How to Defend Yourself against Slasher | Self-Defense

Okay. So now I’m going to explain how to defend
yourself against slashing with a knife. Okay. This is very important to talk about the differences
between slashing and stabbing. So, basically, there are two main moves that
people normally do with a knife. Slashing, OK, can be to this side or to this
side, it’s literally that, it’s a slashing. Okay. And stabbing is when I go for it and I actually
use the point extreme. Okay. I go for it. So, now we’re going to cover the slashing
part. So, the same way that you assume that when
your are in a regular fight you’re going to get punched or kicked, in a fight against
a knife you’re going to assume that most likely you are going to get cut. So, the first thing that you must learn is
how to protect yourself efficiently. It’s like if she slash me , she slashes me
and I cover with these, first of all I shouldn’t ever try to trap in the beginning. This is so quick that if I try to trap this
is what’s going to happen, I’m probably going to get cut in my hand. So, what I have to do is protect my body,
but how am I going to do it? This way, no, why? Because if she redirects by going down, she
will cut me. Okay. Or if she does it this way she will still
cut my belly and I don’t want that to happen. So, what I’m going to do is I’m going to use
the opposite hand in the mirror, meaning if she is trying to cut me what I’m going to
do is I’m going to offer it this way, Okay, this hand. And another very important thing, if I get
cut in this way, the flexors, the muscles that are in charge of flexing your hands and
your arms, are not going to be able to perform so, if I get cut here I wouldn’t be able to
trap any more. So, that’s why I offer the opposite side. Okay. This way if I get cut I would probably be
able to still grab the person. Okay. So, very important, I offer this side so when
she tries to slash me I protect myself and at the same time I make sure that I don’t
get cut in an important area. And when she moves in imaging she detects
that I’m blocking her, if she moves down I will go with her. That’s the first part Okay. I’m going to repeat again I’m going to redirect
and if it happens that she’s going to slash me in this direction meaning from this close
position to the open, I would do the same thing, I would block with the opposite hand
in the mirror, offering this side, very important. And when she changes she tries to cut me in
my belly, I will redirect and I will open. Okay. Another important key thing is to drop your
weight. She’s very strong imagine if she were like
300 pounds I wouldn’t be able to do that so I need my whole body to be in that arm so
this is what I’m going to do. Okay. The same thing if she comes from this way
I would do the same thing I would drop my weight and I open. Another application is like as soon as you
open, you strike directly to her face. Either if you do it that way or this way so
I’m going to show it to you by attacking her very slow in the beginning my position is
going to redirect first, nice, and she’s going to go straight, exactly. If I go to the other side, she does and, she
open, nice, again, nice, very cool, the other one, nice. Okay. Lets go to the other side so you can see it
from the other angle. Going to do the same thing. Nice and the other one, nice. And that’s how you basically defend yourself
against slashing.
