The sight of sharp, cold steel in your enemy's hand is not a pleasant sight. Knife fighting is an ugly business; it means steel against steel; then steel against flesh - and death. Let's take a look at your enemy's blood. That's one thing you can't draw from the quartermaster by signing a chit. But it's a lot easier to draw than size 13 boondockers - you know that your enemy has it You're far behind the lines, maybe you're a communications man operating your switchboard.
Your carbine is propped against a tree nearby. Your outfit is in the area but out of sight. You're alone, and. You've been warned that there is the possibility of guerrilla activity and infiltration. Your knife is constantly at your side. It gives you a great deal of confidence, but your real assurance comes from your confidence in your own ability to save your own life with that knife by carving out a heavenly military career for your enemy in whatever particular Valhalla he happens to believe exists.
A twig snaps! You look up from the switchboard. An enemy is rushing at you, both hands raised-in each a knife!
He's got one objective: To drive them downward into your chest! You whip up your knife; you leap into the guard position. Your enemy slows his advance; immediately he realizes that before him is no frightened schoolboy. Instead, he sees a calm, fighting man - poised, ready for instantaneous action, armed with deadly steel, its point directed menacingly at his throat. You advance cautiously into your proper range, your knife never wavering from his throat.
Both of his fists are out in front of him. They are your first targets. Too late, he realizes that your range is greater than his, and that he has allowed you to come in too close.
Like the fangs of a cobra your blade strikes out in a full cut and you are back in your guard position, your blade again pointed at his throat. There is a dull thud on the ground and a mild ping as the knife falls from your opponent's left hand, along with parts of his fingers if your cut has been accurate and hard.
You have stunned your opponent; you can afford a split second before pressing the attack. From your guard position you lower yourself quickly, and with your blade still pointed at his throat, you scoop up a handful of dirt and return to the guard position.
You are ready for the kill. Your enemy is now in a do or die rage; his only thought is to kill YOU any way he can. He raises his blade beside his head and charges. You heave the dirt, execute an in-quartata, and yell. Your target is his heart. As he hurtles by the spot you vacated a moment before, your blade is almost wrenched from your hand as it cuts its way out of his body.
Your opponent is now lying about five yards beyond the spot in which he had intended to leave YOUR lifeless form. Cautiously you inspect the corpse of your enemy. Your job was clean. There was no need for in-fighting. We nod. Knife fighting is based on the age-old science of swordsmanship.
Now, hold it straight, NOT cocked upward. Keep the thumb about a quarter of an inch from the thumb guard. This space is allowed to take up the shock caused by the impact when your knife strikes its target. DON O arch the thumb on the thumb guard. The hold. There are only two changes. The Sabre Stance 1. Face your opponent at attention. Notice how easily you are able to advance and withdraw-forward and backward. Movement to the left or right is more difficult.
In practice, a knife, bayonet or stick may represent the sabre. To assume the knife duelist stance from the sabre stance 1. The thrust. Blade drives into target. Free arm snaps back 2. In sabre fighting the arm can be safely extended because the weapon is long and the handle is equipped with a hand guard. In knife fighting you have a lightning-fast blade but there is little protection for the hand.
Your shoulders face your opponent squarely. In this position there will be no lead with your shoulder and knife betraying the nature of your attack. The guard position will become a natural reaction. Place a sabre or a rapier in the hand of an experienced duelist and he will immediately snap into the guard position with a reflex action almost as strong as drawing the hand from a hot surface.
This may be difficult to understand at first, but be assured, it is true. Tips 1. Keep your feet at about a 90 degree angle.
The blade is drawn in, close to the body, and held in an unbroken line from your elbow to the point. Shoulders face the opponent squarely. Torso and head are held erect. The arm on hip should swing free, but care must be taken to prevent it from extending beyond the hand which holds the knife. Your blade points directly at your opponent's throat. The side view of the guard position. Major portions of the body will not be extended into an opponent's range.
The straight thrust, side view. The torso pivots on axis of spine. The blade is snapped directly to the target. If the target is your opponent's throat your point should strike in a direct line to the throat. The upper portion of the body has pivoted forming a straight line from your blade point back along your arm, across the shoulders and down the free arm in the rear.
In executing the thrust, the beginner will have a tendency to lean forward and push. Your attack should be instantaneous. From the front, your opponent should see only the blur of a point on the extended arm, and the sudden disappearance of the broadside view of your upper body; in its place, your enemy will find only the thin silhouette of the NARROWEST portion of the torso. The attitude of your blade, well back and pointed at your opponent's throat, is like a pistol leveled at a target - ammo in the chamber, the hammer back, your finger on the trigger.
Thepoint is your bullet. He won't know what hit him. He won't see it coming. This is true in professional boxing. If an opponent is open and in range of a left jab, he's going to be hit. If an opponent tries to make an underhanded attack he will come within your range but you will still be out of his reach.
Your advantage over your opponent is a range of eighteen to twenty-four inches. Simply said. Simply explained - later. It is the conviction of the writer that the Bowie-shaped blade was scientifically designed by James Bowie for the control of this natural whip. If your opponent tries an overhand stroke he must come in close; your straight thrust pivots your chest out of his range 2.
Do not be too anxious to draw the weapon back prematurely. Only in a well-executed thrust which does NOT strike home, will you find the whip-like movement of the blade. When the point reaches its target, penetrating flesh or bone, the whip is taken up by the substance which is hit. An enemy's overhand stroke leaves him wide open for your thrust.
With the thrust you take your knife to the target. If a FULL thrust does not strike the target the natural whipping action will take place. Where a stiletto or narrow pointed knife would penetrate like an ice pick and leave a puncture wound, the Bowie-shaped blade will whip down into the target, ride forward, then snap UP.
The movement has been completed in one ninety-fourth of a second when recorded by a highspeed camera. All tissues, muscles, veins or tendons caught in the path of the scimilar-like hook of the Bowie blade will be sliced clean through.

The knife came to be used all over the world in very different formats but while its reputation was made as a fighting knife, very little material was left behind to understand how exactly people fought with such a weapon. It seems that as the popularity of revolvers gained ground, the practice of Bowie knife fencing dwindled and finally disappeared or at least mutated into something else. Unfortunately, the article is written in an interview format and without actually being there it can be hard to understand what exactly Ohnimus meant and so many techniques descriptions are rather cryptic. Not only that but while the techniques presented are very fine the article does not give enough details to reconstitute a completely workable style of knife fighting as too many unknowns remain. Throughout the text you can notice something very interesting; Ohnimus makes several mentions to Mexican techniques and goes on to praise the skills of his southern neighbors as being second to none. The image of Mexicans as fierce knife fighters was very strong at this time and perhaps not without good reasons. Knife fighting was itself very much popular in Spain and many settlers would have brought with them their ideas of honor and their own fighting techniques which would be changed in the context of the New World.

Сожаление. Снова и снова тянется его рука, поблескивает кольцо, деформированные пальцы тычутся в лица склонившихся над ним незнакомцев. Он что-то им говорит. Но что. Дэвид на экране застыл в глубокой задумчивости.
Горя желанием выяснить, поддается ли Цифровая крепость взлому, Стратмор принял решения обойти фильтры. В обычных условиях такое действие считалось бы недопустимым. Но в сложившейся ситуации никакой опасности в загрузке в ТРАНСТЕКСТ этой программы не было, потому что коммандер точно знал, что это за файл и откуда он появился.
