Seperating myth from reality
What do i know from personal experience and research?
All i am doing is offering advice not preaching the gospel, maybe you wont have to bleed to learn them like I did, lets face it fighting hurts and the truth is, its unpredictable. Most people dont have the experience it takes to know what to watch out for, these things do happen in alleys and bars.
Incase you hadn`t noticed death is a long term thing, crippled is no week stint. Period one can minimize attacks if your alert.
In Ryukyu Kobudo, Ryukyu training you will get the advanced details to defend yourself in a real street fight. Many films, Mags, tv programmes depict knife combat in a totally unrealistic manner, most of which will probably get you killed. In an actual self-defence confrontation out on the streets its sometimes more important to know what not to do than what to do. Avoiding the pitfalls posed by knife self-defence mythology may very well save your life or from injury. To thousands of innocent people who are attacked by thugs in our streets each year Ryukyu training may prevent needless injury.

I am fascinated with speed, the one ingredient in martial arts that still thrills this ageing scrapper is speed, hands that move as quickly as an Iguana tongue, kicks that crack the air .
Though there are a few exceptions most competitors and instructors agree that speed is one of the most important attributes a fighter can posses. Physical strength, courage, flexibility, endurance, sparring ability and grappling skills are all important but if you are not fast enough to block an opponents attack, or your to blow to hit him the other attributes will be of little value. In the Ryukyu system you can learn how to go fast. Can perception be improved? Reflexes sharpened? Timing polished? Are there things that can be done to to double your speed? The answer is yes to all of these questions. I have experienced with all of the excersises and drills and the exciting news is that i have got faster in the process. Know that you can develop speed if your tired. Improvement takes time and effort but it is definetely worth it because its fun to be fast.
Instructor Steve " What do we want class "? Speed
Instructor Steve " When do we want it "? Now
Speed is often the difference between first and second in a tournament or first and dead in a real life battle.
Have you ever defended yourself from someone with a knife intent on killing or injuring you?
Are your theories derived from television, movies or magazines?
Be honest with yourself, knife fighting myths can be your greatest enemy, learn the basic facts.
1, Experienced fighters do not lead with the knife.
2, Experienced fighters will not leave the knife hand extended and stationary after a thrust allowing you the chance to apply a hold.
3, An experienced fighter will hit you with his free hand, it is not paralyzed, it takes guts to face someone with a knife or a broken bottle. Be aware of the easy solution, in Ryukyu kobudo, training is simple and direct, you should have the attitude that no one can stop you, never panic.
Practice direct no nonsense training methods. Think, observe and learn.
Remember this when you apply Ryukyu kobudo in your training.
Staying alive is the primary reason.
