I'm just going with what i've seen on movies with regard to knifefighting,looking cool.Jimd wrote:In the movies, it looks cool. When I've seen people stabbed to death nearby, it never really looked very cool. It looked 100 times worse than any horror movie I've ever watched.
Way more skill involved?! How tough is it to use an ice pick grip, run up to someone, and begin hammering them with the blade? I've seen that a few dozen times. The deadliest people with knives I've ever observed never had a martial arts lesson in their lives. They had the best training: OJT (on-the-job-training).
Re. guns being "more destructive", you're more likely to die from a knife wound than a gunshot wound. That's a fact.
I've spoken with several hundred gunshot wound survivors (and scads of knife wound survivors, too). The truth is, people seldom die from either, most survive their wounds.
But trust me...it ain't "cool" or neat to see. Blood flies everywhere, the contests of intestines stinks very badly, and dead bodies look...well, dead!
To probably do this in a real situation as selfdefense,i'l choose to rather fight without any weapon and rely on martial arts for selfdefense or unarmed combat only.
I have had no personal real encounters with knifefighting and i would defenitely not seek any.
Having to maybe see a knifefight in real life,would
be shocking and i certainly wish not to encounter any.
