I don't have much knowledge about gun fighting other than that some effective methods are obviously to first of all stay out of melee range, to shoot them before they can close, to run/dodge in zigzag motions or to advance in zig zag motions as you shoot if you are being shot at as well, and to make it random, make it fast, and get to cover as soon as f***ing possible.

If you are good enough or highly trained such as being ex INfantry or SWAT, then you'd know about rolling to cover, rolling to prone position to fire, etc. Basically you want to make yourself as small a target as possible.

That's all I know about gun fighting.

Knife fighting is about controlling the knife and is pretty f***ing scary. I dont know much else about knife fighting other than that you must always try to control the enemy's knife/knife arm and to perform a jointlock that immobilizes their knife arm ASAP. Or you get the f**k out of melee range and blow their head off.

Also, knife fighting is much more arm work, I think as opposed to sword fighting which is more about footwork, form, lunging, side stepping, block/counter and maybe trying to get in a kick while their sword is occupied.

How about Krav Maga? Is it effective? I know it originated in Israel and all their soldiers are trained in it.

I heard that about the Commies. Didn't Tai Chi used to be a martial art? There's a Tae Kwon Do dojo in my town I trained in for a few years. You're right about it being finishing moves; I figured that out pretty quickly. Luckily I'm pretty flexible, but it never struck me as a good base art. They taught grappling, arnis sticks, stuff like that too. If I get back in I think I'd go for Muay Thai or Kyokushin.

Mike Tyson was a great boxer and a great athlete, but in a thai boxing match or in an MMA match, such head movements would just get one kneed in the head!

For five years I worked as a matchmaker, manager, and trainer for pro boxers from Thailand, the PI, and Guyana. Now I've semi-retired from boxing, for the most part because the sport has gone to shit.

Anyhow, here's vid of some Muay Thai with my kids training. I trained them in boxing, maybe 15 minutes a day 3-4 days a week but their Thai boxing training has lagged. It's getting better but they're still immature physically.
