Throat knife defense THROAT KNIFE DEFENSE Hi everyone, is it possible to defend yourself with a knife aimed at the throat? It is not so simple, however, we can take advantage of some fundamental steps in our favor. In this video I will show you two fairly basic techniques in self defense, so I would say the first approaches with a cutting weapon. I’ll show you the defense with a knife pointed straight and with a knife pointed diagonally. Let’s find out together. Hi, I am Massimiliano Marsala, creator and trainer of the FDKM Police Combat System. In this video as I anticipated, I will show you the knife defense aimed at the throat. I told you that I will show you two techniques, straight and diagonal. In both cases it is not easy to defend yourself with a knife pointed at the throat. However it goes we have to do a risk assessment in both cases, really understand what we are going to risk at that moment. Watch the video until the end to see both techniques, the differences, what are our strengths. Now I will show you the first technique, then a knife pointed straight to the throat on our left. As you have seen, it is not easy but we can take advantage of some fundamental steps in our favor. The first thing to do is to assume the guard position, second we have to block, until the end of the technique, the wrist of our attacker, in this way we can create the distance between the blade and our neck, at the same time we go to hit, we block and we go to disarm. Now the knife defense aimed at the throat diagonally. Also in this case you can free yourself from an attack with a knife pointed diagonally, attention are two fundamental steps that we must absolutely understand before intervening, before carrying out the technique. The first thing is, I repeat, trying to truly understand what we are risking at that moment, otherwise there is no need to intervene. The second evaluation is to understand where the blade is located, so if it is in this direction we must carry out a straight maneuver and then do what we did before, in this case we have a blade pointed diagonally, and therefore we cannot allow us to react automatically and do as we did before, so in this case we automatically cut ourselves, then the first thing to do and assume the defense-shaped position, turn to hit with this part not with the hand, then with the forearm, we go to hit by rotating, immediately we go to lock his wrist and at the same time we go to hit in the face and we go to carry out the disarmament maneuver.
