Like everyone else my system and myself practice knife dis-arms, but rarely do ever have the experience of doing one for real. Yesterday at Old Fort Mac days I actually had someone pull a bayonet on me and i applied a knife disarm and it worked!!!. This is what happen, I was on guard duty for my unit (The Philippine Scouts Historical Society) my job was to challenge any WW-2 re-enactor or pirate for their pass , if not then I would escort them to my commander. This is done to cause some small commotion like an in-prom-to play and have visitors come in to our camp to our display. I was equipped with my WW-2 web gear, my 45 replica and my aluminum Bolo that I got from Robert Ulep.  I had challenged a member of the Imperial Japanese military unit .  Who was reluctant to stop, so I removed my aluminum bolo from its sheath and laid it on his right shoulder  and started to escort him toward our camp. He then turned and I heard him pulling his bayonet from it sheath on his left side. I stepped to my left coming around  behind him quickly grabbing his bayonet that was now out of it sheath and stripping it from him and the same time a putting the tip of my Bolo to the angle of his jaw. This all happen in real time (no slowly staged demo)! I walked him into the camp and tossed his bayonet into the dirt marking the tip stuck in the mud. My commander asked who was his commander and where was he so he talk with him,. Just side note the events are very big on safety and live steel is not to be drawn except for pictures!! Needless to say my commander had to have words with his commander about this breach of etiquette. But the long and the short of it is that knife disarms can work when practiced.
