Surviving a Knife Attack
http://www.mindbites.com/lesson/24-surviving-a-knife-attack This is an introduction to basic defense against an attacker armed with an edged weapon, like a knife. Your teacher for this lesson is Leslie Buck, an advanced instructor in the Pekiti Tirsia Kali system of Filipino martial arts. He provides some examples of an "edged weapon," which could be anything ranging from a knife to a tool (screwdriver, etc.), or broken glass. Leslie then shows you what not to do, some exercises (including moving offline and flanking), how to guide and stun, and how to disengage or get away. Finally, he provides some precautions, both for practice and a real attack.
