Alessandro Padovani of Safer Faster Defense works with you on knife training and demonstrates how to grip a knife in a defensive context. He shows the three ways to grip a knife. The hammer grip, where you hold the knife as if it were a hammer, is a strong grip but you lose some dexterity. In the Filipino or fencer grip, put your thumb on the spine of the knife. This grip offers reach and dexterity and is an intuitive way to use the knife. The reverse grip gives less reach but is also a strong grip. Take advantage of this knife training today.
