    What You Need to Bring: NOK trainer knife. I have several NOK Trainer loaners. You will also need eye protection. Shooting glasses are fine. Also a good idea is to get 2 "thigh wraps" or "back wraps" from Walmart to use as cheap forearm guards. They are not mandatory but they are a really good idea as they will save you a lot of forearm soreness later. Snacks and drinks. NO AMMO is needed so there's no ammo expense, so all you need is a NOK training knife (loaners are available) eye pro and back wrap .


    The primary skills we work on will be empty hand vs knife - keeping the bad guys from turning us into a pin cushion - accessing our own tools (knife ?, gun?, sap?, blackjack?, hand grenade?) and then using it to keep your attacker at bay.

    As far as footwear goes it is a basketball floor so no boots please. Just regular tennis shoes .!!!!

    IMPORTANT LUNCH INFO

    Last time we decided to go straight through instead of stopping for lunch. We then did a long and LEASURELY lunch afterwards at a local Mexican joint. So I'm going to suggest we eat afterwards. Just bring something to snack on and we will take a 30 min break to eat and rest during the normal lunch time.



    Also that evening just down the street at Hoptown Beer Bar in Cambridge Square ( 3 minutes from the church) they are apparently having a shindig to celebrate their 6th anniversary with live music and roast pig and free souvenir cups. Admission is FREE. So if you want to come out and join us that day you can enjoy a day of stabbing and slashing each other (and learning to defend against it) and then enjoy a beer (or beverage of your choice) and some roast pig afterwards. Knife fighting and pig roasts go together like guns and leather ..... or like clubs and baby seals...

    Hope to see you there !

    What a great training opportunity! I would attend if I was anywhere close by.

    Proper development of the 'Warrior Spirit', training and physical conditioning before 'The Event' cannot be overstated.

    My first knife fight was as a teenager in a parking lot at a dance...a quicenyera. A homey pulled a blade because I had kissed his girl. I actually kicked the knife out of his hand...LOL. He yelled, "Oh fuck" and ran off...the girl stayed.

    Second and third knife fights were in uniform...I've written about them I think.

    My last one...where blood was drawn was in a country in Central America.

    Somebody lost an eye over that one.

    You can even get knives in the quicenyera package at the mall.
