Demonstrate Self Defence Techniques

Basic Knife Defence
In this situation the attacker has a dangerous weapon that threatens your life – so your response must be appropriate to the situation – always finish in a lock or having disarmed your attacker.

Important Principles

  • Steel beats flesh
  • If you can run – escape – if you stay you will probably get cut.
  • Protect Primary Targets First! – Primary targets cause death or total incapacity in a short time. Secondary targets take longer to cause death or total disability, and are survivable through the application of basic first aid such as the use of tourniquets or pressure. Primary targets are mostly contained in the neck and torso. Secondary targets are contained in the extremities such as arms and legs.
  • Minimize the damage inflicted on you – turn your palms inwards, protect your neck and heart with the Shield Hand.
  • Maximize the damage that you inflict – in a real situation don’t be nice – you are fighting for your life.
  • Use the environment if possible – use a handful of dirt, a jacket, belt, shoes, anything to even the odds.
