Is dodging techniques from boxing and martial arts useful for knife fights

>just run idiot
obviously,but I'm referring to a situation in which you're either cornered,with a loved one that cant move as fast,or you're at home and have to protect your family,I spar regularly,and have observed that boxing techniques such as the jab and right/left hooks have a similar movement pattern to how most attackers will choose to stab you,but since you're dealing with a knife,footwork is most useful for getting outside of where they've swung their arm after dodging the attack,if this is enough for dodging physical attack,what disarming techniques could I use to take the weapon from the attacker if I have no options left?

    I feel like theyre gonna go for the gut, your hamds if you try to grab it, neck if you try to punch them. Id try to kick them in the head or upper chest because theyre gonna be standing chest forward with the knife in their rear hand, if its in the front im going for arm/armpit or head/chest.

      What about a leg sweep to get them off balance? Your average person is not getting up from a leg sweep too fast,it should give sufficient time to get on top of them and take the weapon from them right?

      Carry a 2-foot cord of steel cable, to whip the shit out of their hands. You can also slightly split the end, to make the wires scratch and rip. It is an extremely useful tool against Black folk.

      sounds good,I have my own knife,and I always have a bag of coins with me,I think I should get one of those walking sticks that you can open up to lengthen it,so it can be carried in a bag,it could be used to gain distance between you and the nog.

      Nobody wins a knife fight mate.
      Getting as much space between you and the blade as possible.

      I agree,but according to the scenarios I've given,you cant just leave,so would getting outside of the attacker's view after dodging the first swing and getting behind them be beneficial?

        I mean i doubt the dude is trained so if you have a strong enough roundhouse it might actually work. I mean shit if you really catch someone off who is trained you can knock them on their ass with a simple front side kick

          The real strength of nun chuks is they can put a dent in someomes skull with the flick of your wrist and are much more difficult to see it coming, which is what makes it like an extension lf the hand to be used with kicks.

        this looks useful

        Punch into the knife as he thrusts to get it stuck in your bones

        I'd prefer to escape the situation with as little injury as possible haha

        Its way harder to slash through clothes than youd think, i sharpened the shit out of my knife one time and you really need to put some force and move it with the blade to cut, so a shitty ass pocket knife would only be useful stabbing mostly.

        I always wear long sleeved leather jackets when I go out so that's nice to hear

        Yes it would help to be able to parry/duck/slip/dodge the knife but if that fails I would do my best to get ahold of the arm with the knife, and headbutt the frick out of the guy as many times as it takes to make him stop moving. The crown of the skull is the hardest part and you should aim for his lower face.

        what about eye gouging the fricker after you've gotten ahold the knife arm while keeping his hand as stretched out from his other arm as possible? I already have some great grip strength
        so I know I can keep hold of his arm with just one hand.

          Be aware their first reflex is to pull the knife back and if you dont really have ahold of them itll cut your hand and maybe wrist. Thats why theyre probably gonna be holding it with their back hand.

          If youre that frickin good you might as well hip toss them over your shoulder.

      literally this, if someone comes at you with a knife either pull out a gun and shoot or run away
      if you also have a knife you'll both get stabbed
      even if you manage to pull some hand to hand technique there's no guarantee you're not getting cut somewhere else on your body, no shame in avoiding getting stabbed I personally would rather get shot than stabbed

      We used to put lipstick on the edges of the training knives just to show how easy it is to get cut, and I don't think I ever saw anyone not end up with lipstick on multiple parts of their body.

    If you can parry punches, you might be able to grab a guy's wrist during a knife thrust.

    I recommend extremely powerful oblique kicks, jabs => kicks, and grabbing a long stick for fighting knives.

    Theres a lot of roleplayers here. Look anon, you may be able to dodge a very telegraphed stab but most likely case is they wont show you they got a knife and stab you with a suckerpunch or if they know their stabbing, they will throw a non telegraphed proper jab with it. Human reflex isnt fast enough for those sorts of jabs. Best thing to do is use your legs to keep them off and cover your neck and upper torso with arms and feed them your arms if it comes to it. If they are holding their knife hand behind them while trying to get to you with the other youre in real deep shit, kick like hell.

    theres nothing you can do against a knife, especially if someone really wants to kill you, they'll go for the body and you can thrust a knife like 2-3 times per second, its just thrusts from the shoulder/elbow, a knife doesn't need power from the hips and legs lol.

        its not similar because a knife stab is way faster than the fastest punch and much closer aswell, like i said there is no force production required and nobody is going to stab like they are doing a jab or cross, theres nothing you can do against a knife period

        Sure, its possible. Try out what I mentioned. Get a training knife, or even just a stick or big wooden spoon or something with a reasonable length. Slap some lipstick on it, and have someone try to "cut" you with it. You said you spar regularly, so I'm sure you can find someone to help. Doesn't matter if they are trained or not. My guess is that you'll end up with a lot more red on you than you expect, even against an untrained opponent.

        Then hopefully you'll realize getting in a knife fight is not a good idea. If you have no other option and can't flee, find an improvised weapon with more reach.

          I just tried it with my dad with a marker cut slashed once across my upper back while trying to restrain his arm,then 2 more on my left forearm,he switched arms and grazed my oblique before I got his arm then took the marker from him by twisting his wrist, the marker grazed my back so it probably wouldnt be as lethal in a real situation,the one to the oblique probably wouldnt look good with a well sharpened knife though,overall I can say I wouldve survived,I told him not to attack on my command,but whenever he's ready. still a great wakeup call. I went 100% on trying to take the knife from him. he isnt slow at his age either.

            Good, now you see the problem. And remember, if it was real all those cuts would fricking hurt. Maybe you would be so hopped up on adrenaline that you wouldn't notice right away, but that's never a guarantee. And if the cuts were deep enough to hit tendons, etc—such as those cuts on your forearm—you might suddenly lose the use of that extremity in the middle of the fight.

                We were taught in the military, and I think its the same for law enforcement, that in a scenario with two opponents—one with a knife 25 ft away and one with a gun 100 ft away—the dude with the knife is the more immediate threat. Before you can kill the guy with the gun, the guy with the knife is going to be pushing your shit in with a sharp object. Knives are bad juju, don't let them close to you, and don't fight them with your bare hands unless you have literally no other option available (which is rare).

                Contrary to popular belief, you CAN develop knife fighting ability like other martial arts, so long as you drill and live spar.
                You use a shock knife with red lipstick on it to spar.
                What you do is both you and your opponent have to be wearing all white, along with fencing helmets, and you put red lipstick on the shock knife.
                If you get red on you it means you were stabbed or cut.
                If you get red in a vital area, the fight is over and you bleed out and die.
                Beyond that it's just regular MMA sparring but with the training knives.

                All the real knife fighting books are ancient since it's been literally decades and/or hundreds of years since knife fighting was common enough that they had a formal martial art for it.
                I can't speak to any of the books validity because I haven't drilled and implemented the techniques in live sparring, but the only real knife fighting books you will find are HEMA related, wild west cowboy (unironically) butch knife fighting, and some Filipino books.
                Again, I can't recommend any specific book or technique without actually stress testing it, and even if the techniques were legit, they are useless if you don't train in live sparring.

                sure, the thing, in real life, the main way a knife is used against someone unarmed is the "prison rush", where they run up and stab repeatedly as fast as possible.
                Because of that, if you get attacked with a knife, it's immediately going to be up close which means it's a grappling fight, but with the focus on the weapon.
                It's something you have to live spar. You'll be working on getting an arm bar or americana/kimura on his knife hand and then he'll just hand off the knife to his other hand and stab you, it completely changes grappling dynamics.

    if someone takes a swing and you block with your hand its fine
    if someone has a sharp blade and you try to block with your hand you can say goodbye to your fingers
    blade defense is very specific and even than it's not all that good against somebody with some experience
    best bet is to run away and if you can't it's about controlling the knife arm but it's very hard

    Basically in knife self defense I was taught (it's been many many years but I remember the main points)

    A) gtfo obviously, if possible
    B) get distance or anything between you and the knife. Eg. if there's a chair or something use it
    C) if A and B cannot be applied, realize you're going to get cut. It doesn't hurt as much as you may think (maybe due to adrenaline as well?). Protect your vitals as much as you can. Good luck.

    Defense against a knife is extremely hard because your basically trying to to avoid an object which the entire area of contact in its entirity is an hazard, besides being something that requires little force to do a lot of damage,its hard and unlike defense against bats for example there isnt that many techniques that will work under pressure. The best bet in my opinion is to gain control of the wielding arm first and foremost and from there go for strikes and takedowns that dont require you to break the hold of that arm. Besides that punches always with the goal to knockout, since the attacker has less upper body ridigity and tension since wielding a knife leaves you vulnerable since your constantly out of your center of balance trying to slash,cut and stab leaving the jaw for the most part clear to hit, mainting distance with push kicks and oblique/kicks to the knee. But with that being said its still hard as frick and it requires an enormous ammount of practice for you to even have a slight chance.

    Look how many times the marker marks him up.
    Usually people get stabbed 10-20 times before being able to disarm the knife.

      I n a real knife fight, there's a lot of testing distances, and sudden stabbing. That or it gets in close and there is grappling with the focus being on the weapon.
      But you CAN get good at it and have an advantage against untrained opponents, IF you actually full contact spar and keep in mind that every red mark and shock on your torso or neck == death.

    Funnily enough,a machete/axe attack is less dangerous than a knife attack,with a machete or axe,they have to wind up their attack in order to cause damage,if you dodge the first swing,you have plenty of time to wrestle the weapon away from them,the axe's long handle is a little more convenient though,with a knife it isnt so simple. in the case of melee weapons,atleast in this case,bigger does not mean better.

    I laugh at zoomie threads so hard. Especially when it comes to combat

    Long story short, those that know me here, know I have been in the shit.

    -ex marine recon, deployed in active combat middle east, africa, hand to hand etc.

    Yes, dodging techniques are better than NO TECHNIQUES. Avoiding it, as you say best of all.

    But no, putting something in the way, a chair, box, an ornament, better still. Distance plus something physical.

    Life is not a movie, even "martial arts" confirmed experts in movies frick up many times during shoots. Martial arts are dancing performances. It looks cool and badass, alright?

    Real combat is looking like a desperate beta using what you can to defend, no show here, and it is also hard, fast, and simple.

    You talk shit, puff out your chest, move your hands around your pockets, walk towards me, I simply put my keys between my fingers and jab you within a second in your beck.

    It's over.

    Be you 5ft or 7ft.

    Kids like you "I practised blocking knives an guns, and used foot movements to dodge" always end up dead.

    Sometimes in in life you will come across the weakest untrained goon ever, but they have NOTHING TO LOSE. And 9 times out of 10 you will beat them. One time you will not. And you are dead. And you might have a family, a son, a Mother left behind.

    People often ask why I post my face here with a trip, and it's because I have nothing to lose in this world. No family, no kids, no wife, no nothing.

    If I did, I would not even be here.

    Not because I couldn't beat ass, but because the juice wouldn't be worth the squeeze.

        My name, location, details, photos and so on are on here.

        I am ex marine recon, who grew up on southern california, single mother, poverty, drugs, death, no future who joined up.

        Also being a short ugly loser, I had nothing to lose, and gave everything. And I excelled.

        I am soon to be 45. I was deployed years ago. Saw shit, did shit. You would know this if you were not such a newbie.

        I have nothing to lose. Have an issue? Bring it up.

        Yes, that is a fat larper, but you are also the moron that thinks da supa special ops are roided up monkeys.

        They're not. They are 5'9" 170lbs.

            When you stand before God, you cannot say, "But I was told by others to do thus." Or that, "Virtue was not convenient at the time." This will not suffice. Remember that.

          Do you still train any martial arts?
          I know you may not believe this but the military is famous for having shit melee combat because it's simply a low priority when training soldiers for modern war, which is all firearm based.

            Soon modern war will be RC racing drone pilots with VR googles bombing each other like some sort of weird video game or sport. With pistols for just in case scenarios.

            I train in close quarter combat and yes, ahem, fanx judea, krav maga.

            It is a really low priority. If troops have to rely on it, you're pretty much fricked. It is almost never going to happen. I would say for those poor souls gathering intelligence, it isn't an offensive thing, but a survival thing.

            It's why MUHREENS go to bars, get drunk and fight, all is well, until some big corn fed farmer boys turn up and throw you out of the window.

            Basics, control people, defend yourself, works with your regular drunk, but martial arts as some movie bullet dodging is just fantasy.

            There is a reason why most bar security are not 5ft "martial artists" but 6ft plus heavy guys.....

              Have you ever gone down to a local MMA gym and challenged some 5ft guy? You might be surprised.
              Bullet dodging may be a fantasy but you can gain a extraordinarily unfair advantage against people by training legit MMA in unarmed fights.

              No, the real reason for that is the visual intimidation factor.
              I worked in security for awhile and security outfits don't care about you're ability to actually fight AT ALL, the "HR" for security gigs only rely on appearances, any actual combat skill you have to develop on your own time at your own expense.
              I'm not saying the big guys can't fight, but I am saying they were hired because they looked tough, regardless if it is true or not.

                Indeed. Image means less trouble for a place. Nobody wants to employ the worlds hardest combat artists who are garden gnomes at 3ft tall.

                All I am saying is that on average, big guys beat small guys.

      I know, right! I need to educate these zoomies! The majority female teachers at schools are not going to, who bleat about toxic male upbringings, when they spend the vast majority of time educating said males... Oh..

      Now this is another level of larping

      >refute
      >this post

      It's saving young dunbass men who grew up on a diet of action movie tv who think they can doge knife and gun bullets, so long as they train in the right martial arts..

      Hey ho, have you seen all those military videos showing that......

      Oh no.. wait.

      >released military footage
      >up close and personal
      >martial arts

      LOL. Not that either..

      Hell, even MMA resorts to on the floor and not fancy moves. But ya know, if you train in that supa sekrit martial arts, you can dodge knife attacks, like you are Arya Stark..

    Your best bet is to grab objects and start chucking it at the guy with the knife. If only 1 object is around you, use it to create distance between you and the attacker. If its a big enough object, like a chair, try to thrust its legs into the guys face as hard as you can while trying to stay at a distance.
    There is no way to get out of a knife fight unharmed if you don't have a weapon, don't listen to larpers

      But these are often like training to disarm a knife or gun.

      Does it work? Yes. If you're lucky and fast.

      And if it does not, what do you lose? Your wallet and watch.

      Is that more valuable than your life? No.

      Every day, every year, every decade. Train. And your life still is worth more than a wallet and watch.

      Not to mention for you McDojo guys, when it happens irl, your adrenaline will kick in and your survival response will often override your training.

      Give it it, live, survive.

      If they try and take more than that, forget the training, poke out their eyes, and bite their nose off.

        It's a police training video from the 80s. The message is stay away from knives or you'll get killed. Carry a gun. Also you type like a redditor and need to be 18 to post here. Lmfao you didn't even make a Google acct as lie about your age to watch YouTube videos. C'mon kid.

          Oh right, my bad, yes, those with a knife come upon you fast, faster than most understand, and when they do, you're dead.

          My post likely supported that though.

          >Also you type like a redditor and need to be 18 to post here

          I am 45 years old this year. YAY

          I have no idea what this even means, Zoomie something wink wink I hear ya.

          I have been here 20 years or so, tripping for 5 years, and if you don't know me today, you likely came here in the past year. So you really should lower your tone.

              I will not sign into jude tube, I would if I could create a fake account, which often requires a cell phone number, which often can't be had without a credit card verification.

              I guess I'm just a 1775 kinda guy.

              No, for sure they have an advantage. But on a normal person basis, the bigger guy does, and most people going to bars and clubs are normal.

              I am totally not saying the 5ft gym mma guy is nothing.

              What I am saying, I do not train in rules, be you 5ft or 7ft again, I can nick your neck and see you bleed out within seconds.

              And this makes me respect strangers. I never have an issue with anyone. Only when you put my life at threat will I take a life.

              You can totally have an advantage at 5ft in a "fair"mma" fight

              But you see, life is not fair.

              And why should a big guy expect a fair fight with a small guy.

              Why should a trained guy expect a fair fight with an untrained guy?

              Real life is about survival.

              So that means a 7ft bodybuilder MMA artist naked isn't against a 5ft skinny random guy.. It means he can pull put a gun and blow your brains out.

              Life is not equality; it is survival.

    >a situation in which you're either cornered
    getting good at climbing or parkour is far more useful against someone with a knife than any martial art. do not fight someone with a knife under any circumstance.
