Knife Defense Training Drill during a SAFE International Self Defense seminar with Richard Dimitri, founder of Senshido & Chris Roberts, Managing Director of SAFE International. The goal in this drill is to intercept the knife ASAP if it's introduced during a knife attack. More important than your quickness is the ability to identify the pre-contact cues of violence. Knife is hidden somewhere on body and scenario created to bring in more reality. Key concepts are to maintain a safe distance which forces the aggressor to move towards their victim. Also, that distance allows the intended victim to see the body language of a possible attack in addition to the ability to see all 10 fingers. In a conflict there is no reason why someone should reach behind themselves so in this video the moment I see the reaching, I go into trap the knife while simultaneously attacking vulnerable targets.
