    realistic knife defense-low kicks?

    http://www.mangafox.com/manga/holyland/v08/c074/14.html

    Not that i usually read manga at all, but this one got me interested because the main character is primarily a boxer and judo/kickboxing gets alot of respect, which i enjoy.

    But i understand when things start to get a bit unrealistic, mainly defending knives, but short of running away i can't come up with any better ideas than the method used in the manga starting from this page i linked to.

    the fight only lasts about six pages, remember to read the panels from right to left.

    edit: using a knife or a gun to defend yourself is a better idea that i could come up with, lets assume that isn't an option.

    Im going to be nice and assume that you're young or clinically retarded.

    You cant use manga/anime/comic books/films/tv as actual references for martial arts knowledge or the formation of theories concerning self defense.

    im gonna go with young, and i just thought it was worth discussing, im still running if anyone pulls a knife on me. and i dont think low kicks would save me, just that it looks like a more feasible method than grabbing the wrist and disarming.

    I tend to avoid situations were a knife could get pulled on me anyway.

    If you want to learn knife defense go take a RBSD course. Imitating stuff from comic books will only get you killed.

    He already has better knife defense than an RBSD course can teach, he said he'd run.

    Makes him smarter than most Krav Prac's

    Weak attempt at trolling. I'm giving you a 5 for effort.
