The aforementioned principles are also steps that must be followed, and they must be done in a flowing fashion, one moving seamlessly into the other. As the opponent thrusts his knife
with his right hand, you zone to your left into a strong stance a solid base parallel to and outside of his line of thrust. Simultaneously, you use your left hand to contact and then
grab, or intercept, the knife hand at the wrist/hand juncture, with your left elbow anchored at your side.
