The Touch/Turn Process Can Take Your Straight Stab Defense to the Next Level.

There seems to be a substantial amount of confusion regarding how the TOUCH and TURN movements should be integrated and completed during a straight stab defense.

So, I thought I’d take a minute to explain. In general, the redirecting movement of the inside defense is not sufficient to move the knife outside the widest section of the body (think TOUCH), so we add another movement that accomplishes this objective (TURN).

The way these movements are integrated and performed obviously matters. My goal is create one long movement that not only sufficiently redirects the knife but also facilitates a quick, powerful entry and combative by maintaining near ideal structure and platform alignment.

Check out the video for the details.
