If you've ever wanted to learn how to throw a knife, axe or tomahawk, here's your chance. With the help of ultra-slow-motion photography and computer animation, knife expert Michael D. Janich teaches you the secrets of weapon balance, spin and throwing distance and shows you how to apply them to accurately throw and consistently stick knives, tomahawks, axes and a variety of other purpose-designed throwing weapons. Janich demonstrates both blade and handle throwing methods and shows you the intricacies of half-spin, full-spin, one-and-a-half, and double-spin throws. He then teaches you how to apply these same principles to common, everyday objects to turn scissors, screwdrivers, chisels, tire irons and even ballpoint pens into potent improvised throwing weapons. This is the most complete instructional video on weapon throwing ever produced and the only video to realistically address the use of throwing weapons in self-defense situations. For academic study only.


Michael D. Janich is one of the foremost modern authorities on handgun point shooting and one of the few contemporary instructors to have personally trained with the late close-combat legend Col. Rex Applegate. In addition to making his own martial arts equipment, noted martial arts author and instructor Michael Janich has designed and engineered everything from blowguns to knives, including the highly acclaimed Masters of Defense Tempest folding knife.

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.
