Dan Do Mak Ki
Dan Do Mak Ki means defense against knife attack.
When opponent attacks with a knife from the front or side,
you should avoid the attack or block his
hand and counter with a kick, punch, or joint lock.
When training against a knife attack,
you should concentrate on opponent’s movement,
keep your mind calm for instant judgment,
and have proper breathing control for better movement.

knife by staying to the outside of the opponent’s arm.
If a cut is unavoidable, it is better to sacrifice an
arm or leg to protect the head, chest and abdominal area.

knife thrust, stab, and side-to-side slash.
