I have a problem with the live blade issue. If someone slips or the knife falls out and someone falls on it serious injury could occur. Since training is skill building you can make the rubber or wooden tanto attack more aggressive. A real attach with a live blade and the defender has a momentary brain freeze and someone could be badly injured or killed.

Just my thoughts.
