You're more likely to have the blade poking some soft part of your body, and no krotty block in the world will get you out of that.
Best knife defense is a gun.
I am sorry but some of these posters give the impression that they live in a world were knife wielding rapist jumps out every shadow. this subject is not relevant to my interests and I should really not troll this but.. Could there be some kind of hard issues going on behind the curtain?
The only "issue" is what happens in a real world assault with a knife. I suggest watching "Surviving Edged Weapons" and then we can go from there.
It just seems that to survive, you should run. If you can't run, latch onto the hand with the knife, try to reposition yourself, and then run. Anything less than 2-on-1 with the hand holding the knife is too much of an unknown.
My favorite image result:
I like to bring some tongs and drawn butter to my knife fights.
Actually i have no problem with knife training if it is legit. Ask Mtripp to tell his story. That is one of the best and shows why you need to train it realistically or not at all.
