Learning a new skill

So a few of months ago, I saw my capoeira instructor displaying skill with a straight razor (navalha) in a video posted on youtube. In hand and in foot, switching between the two. I was impressed, and also wondered why at almost 5 years (that was at the time I had be training) I had not known this before. So, about month ago I expressed a desire to learn this skill, as I had only heard of, read of, and seen videos of other people doing it. He showed me a thing or two and of course I wanted to see more. I'm glad to know that I will be learning some of these cool skills that I had only heard about. I'm looking forward to my first workshop/class on this skill as soon as  we get around to it.... It will also go well with all the bladed skills I'm also learning within escrima :-)
