    To point out what all people who drill live weapons simulated drills or do Kali Tudo style training know,
    when you attack an opponent wielding a knife without the benefit of a force multiplier with much greater range than a knife,
    you are likely to get caught with a slash, a thrust, or several of them in a large series of the trials.
    Even when you have the benefit of longer range force multipliers, when operating within a short distance, knife wielders are usually able to close the required distance to make you spring a leak in a disturbingly high number of trials.
    If you do not have a longer range force multiplier, grappling a knife wielding opponent without striking them first is a very risky proposition, that seems to lead to a higher number of trials where you would spring a leak than scenarios where you do launch a well placed kick prior to grappling.
    I think that the arts of Karate, Tae Kwon Do, and Savate score a point in this scenario with the potential usefulness of their leg techniques compared to grappling knife wielding opponents without the ability to set up an entry with a well placed kick that operates from a longer range kick style compared to trying to initiate a grappling entry on a knife wielder without a kick set up.
    Like everybody else, I get marked with disappointingly high frequencies when drilling live against an opponent holding a simulated knife if they are liberty to free play with that knife while I am doing so.

    I guess it isn't the technique that bothers me so much as the concept in general.

    Obviously it worked in this instance, and I can see a front kick as probably being one of the better ways of dealing with the situation.

    Seems to me turning those bottles of wine into projectiles may have been a better option, but I will stop my arm chair quarterbacking right there. I can't see myself having the balls to engage anyone with a blade anyway, so my thoughts don't amount to much.

    Actually your way of dealing with a knife attack is the best, run away. Having the balls to take on someone with a knife is a great way to end up without any balls.

    I know a kung fu teacher who had one nut shot off during an altercation.
