Hi my name is Dan Schmidt from the Chinese
Martial Arts Center in Seminole and today we are going to be showing you proper self
defense against a reverse knife slash. If somebody has a knife and you see them coming
in to slash inward what you want to do is you want to block and move to the outside
as quickly as possible. So you are here, step, you have their elbow facing you, you want
to twist, press above their elbow right here. You can either go for their elbow or on the
tricep. Twist your arm in, step behind, press straight down. So once again regular motion.
He comes in, step, press straight down. So it is very important while you are here don’t
pull the knife in towards you, you want to twist, you want to really step in and press
down. Keep their wrist above their elbow. Once again when he stabs step on the outside,
as he is slashing in, you catch them this way. You want to twist and press. Your main
aid besides the arm so go ahead one more time, is using the leg, this presses him straight
down to the ground and as you press pull inward this way. That’s proper self defense against
the reverse knife slash.
