    Shane Frazen's Amazing Knife defense?









    What is everyone's opinion on this amazing knife defense? The mugger is especially threatening to me. I'm giving this video points for realism. :obvious_sarcasm:

    Before this gets moved to trollshido for lack of OP opinion, my opinion is that while some of the advice this guy gives out (Such as not letting bullies get away with shit, some of his muay thai stuff seems alright, but I don't do muay thai so wtf do I know) is good-o.k., this has to be one of the dumbest defenses I've seen for a knife. I hope know one sees this and actually tries it.

      This sucks out loud.

      Decent advice about bargaining and running. I even like the hands up in the bargaining position.

      Then Taekwondo happens.

      You do not want to try to stay in kicking range against a guy who is trying to get all stabby. They will close the gap and try to gut you.

          I doubt he's ever been threatened with a knife. Or maybe Shane's just the luckiest man alive?

          Seriously though.... who the fuck would think this would work? Who, when armed with a knife, attacks someone, who is unarmed, like that? I felt like I was watching an old pirate movie or something with that knife work.

            Correction on the name. It appears the mans name is Shane Fazen?

              First of all, fail on all counts of acting like a street tough in their little skit.

              My opinion is that a knife is best dealt with using 2 hands in maximum leverage/disbalancing techniques, possibly combined with incidental headbutts to prevent solid off-hand counters. I showed some of this stuff at the last SoCal meet a few weeks ago so maybe it'll end up in a youtube video. I would call it orders of magnitude more likely to work for the barely trained person (read: youtube watcher).

              If you're not some kind of criminal or asshole, what sort of person would attack you with a knife? Most likely, a criminal trying to murder you, probably by grabbing or pushing you with one hand while stabbing you with short continuous stabs to the guts or wherever they can, until you are dead, which could mean lots and lots of attacks. Someone who stabs non-assholes is likely to be an ex con and may know a thing or two about stabbing a guy (although they're probably not a trained assassin going after Steve from Human Resources). I don't see the need for too technical a breakdown of why a kick to the hand is very unlikely to work.

                There was a video posted a while back in another thread that shows a woman disarming another woman with a similar kick. The only way I could see this having a remote chance of working though is as a surprise while off guard, even then it's a single chance option. I think the best chance against a knife if running isn't an option is to try and control the knife hand, but in the end you're still probably fucked either way.

                  I've seen worse (Age-Uke...). But to believe than you can perform a kick faster than the bad guy can move his hand an inch is delusional at best, distraction or not.

                  Furthermore, if you are at a distance where you can kick, then you are at a distance where you can turn around and run, or grab something (or just hand him your wallet).

                  P.S.:

                  This is what knife defense should look like, according to the worse of the two Shotokan-Dojos I trained at. Picture from http://www.kravmagatraining.com/

                  Edit:
                  Stumbled on this while looking for "Age-Uke-Knife-Defense-Pictures", had to share it:

                      I will keep this in mind for the next time I am accosted by a beatnink in what appears to be detroit.
                      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'm surprised the attacker didn't try to call him a jive turkey.

                          Years ago I saw a guy on TV advise that you keep 5 one dollar bills folded over in a cheap money clip, and keep your real money in your wallet (or wherever else). In the event of an attempted mugging you take out the money clip and throw it in one direction, while running and screaming in the other. To this day I think that is the best advise I've ever heard about how to handle a situation like that. I start every day with my money in my wallet, and I always put change in my right front pocket. That way I can toss a handful of ones and run screaming with my big bills still in my wallet while the guy scrambles to grab singles off the ground.

                              Or ask him "What's hip, daddy-o?"
