There is no logical reason to run toward the knife if the blade is all you see. Once your mind reaches to understand every knife comes with a handle you will know why we do this drill. We must learn to pay attention or we may pay dearly for it. A death or life confrontation in your community is the most acute example of it but it lives with each of our breaths.
