Many of you have definitely seen Captain America: The Winter Soldier. And if you’re a Filipino martial arts practitioner (like me) or a knife fighting enthusiast (like me again), I’m sure you’re also wowed by the Winter Soldier’s awesome and drool-worthy knife skills.
Look how he tosses his knife up in the air like he’s flair bartending or juggling. Insane! Goose bumps. Yeah yeah, it’s unrealistic and impractical. But hey, it’s visually stimulating and entertaining like most action/superhero movies are.
No wonder, the knife fighting scenes in the movie turned out to be fluid and ahh-mazing!
While I enjoyed the Winter Soldier’s character, I loved Black Widow more, who’s such a bad-ass fighter. Maybe more on her next time.
UPDATE as of August 15, 2014:
Take a peek at the Winter Soldier’s knife fighting training:

Because I get a lot of “Winter Soldier knife” and “knife used by Winter Soldier” inquiries, here’s where you can buy Bucky Barnes’s dagger. It’s The Gerber Mark II, according to Wikipedia. Happy now? You’re welcome! 😀
