Mad Dog Knife Fighting!


Knife Attacks if You Don’t Know Anything!

Good Lord…
I am living in the Dojo in the Sky!
That’s what it is up here at Monkeyland,
and I wish you could all be here!
But,
if you can’t,
make sure you work out!

Your body is the temple,
so make sure it is pure
and deserving of you!

Okay,
I’ve got the samurai sword book on hold.
It’s just too busy,
too many things happening,
so it will be a few months.

I’ve got an author signing
coming up end of May
down in Santa Maria.
Gonna be fun.

And,
I’m trying to get my books in Barnes and Noble,
that is taking some work,
so I’m too busy to do the sword book.

Heck,
you can’t just snap out a book on
how to handle a samurai sword.

So,
that said,
let me at least talk about knife attacks.
I just wrote a guest blog
for SwordsoftheEast,
and I go into how to handle a knife attack
if you don’t know NUTTIN’

So here are the salient points.

First,
if somebody comes at you with a knife,
back up!
Create some distance!
Throw stuff at him,
knock stuff over so he has to step around,
and YELL.

Especially if he says not to say anything.
Heck,
if somebody tells you not to yell,
they are scared of yelling,
so…YELL!

Second,
if you can,
wrap something around your arm.
Your jacket,
a shirt,
even just hold a pillow.
The idea is you want the guy to cut that,
not you.

Third,
there are many ways to hold a knife,
but the two basic ones are:
with the knife coming out of the ‘thumb end’ of your hand,
the sharp edge down.
Could be down or up,
but down is better for any
up and down motion of the hand.
And:
with the knife coming out of the bottom of the fist,
the sharp edge facing away from your knuckles.

The idea here is to slash back and forth,
as you try to get away,
and if you need to use the knife,
you can just punch,
and the blade is projected as part of the punching motion.

I know,
there are a lot of holes here,
but the idea is to cut without being cut,
to get away,
and remember,
I am offering this
as if you are a novice.

Okay,
here’s the important stuff.
If you can’t yell or avoid,
and if you see the knife fight is going to happen,
then you have to change your mental attitude.

DO NOT become a victim.
Spit in his eyes,
throw the change in your pocket at his face,
and when he flinches,
kick him.
And when he lowers his hands,
poke at the eyes.
And when he protects the eyes,
kick him,
and so on.
Go up and down,
do what he doesn’t expect,
set him up,
and get…MAD DOG!

You have to offset the idea
that he is more deadly
because he has a weapon.
You have to.
So mount some viciousness.
Go after him.
Bite him.
Get…MAD DOG!

I knew a fellow once,
he was jumped by three fellows
while he was moving out of his apartment.
He grabbed a dish,
A DISH!
and he went after those suckers,
screaming and yelling,
chased them down three flights of stairs and down the street.
In his mind,
he was angry,
enraged,
and his dish became larger than their knives!

And that’s what YOU have to do!

Remember,
one fellow doing right in his life,
is worth ANY number of people
who are doing wrong.
That is ethical,
and it is right,
and you have to be willing.

Got it?

Okay.

And,
the last thing…
if you plan for something,
it probably won’t happen.

I can’t tell you the number of people I’ve taught,
who said they were scared,
were in situations,
and after they started,
those situations stopped happening.

So go learn something.
Educate yourself.
Take a class,
even a seminar,
on knife fighting,
or other weapons.

Educate yourself.
That will get you to the frame of mind you need,
to the techniques and body condition that you need
to survive.

And,
take it from me,
a guy or girl like you deserves to survive.

and do an extra week of spring break work outs!

Take care.
