What are the best, most practical knife videos? How about the one's put out by Gunsite, Kelly Worden and Kelly McCann? If you could only order one or two, what are the top two?

Many knife videos are flawed, imo, by a lot of impracticality (to much art).

First, may I suggest looking at Surviving a Knife Fight and Winning a Knife Fight by Marc MacYoung (http://nonsenseselfdefense.com/).

Then, take (stick and) knife training from a competant teacher , 6 months to a year.

Then, you will be able to critique the videos for yourself, trim down the fat and get to the core. Otherwise, you will overload, or become convinced that sincerity and intensity equal practicality.

I've heard good stuff about McCann but haven't seen his video, yet!

Thank you for your opinions. I thought McCann's would be good and I also thought that the Gunsite video's would be basic, just from the descriptions I've read. I'm not looking for basic as I have trained for many years in different martial arts and have had quite a bit of knife and other weapons training on the practical side.
