How to Throw Edged and Improvised Weapons for Sport and Self-Defense
by Michael D. Janich
With the help of ultra-slow-motion photography and computer animation, knife expert Michael Janich teaches you the secrets of weapon balance, spin and throwing distance and shows you how to apply them to accurately throw and consistently stick knives, tomahawks, axes and a variety of other purpose-designed throwing weapons. Janich demonstrates both blade and handle throwing methods and shows you the intricacies of half-spin, full-spin, one-and-a-half and double-spin throws. He then teaches you how to apply these same principles to common, everyday objects to turn scissors, screwdrivers, chisels, tire irons and even ballpoint pens into potent improvised throwing weapons. This is the most complete instructional video on weapon throwing ever produced and the only video to realistically address the use of throwing weapons in self-defense situations. For academic study only. Color, approx. 60 min.
