IMHO, a trained knife fighter never attacks, only ambushes.

From an Aikido perspective, work on footwork to get off the line/angle of attack and controlling the weapon while taking balance.

Cross-training is about the only way for this to make sense.

Since you've cross-trained in FMA, Seiser sensei, you're the man to ask: can aikido waza deal effectively with an attacker who's trained in kali? Or is having Kali experience the only effective answer?
