Knife attacks can be extremely dangerous.
The damages and injuries that can surveil from a knife attack can often be life-threatening. That’s why it’s important for you to be aware of what a real knife attack can look like, so you can have the proper self-defense techniques.
The most important thing to remember is that knife attacks don’t happen like you see in movies where you see the attacker playing with the knife slowly before striking. In most situations, knife attacks happen very fast before you even realize what’s going on.
That’s why it’s important to be aware of your attacker and your surroundings at all times. You never know when they might pull out a weapon.
It’s important to remember that in some cases your attacker wants to catch you off guard. Therefore, they will never pull out their weapon and show it to you. This will allow you to prepare and come up with a self-defense technique, which is not what they want you to do. Don’t forget, your attacker wants to be the one in control. Therefore, they will try and catch you by surprise as often as they can.
You can see an example of a realistic knife attack in the below video:
Some crucial factors to remember when faced with a knife attacker are that your opponent often comes out of no where with the intention to hurt you, their hands are out of sight making you think that they are hiding a weapon and can strike out of nowhere with their knife and stab you repeatedly quickly.
Often, your adrenaline will kick in and you won’t even realize that you’ve been stabbed. That’s why it’s always important to be aware of your surrounding and be prepared at all times to strike back.
