Knife fighting can be a complex matter. Practical fight wisdom tells us that knife fighting must be swift and quick focusing mainly on lighting strikes. This article will focus on a simple technique borrowed from the ICE PICK (a simple sharp tool used to break a block of ice) called the SUNDOT or TUSOK.

The SUNDOT or TUSOK is to make a tiny hole by using a sharp object. In the Philippines where ice block making is a big business, the ice pick is a necessity. However, there are several occasions when fights break out and the ice pick is used as a weapon against the common knives or machetes simply because it’s easier to conceal it and it is hardly seen in striking motion. This simple and practical technique can be applied using a knife or any sharp objects.

The images show the technique in maximum four steps:

1. The on-guard position. The attacker is to the right while the defender is to the left.


2. The defender side-steps or moves the body in an angle away from the direction of the knife and applies the sundot or tusok aiming the ice pick to the fingers or the knuckles of the attacker. The defender’s other arm/ hand is simultaneously positioned for monitoring and controlling the attacker’s bladed hand/ arm.

3. The monitoring hand of the defender swiftly redirects or parries the attacker's hand/arm away simultaneously delivering the initial finishing thrust to the throat, neck or upper side of the rib.

4. While the other hand maintains to control and monitor the attacker’s arm, the defender follows downward “slashing” motion to the abdomen or groin finishing the technique with a fatal stab.

Here is another variation using the knife applying the same technique.
