My stances with the throwing knife

My method of throwing knife:

The method of throwing knife from the stance of the concept “mixed medium techniques of all martial arts”

NET2[1] 2

  1. The right hand on the right hip or chest
  2. The right hand holding the knife
  3. A center of gravity supported between both feet
  4. Bend your knees slightly
  5. Step into your throw by right foot
  6. The left hand ( fist) on the left hip or chest
  7. Swing your right forearm towards the opponent, and release the knife.

The method of throwing the knife from the stance of the concept “mixed medium techniques of all martial arts”:

 

NET4[1] 2.jpg

How:

 Figure A)

  1. Toes are parallel
  2. The weight equally supported by both legs
  3. The feet should be about shoulder width
  4. The left foot forward
  5. The weak side of body forward
  6. Bend your knees
  7. Bring your right hand with the throwing knife  so that the knife pointing at the sky
  8. Bring the left arm so that it adjacent to your hip

 Figure B)

  1. Pivot your body and step with your right foot
  2. Swing the right hand with the throwing knife towards the target as you pivot assuming the front stance with the left arm position about the chest height.

Notice: The stance from a one of my fundamental martial arts’ work called ” mixing the medium techniques of all martial arts”. You can see a one of the basic and medium distances between you and an opponent, and a way to throw a hand with weapon towards the opponent ( throwing knife )

The side stance

knive.jpg

  1. The rear feet’s heel is slightly raised up
  2. A center of gravity is slightly forward
  3. Bend your knees slightly
  4. The left arm protects the mid section and head
  5. The leading hand keeps lower and it covers the the right side of the body
  6.  The strongest side forward
  7. The leading hand holds the throwing knife

The front stance ( No description added because you can read it on the picture shown below):

The front stance with the throwing knife  ( No description added because you can read it on the picture shown below):

NET3.jpg

The front stance

How to assume this stance:

1. The rear heel is slightly raised up
2. The feet are set shoulder width
3. The center of gravity slightly forward
4. The off-hand protects mid section ( lung, throat, heart and so on). The palm of none dominant hand facing upward because the strong( solid)side of arm protects better from slashes and etc.
5. The knife position about head height. It allows maximum reach because the knife nearest to the enemy.
6. Bend your knees slightly.
7. The strong side ( the right side) of body forward.

The horse stance

How to assume this stance:

1.The off-hand protects mid section ( lung, throat, heart and so on).
2. Toes outward at 45 degrees angle.
3. A weight supported equally by both legs
4. The knife position about head height. It allows maximum reach because the knife nearest to the enemy.
5. Bend your knees strongly down. The feet are set slightly wider than shoulder width.

The side stance

How to assume this stance:

1. The off-hand protects mid section ( lung, throat, heart and so on). The back palm pressed against chin or jaw like in boxing or modern MMA.
2. Toes outward at 45 degrees angle. The rear heel is slightly raised up
3. The center of gravity slightly forward
4. The knife position about head height. It allows maximum reach because the knife nearest to the enemy.
5. Bend your knees slightly. The feet are set shoulder width.
6. The strong side ( the right side) of body forward.

The side stance

1. The both balls of feet on the floor.
2. Toes outward at 45 degrees angle.

The front stance with extended lead hand towards the opponent

Fig.J

How:

This stance has no big difference from the well known stance with extended left hand towards the goal and slightly shifted weight to the rear foot(see Fig.M).

Fig. M

I just preferred to lift up the rear heel and move a center of gravity slightly forward and thus, make it better(see Fig.J).

The front stance with the left hand which is covers head and mid section (See Fig.Z)

Fig.Z

How:

1. The weak side is forward.
2. The left hand protects mid section and head.
3. Bend your knees slightly.
4. The rear heel is slightly lifted up. The right hand with knife close to your head and not too far from head (as you can see in almost all throwing knife arts). Only sometimes we can extend hand far from head. The widely known position ( See Fig.Y) has no heel raised up and the left hand opens the wide part of body to opponent.

Fig.Y

The modified stance of Ninja

Fig.N

How:

1. The rear heel is slightly lifted up
2. The weight slighly shifted forward
3. Bend slightly your legs
4. The feet are set shoulder width
5. The left hand protects head and mid section
6. The strong ( right) side of body forward
7. The throwing arm protects head as well

The stance of Ninja:

Fig.V

This stance looks ineffective ( See Fig.V) if compare it with the modified stance of Ninja ( See Fig.N). Because the head and whole part of body opened for opponent. The rear heel is on the floor. Both legs are almost straight and et cetera.

The modified stance with throwing knives ( darts) in the none dominant hand:

After:

22719_900

More effective because:

2.The lead hand ( right ) with the knife allows maximum reach because the knife position nearest to the enemy
3.The strong side ( right ) of body forward
4.Bend your knees slightly
5.A center of gravity slightly forward
6.The rear heel slightly raised up

IMG_2772 2.JPG

In the Fig.1 and Fig.2 you’ll see the effective way to throw a knife towards the opponent ( Fig.3). In the Fig.1 and Fig.2 you can see a one of the most ineffective ( useless) ways to throw the knife towards the opponent, which I have invented by scientific approach. You need to stand up and turn to the opponent ( Fig.2) before throwing a knife. When you are doing it make a circle by the hand with a knife from top to the bottom. In Fig.3 you can see a one of the effective ways to throw the knife because you don’t need several steps to throw the knife. Just short movement by the leading hand and that’s it.

Less effective because:

1. The rear foot’s heel is not raised up
2. The legs often straight up

Note: In general speaking, people don’t assume even this position.

The most effective stance against throwing objects ( stones, and so on)

 

Of course, the effective way to avoid stabbing by knife or hitting by stone or punch is constantly move and never stay in a one place. But what if you can’t move or have no time for it? We’ll consider this situation. If you noticed, it is somewhat the natural reflex and people instinctively crouch and cover head and body to avoid dangerous strike when they are in the street fight. The instinctive move is often the effective move. If you will try to block or parry the thrown object you might get hit because it is not easy for ordinary person to parry or catch, for example, the stone which is thrown by somebody. In this case, the good option should be using the stance shown here ( Figure A) and B) ) .

IMG_2707 3

1.The left arm protects mid-section ( lung, heart, neck)
2.The right arm held lower and it covers the right side of body. Bring the leading arm  so it is adjacent to your groin
4.Bend your knees slightly
5.A center of gravity slightly forward
6.The feet are set shoulder width
7.The rear heel slightly lifted up
8.The right side of the body forward

Some details:

Bring down your front arm.  The front arm should be held across your right foot. Lift up the right arm to hide your chin and big part of head behind it (Hunch your lead shoulder up toward your ear and tuck your chin to protect your face as much as possible). You have to hide your chin and head maximum behind your shoulder and avoid opponents’ throwing stones.  Keep your chin and head as low as you can, towards your chest for maximum protection. The hit might be blocked by the shoulder.The back arm covers the head by palm or fist. The hit might be blocked by right arm or hand. You can even catch the stone or other throwing object to counter by it.  It might frustrate opponent because this stance gives you very good protection and opponent’s inability to penetrate the guard. The left arm covers the mid section and makes impossible to create the real damage to your body. Rest your rear hand on your head.

The front arm and foot can get hurt with all the hits coming its way. But this is the best stance for defense against stones and objects thrown towards you. Because your face, and big part of the head as well as groin, stomach, liver and other vital points covered by the hands and head position. The foot and body position has the important role in it as well.

The modified natural position which cover head, and midsection of your body.
In soccer there is a situation when players assume the position with hands laid on the groin because they afraid to get hit by ball ( See Fig.2 ). But what if the ball hits the head? So i would prefer protect groin and head at the same time ( See Fig.1).

Another defensive move

 

dartsstances 2 2

There is the second way of defensive move against somebody who throws stones and so on. When the opponent throws a stone simply bend and lift the right foot up keeping the same position of hands and head described below. You do it to avoid possible injury of the leading foot. Moreover, it strengthens your blocking the hit by stone.
