    ถ้าฉันจะพูดกล่าวว่า! ฉันต้องการดูเฉพาะพี่สเตนุตไอคิโดและทั้งหมดของคุณสเตฟานสเตนุตเท่านั้นค่ะ และส่วนที่เหลือทุกอย่าง ไม่ว่าเพลงหรือธรรมะฉันขอเลือกเองเถอะนะคะ ไม่ทราบว่าคำพูดของฉันจะเหมาะสมและสมควรหรือไม่คะ ความสุขของคนเราอยู่ที่ความพอใจ ความเบิกบานจึงจะเกิดขึ้นได้ ปีติสุขย่อมตามมาด้วยความผาสุขค่ะ

    It's great movie magic and this is what put Segal on the map, but I wouldn't trust a lot of it. Just doesn't seem realistic that all the circular motions, like looping around a person's wrist after you've just blocked their attack, will actually work. I say a good drop kick to the nuts and call it a day.

    Why do people actually believe this load of shite? You really think you can learn to defend against a mad flaring knife attacker? DO NOT practice these techniques. They will get you killed. Bunch of foolishness people teach.

    Can someone help me out here; whenever I thrust out with knife/punch and they step back and do wrist rotation like kotegeashi or they step back, my body doesn't know which way to breakfall as it hurts both sides of the wrist. I almost had my wrist broken had sensei not let go.
    whenever someone does kotegaeshi/ throws like kotegaeshi (like when you thrust at them with a knife/punch and they raise your arm up overhead and arc it down e.g up over one shoulder, go over head and past the shoulder and bring it down), it hurt my wrist/makes it go 'crack', even when I fall and breakfall with other arm.

    sadly this wont work in a real scenario

    1. noone full charges a stab like this they do multiple stabbings at close range
    2. when grabbing the arm with the knife in with only 1 hand they can easily slip out

    best defence is counter intuative….grab with both hands

    A Chinese saying goes, "there is always a higher mountain compare to the one before" . Practicing Martial Arts doesn't mean going out there and kick someone's arse and being cocky about it. It's about "staying fit and healthy, building self confidence and learning respect.

  8. billy jean111 says:

    I think in my opinion is all martial arts in all forms requires one of two lessons. Practice makes perfect and secondly, to become a good student of any forms of martial arts is "not to pick fights, it's important "avoiding" a confrontation is the best form of defense.

    Does anyone really think that this is a realistic knife defense? Additionally, does anyone really think an attacker wields a knife like this? You train how you want to react and you react by how you train. If you train unrealistically for unrealistic attacks you'll just get injured or killed!

    For sure. If running is not an option, any tool found nearby could be useful. I would be more confident to face a knife with a stick or something (umbrella, etc…).

  11. flbellman says:

    I mean, I have a real open mind about MA and I keep studying any kind of technique against the knife including Systema, Ju jitsu, Aikido, Kali etc… all in all I think that there is no real defence. You just have to hope that the guy holding the knife is a noob. As long as I could kill myself with a knife, I should assume that the guy holding the knife is as good as I am. Therefore…I'd run for it!

    Problem with this, is that you've got to have particed it for a longtime for it to be worth while, this is the reason why people prefer to learn MMA.

    For example, I learnt Karate for four years and was still getting my ass kicked (okay, I've never been in a fair 1 on 1 fight but still) until I learn some KungFu and JuJitsu to use along side it. Not to mention how I've had to learn a few street defence techniques.

    Erm, anyone agree/disagree with this?

    P.S Karate I did was Sama Karata.

    aikido works if you do it right. that's the power and weakness in aikido. while striking attacks can be effective with enough brute force, aikido needs near perfection to be effective. hence, it's easier to be effective in striking martial arts styles.

    this video is obviously trying to show how the technique is executed rather than displaying aikido in action, hence the slow motion.

    @singhakabuttar It may be for someone who is untrained. But i am pretty sure that if someone came out with a knife to my sensei they would get there ass kicked. I on the other hand would get stabbed. lol
