Inktober Day #8 - Michael Janich's/MBC's Knifefighting Stance

My 8th picture for Inktober is posted 2 days late :( Not easy to draw a picture a day it seems for me LOL

"Knifefighting:  A Practical Course" (1993) by Michael Janich
Pages 15-18


  • Similar to boxing stance
  • Strong-side forward
  • Hands held lower
  • Use all of the body's weapons in conjunction with the knife
  • Feet shoulder-width apart
  • Turn both feet slightly to the left, bend knees, raise left heel
  • Tuck chin in slightly, raise right shoulder just a bit

  • Positioned close to your body near the floating ribs


  • Left hand along the left side of neck
  • Back of hand and forearm faces opponent
  • By turning he back of the forearm out, it protects the blood vessels and flexor tendons on the inside of the forearm

My drawings for Inktober 2017 - drawing at least 1 pic each day in October:

NOTE:  Posted 10/10 as-of 10/8
