    This is fantastic. I am testing for my orange belt this Friday. We haven't gotten to knife defenses in my class yet, but thankful I haven't been assaulted with a knife only with the choke hold–which I have now been taught to get out of. The best part about Combat Hapkido is that it really works. You should do a video just on various ways of getting out of choke holds–this was awesome!

    Seth,
    In my experience, there isn't any one "style" that "beats" another. The only measurable gradient is in the superiority of practitioners and/or instructors in any given system, method, way, style, etc… Know what you seek and find those who sharpen you toward that goal.
    Best of luck in your training, sir.
