Sword vs Knife fight Video

Here’s something you don’t see every day: Two guys fighting, one armed with a knife, the other one with a sword.
WARNING: Very Graphic content
Common sense would dictate that the man with the much larger blade, fighting out in the open with room to move around, would have a clear advantage. We don’t see the complete incident but we see the knife wielder cleverly closing the distance to negate the reach advantage of the sword and use his knife. We also hear what appears to be a parry so the knife wielder is probably skilled in its use too.
But the video also shows how important mindset is. We talk about mindset often and we understand its importance, but here you see it live. The swordsman was unsure about using his weapon after they get up. The man armed with the knife didn’t have such reservations and was far more committed to the fight.
Something else that comes to mind, the importance of an hemostatic agent such as Celox in an EDC bag. A knife wound, gun shot wound, terror attack or accident on the street, any of these can leave you bleeding to death and the tool to stop that from happening can save your life.
Take care folks.

I'm pretty sure the sword wielder was thinking 'Why isn't this person running away from me - I've got the bigger blade !' I agree - the knife person must have serious confidence facing off with person and sword. The sword (vs. a fencing foil) is clumsier and takes more time position.

Thank you for the link sir - definitely something you do not see everyday.

I once worked in a violent, drug infested section of Phoenix, Arizona. One time I walked to the convenience store. (Circle K) for a coffee. The guy at the counter told me that 1 hour earlier two guys fought each other in the parking lot. He saw the whole thing. One had a big 10 inch blade. The other guy had a small 3 inch blade. He said that when they started he was sure that the guy with the big blade was going to win. But that didn't happen. The guy with the small blade stabbed repeatedly while the other guy swung widely. It was over fast, big blade guy dead, small blade guy got away.
