This is part 2 of the sambucus nigra syrup making vids, apart from that this is also a stand alone vid of barechested(lol) me throwing a knife on a dead(!) tree, while havin a beer.
The throws i am practicing are not just knife throws, but i am trying out spinless knife throwing. It is a kind of special martial technique, where you try not to spin the knife. This way you can be more precise, get better and more accurate (sticking !!) hits.
As you can see, it aint that difficult at all. Spinless throwing usually requires more 'body movement' put to it. I compared it to the effect of a karate kick (waki-...whatever) where u need to put ur hip behind it in the movement to generate extra momentum, and thus kick u'r opponent waay harder than without using the extra momentum of ur hip.
Since i expect alot of shit about responsibility issues mainly regarding the beer+knife thing let me clarify some things:
-I have a first aid kit with me, sufficient to treat knife injuries.
-I am less than 1 km from civilisation.
-I know this place like the back of my hand.
-I have a cell with me.
-I have a PSK(Personal Survival Kit) with me.
-The tree is DEAD.
-I am belgian, i grew up on beer.
-Yes, i will lose weight, the beer helps with that :D
