This is really more of a triva thing but it's bugging the hell out of me. I don't remember where, but I remember reading something to the effect "...for a martial artist, dropping the knife is a serious consideration; there are 6 (stab/slash/...) basic moves one can perform with a knife in hand but 16 with an open hand; they are: check/grab/block/..."
I don't remember where I read it (so I can't remember if it's credible) and I can't remember the exact list of moves. Can anyone help me out with my memory lapse? Also, would you agree with the spirit of the quote?
