Possibilities against an armed attacker
If attacked with a weapon it is likely to be either a blunt weapon, such
as a stick baseball bat and the like, or a knife that can stab and cut.
The one who is armed has a huge advantage over an unarmed opponent/victim.
For that reason we do not talk about defence against weapons
but only about the possibilities we have not to be severely hurt or killed.
We teach our members how to use blunt weapons and knives, primarily
to teach a healthy respect/fear of these weapons, so that we do not
make the basic mistakes if faced with an armed opponent.
It is often not a matter of winning but of what you may have to sacrifice
in order to survive.
If possible, find a weapon you can wield or throw at the attacker, such
as bottles, bicycles, chairs and the like. Also make use of obstacles in
the environment to prevent the attacker from getting close.
