Knife Combat - Knife Takedowns - 2 parts by Hock Hochheim
DVD or Download

Knife Takedowns covers takedowns with and while holding a knife. For the unenlightened, unsophisticated and untrained, it is hard to grasp the idea of grappling and takedowns while holding a knife. The sarcastic joke is just to "stab the person until he falls!" Not that simple. Not that crude. In the real and troubled world of fighting criminals and enemy soldiers there are a host of reasons and means why a defender must take an opponent to the ground for lethal and less-than-lethal ends. What are these?
Learn these reasons and means:
- How the "tenacity of life" keeps them on their feet
- How the "diminished fighter" can be grappled.
- Learn the basic knife takedown principles.
- Learn the Takedown Body Chart.
- Learn the Joint Crank and Joint Lock Progression and how and why knife applications may or may not work with them.
- Learn numerous knife combat scenarios involving grappling skills.

Knife Takedowns and Grappling represents Level 8 in Hock's Knife Fighting Series.

Knife - Speed, Flow and Skill Exercises and Drills - by W. Hock Hochheim (This is the first video of a two video set on this subject.) Hock teaches the classic speed, flow and skill knife drills that originate from various military and martial arts sources. They are all here for you, demystified, simplified and dissected in the way Hock is famous for worldwide. Learn the patterns and insert, 1/2 beat options. Here they are all together in one place. Hock took the time to demo many other drill/exercise formats and their options and inserts that have never been filmed before.

- Dodge/Evasion Edged Weapon Exercises
- Statue Knife Exercises
- Critical Contact Knife Exercises
- Grip Changer Exercises
- Counters to Common Blocks and the Outside Invasion Knife Series
- Panananstas Saber vs. Reverse Knife Workout
- Windmill Exercises (vertical and horizontal circles, chains and hubads)
- Give and Take Knife Exercises
- Sumbrada Knife Exercises
- Ground applications for all of the above
- Learn well over one hundred inserts, tips and advice

"These are isolated exercises as well as complete drill patterns. They prepare you for the encounter. I am NOT a fan of over-drilling at all, especially at the expense of other important training! So, I won't be emphasizing those aspects. 'All roads lead to Rome' and all these exercises lead to the combat scenario." - Hock Hochheim

The Invading Knife by Hock Hochheim
DVD or download

The Invading Knife video covers invading into a dueling, squared-off opponent with you attacking both with your knife and/or your free hand, into his “closed,” prepared fighting stance as he stands ready. "This video has been called a "hidden gem" by many, as it has been buried inside a multi-video series for some time. As a result, most people did not know it even existed. But it is too important a subject matter to remain lost there. So we are breaking it out into its own theme identity and entity." - Hock Hochheim

This production covers invading into a dueling, squared-off opponent with both your knife and/or your free hand. This involves attacking into the “closed,” prepared fighting stance, mostly dealing with the outsides and back hands of the enemy’s arms as he stands ready. Therefore, the video covers tactics and strategies from the ready position, through the invasion tactics and on to the first significant strike assault. Once into close quarters many more tactics open up, specifically those CQC movements inside the arms, then possibly takedowns and other finishes.

This video includes:
- Deceptions to Attack
- Strike from movement, luring, baiting, fakes and more...
- The Science of Obstructions
- Basic Invasion Training Drills Progression
- The Big Nine Knife Invading Skill Sets

I have been working and collecting these methods since the 1980s. Here they all are for you, all in one, streamlined, concise, demystifying film. No flash. No dash. No compulsion to replicate historical systems or pontificate on historical minutiae. Generic tactics. Just simply? How to duke it out with knives." - Hock

New! Push Dagger Training Film - DVD or Download
A Crash Course in Fighting with a Push Dagger Knife

The ubiquitous push dagger has been around in some shape or manner for centuries in various countries, militaries and martial arts. So deadly, so efficient, so ominous-looking, it is illegal almost everywhere. And then, with this illegality comes the lack of available training for its use when needed in self defense, crime-fighting and war. W. Hock Hochheim has researched the knife (and these other "punching" and "hammer-fisting," “fist knives,” and offers a practical and tactical training course for its maximum use in everything from applications to standing and ground combat scenarios.
