V1 FITNESS Self-Defence Training: Knife and bladed weapon attack.
For many, the thought of facing a knife attack is the most frighting of all self-defence situations. And with good reason, statistics from U.S. police departments show that even highly trained officers are 3 times more likely to die in a knife attack than when they are shot with a hand gun. Even when shot even several times (not vital organs), they still have a higher percentage of survival than being stabbed multiple times due to the bleed out rate of knife wounds. Any form of knife defence training needs to be REALISTIC and with the understanding that you are most likely going to get cut or stabbed during the fight. It's not a game, so never train like it it.
SEPARATING HOLLYWOOD FANTASY FROM REALITY.
At V1 FITNESS we only train for the reality of what real self-defence is. We never pre plan knife attack drills and we never train knife defence with static drills. We teach each student to do everything they can to stab and slash at their training partner with adrenaline fuelled speed and aggression. In doing so, they soon realise that they are going to get stabbed or cut in any REAL knife attack. We then show them simple skills that have been proven to improve your chances of surviving a real knife attack by the men and women who have actually survived such attacks, not just once or even twice, but several times and more in actual combat. What we know from their records is the best percentage of surviving a REAL knife attack is distance and clearing of the weapon. NOTHING ELSE. Any teaching of fighting for the weapon, static drills of grabbing the wrists, blocking, trapping and technical moves for disarming will only increase your chances of being knifed to death.
~ Until next time, stay alert, stay safe and train for reality. #survivalviafitness
