New currency mod to Budoshop

I just added an exchange currency mod to the store. It means that when you add stuff to the shopping cart, you will see the price in SEK, and EUR, GBP, JPY and USD for totals. Note the currency is retrieved from Yahoo Finance on the fly. If you experience that it takes to long for the pages to load, please contact me and I will make it to Ajax script instead. I didn’t notice it tooks longer to load, same speed more or less.

Note this is only in the shopping cart, so add stuff to the cart if you want to see the prices in EUR, GBP, JPY and USD. is up and working again

When upgrading the store one of the files was overwritten so that most links didn’t work, the top menu also disappeared. All this has been fixed now!

I did not notice this myself because I had the site in cache and didn’t think about it. If you have problems with the web site, especially if it doesn’t work, please, please, please let me know!!!

On the 10/11. December 2005. a seminar with the theme “Tactical Knife Combat” was hold within the organization of Specwog, in Zagreb. The seminar was led by Specwog Chief Instructor Dean Rostohar where he taught his Tactical Technical Combat System.

The knife is a weapon that we can encounter every day and it’s one of the most dangerous weapons, especially in the hands of an expert. The knife is also one of the basic weapons and tools of elite Special forces, and is an obligatory part of training.Knife fighting is, by it’s nature, dirty, dangerous and deadly.

In order to know how to defend from a knife, it is neccesary to know how the knife functions and how to fight with it. Unfortunately, with increasing crime rate, the number of victims of knife attack has also increased, what we can see every day in the media.

However, the knife is also a great self-defence mean in the situations of ultimate neccessity. There is no efficient defence against the knife, if you don’t understand this weapon.

This seminar was dedicated to combat tactics with a knife. Through various combat technics and drills with a knife, the students was learned tactics of fighting with a knife. The combat technic drills are very important in tactics of knife fighting because the drills teach us how to manipulate the knife, how to properly move, properly use our body and knife in exercises without a partner. Drills also teach us how to react properly, and to train and learn our movements and reflexes in exercises with a partner, so that it would be useful in possible combat.

All aspects of fighting with or against the knife, technics with standard and reverse knife grip, basic cuts and stabs, the ways of carrying and drawing the knife, tactical movement, tactical grabbing of the attackers weapon, taking attackers attack into a trap, the technics of immobilizing with a knife, tactical reflex drills, entering and dynamic attack with the body, the principle defence=>attack; attack=>defence, tactical disarming with the knife, using body with knife technics, etc. was shown and trained on the seminar.

In order for someone to know how to use the knife as a mean of self-defence, he has to know how to combine the technics with a proper psycho-physical attitude.
