Contemporary Knife Targeting: Modern Science vs. W.E. Fairbairn's Timetable of Death

Availability: Ready to download

William Fairbairn's Timetable of Death has been used for years as a standard reference tool by students of edged-weapon tactics. When Christopher Grosz began studying the timetable to validate its use as a reference for law-enforcement responses to edged-weapons attacks, he made a surprising discovery - the information in it was flawed. Grosz began a thorough analysis of F William Fairbairn's Timetable of Death has been used for years as a standard reference tool by students of edged-weapon tactics. When Christopher Grosz began studying the timetable to validate its use as a reference for law-enforcement responses to edged-weapons attacks, he made a surprising discovery - the information in it was flawed. Grosz began a thorough analysis of Fairbairn's work, human anatomy and the realities of effective knife targeting. He later teamed up with knife expert Michael Janich to document it all in this book. Research was conducted with the help of recognized experts in both the medical and tactical fields. The result is a modern, medically accurate version of Fairbairn's original timetable - plus contemporary self-defense applications of the updated data - that will become the new definitive resource for all students of edged-weapons tactics.

    This book is a scientific examination of William E Fairbairn's 'timetable of death,' a list of the major blood vessels of the human body and the the amount of time incapcitation or death would occur after they have been servered. Using modern medical research the authors clearly disprove the over optimistic timetable given by Fairbairn and replace it with a more accurate and extensive timetable. What follows after is an application of this information to defending against knife attacks and using This book is a scientific examination of William E Fairbairn's 'timetable of death,' a list of the major blood vessels of the human body and the the amount of time incapcitation or death would occur after they have been servered. Using modern medical research the authors clearly disprove the over optimistic timetable given by Fairbairn and replace it with a more accurate and extensive timetable. What follows after is an application of this information to defending against knife attacks and using the knife as a defensive tool, with Janich explaining his approach to knife fighting which emphasizes disabling body structures such as important muscles groups that will stop an attacker more quickly (often immediately) rather than purely lethal strikes that will take longer to incapacitate an attacker (even if they will eventually lead to death). In short, it is better to eliminate an attacker's ability to punch lethal holes into you all together than it is to focus on punching lethal holes into the attacker that will kill him but leave him able to kill you at the same time. This was a short but highly informative read and I strongly recommend it to any student of the knife or personal defense.
