Keeping It Simple Is Best In A Knife Attack Situation

knife attack - knife defense - knife fightI will be the first one to say, generally speaking in a knife defense / knife attack situation there is a good chance your going to get stabbed or slashed.

    I am not sure why when people talk about Wing Chun they mention Chi Sao and then they go into how Chi Sao isn't training for realistic fighting situations. Then I usually hear that if you really want to see if your Wing Chun works you need to try it…
