A knife in the hands of a skilled fighter is one of the most devastatingly effective self-defense weapons known to man. Unfortunately, finding the instruction that would allow you to become a skilled knife fighter has traditionally been difficult if not impossible — until now.
In The Leading Edge, Filipino martial arts master Bram Frank takes you step by step through the process of learning and mastering street-realistic edged weapons skills.
This groundbreaking two-volume Paladin production reveals the secrets of proper knife grip and manipulation, teaches the dynamics of both forward-grip and reverse-grip fighting styles, and shows you how to use partner training drills to hone your knife-fighting reflexes.
Frank also teaches you the intricacies of biomechanical cutting — a frighteningly effective knife tactic that allows you to maximize the stopping power of your blade by targeting specific anatomical targets.
