MEED Warriors traditionally live by the principles of improvisation and letting go, which are part of their unwritten codex. The specialty of MEED is to use the opponent‘s weapons and direct them against him or to use random objects from the environment as improvised weapons.
MEED warriors are not bound to a certain type of knife, axe, sickle or to their own weapons. They neither cultivate a special weapon culture nor do they carry any with them in everyday life. In civil life they are therefore usually not recognizable as MEED Warriors.
For long as a MEED warrior has not yet taken possession of a suitable object, he will choose a rather passive form of combat similar to LING LOM. If he already has obtained a weapon, he will not keep it for very long. During the fight he will try to switch between different weapons and even between weapon types to confuse his opponents.
Distractions and deceptions are an elementary part of this type of combat. The skill of an experienced MEED fighter in handling the blade is often compared to that of a conjurer who cheats his victim out of a fair chance to win or to a predator that reveals its claws only when it slays its prey.
Another special feature of MEED is the throwing technique, in which any knife-like objects are used as throwing weapons. It is historically handed down that Pahuyuth Free-Warriors made hand-length throwing spikes from branches or bamboo canes whose tips were charred to harden them. On contact with the enemy forces they were thrown at the opponents. Injuries caused in this way could be decisive for the course of the battle under certain circumstances.
