More Nicholaes Petter training today, 4 fucking hours of it with several guys from around Texas.  Basically it was dagger disarms.  I enjoyed it, it was much of the same training I had received before, but fighting unarmed against a guy trying to stab you in the face or guts or crotch is hard (strangely enough eh) so I can use the repeat training.  Also, joint locks, finger crushing, etc.  I have probably a dozen deep bruises brewing all over me, just waiting to turn colors. 

The best was at the end the round-robin, where everyone got in the middle on their turn, and everyone else surrounded them with knives and one at a time rushed in at them, stabbing or slashing at them at wherever they wanted, and the guy in the middle had to neutralize them and disarm them and immediately take the next comer, about 7 of them all in a row.  It was intense.  I hope we do that again, it really opens your eyes to how just rote memorization and repetition of disarms and knife-attacks are not going to work when done full 100% speed.
