Recently, I was browsing on YouTube and found a very interesting knife defense video.
The video clip shows a self-defense instructor and a student demonstrating knife defense techniques in front of a crow of students. The problem is that it seems like the knife defense techniques wouldn’t represent the reality of a knife attack.
If you’ve seen real knife attacks, they really don’t happen in slow motion like shown in this instructional video.
Take a look for yourself:
No wonder the young teenager is yawning at 00:38…These knife attacks are FAR from being realistic!
The instructor was hilarious but the attacker was even more absurd! C’Mon man! Is this really an attack?
Are they serious?
Why is there self defense instructors teaching slow motion techniques that have nothing to do with real life attacks? How is that useful for the students present in that room?
It actually isn’t useful at all.
It kind of creates a false sense of security when you think that you are prepared to face a knife attack, but then realize in the heat of the moment, that all you’ve learn really doesn’t apply to a real life knife attack.
Please make sure you don’t train that way… Please.
If you want real life self-defense training with NO bullshit, you have to check the Code Red Defense videos.
You can start by learning the fundamentals of self defense and get your way through to the knife defense instructional video.
It’s crucial that you learn how to protect yourself the right way before it’s too late.
All of the Code Red Defense videos are available via streaming or digital download.
I don’t want to be rude or anything like that…but you have to take your self-defense
training more seriously than these guys.
Send me your questions if you have any and I will be glad to help.
