In a real situation that requires you to use a combative knife, your stance is going to be dynamic, but you should at least establish a solid foundation for practicing your knife-wielding tactics. You should maintain an athletic base with your feet staggered. This allows you to move laterally without any trouble and ensures that you won’t be thrown off balance if you dodge an attacker’s attempt to hurt you with his weapon. You should keep your opposite hand lightly balled and raised to your jaw bone like a boxer protecting his face. By doing this, you enable yourself to block incoming punches, stabs or swings by your attacker. Stance is vital to being effective with your combative knife.
