Written Summary:

This tape is an excellent value for the money. How can you go wrong with a $15 tape, a full 2 hours long, that's packed with 25 knife defense techniques?

If you're like me when it comes to knife defense, and you're watching/evaluating someone else's techniques, you may not always agree with ALL OF THEM. A couple shown on this tape, I personally would have a problem using in a real street situation. I wouldn't want to add/use any technique, that I feel comes with a strong chance of getting cut. Be it not securing the wrist, allowing the forearm to easily be slashed, or the ribs. Now I'm not saying that there are a lot of "cut proof" techniques, because I don't believe there are. However I do feel that some techniques carry a higher risk of that than others. But to each his own. There were over 20 techniques I liked. And for $15, why miss out on adding a good knife defense tape to your collection?
