There is many of body action in Piper and many of disruptions, you would, for example, swop fom hand to other hand just former to striking by doing a bit of a body turn first, so the foe only appreciates that its now in the other hand when the blade is currently heading for him.

Are you saying that it is a standard practice to do a body-shift as a method of misdirection (similar to "slight-of-hand" prestidigitation) when swapping the knife from one hand to the other with the intention of having the opponent focus on the now empty hand where the knife formerly was held so that the hand which now holds the knife will not be noticed and so can strike home?

If so, I agree that this is a standard technique within knife fighting styles which teach hand switches.

Or did I misunderstand you?

Peace favor your sword,
