Self Defense Tactics: Close Quarters Defense
A close quarters frontal attack is the most common attack seen by law enforcement. Around 70% of attacks on the street are (attempted) stabbings, and many of those are surprise attacks.
To defend yourself against a close quarters frontal attack, you will need to disarm your attacker with both hands and move your body out of the weapon’s trajectory.
Once you’ve done this, the next step is to overpower your attacker by grabbing their weapon arm and maneuvering them to the ground.
At this point, your attacker has lost most of their control in the situation. You can now more easily take the weapon from them and remove yourself from the situation, or even use their own weapon against them if need be.
