    Thanks for a realistic perspective on this topic. I often see videos on knife defenses that make it seem easy to defend against one. Nothing could be further from reality. Probably, at best, even Bruce Lee would get stabbed half the time. Your suggestion of a long range powerful kick, perhaps to the knee, makes a lot of sense.

    Great information John. One important and perhaps the most important aspect of first defensive movement is that of critical distance. Moving out of range and/or at an angle that forces your adversary to make adjustments to his/her position in order to attack. This give you that little bit of extra time to make decisions to reach for or pull your own weapon or use kicks or move for your defensive attack. Leg kicks are a great option for defense too. They will slow slow attacker down and even take him out. Also they will bring his focus to your feet giving you more opportunities to get inside, strike and gain control of his weapon.

    Thanks for the tips. I like that you say that the best thing to do when confronted with someone with knife is to ran away! This is the obvious thing to do and yet most instructors aren’t even advising this. Of course they may be times when this is unavoidable, if you’re cornered or if you’re with someone who can’t ran very fast, for example.
