Disclaimer graphic material knife attacks as described during this week’s training.
We have spent this entire week training against knife attacks. Every single one of these attacks should look familiar to the defenses we practiced against knife attacks. This is how violent people attack in real life just as described during our training.
The attackers tries to close the distance to get into close range, and goes for circular attacks either high or low. When defending against a knife it is imperative to create distance from the weapon. If the attack is in close range first the defender will have to create a shield (360 defense) and create distance by striking. If the defender can see the attacker start to close the distance then kicking first and creating distance would be more appropriate.
If you want to learn real effective self-defense come train at Art of Survival Krav Maga where we only spend time on real attacks that happen in real life.
