  1. @a.few.good.knives


    I sent the Tengu Kudaki STRAIGHT THROUGH my target backboard TWICE as I was just beginning to learn these mechanics.

    Ace is dropping some serious knowledge bombs in these courses!!

    (Today I can say for the first time that I can generate enough power in my throws to actually scare myself a little bit, it’s remarkable… and addictive. I have to show more restraint than ever or else I know I could utterly destroy all of my targets in a single day)

    If you really want to take your throwing to the next level, you need a mentor/teacher to show you the way.

    I practice every single day on my own, during which I aim to achieve some measure of growth and progress every single day.

    I’ve never made as much progress in one day on my own as I did the very first time I began to digest and apply some of Ace’s lessons from this course.

    This is a very welcoming, easy to follow, and most importantly effective program that will get you not only on track with the Gunslinger throw, it’s going to help you grow and improve your throwing ways you almost certainly didn’t see coming.

    🙏 Thank you for all of the time and energy you’ve put into these programs Ace, I’m a better thrower today for it.

    Ace does an excellent job of explaining the No Spin Gunslinger throw.

    The tutorial is divided into lots of small segments that build on each other. Every beginner and experienced thrower will be successfully introduced to the gunslinger throw with this tutorial.

    Anyone can successfully learn this.

    This is one of my favourite throws, and it is a pleasure to be able share it.

    The underhand is a comfortable, natural way to throw. It is smooth and clean with the no spin technique demonstrated in this video and good detail of instruction is provided for the wrist action. This throwing form is also not stressful on the body or shoulder.

    This video takes you step by step and gives you informative exercises that naturally develop the correct technique. Ace even demonstrates adding different knife throwing styles into this technique, such as IVA and Scanf. Very thorough training video with a ton of information and history on the Gunslinger throw. Ace also discusses the Gambler toss and it’s history. Ilike it !

    Tactical lifestyle company Delta2Alpha has produced a considerable amount of knife throwing instruction (and throwing knives themselves) in the last year or two. Among the instructional videos (access to which can be purchased through the Delta2Alpha website) now available are their Gunslinger Method and Tsunami Method videos. As of this writing, I have viewed the Gunslinger training and three volumes of the Tsunami training.

    These are informal videos filmed in Delta2Alpha instructor Ace’s home — specifically, in the room he has dedicated to throwing knives. (I know a certain amount of jealousy; having my own “knife throwing room” certainly sounds like something appealing now that I’ve seen one.) Much more importantly, though, Ace is a calm, steady presence, an engaging instructor who is clear in his language and who does not beat around the bush.

    There are two approaches to teaching in a short-format seminar or class. One is immersion, in which you throw a BUNCH of stuff at the student. The student is typically overwhelmed and maybe picks up some percentage of the material along the way, in kind of a catch-as-catch-can fashion. I would characterize, say, a typical Dan Inosanto seminar as taking that approach (and I don’t prefer it, having experienced it for myself).

    Ace, by contrast, takes the other approach. He builds methodically, from start to finish, from simple to more complicated iterations, clearly explaining what he’s doing and why. The various volumes of Delta2Alpha’s instruction do the same at the macro level.

    The Gunslinger method, for example, is all about underhand, no-spin throwing. Ace explains the knives best suited for this type of throw and then repeatedly demonstrates how to do it, step by step. The repetitions and drills help the viewer to “get” what’s happening and, most importantly, you can see the full scope of what Ace is doing: grip, stance, body mechanics, the knife traveling to the target, etc. All the action happens in one room and the camera is catching it all simultaneously, which is an excellent approach. In multiple drills, Ace works toward his goal, explains advantages and disadvantages, and gives credit where credit is due.

    The Tsunami Method, by contrast, is all about bo shuriken, or throwing spikes. Ace explains these (and has an impressive collection of them). If you can throw a bo shuriken, you can throw a nail (and vice versa). How is throwing a bo shuriken different than a knife? Ace explains that the difference comes down primarily to weight. You can do things with lighter bo shuriken that you can’t with a knife (including using increased arm movements to guide the shuriken where you want it). If you try to use the same method you use with knives with bo shuriken, you run the risk of causing them to fishtail because you’re throwing with too much power.

    Volume 2 of the Tsunami Method is much the same, but now the topic is a detailed exploration of side-arm throw variations with bo shuriken. Volume 3 brings us full circle and teaches us to use the Gunslinger method with bo shuriken (in other words, an underhand throw).

    These are clear, easy to understand videos that offer excellent instruction. Knife throwing is one of those things (like knife sharpening, honestly) that some of us can do well… and some of us always seem to find more art than science (and thus, we can’t do them all that well). If you’re keen to learn knife throwing you will do well with these, and if bo shuriken interest you, you absolutely want to watch the Tsunami volumes).

    All in all, this was a fun and informative way to spend the time it took to watch these videos. Highly recommended.

    Ace’s instructions are clear and complete in this video. It was a pleasure to see the process that brings together such a powerful motion. I liked the gambler’s toss so much that I bought 9 inch high boots just for this purpose haha!
