Knife Defense Sequence 7

This is a more conservative variation of the preceding technique. Here there is the security of using two hands to block the attack, and two hands to turn opponent's arm over. An experienced defender can break opponent's wrist and elbow, and dislocate the shoulder, all in the same sequence. For beginner's purposes, note the position of defender's left hand fingers in opponent's elbow crease (defender is actually applying pressure to any of several very sensitive points in the area). The takedown can be assisted by a side kick (as in the preceding technique), or by the more benevolent "reaping motion" seen in these photographs.
