In the video below, I’m illustrating the process of “making space” during a defense of a straight stab attack.

I use the reminder, “touch, turn, chop” in this procedure – with the “touch and turn” being the major movements that create the needed space. If you’re defending a straight stab attack and avoiding the blade by taking an orbital path around the threat, you need to see this video ASAP!

    Chief Kirk,

    How would you address the rapid straight (multiple) stab attack with and without a shirt grab?
