A real how-to beginner's beginning guide to knife throwing using small Gil Hibben Cord Grip Throwing Knives from United Cutlery. Knife throwing has been known in circles of self-defense, martial arts, ninja, samurai, combat, the circus, carnival tricks, and people just sick of their knives.
This is an instructional video meant to give an idea of what to expect for people thinking or wanting to take up knife throwing. Professional knife throwers would probably be bored to death with this video since this one is for true beginners like myself. I have found that knife throwing is an excellent form of exercise -- a definite plus to consider for those thinking about taking up the activity. I would liken the physical consistency goals to be more like bowling or free throws in basketball rather than darts.
BE CAREFUL!!! Wood is a lot tougher than skin so make sure everyone is a safe distance away -- at least well behind the thrower. I guess cardboard more closely resembles skin and when I threw into cardboard almost every throw stuck with devastating effect (i.e. the blade penetrates to the hilt)!
Keep in mind that martial arts and self defense techniques and tactics should never be used in offense. It is a lesson preached and practiced by masters ranging from Bruce Lee, the monks of Kung Fu, and modern day fighting and defense instructors in the fields of Karate, Judo, Taekwondo, Jujitsu, Escrima, and others.
