Now that you have a good understanding of what goes into defensive knife use, it’s time to start practicing your defensive responses for different situations. Michael Janich demonstrates some of the common attacks you might encounter and how you should respond. He emphasizes the need to make a crippling cut, rather than just a swipe. Remember that when you are defending against a threat, your goal is to escape unharmed, which means you’ll probably have to inflict pain on your attacker. You’ll learn how to control an attacker’s arm after they make a pass, and then aim for their most vulnerable points – the quadriceps, triceps and biceps – to put them down so you can escape.
