If you're dealing with an attacked with a knife and you're within seven yards of them you will get stuck at some point so get over that point and keep yourself in the fight. The best way I've been taught is to circle away from the attacker, DO NOT back up in a straight line. If you have a firearm get to it drawn as quickly as possible and keep putting lead down range. If you do not and you think you can outrun you're attacker then go for it. Again, if you wind up in a fight over the knife you will get cut, but try to keep control of the wrist holding the knife to minimize the damage. It should be common sense but as soon as you are in close and fighting over that knife it is time to get EXTREMELY fucking violent. Crotch shots, biting, and headbutts to the bridge of the nose (if possible) are your friends in this situation.

I firmly disagree. There are two techniques that would be very effective. Those attack motions are predictable. All that is necessary is either sweep it to the inside or the outside and move off line. Throw a strike to the groin, knee to the kidney, volleyball strike to the nose, etc. I'm not saying this is fool proof or you're not going to get cut but it is defensible. It's like saying you can't defend against someone punching you in the stomach, totally defendable.
Lots of people threaten with knives. It's how they get cash, compliance, etc. I believe just a ambush knife attack is rare unless the person is known to the attacker.
