Pin the knife!

Most knife attack self-defense techniques are total garbage, they show you unrealistic techniques and movements that are more likely to lure you into a false sense of security and get you killed.

Check out this YouTube video above with Nick Drossos.

Nick Drossos has been teaching Personal Protection for over 20 years. His realistic approach to self-defense has placed him on the world map as one of the top experts in the world.

Nick keeps it simple, effective and easy to learn, his YouTube channel one of the top self-defense channels to follow.

Interesting video, I like the idea of pinning a knife but having the cognition to do it in a real life scenario is something completely different. The vids are good for people that have combat experience, but useless for those that don't.

Yeah 100% of the time it depends on how the body reacts to that sort of threat, no combat / martial arts experience probably means panic, in most scenarios there would be sheer panic. I like the idea of pinning though, haven't seen that before.

This is a great watch, but I can assure you, I am not going to be this calm and strategic under attack. I think the only thing I would remember is to grab this nearest object and throw it has hard as I could at the persons forehead

This is awesome, love Nick Drossos. Thanks for the share, will checkout his YouTube again. Lot's of stabbings going on in the UK at present, scary stuff :(
