Knife Defense

Fancy stuff doesn't work during a real attack with a real knife. The balance, tone, and rhythm alone make things unpredictable, confusing and scary.

Alright, let's talk about defending yourself against a knife attack when you're unarmed.

Firstly, it's crucial to maintain distance and avoid getting cornered. Keep your chin down to protect vital areas and ensure your wrists are not turned outward, with your hands up to shield your face and throat.

Your elbows should be tucked in to safeguard your torso. Remember to stay mobile, moving your head and body to evade the attacker's strikes.

When facing a knife-wielding assailant, utilizing improvised defenses can be effective. For instance, if you have a hat or a bandana, use it to distract or deflect the attacker's strikes.

This could give you an opportunity to grab their wrist or disarm them. Expect to get cut in the process, but aim to minimize injuries to critical areas.

One useful technique, taught by Mike Griffin, involves forming an "O" shape with your hand to intercept the knife thrusts. By positioning your hand in this manner, you can block and control the attacker's blade, potentially enabling you to disarm them or create an opening for counterattacks.

Remember, the goal is to neutralize the threat and disarm the attacker by any means necessary, utilizing whatever improvised tools or techniques are available to you.

Stay focused, stay agile, and prioritize your safety above all else.

Here is a technique that is simple, effective and used by law enforcement, military, & security today!
