There are many opinions on the realism of knife fights versus the training that people do to be prepared for one. In a storytelling context, we have to be clear about how the fights are furthering the storyline and revealing character. The innate fear/respect of fighters dealing with a knife attack is a great way to accomplish this.
Participants will learn knife fight choreography (beginners will do a simple fight while more advanced participants will get a complex tact knife fight). After learning the choreography we will continue to work through it to add realism. This will be done through a few sparring training scenarios to learn what it’s like in a knife fight.
