Take a knife and place it on yourself in a way that suits your carry purposes. For example if you are a tour guide to the forest you will hang it in a dangling loop on your belt and if you are a lawyer you will place a small Swiss army knife in your back pocket. Now have a partner stand at a comfortable distance from you (you decide for yourself what is comfortable) and at his will start walking toward you. You move and take the blade out and ready it for use if need be and mind how close your partner got to you while you practice this. Do this several times from all directions and while standing, sitting, leaning and note the differences in the work and what you can do to get the job done without getting hurt yourself.
Next do the same thing as your partner runs toward you and follow this with work in uncomfortable distances and locations as walking side by side and sitting alongside each other. A knife is just a tool. You decide how to use it and it is a very small shelter even when used well.
