COMBAT KNIFE THROWING
Combat knife throwing can be use in short distance from the target, for creating the time and space to deploy a secondary weapon or to evade.
Why is happening in close distance?
Because is very hard to hit a target that has unpredictable movements from a big distance.
Combat Knife throwing is not spectacular, the goal is to be efficient.
The Hollywood industry was creating a false idea about combat knife throwing. Of course that is existing the probability that the knife throw that you perform in close range can kill the target by the main function is to create the time and distance that you need to deploy the secondary weapon.
For example imagine a scenario with multiple aggressors and one of them is coming to smash you the head with an metal baseball bat or maybe to stick the knife in you( put also that you are with your child or family).
The most important thing is to be able to identify a potential threat, than to be fast enough to deploy your weapon in time, and after to be precise in your strike( this is applying also in fire weapons).
Make sure that if you throw your knife you have other weapons or tool that you can use to not remain with empty hands.
Of course is depending also what laws you have in your state country, in many places fixe blades are illegal.
