Holding the knife in a reverse grip is one of the best ways to conceal it. Because it is a more secured hold, it is extremely difficult to get disarmed using a reverse grip.
The following techniques are meant to create awareness on the reality of knife attacks and knife fights. And that the best way to truly learn how to defend one’s self when confronted with these situations is to understand what’s going on in the mind of knife fighters. The more you understand how they operate, the better your chances of surviving such an attack. I strongly advise the public to seek instruction on these matters from qualified instructors only.
