    Has anyone practiced this method of knife defense? It's a Krav maga tactic called bursting where you focus on jamming up the attacker's knife hand.

    yes, when i was training William Cheung Wing chun we did something similar.

    best advice though, avoid a guy with a knife at all costs.

    cuz if he knows how to use a knife, hes probably better at attackin than you are at defending, and youll get yourself killed.

    but its good advice if you cant avoid it.

    best idea is always avoiding someone with a gun or knife, but if you can't, can't hurt to try and defend yourself.

    absolutely. i didn't watch the whole clip, but in bjj we train self defense as well, and our defense from the lower and over hand attack are almost identical. at least they start out that way, move in close, block it as early as possible, then instead of striking we do a lot of arm bars, and hip throws. but a lot of the basics are pretty similar in terms of how we initiate.
