Misconceptions about Knife Attacks

Misconceptions about Knife Attacks

The 13 Misconceptions about knife attacks, what you don’t know can kill you… Below is a list of misconceptions people have about knife attackers. This article was written by retired police officer Kara Borshuk. Kara served on the OPP, Windsor and Detroit Police Forces.

Misconception #1

Surviving the Threat

Surviving the Threat

You’re going to have time to draw your own weapon

In all the times I have been assaulted with knives, only once was I able to pull my own weapon. I had repeatedly practiced speed drawing. I could, in a crisis, draw in just over one second. And yet, despite this incredible rate of speed, when attacked I didn’t have time to draw my gun.

That’s because by the time I realized there was a knife involved, I was already being attacked.

Most knife “fighting” training is predicated on the assumption that you have somehow managed to get a blade in your hand.  If you are attacked by either a young punk, a total incompetent.  Even someone who was brandishing the knife in order to get you to back off then there is a chance that you might have time to draw you own weapon.

However, if you are dealing with anyone with any experience, street savvy or cunning, you will not be able to draw your own weapon when you are attacked.  Against such a person, there is just not enough time. He won’t show his weapon  before he attacks. That’s because those who are foolish enough to brandish weapons  in places where weapons are common don’t live long themselves.

Misconception #2

It’s going to be a knife “fight”

Not to be the bearer of bad tidings.  But the reason someone uses a weapon on another human being is to stack the deck in their favor. People don’t use weapons to fight, they use weapons to win. The absolute last thing any attacker wants to do is to fight you with equal weapons. If he was looking for a fight he wouldn’t have attacked you with a weapon in the first place.  If he knows you have a weapon he is going to attack you with a bigger and better weapon! This is to keep you from winning.

You pull a club and he pulls a gun. There is no fighting involved, you use the superior weapon to disable your opponent. And you do it before he does it to you. As far as your attacker is concerned this is not a fight, it is an assassination. He is not going to want to stand there with you and hack it out.

Unfortunately, this is exactly the fantasy that many so-called knife fighting instructors promote. The absolute last thing you want to do is to try to “fight.” There is another reason that you need to chase the idea of “knife fighting” out of your head.  In many states there is this attitude that “consensual fights” are best resolved by throwing both of the morons who participated  in jail. Contrary to this belief, you have the right to defend yourself.

Misconception #3

But what if I’m cornered?

Common sense tells us that knife fighting is dangerous. And yet, many people who train in knife fight have the same torn desires. One of the biggest issues goading these people is “Do they have what it takes?”.

Human beings have the ability for self-deception and rationalization. Such people strongly resist the idea that knife fighting is a bad place to go. It is literally as though they are seeking to find an excuse.

One of the strongest indicator of this fantasy mindset is the reaction when they are told to flee instead of fighting with a knife.  literally the next words out of their mouths will be “But what if I am cornered and can’t run?” There are many such similar excuses that they can use.   They all start with the word but: “but what if I am with old people or children and can’t run?“, “But what if I am out of shape (or in-firmed) and can’t run?” In all cases, of the millions of possible options  available they always seem to focus on the one that requires them to engage in a knife fight.

Truth

The truth is, it is incredibly difficult to “corner” someone who is determined to leave. Basically because he will use your face as traction or squirt through the smallest of holes.

However, if the person’s desire to engage in physical violence is stronger than his desire to leave, it is very easy to corner someone. If you ask any experienced  Law Enforcement Officer, or mental ward orderly which they would rather face.  Ask them, a person who wants to fight them, or someone who will pull a weapon? They will tell you the former. They know the latter will hurt them more. Plus be harder to defeat. That’s because that person is fully committed to a course of action.

Whereas a person who has allowed themselves to be “cornered” will still be of a divided heart and therefore not able to fight at full capacity. And that is exactly what it will take in order to survive such a “no win” situation that they have put themselves into. That is the true danger of this kind of thinking. Because part of you does want to know if you have what it takes and “can do it,” you can unconsciously trick yourself into not taking appropriate precautions and ignoring danger signals. Your pride and ego will blind you about what you are doing until it is too late.

Don’t fantasize about being in a situation where you have to use your knife fighting skills, because you can end up tricking yourself into just such a situation by blinding yourself to possible escape routes.

Misconception #4

Kyusho Jitsu Knife Defense

Kyusho Jitsu Knife Defense

He’s going to attack you a certain way

It’s always better to presume that you will be fighting a trained “knifer.” The problem with that assumption is that not everyone attacks the way that someone trained will attack you. This is problematic because the counters maneuvers against how people trained “knifers” will attack you, with these kinds of attacks, the counters work don’t always work effectively.

The bottom line is, in the Western culture, someone who is attacking you with a knife is attempting to murder you. They are not going to be hanging back cautiously in fear of your weapon and your fighting skill. Instead they will usually attempt to overwhelm you and quickly kill you by whatever means necessary. Such an attack is totally different than the well balanced training. Understand it is totally different than how someone trained or a gang members will attack you with a knife.

Also consider training techniques from all over the world Asia, Germany, South Africa, China, Venezuela, Best to study different knife fighting systems and techniques.

Just because you know how to handle one, doesn’t mean you know how to handle the others. Each are different, and each are equally lethal. And those differences CAN kill you.

Misconception #5

The Perpetrator is going to passively stand there while you attempt to disarm him

What few people realize is that a wild perpetrators have intent He/she previously orchestrated the plan ahead of time, their intent is to rob or murder to get away. They want to commit the crime intended leaving no witnesses and leave as quickly as possible. Defensive flailing while holding a knife, is just as dangerous and damaging as an intentional strike. Even more dangerous because the attacker is unpredictable, his defensive moves can hurt you badly you will either get mauled, if not killed.

Fights are never static and his ability to move is his ability to hurt you. Your best defence first and foremost is distract by conversing with the perpetrator, and observing any window of opportunity to react effectively.

Misconception #6

Trapping and stripping

Disarming is something that is commonly taught at higher levels. Subtle and complex moves are drilled into the advanced students so they can either knock the knife out of their attacker’s hands or carve the knife out of his hand. They have very little to do with actual knife defense and very much to do with keeping  the student involved in the system and keeping up with changing times.

The thing is even the older masters tell you that these moves are purely opportunity and chance. In truth, unless an attacker is drunk or pathetically slow the odds of successfully catching his hand and doing all these marvelous joint locks or controlling moves are very, very slim. Furthermore you are not going to be able to effectively control a wildly struggling opponent’s arm with only one hand. Odds are that he will be able to wiggle free of it and cause you some degree of damage.

While there are things that you can do that will give you momentary advantage, what you can do is create an opening, enter and then prevent him from countering. If you are able to disarm an opponent whether by leverage or your own blade, a quick knockout or break will disable him.

Misconception #7

Misconceptions about Knife Attacks

Misconceptions about Knife Attacks. Young guys fighting in the street with knifes.

Understanding the Laws of self-defence vs Weapons disbarment

I have seen this idea seriously misinterpreted and bandied about by those ignorant of the laws, precedents and legal nuances regarding use of lethal force. And the only time you are justified in using lethal force in most states is when you are “in  immediate threat of death or grievous bodily injury.”

In other words, if it is bad enough where you have to use a weapon on someone, ask yourself, is it bad enough to kill them. If you are at a point where you are just trying stay alive are you in enough danger to justify using a weapon. People would shoot an intruder and then tell the police that they were only trying to wound him. This left them open to all kinds of criminal charges and civil litigation from the person they had shot.

There is a natural hesitation to take another human life. However, when this manifests in seeking to “wound” someone in order to make them “go away” you end up in a very dangerous legal grey area. And the fact that you were even in a situation where a weapon was used is going to make that grey area more dangerous.

Misconception #8

Stick-fighting means you know how to knife fight

“People claim that a stick is an average weapon. That it has similarities to all weapons. This is true, it does. But then they claim that if you know how to use a stick you can use all weapons. This is not true. What they don’t understand is that the differences are just as important as the similarities.”

Just because you are proficient with one type of tool doesn’t automatically mean you can translate that skill to another weapon. The simple truth is that different weapons handle differently. The have different weights, different sizes, different timing, different requirements and different uses. There are indeed certain similarities, but unless you want to end up kneeling in a dark parking lot trying to hold your guts in, you had better stop telling yourself about the similarities and start looking at the differences.

Sticks Don’t Have an Edge

To begin with a stick doesn’t have an edge. A blade with a the point and the edge are critical components. Edge control is pretty much the indicator between someone who knows how to use a knife and a stick jock trying to tell you that he knows knife work. If you know what to look for you can spot the difference with just one move even if it is a fast one. In fact, the faster the move, the more obvious it is.

The physics of a stick do not require this exactness of edge control. This is because a stick is an impact weapon, were as a blade is designed to cut, slice, stab and sometimes, hack. Therefore if you do not have your edge on target, then you create a totally different set of physics and reactions other than the one you want.

If you are learning stick fighting then accept that you are learning stick fighting, that is a legitimate pursuit. So if you are learning knife work, then you are learning knife work while there are similarities there are radical differences. The differences especially become manifest when your weapon encounters flesh.

Misconception #9

Grappling with a knife

The myth of grappling is that it works everywhere. The fact that it proved so successful in martial art Dojo has blinded many people to the fact that there are critical differences between fighting barehanded and fighting with weapons. While empty-hand fighting might easily turn into an endurance marathon, where size, strength, physical shape and ability to endure punishment  significantly influence the outcome of an altercation, that is not applicable to weapons work.

What makes you think you can keep on fighting with that kind of damage being done to you? All a guy has to do is cut you a few times to seriously reduce your ability to move and then wait while you bleed out. Now the really bad news, being pumped up on adrenaline is going to make that happen faster,  the higher your heart rate, the faster you bleed out and lose strength. All he has to do is out wait for your strength to fail before finishing the job.

Do NOT Grapple

Do not attempt to “grapple” with a knifer. Once on the ground, you are not guaranteed to be able to control his knife arm well enough to prevent him from carving you up. If it were a barehanded fight, then you can often prevent him from being able to generate enough power to effectively strike you, but a knife doesn’t need power, it just needs to touch you. And if you are attempting to control his arm while on the ground, he will wiggle free and repeatedly cut you until you can no longer continue to resist.

I know of a small knife being manufactured that is called the “clinch pick.” It’s a small concealable and easily accessible knife, that can be rammed into a grappler’s guts and chest three or four times before the grappler knows it is there. Where it is carried makes it nearly impossible for the grappler to prevent its deployment. When you realize he has it, it is too late.

Misconception #10

Knife Attacks

Knife Attacks

The knife is an extension of your hand

This is a lie most often promoted by empty-handed stylists who insist that they can teach you how to either defend yourself against a knife or to use one. Unfortunately, many people who started out in such systems have transferred over to supposed blade arts and continued promoting this often misinterpreted saying.

Empty hand fighting is not the same as weapon fighting it requires different body mechanics, different ranges , different timing and most importantly an emphasis on movement that is not found in most kicking and punching arts.

The problem is that most empty handed fighters lack the understanding of how to generate force from a moving state, instead seeking to generate force from a stationary stance. While this works for barehanded fighting styles, it fails to address the needs of weapons fighting.

In these circumstances your not being cut relies on you speed and reflexes, rather than more reliable means. Basically, because you might not be fast enough to counter, parry or block what he is doing.

Misconceptions of this thought process of empty handed fighting into a field where it does not belong, or work. The only thing the knife is an extension of is your will, everything in between  my will and my knife will be likely to move to achieve my ends. And that is far more effective for staying alive

Misconception #11

Expect to get cut

A knife is going to do a shitload of damage, people can talk about the damage that a knife can do but unfortunately they know little about the real confrontation outcome. It’s a real ordeal “expect to get cut” they talk so casually as though  getting cut were only a minor inconvenience.

You can’t fight an armed opponent in the same way that he would an unarmed opponent.

If you are cut in a blade altercation you must not to panic!  When it happens know  that you must continue to the best of your abilities. This in order to increase your chances of survival.

Hanging back and trying to catch this fast moving blade so you can safely enter. This  is one of the best ways to make getting cut minimal. Use distraction by continued communication all while exploring your surroundings for escape routes and possible resources to your disposal.

Misconception #12

Drills teach you how to knife fight

Drills teach principles mostly used as a map, not the territory.

One of the most unrealistic tendencies that drills teach is they do not teach you proper ranging. The object of an attack is to stab/slash your partner. However, often in training you will see people standing back. They are ranging their attack against their partner’s stick or their training knife. They are falling at least a foot short of their partner. Furthermore they are not attacking with the same commitment and force level that a real knife assault will occur with. Therefore the training drill, while important is missing several critical components.

 

Misconception #13

You can successfully fight an armed attacker

This is a lie.. you cannot “fight” an armed opponent. You can survive against one! You might even be able to successfully put him down before he causes you any major damage.  However whatever you do, it must be fast, effective and brutal. If it isn’t, then you will not stop him before he causes you major damage. You cannot stand there and engage in a long, drawn out contest with an armed opponent. If you try to do so, you will lose. It is not a matter of if, but when.

If confronted with an assailant!Or find yourself in situation know if the blade touches you.  Know  any knife he will cause serious damage. How can you hope to launch a long drawn out retaliation against him? How can this happen when every time he touches you he causes damage? You are going to bleed out!  Hence cease to function long before your strategy comes to any form of successful escape.

In conclusion please keep in mind

The problem that I have encountered with bullies is that they are very selective on who chose to bully. I have seen individuals who have savaged weaker opponents / victims. These individuals may have taken blades away from intimidated kids. But somehow they never seem to be around to try it against someone who is an experienced and able to handle themselves.

If you think that knife attacks look anything like those typically seen in martial arts classes or favourite movies you are dead wrong.

Real attacks, by people who are familiar with a knife’s properties and true potential. Their stabs and cuts that are practically impossible to stop.

An attacker, with any idea of what he or she is doing, will overwhelm you with a hail of cuts.  These will start at the nearest body part and end in a vital target. Within a second you may lose your fingers!  Have severed tendons of your arms, and be finished with a stab to your eye, or throat, or trunk.

Get as  much knowledge as you can prepare yourself on techniques of weapons fighting is to your benefit.  Observe prison inmates and knife experts practice knife fighting. See what really works and what doesn’t against a knife attack! Stay safe and use proper judgments when leaving yourself vulnerable in the streets.

Intellectual Pursuit

Intellectual Pursuit

Intellectual Pursuit

Intellectual Pursuit

Kyusho Jitsu is an Intellectual Pursuit. This is one reason it is not for everyone.  Some people look to the arts for philosophy, I know I was once one of those people. Others look to it as a brute force endeavor, which is also OK. No one is wrong, ever! We all reach the destination by a different path.

Understanding the Body

Kyusho Jitsu is a quest to understand the human body and how it works.  If you understand how the body functions you increase your ability to control an attacker, or harm it when need be. Others just prefer to strike the body as often and as hard as they can. However that can lead to other issues, such as over use of force and subsequent jail time. But people all make their choices in life right?

Personally I prefer to understand the laws of how the body functions, and deal with things that way. This also includes an understanding of how an attacker thinks. This makes Kyusho a very well rounded addition to the any martial art. The more well round the training, the better the chances during an attack.

Right now I have a brand new very special video available for you. It is an extension of my eBook called Humane Kyusho Jitsu.  This eBook deal with conflict that begins at low escalation and progresses to high escalation. The video enhances this eBook, but also stands alone.  It goes into detail on how to control a situation from the get-go, which will then allow you to control the escalation, and end it if need be.  This also keeps you are the right side of the law!

Humane Kyusho Jitsu Companion Video

What makes this work so important? As I read many martial artist posts and opinions I see a lot of ego, a lot of tough guy mentality. Now if you guys wish to beat each other stupid it is a short trip. However I have notice that for many the ego flares with ZERO consideration of the consequences of their actions. That make this video an Intellectual Pursuit also. For the rest of us who want to be safe, not dead or in jail.

Neurological Knockouts are a Cornerstone

Neurological Knockouts are a Cornerstone

"<yoastmark

Neurological Pressure Point Knockouts are a Cornerstone to success in Kyusho Jitsu, therefore are critical knowledge. Over the years they have become VERY controversial,  however I have done a lot of work to end the controversy.  The main reason that people doubt these knockouts is just bad explanations and bad marketing, but now is time for change.

Understanding Knockouts

There is much more to a Kyusho Jitsu Knockout than people realize. There are 2 basic causes that are attributed to Kyusho Jitsu Principles as well as MEDICAL reasons. When you discuss them, teach them, both causes should be addressed.

I have spent many, many years perfecting my own techniques in doing Neurological Knockouts.  However I am also a person who keeps copious notes, which allow me to share my knowledge with my students!

Why Medical Knowledge?

There is a very important reason why you need to understand, and hopefully teach the medical aspect of knockouts. When you only understand the “kyusho” theories you will find your confidence in certain knockouts may be low. This causes a high failure rate! Knowing and understanding the medical reasons, will help build your confidence, thereby increasing your success rate!

Getting Started

What is the best way to get started in understanding Neurological Pressure Point Knockouts is to join our FREE 3 Video Mini Course. This can be accessed via the LINK HERE at Kyusho Jitsu University.

This mini course will lead in to our FULL Kyusho Jitsu Neurological Knockout Course at KJU. You can get started with this course for ONLY $2.97 for your first 30 Days. Here is a link to more information.

Understanding Neurological Knockouts

Understanding Neurological Pressure Point Knockouts eBook is highly focused on the medical aspects of knockouts.  This book will tell you all about “one hit” knockouts points.  According to my students, this eBook is an important work for your Kyusho Jitsu library.

Advanced Kyusho Jitsu Principles

Kyusho Jitsu Principles

Kyusho Jitsu Principles

A few weeks back I was going through some of my older video series and found a few real gems! A series of 5 videos on some Advanced Kyusho Jitsu Principles! I had forgotten these even existed. So I decided to edit them and make them available to everyone for a limited time.

So what is in this Advanced Kyusho Jitsu Video Series?

Understanding and Using the Diurnal Cycle

24 Hour Diurnal Cycle

24 Hour Diurnal Cycle

In Video #1 on the 24 Hour Diurnal Cycle which is a complex principle in Kyusho Jitsu which  goes hand in hand with principles like The Cycle of Destruction and Attack using Yin and Yang.  The 24 Hour Diurnal Cycle concerns the direction of chi energy flow in the body. This is then tied to each element by the meridian and then a time of day when the energy is at it peak. However the understanding of this takes some time, therefore this is a very important video!

Pressure Points of the Head

Pressure Points of the Head

Pressure Points of the Head

Video #2, which is not a Kyusho Jitsu Principle, however the Pressure Points of the Head are critical for successful self defense. These are touched upon during the Novice learning time, but become a very important focus during advanced Kyusho training.

Many of these points are Knockout points which only require a single strike to be effective! Now when I refer to single strike I am referring to a one hit knockout!  For more information on these kinds of points visit this LINK.

Microcosmic Orbit Basics

Microcosmic Orbit

Microcosmic Orbit

Video #3 on the Microcosmic Orbit is actually one of the Kyusho Jitsu Principle above 10. This principle is based on energy flow in the body and requires some work to implement. There are 2 different Micros Cosmic Orbits in the body both of which can be used to increase your own chi levels.

The Quadrant Theory

The Quadrant Theory

The Quadrant Theory

Video #4 on the Quadrant Theory is also one of the Kyusho Jitsu Principle above 10. This is also one of the most effective principles once understood fully. It is based on the idea that different areas of the body are “allergic” to other areas. Not this is not actually the case, however this is the type of reaction you get when applying the principle. The Quadrant Theory is way to increase the pain level of any technique to un-imagined heights!

Kyusho Jitsu Principle Cycle of Destruction for Emotions

Cycle of Destruction for Emotions

Cycle of Destruction for Emotions

Video #5 on the Emotions is a very interesting one! There is a Cycle of Destruction for Emotions and in this video I really get into it! The principle is fascinating to work with, however caution needs to be used with this one as it is very powerful!

Now for some really great news! I released these videos a few months back, for a limited time, until the new series is complete, and have been selling the set for $25.

But TODAY ONLY, in honour of the

We have launched a exciting NEW option at Kyusho Jitsu University which is called the Virtual Classroom. The idea behind this is too teach a pressure point class via Skype in someone’s dojo or training hall. All that is needed is a laptop, a decent internet connection and a large TV monitor if possible!

Virtual Classroom

Virtual Kyusho Classroom

Our First Virtual Classroom

On Saturday September 16th we are going to be doing our first pilot run of this new program.  I have an advanced Kyusho Jitsu Study Groups at my Dojo in Windsor Ontario Canada and they will be the first group doing the test run with me!  From what I have been told everyone is very exciting for this event! It has been more than 18 months since I was last in the country, and as one of my last acts before leaving I did a pressure point workshop for them!

I will be working with Masters Riccardo Pappini and Louise St Jacques , Certified KJWA Teachers, to decide what materials I will cover based on where the students are in their current studies. I have the feeling I will be covering the Kyusho Jitsu Principles from 6-10 and perhaps even going into Alarm Points.  The time set aside for this class is 2.5 hours.

After this session is finished I will be giving a report on how things went on the Kyusho Jitsu World LiveStream on YouTube. I have provided a link to the YouTube Channel if you wish to check this out!

If the students enjoy this experience we will likely repeat it every few months.  I am expecting this to go very well!

What are Kyusho Virtual Classes About?

The idea and reason behind the “Virtual Classroom” is simple. There is a shortage of qualified and knowledgeable Kyusho Jitsu Teachers in the world and many Dojo owners would like to have the art and science of pressure point self defense as part of their curriculum, but they do not feel comfortable teaching the class themselves. I hear this quite often! So the solution is a virtual classroom. The bonus for the instructor / school owners is they can also make some cash for their school doing this!

As the idea catches on  we expand on it I will make seminars available the same way!

How can you learn more about hosting a Kyusho Jitsu Virtual Study Group in your Dojo or club? That is easy! Follow the link below to our website where you can find out anything you need to know. The site is still under some construction. However if you have a question that is not answered there you can email it to me directly! Email Grand Master Art Mason right here.

I am also planning on recording this test session and making some of the footage available. This way you can see how this will all work for you! Here is the link now for the Virtual Classroom information!

How Dangerous are Neurological Knockouts?

How Dangerous are Neurological Knockouts?

"<yoastmark

So how Dangerous are Neurological Knockouts? This is actually a relative question because it depends on the point you hit. Light touch for the most part in training is relatively safe.  However nothing is perfect and here are a few things to avoid.

  • ST-09, ST-10 – These are tied to blood pressure and it best NOT to use them at all!
  • TW-17 – This one is fine for pressing, however a strike can result in a serious jaw dislocation or worse. Best not to strike in training.
  • TW-23 – I see this one used a lot. However it is very easy to damage the ocular bone with a strike here. That can have serious complications.
  • SP-21 – Dangerous point, best stay away except for real life street situations.
  • Free falls. I still see this far to often. Don’t let the Uki fall to the ground during a knockout. Err on the side of caution. Series head and neck injury can result
  • No one over 35 as a rule.

Aside from these points requiring some serious caution most will work well with little to no effect afterward on the person being knocked out.

Martial Arts is about Learning and Sharing the Knowledge

Martial Arts is about Learning and Sharing the Knowledge

With Shihan Norm Rivard Muhammad Ali Training Camp 2010

I have been in the martial arts for a long time now. And truthfully it was the best thing I ever did for myself and my family. The reasons why are just too numerous to mention here!

All of my children train or have trained in the arts up to at least the level of 1st Dan Black Belt, as well as my kids mom. Now everyone is all grown up, but 2 of them are still practicing / teaching in the arts.

So the benefits have been numerous for all of us. But how? Because as martial arts students first, teachers second we have also continued to pursue knowledge. Leaving the ego at the door of the training hall or dojo, to continue our person development.  This is why we have been so successful as teachers and dojo operators.

Our egos don’t get in the way because we know we will never stop learning and then sharing this knowledge with out students.

Over 16 years ago I discovered the art and science of Kyusho Jitsu, and began to share this knowledge with my students in Canada, then others across the world. Why I am so successful doing this? Because I know I still have so much to learn!

Kyusho Jitsu, the art and science of pressure point self defense is a game changer, and equalizer in the real world of escalating violence we will in!

If you are concerned about personal safety, or are a martial artist looking to improve your skills, perhaps a master instructor operating a dojo wishing to give your students more, then get started NOW with our free Kyusho Jitsu Mini Course.

You will be very happy you did!
