Re: Saito Sensei & the no-hands throw

Well if you have a blade, I think I'll do what you tell me to do, or run. Or if I have enough space, pull my gun and shoot you. I'm not stupid enough to engage a person with a blade.

However if I am unarmed and I am forced to engage a person with a blade, I am going to attempt to move off the line just like I would any other type of grab or punch, and then control his knife hand. I'm then going to try to take him to the ground where I can leverage my body weight to control his hand. The final thing I would do is hope I dont bleed to death before I get to a hospital. Of course its important to remember that if he has a blade, he's not going to let me know he has it until he uses it. So chances are i'm going to have to do all of that AFTER getting stabbed.
