Paulo Rubio and Master Wong have made there are expert practitioners martial arts. The video consists of a short but informative representation of the attacker and the attacked and how the latter can gain the upper hand in such situations. 

As Paulo moves in with the training knife, Master Wong emphasizes on one thing and one thing only. That is, to restrict the movements of the threat. Since the knife can be maneuvered quite easily, his first priority is to disable the hand holding the knife. Once the weapon is taken care of, he then proceeds to solidify his position by getting a better hold of Paul.
