Hey, I may be a bit late on this subject but better late then never right? I currently train in the use of the japanese weapons ranging from the hanbo, tanbo to the tonfa and to blades. I'd like to say that I actually find the 4 count to be really effective. I've trained it before and can't say how many times durring a sparing match that by changing up where you strike has saved my (theoretical) life. I'm not the greatest mind you and mostly grew up doing stick fighting with freinds but I will say that repitition kicks in. If you are thinking about learning something such as how to use a machete as a weapon then you need to consider training. Compare the training required for a weapon like the machete to using a bow. If you don't keep practicing then you will get worse and worse.

Diluted. To not prepare for all circumstances is to prepare to fail.. However, That video is hilarious!

I agree one should prepare for all scenarios but there is no way I'm getting into an edged weapon fight period. I would book it in the opposite direction if someone came at me with a knife.

sometimes the baddies don't give you a chance to make that choice,like yesterday,one of the tenants living at this place,took out a knife and attacked another tenant...bloody hell it has never happened here,but the guy on the 3 floor is a black rastafari type and the guy he attacked is a senior citizen,brave dude :(
and guess what the police did when they came......nothing...I thought you could trust our police here,not any more...

That is a complete failure on the people that were attacked. When I'm out in public I'm always in condition yellow, sounds like those folks were condition white.

If you're paying attention you'll be watching others, you also won't let people get into your personal space like that.

The following is from The Carry Book: Minnesota Edition, 2011:[6]

  • White: Unaware and unprepared. If attacked in Condition White, the only thing that may save you is the inadequacy or ineptitude of your attacker. When confronted by something nasty, your reaction will probably be "Oh my God! This can't be happening to me."
  • Yellow: Relaxed alert. No specific threat situation. Your mindset is that "today could be the day I may have to defend myself". You are simply aware that the world is a potentially unfriendly place and that you are prepared to defend yourself, if necessary. You use your eyes and ears, and realize that "I may have to shoot today". You don't have to be armed in this state, but if you are armed you should be in Condition Yellow. You should always be in Yellow whenever you are in unfamiliar surroundings or among people you don't know. You can remain in Yellow for long periods, as long as you are able to "Watch your six." (In aviation 12 o'clock refers to the direction in front of the aircraft's nose. Six o'clock is the blind spot behind the pilot.) In Yellow, you are "taking in" surrounding information in a relaxed but alert manner, like a continuous 360 degree radar sweep. As Cooper put it, "I might have to shoot."
  • Orange: Specific alert. Something is not quite right and has your attention. Your radar has picked up a specific alert. You shift your primary focus to determine if there is a threat (but you do not drop your six). Your mindset shifts to "I may have to shoot that person today", focusing on the specific target which has caused the escalation in alert status. In Condition Orange, you set a mental trigger: "If that person does "X", I will need to stop them". Your pistol usually remains holstered in this state. Staying in Orange can be a bit of a mental strain, but you can stay in it for as long as you need to. If the threat proves to be nothing, you shift back to Condition Yellow.
  • Red: Condition Red is fight. Your mental trigger (established back in Condition Orange) has been tripped. "If 'X' happens I will shoot that person" — 'X' has happened, the fight is on.

I do know those conditions,but here in the cold north (not so cold right now) we have what you could call insanely stickt gun laws,same with the blades..and here we used to trust our neighbors,that's why things like this kinda surprize.
our criminality was,well very very small scale.
and I don't need to be told about loosen your gun laws,that's not gonna happen here,we are right now in a battle against EU burocrats when they try to ban all semi-auto's here...and have a big amount of muslim invaders too,some call them refugees...

what I carry on me is a totally different thing,some tools belong to my EDC,something is on me.
