First Time Training
« on: September 19, 2005, 07:31:49 AM »

New to the martial arts and self defense, but I have always loved knives since I was a kid.  Wanted to learn how to use one effectively since I cannot carry my handgun everywhere ( I do have a permit).  I just started knife training this past weekend with Mario Leone in Bridgeport Connecticut.  Mario is a great guy and really took his time teaching me Hock's system.  It was evident that he enjoyed what he does and really is an excellent teacher.  I have never done anything like this before, but damn, I really loved it.  I don't know if Mario is going to see this, but I just wanted to say thank you and that I look forward to our next training session.

So you're one of those nutty people that thinks playing with knives is fun :).

While the ultimate bottomline is self-defense learning the body mechanics and psychology, developing the reflexs and coordination that result in appropriate defense/offensive reactions is a challenging but rewarding experience.

Enjoy the journey!

He enjoyed it rather throughly. I also explained to him the Level of seriousness in his training. Less than lethal methods as well as Lethal.
