I'm not a hundred percent sure everyone fully understood what I meant by forget your body. I meant that bad knife fighters people become like a dog
once they get a knife in their hand. They stop having a full body of weapons, and only think of their knife. Another mistake is, when fighting a
skilled knife fighter is to see only the knife and forget the rest of their body.
If you notice an opponent focusing too much on your knife, it will function very well for you as a distraction for the rest of your body to strike
than as a weapon itself.
Another mistake people make is, if they or their opponent drop the knife, to spend their time trying to get it. Don't. Ignore it. Keep track of it
of course, but forget about trying to get it. If your opponent is dumb enough to drop everything to try and get it, go pure offensive cause the
opening you just gained is huge, and you can quite possibly end the fight right now.
Main point is always focus on attack/defense, be aware of your surroundings, how they might be used, and never be distracted by anything to
inconvenient to access. No matter what you or your opponents weapon, remember, it's only one of a world and body of tools around.
Another trick I've learned, never be afraid to look crazy, do unpredictable things, act a bit nuts. If your opponent doesn't know what to make of
you, then it will be harder for them to predict you, as well as be certain of themselves. Half a fight is psychological. If you can throw your
opponent off their game, even if they're a superior fighter by skill, it still might be enough to turn the fight in your favor.
Well that's how I look at combat anyway.
