Last night I had just finished a 2 day edge weapons class at Front Sight. I went down to a local casino to have the prime rib buffet. I had been practicing for 2 days between open handed defenses and using my Kershaw Tyrade. I had the knife in clipped my pocket. As I was returning from the buffet line, there was and old guy (a little grungy) setting at the table next to me by himself. I passed between the tables and took my seat, and I heard "If you stick your ass in my face one more time, I'm going to put my knife up it".. I asked..."You talking too me??" At this point he picks up his steak knife and points it at me..."You A>>H>>>" Well I still had my Adrenalin level up pretty well from all the training, I knew he was no match for me, (and a little part of my really wanted to use some of this training I had just spent 2 days doing), but seeing one of the security people looking over I just raised my hand and waved him over. When he arrived I said "This man is threatened to stab me with he knife in his hand" The dumb Sh.. was still pointing the knife at me, and like the story goes the rest is all history...gave a statement to the police. What was most interesting too me, was my reaction, there was no fear or nervousness, I knew with a certainty that I could take his knife, and put him in any medical condition I was motivated to do. The problem is you seldom get to train against others with you knife, and I really wish there were places to go on a regular basis to do this. I really did enjoy the training I got in 2 days, and will try and repeat it every year.
