Hock,
Could you bring at least one of the signed, full color ones to the "Way of the Knife" seminar? It'd be great reading material while I'm recovering each night in the hotel room. If it's too much trouble, I'll just order one when I get back. Thanks!

(Congratulations on getting it done!) ;D

Cool!

My mailing address is in Florida now, even though I'm still working in Mississippi. It'll be much easier on me to just get the book at the seminar.

Gives me even a better reason to make (I mean let!) the young'uns drive on the way back.

Should be there between 6 and 7 PM tomorrow night.

See ya!

This looks absolutely awesome Hock!  Make sure to bring a stash of them to London in September.  I'll be ordering my copy next week!

Back from a successful knife seminar in Independence Mo. (in attendence were some very influential, heavy hitters from the US Army) and once back, I discovered an overwhelming, OVERWHELMING response (orders that is) for the new knife book. Overwhelming.

We are trying to fill these orders as soon as possible. Please bear with us.

Thanks so much for your support on this.

Hock
(ps...please let me explain. Ink costs more than gold. Ink is responsible for the pricing of the book. We have over 1700 photos and 70,000 words, 300 pages. I wish it were $9.95. But the ink?.....)

Are you kidding?  This book is a steal at $55.00 as listed.  In fact, when you buy this book and see what is actually in it you will feel as though you have gotten away with robbery for a mere $55.00.  Although I don't have my copy yet, the last time Hock was here I got an insider's look at most of it that he had stored on his laptop.  In years to come when this book is hard to find people will be selling it for $350.00 on E-Bay.  Get it while you can for a mere $55.00. 

Hock, you are selling this book way too cheap!  Are you nuts?

Great stuff, Hock! You have wrote a masterpiece. There is no book that has more comprehensive detail on knife fighting such as this one. As a matter of fact, it kept me busy when I was waiting all day at a hospital as I took my buddy/co-worker for a procedure. I was totally engrossed in your book all day and not yet even finished (lol). Great war stories too as well as old manuals including the ones from my old USMC LINE manual.

Hock's book is the THEE best knife book EVER.  The Forward is sobering and shows he knows from experience what knife fighting is and is not.

First Paragraph goes like this....
"Knife fighting is not an art.  Or a hobby.  Or an interest.  It isn't fun.  Nor is a bullet to the brain or a broken leg with an exposed, splintered bone through the flesh.  If you think it is, then you need your head examined or a real dose of reality experience"

From there, it just keeps getting better and better.  Stories are awesome, research and "how to" knowledge blows away the knife experts I've ever been exposed to.

Thanks Hock!

Hock's knife combatives also fills out and addresses something that is missing in most knife programs, fighting with a knife when on the ground or other uncomfortable positions.

THE BOOK LOOKS GREAT. JUST WHAT I NEED FOR MY LIBRARY, AS I AM JUST GETTING INTO KNIFE DEFENSIVE MEASURES. THE PRICE SEEMS REASONABLE ALSO, BUT UNFORTUNATELY THINGS HERE AT HOME ARE TIGHT.  HOPEFULLY SOON I CAN AFFORD TO GET A COPY. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.

 Hey Hoch & Everyone:

     The book arrived today.............I think you out-did yourself on this one.  I used to nag you about re-publishing the old Knife Fighting Encyclopedia, well...you don't need to do that.  This is just a great course and falls into the category of 'Professional' material for those whose livelyhood takes them into the world of combatives. There is just not any foolishness in this one at all.  The introduction really makes one think and put this 'knife fight' stuff in the right perspective.  The real-world historical examples are an espacially interesting aspect that everyone needs to read.  Replacing the ole Angles of Attack with the clock system is something that will have more standard use worldwide, particularly with the military.  Putting this book in a spiral binder is really usefull when you take this book to the training hall. It allows you to lay it flat and work directly from the page.  Indeed this has been a long time in coming. These days I spend a lot of time in the 'Martial Art' & 'Historical' aspect and the associated lack of reality that tends to exist there.  That said it is very comforting to know that I've got this
'Dose of Reality' on hand should I ever have to go back to or teach any of the 'Professional' aspects.  Thanks so much for writing this book. I'll have your copy of my Staff Book on the way in a couple of days.

All My Best
Dwight

I bought the book a few weeks ago, and to be honest I didn't know what to expect.  I have an extensive martial arts library and, frankly, the vast majority is useless garbage.  I have been conditioned by the subpar norm to be very skeptical and to expect to be disappointed.  This manual is an exception, to say the least.  Without a doubt the most valuable and practical book on the subject I have ever seen.  A generally adroit and fit person without martial experience can actually learn something applicable from nothing but this manual and a willing training partner.  I got the first DVDs as well, and will buy the rest of them ASAP.

I teach traditional Chinese martial arts and also generic self defense classes at various local parks & rec and community centers.  Many of the attendees have asked for knife instruction, but I've had a difficult time making the traditional material relevant to modern situations (not to mention the giant knives!).  I will certainly be attending seminars and seeking instructorship, as this material is exactly what the soldiers, police officers, and little old ladies in my classes need.

After considering the Contemporary Knife Targeting book I mentioned in the other thread, I went ahead and decided to pull the trigger on a copy of Hock's book, instead. I'm sure it'll fit the bill for what I was looking for, and then some. My wife suggested that I get the color copy, just to "make sure I'd be happy with it".

I love it when she does stuff like that.
