Defeating a Knife With a Coat

In preparation for the exceptional experience of the 2013 Kung Fu Heart, Sifu Brendan Cabral and I have shot a video showing how to defeat his knife attack with a jacket.  I follow up with harmlessly tossing him aside.  This use of clothing to immobilize or defeat an attacker is known as binding.  This martial art is rarely taught anywhere, but will be featured in theFlagstaff Kung fu Heart 2013.

Please note, while it seems fast in this video, I am actually doing it slowly so that the parts can be seen.  It takes only 3 seconds to execute the full maneuver when done slowly.
