Order the NEW Comtech Bowie Explained DVD Directly From COMTECH /
While I was in Oregon with Mr. Keating in October of 2015, in addition to the AmEurAsian Fencing Seminar video we also filmed a DVD called the Comtech Bowie Explained that covers some of the what, how, and why questions that we frequently are asked like:
“What's the history behind all this?”
"What gear do you use?"
"How do you practice with it?"
"Why do you do certain things the way you do?"
This New DVD is an attempt to answer these common questions and look at some of the larger concepts behind the Comtech Bowie Knife Method.
To be clear, this is not an instructional tape in the sense of showing you "how to use a Bowie knife", so it is not for the uninitiated but the trained man.
If you want to learn all the footwork, the evasions, the unseen angles of attack, the correct timing and so on that make the Comtech Bowie Knife Method unique then you need to study Mr. Keating's 6 part American Blade Craft series. If you call him to place your order you can get those from him also!
(And please, remember the time difference when you call, he's on the West Coast. Respect his time, eh! And be extra nice to Norma Keating if you speak to her, she's one hell of a Bowie fighter able to dive in under your guard with a low Pasatta Sotto and spring away in the flash of an eye - I've seen it!)
Additionally, when it comes to technical Bowie study there is my own 4 part Bowie Combatives DVD series and Modern Knives DVD #5: The American Bowie where this material is all covered in detail!
This new Comtech video is more of a thinking man's lecture with Mr. Keating which features active demonstrations of the various concepts. These are all things you should know if indeed you seek the art as Comtech shares it! From there it will be up to you to employ this information to advance yourself to the next level of skill with the Bowie, using this knowledge to help guide you on the correct path.
I think you will enjoy this latest offering and we look forward to sharing the Advanced Deceptions & Master Plays of the Bowie with you in a future presentation (hopefully next year!)
All my very best to you,
