    I don't know much about how other martial arts or fighting systems treat defense against knives. Which empty hand martial art or figthing system works the best against knives???

    Why empty hand? If you want to learn defense against grapplers, you study grappling, etc. Check out Kali/Escrima/Arnis, etc. You'll be surprised what you learn being contrary to what you'll learn in an empty-hand system.

    LOL@Asia.

    I would have to say either BJJ or a combat art like Krav Maga. Their knife defenses werent too bad. Combat Sambo has some very realistic knife defenses also.

    I got several Russian Sambo books (I read some russian and there is are several russians living here to help me) most of ther knife defenses are very practical but they are seldom bare hand against knife. They depict using anything at hand, from breifcases to jackets.

    Yeah, empty-hand is not the way to go. I hear that "Conceal-and-Carry-Jitsu" is highly effective, as well many of the other Ways of the Gun.

    Running. This is real life, give the person what they want and get the **** out of there.
    And that's when I figured out that tears couldn't make somebody who was dead alive again. There's another thing to learn about tears, they can't make somebody who doesn't love you any more love you again. It's the same with prayers. I wonder how much of their lives people waste crying and praying to God. If you ask me, the devil makes more sense than God does. I can at least see why people would want him around. It's good to have somebody to blame for the bad stuff they do. Maybe God's there because people get scared of all the bad stuff they do. They figure that God and the Devil are always playing this game of tug-of-war game with them. And they never know which side they're gonna wind up on. I guess that tug-of-war idea explains how sometimes, even when people try to do something good, it still turns out bad.

    Well I seldom carry an escrima, knife or gun on me. My paticular school of Karate spends a lot of time on knife defense... I just wanted to know what else is out there. Thanks.

    Cast in the name of God. Ye not guilty.

    I have over 20 years of baseball experience so my batjitsu skills are more than adequate versus a knife attack.

    Well depends on your definition of "Effective". Most systems have techniques/defenses against knife attacks. After studying Escrima, Dan Zan Ryu and Ken Ju Ryu I have come to the conclusion that if I get into a situation and blades are involved I am going to get cut no matter what the outcome is. That being said and a quote from my Shihans instructor Sig Kuffrath "A blade is a great equalizer no matter what the skill level is" I carry a Spyderco folder every day.


    Besides shipping tape can be hell and my folder and I have never had our asses kick by a box yet.
