Context is very important. It's a little silly to assume some random person would be suddenly attacked by a person who shows a knife, threatens, and then attacks with seemingly no motive. This scenario could happen of course but this context is extremely rare compared to a situation where the attacker is seeking money for drugs or has a beef with the victim, etc. Even then, it's much more likely that a criminal will select a apparent easy victim like a small woman etc. in that case. Most self defense experts I know who have been in multiple knife attacks (note I didn't say knife "fights") recommend moving in as soon as possible. Yes control the knife if you can and use strikes, but continuing to stay at dueling distance is extremely dangerous. That said, everything about getting attacked with a knife is dangerous. I respect Nick for doing these social experiment videos, just happen to differ a little but in some tactics for the larger approach.

How can we move more when we are a culture of office workers and commuters? Serious question.

Alex, do you feel like you've added muscle more from calisthenics or from kettlebell?

Hey Neil.  Honestly, I'd say more from calisthenics in the upper body but more from kettlebells in the lower body.  It all depends on the exercise, though - unilateral work (pistols, one-arm pushups, one-arm kettlebell military press, etc.) will not likely add much muscle because of the stability challenge, whereas exercises with less of a stability challenge (double KB front squats, weighted dips, weighted pullups, etc.) will generally add more muscle.  Thanks for the question, and keep watching!

If you read the requirements for the century it says that either a pull-up or a chin-up is acceptable.

Finally. Pressure testing joint locks instead of just going along with them how you're "supposed to". :)

That was one of the most fun videos ive seen in awhile. I love how your nephew is so much bigger and the movements are still effective obviously. Very cool.

Interesting blog. I would also love to do the illusive one arm pullup one day. I try mixing up my workout a bit also. I have a pure CC workout consisting of single leg squats, one arm push ups, archer pull ups, and hspu. Every couple of months I switch to an alternate weighted vest workout for a month or so in which I do whatever CC excercises I can with the 60 pounds of weight that I currently have in the vest. Right now this is push up, pull up, and narrow stance squat. I have only been doing this for a year. I still have a long way to go.
