Gangsters breaking into your house, pulling you out of your automobile, threatening your family…this is a worst thing that can happen. Mind you, I am not telling you how to do violence in this article, I just want you to survive as best you can. Before I go on with this subject, I recommend you look into a serious martial arts school to further your learning.
These are dangerous times. If the police report in your weekly newspaper, filled with drug deals and muggings, doesn’t scare you, then the general shape of the world should. Talk of terrorists, stories of civil unrest, these are realities in our world.
If somebody pulls a bladed weapon and comes at you to start knife fighting, you have to be aware that there are three potential movements that you have to face. There is the obvious poke and cut. Then there is the not so obvious stroke with the butt of the weapon.
First thing, beat feet and get the heck out of there. Run, scream as you do so. Screaming rape is something everybody should be capable of.
Second, grab something, anything, a stick, a chair, a lamp and wave it violently. Maybe you don’t know how to use it, but once the mugger knows he isn’t going to get your money and your life without working for it, he might bug out. Seriously, I knew a fellow who was jumped by a bunch of muggers, and he chased them down the street by waving a plate at them!
Third, even a piece of clothing can aid in your knife defense. If you can slip out of your jacket and whip it around your arm, you have protection. If you can your belt out of the loops you can use it for a whip, and snap the thing towards his eyes.
Third, your back is against the wall, there is nowhere to run…what do you do? First, remember that he has to reach you, and that means he is going to have to stick out his arm. If you can body hug that arm, you might take a few cuts, but you have immobilized his weapon to some degree.
The things I’ve shared here are desperate measures, they are strategies that you pull out of the hat after the fit hits the shan. They happen after you should have been prepared, if you get my drift. If you are serious about how to knife fight, the best place to start is a good martial arts school.
Fighting with a knife is dangerous. Be certain the course you take has solid concepts with expert instruction. The
