    Well like Mikael151 was saying in your defense against grappling thread, you could really take many of your techniques and modify them slightly to get them to fit your scenarios. Such as a defense against a one handed lapel grab could be modified to fit a knife to the throat threat. There really seem to be endless possibilities. Remember techniques are ultimately guidelines. I wouldn't expect to ever execute a technique perfectly on the street, maybe something along the lines but not perfection.

    Ok thanks if I understand the principles in Kenpo are universal.

    I agree 100%. One of our guys here got in a fight at a gas station. He attempted to do Five Swords, but other guy fell before he could get to the upper-cut.
    If you do modify a techinque for a knife attack, make sure you can keep a hold of the hand holding the knife.

    First off, don't let someone with a knife get that close to you!!!
