Nobody has ever done combative knife tactics better than Bob Kasper. The Lost Tapes preserves Kasper's definitive modern American combative knife curriculum for generations to come. It carefully pieces together Kasper's lifelong study and instruction of knife combatives from years' worth of VHS home movies and seminar footage that had been boxed and stored in a shed after Kasper's untimely death.

Based on his teachings at the Gung-Ho-Chuan Association (GHCA) , this video begins with the basics of stance and grip, covers brutal snap cuts and thrusts, moves on to the importance of startle cuts in your repertoire, demonstrates blade-blocking maneuvers and teaches stress draws to enhance action when one is under violent attack. Designed to enhance awareness and develop an appreciation of distancing, positioning, and unarmed skills, Kasper's vicious Street Series knife attack and defensive techniques use violent smash-and-slash reality-based training to mimic encounters most likely to be encountered in the streets.

The Lost Tapes contains some of the most true-to-life combative instruction ever seen in the Paladin Action Library. For information purposes only.
