Some of the pages still need a password, but I think they're working on it. Most of it is open.

Like the article on Jelly Bryce best. It's an interesting site to say the least.

Thank you for posting this site, as a wannabe medic I realize the validity of these attacks and the fact that if it comes down to it, these techniques will work. Very interesting and loved the references there. Thanks again. -Lyle

That has to be one of the best sites on "unorthodox" fighting there is. Glad it is finally back up!:lifter

Anyone have any strong opinion of weak lead vs. strong lead when knife fighting/edged weapons engagement? Long ago, I was taught the weak lead approach as depicted in one of the pictures on the Gutterfighting site. (The Applegate Method). I understood and appreciated what I thought was the reasoning behind it, and considered it superior due to the mindset of protecting the weapon at all cost. That said, over the years I've trained quite a bit in Kali and have very much changed my tune. After once completely adopting the weak lead concept, it was a struggle for me to adopt Kali's approach. My training partners and I have sparred many times in various combinations of weak vs. strong, and haven't found a single reason for utilizing a weak lead. We're all heavily biased toward the strong side due to our Kali backgrounds though.

Help me consider the valid points of the weak lead.

Thanks for the link. I particularly liked the story about Jelly Bryce, an 'old-school' FBI agent and legendary gunfighter.
