Have you ever defended yourself from someone with a knife intent on killing or injuring you?
Are your theories derived from television, movies or magazines?
Be honest with yourself, knife fighting myths can be your greatest enemy, learn the basic facts.
1, Experienced fighters do not lead with the knife.
2, Experienced fighters will not leave the knife hand extended and stationary after a thrust allowing you the chance to apply a hold.
3, An experienced fighter will hit you with his free hand, it is not paralyzed, it takes guts to face someone with a knife or a broken bottle. Be aware of the easy solution, in Ryukyu kobudo, training is simple and direct, you should have the attitude that no one can stop you, never panic.
Practice direct no nonsense training methods. Think, observe and learn.
Remember this when you apply Ryukyu kobudo in your training.
Staying alive is the primary reason.
