He was touting himself as the real deal back then as well, but didn't want to play with one who had some knowledge and background. Very telling in his impression of his own skills and self confidence.
He's the "real deal" because you say so? Because your boss has utilized and offered his training? Just how much blade training have you had to be considered an authority on who's a "real deal" in defensive edged weapons anyway Randy?
As to knowing everything, that's your stated assumption, not mine Randy, I didn't post anything that would be construed as an absolute.. Again, you don't know what you don't know [ about me, Sotis or likely defensive blade work from your posts ].
As I stated:
Blocking the knife doesn't work in the real world, it only gives your opponent more targets of opportunity. is a true statement, one known by every serious defensive edged weapons player. I didn't suggest you would get cut, I stated blocking creates more targets of opportunity which it most certainly does.
