    I found this interesting. There are other similar videos out there but this is the first time I had come across this one with Guro Dan. Hopefully you enjoy it!

    Cheers all!

    That is from "Surviving Edged Weapons" put out in the late 80s. I remember seeing this training tape when I was in high school and thinking "don't wrestle with him!"

    21footrule.com covers the 21 foot rule and the whole blade vs. gun dynamic.

    Tuhon Leo T. Gaje Jr. was also in Surviving Edged Weapons with Guro Dan.

    These days they teach you to start shooting at 7 yards, because beyond that, you are in hand to hand range. Probably from vids. just like this. Like Steve Tarani says "don't bring a gun to knife fight". I'm sure he got that from Guro Dan Inosanto.
