Written Summary:

Mr. Kim does it again! The 18 knife defense moves on this tape should take your knife defense skills to a whole new level. Again I saw many techniques I'd never seen before.

Once again, these techniques get pretty fancy. But they are so cool, this one had to score a little better than the previous one. As far as how they fair on the street vs. tournament or testing, it might be questionable. For our scoring, Turtle earned (7) "10's". The tape was well done. If you're interested in knife defense get it. Another great Turtle tape! And again with Turtles 5 tapes for $100, it's definitely a bargain, and a good choice.
