Glad to have amused you !
You should understand that some folks think traditionals are totally outmoded and ridiculous .
Oh, the MMA vs No Touch Fu stuff.
There is a great deal of wisdom in the traditional arts. Real traditional arts come from real combat and self defence, whatever passes for them today.
In most of the internal arts there is good reason to believe very few can actually fight with it today. But the originators and early practitioners certainly did. Traditional Judo and Jui Jitsu ( traditionally taught together), Japanese and Okinawan Karate, Tae Kwon Do (ITF) and Royal Court Hapkido/Kuk Sool Won where you don't just train in forms but you have full contact sparring are very much for real, and associated with each style are weapons techniques and styles which preserve the techniques of how they actually fought for real. They use all sorts of primitive weapons. I wouldn't scoff at a japanese Iado sword expert or any of the many Philipine stylists who can turn sticks into deadly weapons, hit you twice and go home for lunch before you blink. Modern military styles like Israel's and Russia's are obviously designed to be effective, and they are often adaptations of traditional techniques. If you met any of the masters, you wouldn't scoff.
There are many real experts in all sorts of primitive weapons and knife fighting in the world's militaries as everyone knows. No doubt we have some members who fit the bill. I ain't one and I don't play one on the internet. But there is nothing wrong whatever in being interested in it and training in it. I used to love knife throwing and even axe throwing. I could usually hit and kill small game with a good rock. That doesn't make me a ninja.
Throwing a good knife is rough on the knife. That's why G-d invented throwing knives.
