Knife Defense Training - Jab Strike

Knife Defense Training  (Video)

Welcome to the first module in knife defense or how to use a knife in a self-defense situation.  In this training we will be working on using a jab strike with the knife. 

If you have followed any of my other training videos you will be very familiar with this movement.  We are going to start with the basic jab strike. This is probably the most realistic type of attack with a knife. 

Yawara Stick - Knife Handed Strike

With the knife handed strike, you are bringing the stick up to your same-sided ear and winding up your body at the same time. The movement comes from the hips, so be sure to wind the hips up in preparation for the strike. 

As the strike is launched forward, you want the wrist and forearm to start twisting in towards the center of your body.

The strike is completed with a palm up position and with the stick in a horizontal position. Picture yourself cutting through the target.
