Indeed, facing two individuals is already quite a challenge. Sadly, not many people in this world know how to protect themselves from multiple attackers.
That said, when you add a knife to that, it can get much worse unfortunately.
This is why it’s CRUCIAL that you start training for knife defense against multiple attackers.
When the blade is not visible
There are also situations when you don’t even know which one is carrying the knife or if both of them are. To properly defend yourself against them, you need to assume that both attackers have a knife.
That is to say, underestimating one of the attackers because of their size or making any assumptions as to who is the most dangerous of both, is not a good approach.
That’s why you need to believe that both attackers are equally dangerous.
Being prepared and alert is crucial in this type of attack.
Expect the unexpected.
