As a matter of fact, I do. These should probably be posted in true lies, but whatever.

Final piece of advice: Learn to spot trolls, lest they devour your soul.

Can you kick a knife out of a hand. If the opporunity presents its I yes, but it not the "best" defense.
It just seems like many people would react to a kick by swing the knife at your leg, which wouldnt be so pretty.

hmm TKD versus a .38..okay, TKD remains a stylistic construct existing in training halls the world over, and the .38 remains an inanimate object. Ruled no contest after infinity rounds.
Don't forget the fact that guns don't kill people... people kill people.
Wait a tic...
A TKD practitioner with a .38 is teh ultimate weapon!!!
I trained in TKD for just over six years, and for what it is worth, I had a decent instructor. Although we did work on knife & pistol disarming techniques, the moves had a limited use. First of all, the gun has to be within the 'A' range (w/i 24" front or 6" rear). Next, the timing has to be precise, and the movement sure. Most importantly, you have to be able to judge if the first two requirements have been met.
In a stressful situation, I really don't see any sure-fire way to defend against a pistol. You might get lucky, though.
Any legitimate instructor will tell you the best defense, is to not put yourself in a questionable position in the first place. If you do find yourself there, these are only 'last-resort' moves.
I really enjoyed the knife training; we used chalked knives and all black clothing. This way, you could clearly see where the knife would have made contact. There was no guage for the pistol-arts, though.
The traditional Korean way is to train with live ammunition. This has passed down from the ancient teachings of Shinanju to today.
Remo Williams showed me that technique once. I might be able to do it, once.
