The basic knife attack is a thrust

First of all, don't get into knife fights. In Western fencing, this would be called a riposte, and it teaches you that the block automatically breaks the line of the attack and lets you counterattack immediately. Most people aren't particularly trained at knife fighting, so they use a natural punching motion. When we spar in class, we focus and we focus a lot on not hurting one another. Just like you do an inside block or outside block on a punch, you do the same thing against a guy with a knife. If you have to give up your wallet to run away, do it.

The basic knife attack is a thrust or a slash delivered with the forward hand, sort of like a punch. Knife fighting is messy and bloody. I don't care how good you are, if you're bare handed and in street clothes, and the other guy has a combat knife, you're at a serious disadvantage. You need to be aware of that line and be able to turn tangential to it. The trick is to make sure that you do as much damage to your assailant as you can, while turning the least amount of damage to yourself. You aren't fighting fair, you aren't fighting for points, you're fighting to put the other guy down as fast as possible while avoiding getting hurt. Stomp insteps if you can. He's going to attack on a line.

The next technique is to know the range. Be prepared for it, understand that it can happen, and that it will hurt (when you're getting cut) and hurt a lot less immediately after. The knife is used to add those critical four inches to your reach. Knife defense and martial arts techniques sort of mix, and sort of don't.I treat martial arts somewhat as a sport and as a workout routine, but I'd be lying to you if I didn't think it also had some practical utility as a self Clipper Knife defense technique, and a lot of the classes I teach focus on self defense, particularly in teaching classes to women and teenagers, in particular mugger defense and knife defense.

Which leads to the first principle of knife defense: You're going to get cut.

Recently, I've had to give some thought into teaching knife defense. Knife defense has to take a different approach. Again, I say.. If you know how to do a joint lock, by all means do it. Use any techniques you can to A) disable your attacker, and B) run away. If you can, run away. Shove his blade off the line while you move in the other direction, and block before you counterpunch. Again, you're going to get cut the key here is to make sure that when you get Machine Knife for Metal Working cut, it's on a part of your body where it won't permanently injure you. Try to block his wrist with yours, barring that, block his blade with your forearm. Use the range either step in with the punch or step away. Punch for the groin, and go for the eyes. You're going to get cut. The first thing you want to do is interpose your hand, or better yet, the outside of your forearm on the line of attack. It'll hurt, but you have to get through the pain to follow up with the punch
