Video: Systema and Edged Weapon Confrontations by Glenn Murphy, Chief Instructor at NC Systema

This week, we return to the study of edged weapons, and the physical and psychological limitations they present.

As discussed here, ALL interactions involving knives are potentially lethal confrontations. So we need to be realistic about the stakes, and escape if we possibly can.

On the other hand, if you're *not* able to escape - say, you're stuck defending a child or family member - it helps to have an understanding of how over-dependence on a weapon might limit your attacker.

Only then do you have a decent chance of surviving and prevailing in the moment.
