    Conclusion: Always bring a gun to a knife fight.

    Well, If you have the option ALWAYS try to open the distance.
    Since the assumtion is that you can´t run, I think that the better think is to control the attacking arm at all costs. Bear in mind that I meant the arm, not the knife. Trying to grab a wrist or making a disarm attemp will kill you. If you have a chance for a disarm, take it, but don´t seek it! Try, in an agressive manner to a) control/defang the arm or b) while controlling the arm attack the body, so you can defang the arm. Your priority is always to remove the greatest threat, which is the knife.
    I would try to attack and control his arm first simply because of the range involved, which is a little more than the range needed for attacking the body/head while controlling the arm.

    Hey a year old thread revived! :)

    Interesting to re-read what I posted before. I still think the same thing in general, grab the knife wielding limb with both hands to ensure a better chance of success and start head butting.

    Yup, I'm still a clueless n00b. Flame me. ;)

    I find giant robots help in knife fights. Other than that I think i would be pretty much owned. Ive practiced with a piece of wood...and basically it got me all the time. Id rather just get the **** out of there, or let him cut my arm to gain control of his and break it then just get the **** out. Is this a situation where sacrifice of a small limb could keep you alive? I think so...my life for a cut hand or arm, sure. Last resort of course.

    Miyagi: Feeling correct.

    Daniel: You sure know how to make a guy feel confident.

    Miyagi: You trust the quality of what you know, not quantity.

    Ronin I think a better explanation of "don't ever back up" is "don't ever back straight up." There's a reason for practicing triangle footwork - don't throw it out the window when it's needed most.


    Having said that, I don't want to prolong a knife fight at all. We did the old "knife sparring with lipstick on the training knives" drills. After fighting my instructor and two senior students, it was quite obvious to me that even the "winner" is going to be in a world of hurt if two people with any training at all start slicing.

    I'll back up for range but it's not going to be my primary strategy.

    Fighting a guy with a weapon, any weaopn is always a last resort/worst case scenario.
    But they must be trained for to increase your odds of surviving.

    A buddy of mine does DeCuerdas Eskrima, and one of the drills they did involved them fighting in just shorts and nothing else with a marker in their hands to be their 'knife', then did their best to 'slash' each other. Seems like it might make a good idea for a drill, never got to try it yet but I'd hate to try to fight either of them in a knife fight after watching them go at it.

    That drill is very old, I am surprised it seems "new" to you.
