[YT]http://youtu.be/DYGUoZyJs18[/YT] I think I embedded that right? http://youtu.be/DYGUoZyJs18 EDIT: 75,000 volts. My bad. So we all know that plastic floppy knives don't work for self defense, and a real knife you can't train with without dying. So what about a knife with 75,000 volts of electricity coming out of it? Its called "Shocknife" Do you think that would have any benefit to the self-defense minded martial artist? You could go FULL force against someone, practice all the fancy disarms or whatever and see what works and what doesn't. They only thing I could think of is you know in your head that its going to hurt bad, but you know you won't die, which may cause you to be more ballsy then if it were a real knife, and give a false sense of security and get you killed (which is why I would still run even if I did have some sort of magical knife training) And to throw out the obvious, It's STILL the best idea to just run away from a knife, but would you try it? I personally think it'd be cool to have a couple laying around in my gym.
