This post serves as the end of my experimentation of using a bicycle inner tube to mount a knife to my belt. You can read the original post here, as well as my follow up once I started force on force training with it. Final Evaluations I continued to use the bike tube + retention line […]

Force on Force Counter Ambush TDI Kabar Knife and MDTS Raven Concealment PocketShield 21 Jan 2017

I’ve written about the PocketShield, created by Chris Fry of MDTS Training, made and sold by Raven Concealment. I’ve been carrying the KA-BAR TDI knife in my right pocket for almost a year (here are my current thoughts, and a little history). I’ve been able to deploy the TDI knife a few times during force […]

An Update on Using a Bicycle Inner Tube as a Knife Mount

| January 27, 2017 | 0 Comments

Please read this post if you haven’t already. In discussing an inner tube as a knife mount, I expressed concern that I might just pull the entire knife out — including sheath. One of you recommended cording the sheath to myself (belt loop, big safety pin, whatever) in case it happened. I did this immediately […]

Ed from Ed’s Manifesto taught his two day Weaponology course here last November (day 1 review, day 2 review). The class was around 14 hours of structured-yet-free-flowing techniques, tidbits, and tactics that Ed has picked up throughout his career. One of the (many, many) interesting things mentioned in passing was using a bicycle inner tube to […]

Knife Concealment Techniques and Force on Force Laundry Basket Scenario

Knife Concealment Techniques and Force on Force Laundry Basket Scenario

| December 8, 2016 | 0 Comments

Two of the things I like the most about multi-disciplinary fight-focused training is learning different things and then combining them to solve contextual problems. Last Saturday I attended this “season’s” first Force on Force class with QSI Training. I was able to combine some old skills with something I learned last month from the Weaponology class from […]

On Monday, November 28 2016 Abdul Razak Ali Artan attacked students at Ohio State University by using a car and a knife. He wounded 11 people before being shot and killed by Ohio State University police officer Alan Horujko. Details are still emerging. I don’t think we’ll get video like we did with the similar St. […]

Ed’s Manifesto Weaponology Day 2 3×3 Review

Ed’s Manifesto Weaponology Day 2 3×3 Review

| November 11, 2016 | 1 Comments

“But wait, there’s more.” This phrase was heard multiple times during the 2-day Weaponology class with Ed’s Manifesto. Ed’s calm, charismatic voice assured us that no matter how much we groaned or cringed when he described a technique that “we can make it worse.” Day 2 built on the foundations of Day 1 and focused […]

This Isn’t Working vs This Won’t Work

I was being choked. I had a slight smile on my face. The scent of Tide, thoughts of teaching my wife this technique, the service I provide by being a crash test dummy. I enjoyed this. : squeeze : : more squeezing : : release : “Keep going,” I encouraged through gritted teeth. I felt my […]

Video and Observations on St Cloud Terrorist Shooting by Jason Falconer

On September 17, 2016, an Islamic terrorist attacked the Crosswoods Center Mall with two knives. An armed citizen responded — off-duty law enforcement officer, 3-gun competitor, and firearms trainer Jason Falconer. He stopped the threat and escaped without injury. Earlier this week, the mall security footage from the attack was released. The original video had some […]
