comment Martial Arts Technique Against Knife Attack
{nods} Even mentioning in your answer that the episode in question (even better if you can link which episode it is) talks about how bodyguards are taught Krav Maga to defend against knife attacks is a step in the right direction.

I'd advise that you expound a little bit about what the querent is likely to learn from the book.

In such a situation, assuming that Gun Fu is not an option, I recommend a judicious retreat. 2-3 people is bad odds to start with. Add weapons and you would have to be lightyears ahead of them to come out unscathed.

comment Does anyone actually fight with two katana/samurai swords simultaneously?
@TimothyAWiseman: You can read a decent translation of The Book of Five Rings at uvm.edu/~asnider/IDAS_2011_CD/Teachers/… wherein he specifically refers to "the long sword and the sword" that are carried and how to fight with them.

@TheWudangKid: He and I talked for a bit over chat. He really is curious as to whether there is a viable style involving two full-sized katanas. I don't believe that there is, although there are examples of people doing kata and there are, of course, fictional examples a la Leonardo.

comment Wing chun - practising
If you poke around a bit, you should find resources online for solo Wing Chun drills such as londonwingchun.co.uk/5-best-exercises-improve-your-wing-chun. You might also consider investing in a wooden man training dummy.

Frankly, I say see a doctor for this to ensure that you don't have any sort of lasting injury from this.

"better" involves a comparison between two choices. There is no defined pair of choices here.

comment What martial arts are similar to Systema?
The other thing that makes it confusing is that one of the most popular ninjutsu-based styles is the Bujinkan system, so you may be thinking of that one (the other one that most people are familiar with is Stephen K. Hayes and his combination of mail-in instruction and books and his Shadows of Iga society).

Wad, can you clarify your question for us, assuming that you wish to continue asking it?

comment “Modern” Boxing Gloves & Punching Technique
Based on the Wikipedia article at en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boxing_glove, it looks like Broughton's gloves in the 18th century provided the basic design that's been used ever since.
