Re: knife defenses
Thanks for your messages, and reminding me of a few things. Especially that the grade isn't a picture of combat ability, but the friend is a licensed doorman (though he has been a chef for the last 5 years, and no doubt a little rusty) and at the time thought that he could defend himself, and that it was the attackers drunken movement and lack of co-ordination that meant he couldn't take the knife off him as he was too unpredictable. Then again it was a very busy and crowded area and the friend did have a drink or too before the fight, affecting his judgement and balance.
Any comments very welcome,
