With the world getting crazier and more dangerous by the day, any sane person should be concerned about their safety and the protection of their loved ones.
While a firearm may be the first choice of many for personal protection, a knife could also have an important place in your self-defense strategy.
Unfortunately, most people have major misconceptions about using a knife for self-defense. Because we’ve all used knives throughout out lives, we may be fooled by their simplicity, and over-estimate our ability to effectively use one in an adrenaline-filled emergency.
While a good knife is easier (and much cheaper) to obtain than a gun, using a knife effectively as a self-defense tool can take as much (maybe more) practice as a gun.
To make the situation worse, there’s a lot of dangerous misinformation out there about knife fighting. Too many Hollywood movies and Youtube martial arts “masters” have led to ridiculous ideas of what a real knife fight may look like.
My favorite resource for realistic, no bull-crap information about self-defense is NoNonsenseSelfDefense.com. If you’re really serious about learning to use a knife for self-defense, I highly suggest you check out their information on the topic here.
