Defense against a knife slash or thrust
- 7-3 outside, with a simultaneous pressing block to the opponent's elbow and a inside shutō block to their wrist to dislodge the knife and send it flying.
Since this is an all-or-nothing technique, this waza is admittedly, more of a parlor trick than a self-defense technique. Always grab and retain control of the hand holding the weapon in any altercation.
