Behind any attack, there is a purpose. Maybe you don't know the reason or you just do not figure out why you are being attacked. If you know why you are being attacked, that's good, you can deal with the situation in a better way.
Welcome back to Self Defense Situation # 121. Every situation is different and you cannot fit one thing in every situation. What works in one situation, that might not work in another situation. When you fight for self defense, your move should be based on the situation.
If someone attacks you with a knife, and you have no idea what the attacker's intention is, well, you have to defend yourself. You have to strike and counter-attack as a defense.
When someone puts a knife on your throat, you are in a very vulnerable position. Only little move to the attacker's knife can make some serious damage.
Let's watch this video. At the beginning of this video, you see self defense against a knife to the throat. All video credit goes to BFMTV.

If you understand the language of this video, that's better. Well, I do not understand the language. If the attacker holds a knife to your throat from the front like you watch in the video, this is dangerous.
As soon as the attacker sees that you are trying to defend yourself, he/she will not think twice before attacking you. In a situation like this, understanding the psychology of the attacker helps you a lot.
If the attacker's intention is to stab you, he can do that. Instead, he holds the knife to your throat, so he wants you to do something. If he wants your phone or money, give it to him. Before making any move, try to distract him. It could be talking to him, giving what he wants. As soon as he gets distracted, that's your moment to make your move to defend yourself.
First of all, keep the knife away from your throat and then attack him. If he gets injured, don't just stand there to keep fighting. Get out of there as soon as you can. There might be other attackers that you cannot see. So you don't want to give any second chance to attack you again.
