I really like the fact that you didn't beat around the bush with this one. There really are so many 'knife defence' instructors that teach you bad habits in regards to situations with a knife.
But I want to know your thoughts on the following statement: "in any knife encounter, expect to get cut." One of my last instructors had a reasonable amount of understanding in the area of knife defence. You pretty much mentioned a lot of what he taught me, but I'd like to know your thoughts on that quote of his.
Also, thank Cara for the psychological insight. One psychologist to another :)
