    Knife defence for the booze-buyer

    I think I got shown this technique once - distraction then crescent kick to the wrist. Turns out it works. Who knew?

    I'd never considered the wine bottle manoeuvre. Can any bullies recommend a suitable grape for weapons training?

    Fucking awesome. But dammit, that shit could have gone horribly wrong. Score 1 for brave wrecklessness, 0 for masked douchebags.

      Ditto. Every instructor I have had warns against doing this. The knife goes through your foot or slices it open. Now you have a pissed off opponent with a knife in his hand and you can no longer run away.

        I'd say it wasn't even a very good crescent kick, but.... well.... damn.

          This is why I always wear a pair of these on my feet:
          The fool thinks himself immortal,
          If he hold back from battle;
          But old age will grant him no truce,
          Even if spears spare him.

            I thought I spelled it wrong, but as I said I'm a mechanic not an English professor.

              I'm a kali guy with a massive TKD background.

              In all my years of goofing off in knife sparring, I have successfully kicked the knife out of someone's hand exactly once, compared to every other time getting stabbed in the leg.

              I did kick a beer bottle out of a douchebag's hand on the job once. That was kinda cool.

                I've done this when teaching knife defence but only because my second move is to right run out of the dojo. After an interval, I put my Head around the door and say, "You want to fight a man with a Knife???!! ARE YOU CRAZY??!!!"

                Anyway, this gentleman impressed me. I would add that it would have been simpler to just pick up bottles and throw them as hard and fast as possible at the Knifeman.




                The drawback is that the Store might charge for the cost of the alcohol.

                  I have to give it to the guy for stepping up to a knife fight, that takes balls!

                  But no, very low percentage. And based on him not turning his hip over when he kicked, I think he was just trying to stay away from the knife. I don't think he is an experienced kicker.

                  I have pulled it off one time in sparring, but knew that it was luck when it worked!

                    Not only that he didn't turn his hip, he also left his center of mass wide open with the kick. Had he kicked a little too low, or the robber were a little more experienced, the guy would've had a knife in his spleen in no time.

                      And didn't follow through with the cartwheel.

                      All knife fights are risky. But sometimes that can work in your favor a bit as the knife guy generally knows this too.
