Defending Against Weapon Attacks

The video shows some cutting edge techniques showing how to defend against sharp edged weapons such as knives.

Defending against weapons

To a trained professional martial artist, a weapon is an extension of his or her arm. Often attackers are untrained at handling the weapon they are using. This makes them unpredictable and all the more dangerous in their attacks.

If you are unable to read an attacker's body language, you will be unable to pre-judge an oncoming attack. At the same time, if your attacker is unsure of which part of your body to strike, it is likely they will just 'lash out wildly'.

Throughout this entire situation, you must not lose sight of the weapon that is being used by the attacker. Gaining control of the arm carrying the weapon is vital, especially if the weapon is a knife.
