Now, let’s talk about the knife…

The truth is you may not even see a knife during a knife attack. Someone who knows what they’re doing will probably conceal the weapon and attack without warning.

So, the first strategy to surviving a knife attack is to be aware of the people around you. Pay attention!

Second, control the distance between you and the attacker. If the bad guy can’t get close to you, he can’t stab you.

Third, watch the hands. If someone gets close to you and you can’t see one or both hands, presume he’s holding a knife.

Third, keep your hands up. You always want to put yourself in a position to attack first if necessary, block, or trap the weapon.

Fourth, prepare for a struggle. Don’t believe what you see in the movies! As hard as you try to grab and control the knife, the attacker is going to fight to keep it. So, hang on and don’t give up!

Fifth, pin the knife to either your body or to his body. You don’t want to chase the knife as it it slashes and stabs. Trap it and pin it down.

Sixth, don’t forget about improvised weapons. If you can pick up a chair, a book bag, or anything (!), and put it between you and the attacker, do it!

One more tip. If the thought of a knife attack terrifies you, that’s normal! But to be more effective in self-defense, we need to address our emotions in addition to learning techniques. So, make some time to address your feelings about the knife. If you can make peace with it, you’ll have a better chance of controlling it.
