When you find yourself facing an opponent armed with a bad attitude and a knife, your only hope for survival is a solid grounding in realistic knife tactics and the fighting spirit necessary to make them work. In this groundbreaking video, JKD expert Joe Maffei rips away the myths of knife combat and shows you how to combine technique, physical attributes and attitude into the ultimate edged-weapon system. Featuring graphic footage shot on location in back alleys, swamps and prison cells, it shows you what it's really like to fight with and against edged weapons and why many commonly taught techniques can get you killed on the street. It also reveals how Maffei integrated his Brazilian jiu-jitsu training (learned directly from Rickson Gracie) with edged-weapons tactics to create a revolutionary knife-grappling system that has previously been taught only to his private students and the U.S. Army Special Forces.

FutureWeapons is an exciting new series that takes the viewer into the macabre and secret world of weapons development. Ex- Navy SEAL Richard Machowicz "Mack" takes us on a wild ride in his search to find the ultimate weapon. It's a journey that will take us around the globe as Mack tracks down the most lethal and the most sinister weapons yet devised. The series will explore the science and technology that goes into making the latest weapons - and we'll meet bizarre characters who spend their lives inventing new ways to obliterate the enemy. Mack gets 'hands on' with the weapons and tries them out for himself: firing anything from smart missiles to futuristic lasers. "FutureWeapons" has already lined up a series of world scoops - revealing test firings that have never before been tried or seen. The series is formatted into six compelling themes: "Stealth", "Smart Weapons", "No Place to Hide", "Maximum Impact", "Future Shock", and "The Power of Fear". Each program will leave the viewer gripped, fascinated and perhaps even shocked! Upload by Bidesigner

Death by Moderation: The U.S. Military's Quest for Useable Weapons
Cambridge University Press 2009 | 288 | ISBN: 0521119510 | PDF | 1
This book addresses an important but little-noticed phenomenon in the revolutionary world of military technology. Across a wide range of otherwise-unrelated weapons programs, the Pentagon is now pursuing arms that are deliberately crafted to be less powerful, less deadly, and less destructive than the systems they are designed to supplement or replace. This direction is historically anomalous; military forces generally pursue ever-bigger bangs, but the modern conditions of counter-insurgency warfare and military operations "other than war" (such as peacekeeping and humanitarian assistance) demand a military capable of modulated force. By providing a capacity to intervene deftly yet effectively, the new generations of "useable" weaponry should enable the U.S. military to accomplish its demanding missions in a manner consistent with legal obligations, public relations realities, and political constraints. Five case studies are provided, regarding precision-guided "smart bombs," low-yield nuclear weapons, self-neutralizing anti-personnel land mines, directed-energy anti-satellite weapons, and non-lethal weapons. ...

The German Third Reich had the most technologically advanced and innovative weapons industries in World War II, with aircraft, tanks and bombs that could match and beat anything else in the World. What is less known is the extent of Germany's secret weapons development. Germany pioneered rocket and jet-propelled aircraft, the pilotless plane, long-range rocket technology and 'robot bombs', and the world's first super-heavy tanks. Many of these weapons had a real impact on the course of the war. Following the invasion of the Soviet Union and the realization that the war could continue for years, Hitler put great resources into the development of new and technologically advanced weaponry, in the belief that the production of 'wonder weapons' were the key to winning the war.

Banning Weapons of Mass Destruction (Praeger Security International) by Frederick Mattis


Publisher: Praeger | 2009 | ISBN 0313365385 | PDF | 142 pages | 12 MB



The threat of weapons of mass destruction is still viable, and unless proper motions are made to prohibit this, global safety is still at risk. Prior arms control agreements have moved humanity within striking distance of global prohibition, yet these weapons of mass destruction remain. This enlightening work discusses original principles for a treaty banning nuclear and chem-bio weapons worldwide. Mattis argues that a proposed new nuclear treaty, replacing today's inadequate 1968 Non-Proliferation Treaty, would demand unanimous accession by States which must be achieved before such a treaty enters into force. By asking essential questions, and offering value-creative proposals for nuclear treaty provisions, this work offers a clear path to the daylight of worldwide weapons of mass destruction prohibition.

This documentary is counting down the top 10 deadliest Kung Fu weapons and fighting techniques. The Kung Fu documentary shows uses of famous Chinese weapons, including rare and unconfirmed weapons like the flying guillotine.

In Chinese, Kung Fu can be used in contexts completely unrelated to martial arts, and refers colloquially to any individual accomplishment or skill cultivated through long and hard work. The origins of Chinese martial arts can be traced over 6,000 years ago to self-defense needs, hunting activities and military training in ancient China. Hand-to-hand combat and weapons practice were important components in the training of Chinese soldiers.
