    Looks good! I didn't notice anything I thought was distinctly Italian, though.

    What is distinctly Italian? Does it need to have a marinara gravy (yes gravy not sauce) topping it is Motion...even in the second clip shown of the sicilian knife dance..those same movements can be found in many classical fencing schools...French, German, Spanish and Italian etc. etc...there is nothing new under the sun...just ones own personal interpretation of motion.....

    Looks like it's derived from fencing. But why in god's name would you place your live hand behind your back in a knife fight, especially when you are going to be in close quarters? Leaving your midsection exposed like that seems insanely dangerous.

    Keeping your live hand out of the fray can be good and bad, determined by range and also by length of blade. A man wielding a Natchez Bowie willd definitely have the range advantage against a man who has a 3" folder ..also if I have another daga placed tactically behind my back..but I do agree in close range that could be a detriment.

    Yes it does, but no more insane than getting into a knife fight to begin with.....LOL.....
