The motto of Ralph Thorn's school of combat knife throwing is "Any Knife, Any Angle, Any Position, No Games, No Gimmicks, No Limits." In this groundbreaking video production from Paladin Press, he proves it, teaching you a truly combative style of weapons throwing that isn't based on figuring out exact distances and numbers of spins and half-spins. In fact, Thorn has mastered a no-spin throwing style that cuts through the myth and hokum to show that there's no mystery or complexity to knife throwing: all you need are a few knives, a target and some practice. Relying on gross motor skills, Thorn shows you how to throw not only knives and swords, but also improvised weapons: if it has a point, you can get it to stick consistently and accurately. Using state-of-the-art computer graphics and super-slow-motion videography, you will learn the mechanics of the no-spin throw, the powerful sidearm throw for close-range fighting, the underhand half-spin throw, the shuriken throw for long-distance attacks and much more. Thorn also shows various trick throws, including blindfolded throwing, behind-the-back knife tosses and throwing accurately while going at a dead run.
Ralph Thorn is an author and illustrator. Since the release of the original edition of his book and the wide dissemination via the Internet of his self-produced video material, his no-spin style of knife throwing has revolutionized the sport and attracted the attention of numerous martial artists, performers and knife makers. Many consider him to be the best all-around knife thrower in the world. He is a native of southern Appalachia.
