      I'd have to say when we do actual empty hand vs. knife, it never is complex. Mostly trying to maintain distance and hoping for that one great shot to take out the attacker or disarm them.

      If you do manage to get a hold of the arm holding the knife and immobilize it, on the off chance you can strip it, strip it, otherwise just start hitting them really hard.

        Great thread, I wish we could all get together with some training knives.

                OOPs, in the second picture the right arm (outside arm) the palm is facing down.

                  Drawing and/or "paint" is not my optimal skillset

                    I once did research on FATAL knife attacks and to my suprise I found that a very high percentage of fatal knife attacks also involved blunt force trauma.
                    That can be either before, after, or during the knife attack and can be with or without a blunt force weapon. Most of the time the victim was beat with fist after the knife attack.

                        probably because some people will ignore the knife completely even after being stuck or slashed and continue to try and beat you two a pulp. So if you don't hit something vital you end up with a very aggressive person in survival mode. sometimes they may do this simply because they didn't see the knife and don't know how much damage has been inflicted.


                        Also most knife attacks are not going to be from people extremely skilled with a knife like you find in the FMA's.


                        The video reminded me of one of my first knife training situations. The guy teaching it told us.

                        First rule, don't bend elbow. if you don't bend elbow we do just fine.

                        then proceeded to show a straight arm over the head attack with the knife to which everyone laughed.

                          really though, one must wonder why you are approaching an attacker with a knife unarmed. For God sakes get an equalizer quick. Unarmed vs. armed is only the worst case scenario and only lasts until you can get a weapon of your own.

                            People like ex Cons who are unskilled with a knife have a brilliant strategy. They want to stab you about 100 times.
