Knife Defense Training Video

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 shoul...

When a Knife Attack is Unstoppable

In light of our upcoming Rich 'N Roberts knife defense workshop in Toronto, ON on July 14 & 15 (INFO HERE) I wanted to offer up a video on one of the most important topics we cover during our Knife Defense Workshops.  In our ongoing campaign to be completely honest in regards to knife defense "techniques" that do and do not work, Richard Dimitri and yours truly show the range at which point knife defense is virtually impossible!  Well virtually impossible if left to chance, luck, the planets being aligned.  FIrst, check out the video and I will offer some additional thoughts.   In this video, albeit a demo which makes a real attack much more difficult to defend against, we show how the hand is quicker than the e...

Do Not Fear The Stranger so Much in Self Defense

When we conduct our self defense seminars whether that be in high schools, privately, corporately or to a group of women, it is common for many questions to come up in regards to being attacked by the stranger lurking in an alley, on a path, or on the side of the road if your car breaks down when in fact people should look much closer to home, and most times in their own home.  Of course there are attacks committed by strangers, but the vast amount of time the attack will take place by someone known to the victim whether that be a husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend or acquaintance.  The statistics do vary, but regardless of where I have found them, they all seem to agree that you are more likely to be attacked by someone known.&...

My Thoughts On "What To Do If Attacked On A Run"

In this blog I would like to offer my thoughts on an article that was in a recent issue of Men's Health titled, "How to Stay Safe On a Run—Especially When a Killer Clown Is Chasing You"  They offer some tips on what to do if attacked while on a run and a number of their recommendations cause me to pause and question. Feel free to agree, disagree, or think I am nuts, but my years of teaching have taught me there are much better ways of responding to an attack while on a jog.  Now, the whole article is in the link above, but here is the section where they offer their advice.  I will offer my thoughts after.  According to Runner’s World—a brand owned by Men’s Health’s parent company, Rodale—here’s how you can stay safe on y...
