How to Use a Knife for Self Defense

When your Life is in Great Danger

Knife attacks can take a very dangerous turn. Whether you’re the one holding the knife or your attacker, you need to be extremely cautious. This is why we’ll show you how to use a knife for self defense purposes.

When you’re being attacked and you feel threatened, it’s completely normal for you to do whatever it takes to survive. Your survival instinct automatically kicks in and you will do whatever you can to protect yourself and your loved ones.

We’ve mentioned previously that you could be in a situation where you will have to defend yourself with improvised weapons. It’s crucial for you to be mentally and physically prepared to use whatever you can when you’re in a life-or-death situation.

Be Prepared to Handle a Knife in case of Need

Remember, when you’re being attacked, you’re fighting for your life. You don’t know what your attacker is thinking or if he has any weapons on him.

He might even have some friends around the corner who are about to show up in a multiple attacker situation. You need to prepare for the worst. The last thing you want to be doing during a fight is underestimating your attacker.

With that in mind, there could be a chance where you would find yourself having to use a knife as a self-defense weapon. The first thing you want to do if you’re holding a knife is to bring your other arm up to shield yourself.

You need to be very careful about how you aim the knife and when it comes to avoiding your attackers strikes towards you.
