time to practice. They are well laid out, with a good drill progression. Probably the single best source for reverse grip instruction, short of extensive training with an experienced instructor. There is one speed bump....

Well done Mr. Blonde! Push forward and figuring it out for yourself! Some people say they have trouble getting SE's to cut through clothing woven with heavy fibers, like wool. Supposedely the serrations will snag. . . . I have not carried out an experiment yet. (come to think of it, I have only part...

It's a great blade. I have one of the the G-10 versions, which is flat ground. That makes it a little thin, especially for a such a long blade. I would be a little concerned with the blade snapping. On the other hand, flesh is not renowned for it's density. If you don't twist or bend your blade agai...

Clearwater Gunting Seminar Review

Clear Water Gunting Seminar Review Review of Techniques. We covered the Horizontal-Vertical techniques 1-5. I've always known that there was about a half dozen ways to follow up any of these techniques. Once you've planted a guy on the ground, it's pretty easy to do with him what you want. But now I...

Smoothing the edges of a Drone?

I was at a seminar this weekend and managed to scrap open the knuckles of my training partner pretty good with my Drone. I've noticed before that the "blade" on my drone is cut nice and round but the edges are not rounded over much. By contrast, the "blade" on my CRMIPT is very rounded and smooth, i...

Gunting is great. Yes the edges of the ramp are "sharp", but not like a knife edge, think of it like the edges of ski's. all the corners and edges are right angles (90 degrees) but milled very fine. IF you rake bare skin with the ramp of a live "G" you'll break skin. The Crmipt has the ramp edges ro...

Grand Master Ferrer instantly "Got" the impact and locking ideas behind the Gunting. I'm pretty sure he was still at the seminar when Bram went over Kinetic Opening as well. When he intergrates this tool into his style, he is going to be SCARY!

Bram, I was REALLY hoping you weren't going mention the Kermabit! LOL

You know a LOT more about Grandmaster Louie Ferama (I'm not even sure how to spell his name) you want to give the guys a sentence or two on him?
