Inno Dubelaar Books Published: Want to Read saving…. Johnathan rated it really liked it Nov 08, cld Preview — Cold Steel by John Styers. What makes Biblio etyers Drexel Biddle Author of “Do or Die” cols, is very duelistic – that is to say it stays entirely within the realm of two combatants, knife on knife, at long range, vying for the right cut or hack to open up the opponent for a kill shot.

Friedrich Mencken rated it it was ok Aug 09, Overall a very tseel copy of this rare and important self-defense manual, especially tough to find in dj.

Now, it’s not quite as bad about this as Biddle’s work, and puts in practice a more combative platform less of a stylized fencing platformbut it’s still duelistic.

Cold Steel

Technique of Close Combat: I have seen these photos published before although the name of the book is escaping me. The stick material is fantastic, both the Long End and Short End techniques as presented.

Now – If real fights with knives happened this way, this would be the method for doing it, but, they don’t. Ian The rated it liked it Sep 08, Cold Steel By Styers, John.

Steek name stamped on front fly, modest edgewear, very good. For the big knife practitioners, a big blade does dictate some degree of range and the work in Cold Steel will apply there very well, but it may still be an un-equally armed fight, the same unarmed beginning and “drag race” to achieve superiority with a weapon.

The Unarmed segment makes excellent use of Elbows, Feet, and Body Mechanics as well as the “combative classic” Edge of Hand blow, the Chin Jab, and a few chokes, releases from holds and a little work from the ground.

Jeremiah Stone rated it liked it Apr 27, James rated it liked it Aug 25, Range is close, there is very little baiting and dancing around, there is simply up close hooking, cutting and hacking to clear limbs and stabbing to end it.

Charlie Rawlings rated it it was amazing Dec 22, Also of interest is the attempt to develop physical mechanics for using the knife that directly translate to using empty hands – A very progressive concept for the age of the book.
