DEFENCE AGAINST KNIFE ATTACKS
THE DOWNWARD THRUST
The assailant is armed with a knife in the dominant hand, in the dominant side forward stance, and attempts a downward thrust towards the officer's chest area.
The Officer adopts the blocking stance and steps back with the support foot at an angle of 45 degrees or sideways at 90 degrees to move out of the way of the assailant's knife thrust
Stop the weapon. This is achieved by striking the delivery system - forearm, wrist or hand (secondary target area) - of the assailant.
The Officer now repositions to strike the medial or lateral portion of the knee (primary target area) to stop the assailant from re-arming and recommencing the attack.
Step back and adopt defence stance.
