1. You are in Hamburger range.
You should either be just out of reach or So close there is absolutely no space between you and them. If there is even a fraction of an inch you are in hamburger range, and you will become hamburger.
2. You are in a “stance.”
If you hold your arms out in front of you you will lose them.
3. You are not moving enough.
Constant motion is a must. You should always be running or walking. When you stop; you die.
4. They don’t have a knife.
WRONG! They ALWAYS have at least 3-33 blades on them. If you think otherwise you are WRONG, and you will be stabbed to death.
5. You brought a gun to a knife fight.
Anyone who is within 20 feet of you can stab you to death before you will ever get your gun out. This is a fact. You will never be fast enough to change this fact.
6. You started a knife fight.
If someone pulls out a knife and points it at you simply walk away (carefully.) This is not (yet) a knife fight. Don’t make it one.
7. You are in a knife “fight.”
When someone attacks you with a knife you either destroy everything you can touch until they stop moving, or you get stabbed to death. If you are fighting with them, then you are already dead.
