Inktober Day #28 - Bloody Brazilian Knife Fighting Techniques' Immobilizing Targets

Day #28 of Inktober ... October and Inktober closing out soon. What a spectacular sojourn this has been for me! Following up on my previous Inktober pictures focusing on targeting, today's pic is from Uncle Fester's "Bloody Brazilian Knife Fighting Techniques".

If you missed my previous Inktober pictures on targeting, please check out:

Below are some of my notes. HTH!

P. 6
For those of us who have faced knife-wielding assailants, there is a defining moment, that split second in which you realize you are facing ghastly wounding or death and you MUST act and act decisively.

P. 12
Know your targets - A knife allows one to flee, negotiate, hurt or kill the opponent. In contrast to a handgun, one can have, almost literally, surgical precision with it. A skilful fighter must have a thorough knowledge of human anatomy to be able to achieve the expected effect with each attack.

P. 20
Injuries on tendons, muscles or nerves - stop any bleeding by direct pressure and immobilize the limb. Protect the open wound with clean sterile dressing. It will be necessary to seek surgical intervention in a proper medical environment.

P. 25
Attack types

Knives and many other objects can cut or perforate skin and contuse. Criminals use the most diverse way to cause violence. Attacks can be categorized as:


Characteristics - The goal is to incapacitate the opponent preserving its life.
Targets - Ligaments, muscles and tendons. Avoid main arteries.

  • Eyes (avoid deep thrusts, superficial cuts)
  • Shoulders - muscles and tendons
  • Arms - Biceps and Triceps
  • Forearms - Tendons
  • Hand - Tendons
  • Knees - Tendons, ligaments (front and back)
  • Feet - Tendons and ligaments (front and back)

As always, I hope this project as well as my blog helps in your Training!
