Nobody has ever done combative knife tactics better than Bob Kasper. The Lost Tapespreserves Kasper's definitive modern American combative knife curriculum for generations to come. It carefully pieces together Kasper's lifelong study and instruction of knife combatives from years' worth of VHS home movies and seminar footage that had been boxed and stored in a shed after Kasper's untimely death. 

Based on his teachings at the Gung-Ho-Chuan Association (GHCA) , this video begins with the basics of stance and grip, covers brutal snap cuts and thrusts, moves on to the importance of startle cuts in your repertoire, demonstrates blade-blocking maneuvers and teaches stress draws to enhance action when one is under violent attack. Designed to enhance awareness and develop an appreciation of distancing, positioning, and unarmed skills, Kasper's vicious Street Series knife attack and defensive techniques use violent smash-and-slash reality-based training to mimic encounters most likely to be encountered in the streets. 

The Lost Tapes contains some of the most true-to-life combative instruction ever seen in the Paladin Action Library. For information purposes only.


Bob Kasper was an avid practitioner of the martial arts for more than 30 years. A former U.S. Marine Corps military policeman and U.S. Army Reserve cavalry scout, Kasper was a founder and director of the Gung-Ho Chuan Association, a brotherhood of Marine Corps veteran close-combat instructors; and founder of the American Karate Jutsu Association. He held black belts and instructor ranks in several martial art disciplines. He died in 2006.

Stickgrappler's Note: I am guessing the Paladin site will be shut down at the end of the year and I'm archiving select Paladin Press pages to my blog to preserve an essential part of martial arts from 1970-2017. Archiving some of my favorite Paladin titles.
