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.

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.

The facility is clean and the staff friendly and I saw a nurse relatively quickly, but after my condition had already pretty much been determined they made me wait an hour in the little room for the doctor. Come on really? At least tell me so I could come back another day.
