** Just food for thought**
Once you have your knife in your hand, what do you do? Stab? Slash? and if so, where? have you ever practiced this drill?
Correct you are brother, I will have my neighbor kid 21 years old (former HS Wrestler) very strong, big guy tackle me and try to disarm me. I am going to use a rubber knive in my front weak hand side pocket and see what I can do.
I have done alot of training of disarming someone pointing a gun (rubber gun) at me from the front, side back, in my gut, and it is fun to learn these moves. It is another thing to have a BB gun, Airsoft, Simm Gun, pointed at you and try to disarm the threat without getting shot. Of course I had protective gear while attempting such craziness.
Proud to say I done this a few times with different people and never got shot. I heave done some training with Simm Guns, and the "bad guy" comes running out from behind a wall 21' away and you are to draw from your holster and get a shoot or two off and hit the bad guy. Most of the people who like me train drawing from the holster were able to hit our target.
So what do you suggest? A slash, or a punch/slash, I woud think> But for me a stab will have to be many stabs in as fast as I can. However, how long does it take for someone bleed out?
