    Defence Against a Knife: Black Belt Test

    http://youtube.com/watch?v=uIDRAS_6uWc

    Normally, running away from a guy with a knife would make some sense to me. However, if it were my black-belt test (which apparently this is), and we were stuck in a small room, I'd probably try to face the guy. Better to get stabbed in a test than in a bar or car park...

    Why is he holding his weapon in a non-primary hand?

    The comments for that video are hilarious. With some Shotokan guy talking about how intensely hardcore Shotokan is.

    Get up! Get up. Get up! Get up. It's like the chorus of a West Coast hip-hop track.

    His right hand isn't primary? How should he be holding it?

    I didn't see any martial technique out of the attackee.... Did you?

    Did that guy fail? I'd expect to see fighting technique representative of that art used in a black belt martial arts test.

    No. The guy with the knife did, though - a kick!

    I assume he failed - if someone gave me a black belt after a display like that, I'd give it back.

    By the way, my wife saw your avatar and thought it was a penis. I told her it was just wishful thinking. She replied: "No, it's just that that forum's full of dickheads." So there you are.
