Thread: Is this a realistic technique to stop a knife attack?

  1. #1

    Default Is this a realistic technique to stop a knife attack?

    Traditional Martial Arts get a lot of stick.

    I don't know much about them, but I often come across these tutorials and I always wonder how realistic techniques such as the one in this video really are?

    It's BS. Evading the initial attack could work (if it doesn't though, it will hurt a lot though), but once you grab someone who has just tried to stab you they are not gonna stay still while you move around or do some ridiculous kick.

    But surely if you practice it enough and can do it fast enough it becomes slightly less BS?

    The wrist lock used later in the video looked like it could be effective?

    I doubt it.


    Wrist locks are effective. I would rather not try to use them against someone with a knife though.

    wrist locks do hurt but are almost completely useless against a standing resisting opponent.

    by simply pulling their hand back and placing it flat on their chest or stepping closer to the wrist being attack to do the same, you can nullifiy 99% of wrist locks.

    once you have superior control of an opponent on the ground you can apply some wrist locks, but when you are in a position to do so you, you are already in a place to do far more practical locks.

    i say this as a Hapkido black belt who wasted years of his life training wrist locks.

    (i almost said ex hapkido black belt, but i guess i still have the belt even if i dont use the skills i was taught)

    the basic technique of evading and applying the kote gashi is sound, he's just not doing it right, there's no waki and the kamae is wrong. definitely stay away from using the atemi's though, all the attention should be on controlling the arm and knife.

    i think the problem with knife defenses like this is the assumption someone is going to stab you in such a linear way.

    I used to train tai jutsu and while the techniques can be fun and educating to learn everyone has different flexibility and pain tolerance so you never know if the small joint manipulation will be uncomfortable enough to allow you to actually control a person who is intent on hurting you.

    Plus, do people really pull out a knife and show it to you before attacking? How often does that happen?

    I would assume that most of the times when people get stabbed, they didn't even know a knife was involved. Nearly all the times I have read reports of stab victims they say they thought they'd been punched then looked down and saw blood.
