There are no winners in a knife attack. It is ONLY survival. And the odds are extremely stacked against you no matter which martial art you have studied or mastered. And I am always shocked at the real crap that is out there begin taught as knife defense. So today we are going to talk about some Pressure Point Knife Defense Rules to help keep you alive!
When you are searching the internet for knife defense techniques a lot of what you will see in the search results have been paid for. Dig deep for the information and realize that most of is absolute garbage.
What do pressure points have to do with knife defense? Actually not that much! These refer only to the best strike points and how to access them. It has nothing to do with the first part of the equation. That part is not bleeding to death.
But since I am a pressure point teacher I call this article "Pressure Point Knife Defense Rules." I could have called it Hapkido Knife Defense Rules too.
What you do not see will get you killed:
Today the people of the world are totally distracted. I do not drive any longer, and therefore take a bus often. On a city bus 9 out of 10 people are on their cellphones on Facebook. Totally oblivious to what is going on around them!
If someone comes at one of the technology slaves they will have no time to react other then to bleed! Today the world is getting much more dangerous by the day because of the enabling of mental illness (vs treatment). And because we have a legal system and not a justice system. Many criminals today get off!
Therefore this requires you to pay more attention than ever before!
Get out of the line of FIRE!
You are not there to fight! You are there to get away!
I see constantly, and I wish I could use the images of people defending by attacking in a straight line up the center, which the knife on the outside, against their own arm.
You realize the knife has MORE power when the attack pulls it back towards himself right? A knife will cut in every direction there is! Defending up the center is DEATH. Yes sometime it can happen. Especially when Pressure Point Knife Defense Rule#1 is ignored! But do not train this as a good example of defense!
Understand How a Knife Works!
You cannot use a gun in self defense successfully without training. Pressure Point Knife Defense is no different! Train with a steal knife, not rubber or wood. The brain reacts different to seeing a knife like the one above.
This is training to save you life and the lives of others. Don't be CHEAP! Get the proper equipment and learn how it works!
