I haven't heard of that one before, but there's a couple other older defense manuals talking about throwing swords.

One was from ~1410 and it showed throwing a longsword like an enormous lawn dart where you hold it a special way on the handle to get some spin. Why you would want to do this, the text doesn't say.

Another was from somewhere in the early 1600s and it talked about throwing your rapier at a hostile small crowd as a distraction to run away.

How'd you become a National Geographic explorer? I remember that was something I wanted to do many years ago before I put the idea to rest and it seemed like something that was impossibly difficult to get into.

So what was the process in becoming one?
