Master of the Blade by Richard Ryan

Book Description

* A riveting and informative account of the world of knife fighting Written by one of the world's foremost authorities on martial arts and weapon craft, Master of the Blade is an instructional manual on the realistic use of the knife in self-defence. Based on the Tactical Edged Weapons System of Richard Ryan's Dynamic Combat Method, it offers priceless insights into a world shrouded in mystery, hype and mystique, and dispels common myths about knife fighting. Ryan covers the various types of blades and how to choose one that's right for you; knife fighting stances, grips, targets, striking patterns and types of cuts; the basics of defence and counterattack; blade tactics and strategies against different types of weapons and attackers; deadly mistakes such as overcommitment and hesitation; dealing with fear and the importance of mindset; carry methods and tactical concealment; and realistic training methods. Master of the Blade explores the deadly art of knife fighting in a refreshing and often humorous manner, presenting the stark realities of knife fighting in a way we can all understand and digest. The old adage"don't bring a knife to a gunfight" won't have the same meaning for you once you've read this book. About the Author Richard Ryan is a leading expert on martial arts, self-defence and tactical weapons training. His company, RDS International, offer a wide range of services to government, law enforcement and qualified civilians.
