^^ Amen. I was villified by another karate teacher for teaching-or at least talking about- de-escalation skills. But the fact is, if you don't fight, you don't get hurt. Nor does anyone else. And that is the ultimate form of self defence.

The thing is, any martial arts class must necessarily focus on the martial component. The fact that it is a martial arts class means that the curriculum is focused on this component. A karate dojo must necessarily focus on karate. An aikido dojo must necessarily focus on aikido.

Now, is it possible to talk about how to not have to use your karate/kung-fu/MMA/FMA? Of course it is. But the subject of deescalation and avoidance is such a broad topic on its own (actually the whole subject of self defense is much broader and complex than the "Deescalation/avoidance+appropriate use of force" model I'm suggesting here. Trust me, I looked.)

Where I am, the average martial artist goes to the MA school two to three times a week, spending an average of two hours per session. Two hours is the amount of time spent learning and practicing the martial component - where then shall we insert the deescalation/avoidance component?

Perhaps you can have a special class dedicated solely to deescalation and avoidance every now and then - say, once every two months?

there are TONS of videos on the web on the subject. as much as i believe the only real way to learn self defense and hand to hand combat is to be trained by a expert,i believe videos will give you a bit more of a grasp of what to do than reading about it will.



agree you can learn more form videos...;) about knife fighting :)

I.like the bong idea best. Real life violence is nothing like the movies. Its really...raw and scary, as in shit your pants scary. If worst came to worst, I agree with the stick idea. But I hope it never does.

I like "Get Smart's" idea, just take out a gun and shoot! OK it's a joke. I'm a real good runner.

I don't know about "knife fighting" but I do know several self-defense techniques against a knife-wielding attacker...
but my sensie had me sign a non-disclosure contract. So sorry, no-can-tell.:D

After almost 60 years of training and practice in the arts I've found the simplest thing in this culture of ours is like Teddy said "Walk softly and carry a big stick." A good stout walking stick/cane is legal ro carry and with good trained reflexs is a very good defense.

btw; Ty, nice blades.....

The only real way to learn any defense response my dude is through actual combat. Martial Arts just teaches you what the masters interpretation of what he might think will happen if you push someones arm a certain way. Usually, unless he has real fighting experience outside of a ring. 

This is at the OP, go out and convince your friend to friendly spar with real knifes. If your serious about learning how to kf your going to want high pace, high risk, high pain, And most importantly your practicing with your friend so the utmost discipline will be relatively natural to you.

i'd rather have a baseball bat or a sturdy piece of black galvanized pipe than a knife if facing an opponent with a knife. they could not get close enough to you to cut you before getting knocked senseless by the bat. as tough as they might think they are, they wouldn't stand a chance. hit them in the face if you can with the bat, but it's better to hit them anywhere than to miss because then they could cut you then.

 

a knife fight is not something you wanna be involved in, both people involved are likely to be very seriously injured.

My friends younger brother got killed in a knife fight.

 

The last thing he said before he died is, "it hurts. it really hurts."

I had a guy pull a gun on me from about 6 feet away. He picked it up from the street where my "friend" had dropped it  (and ran!)he began to check to see if it was loaded.

 That gave me a couple seconds for my feet to do their duty. If he had pulled a knife--he would have slashed me immediately! Certainly not saying to have a gun instead of a knife pulled is better. Just that time it was.
