Notice how the officer short stops the initial swing and connecting with target first.

The police/security officer looks like a good boxer.
Not easy to beat.
I've seen that before. Funny watching (again) the dude in the white shirt take himself out by doing his running jump kick, only to kiss the street with his head.
I love this one for entries, Van: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7369HUKO ... re=related He just bulldozes into them, relentless and effective. Of course, if 'bully' #2 had counterattacked instead of trying to interject, it might have turned out differently.
If you ask any martial arts instructor about defending against a knife and he then proceeds to show you a technique that allows you to wrap the attacker up in a nice neat little package…run – don’t walk – out of his school!
If an instructor shows you how to dance around and stay out of harms way… you’re about to get sliced and diced in a real street knife fight!
Let’s get one thing straight – knife defense is like going through a wall of flame.
You should know that there will be pain involved, but how much depends on how fast and how hard you go through it.
Dancing around the fire will get you burnt to extra crispy.
You’re best bet is to go through it…and charge HARD!
The same holds true for knife defense.
Most people want to avoid the risk of getting cut.
So they dance around and provide look for an opening that makes you feel warm and fuzzy about not getting cut.
While this appeals to your natural aversion to pain and violence (and blood), it is incredibly and dangerously WRONG!
You see, in the real world, there’s a split second where your mind needs to grasp the reality of the situation (We call this the “OH #####!” moment).
One second you’re thinking about what this guy wants from you and the next “BAM!!!” He’s stabbing the crap out of you.
When the attack happens, it’s surreal, that’s why you need a method of training that puts you on auto-pilot.
You need to flip the switch and attack!

He pivoted some, but his feet weren't grounded when he did. By the time the blow landed, his rear foot was moving again.
