This is what I tell my students but I am far from a legal authority on the subject.
So assuming you cannot just get out of there AND assuming the person isn't just after cash. So this ONLY applies to situations that someone is very close AND they have a weapon intent on harming/killing you. Which for people outside the military/LEO/security professions I would hope would be a isolated incident. And in that case it depends. If you are in the close, turning and running equals stabbed in the back and reaching for your knife equals hands down again you getting stabbed. Now saying that, its a lot easier to disarm a knife using a knife to counter strike on the knife arm, assuming you are trained in knife combat. If you are not, there is a good chance if you do draw your blade (if you manage to get it out), that you will put all your faith in that forgetting the unarmed training you do have including "evade and run."

Something to consider: If someone is going to commit a crime, he's most likely going to use a gun and not a fucking knife. This ain't some 3rd country where chicken-robbers cannot afford anything but a puny knife or a DIY shank.
I seriously believe there is a greater probability that a gun will come out rather than a knife in an armed confrontation.Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph.

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
