    Those are my two favorite scenes in the movie. Good to hear that a chick flick is more than just mindless entertainment–it’s also teaching women to defend themselves. 😉

    I agree with how knives can be an advantage for the victim. Even at my school when we practice knife defenses, the “attacker” seems to forget that he has three other available limbs and relies on the supposed safety of the knife. Our master’s mantra is “Control the head of the snake”–and then quickly take care of the surprised attacker.

    Hi Leslie,

    Sandra Bullock is one of my favorites so I was glad to find a way to weave this into the blog. Your Master sounds like a wise person… it is good to stay focused on the mechanics of the defense! I like the emphasis on the “Control the head of the snake.” :)

    Sometimes you have to fight, even if they have a weapon. Almost always in the case of the attacker trying to take you to a secondary location, where your chances of survival are slim. Fight while there are still potential witnesses around, and fight loud and with no mercy.
