Knife Fighting: Slash Or Guide Variations For Long Range
These are some variations that I teach in our Knife Fighting Program for Long Range Fighting, in a Duel Format. Sometimes you can just Slash the opponent’s hand/arm while Recovering, and not getting cut, but sometimes the opponent’s knife is still in range to get you.
So you convert the Slash into a Guiding Motion. Very subtle, and very useful move. Again, the primary defending tool is a combination of footwork and body evasion. Then comes the rest of the techniques.
