A Killing Art : Wounding with Blades || Randy Packer

Randy Packer || Valkyrie Western Martial Arts Assembly || Vancouver, BC, Canada

Weapons: None

A look at the mechanisms of injury with weapons. What is a wound? What’s lethal, injurious, or ignorable? What causes an instant stop? How do the historical arts reflect this, and what do we look for in our own practice to reflect our own goals in training? A frank discussion of the realities of weapon use, looking past anecdotes and into anatomy to try and build better models of wounding for our own practices.
