I’m offering both Manny Gonzalez (the hero) and his father a lifetime membership at Front Sight, the world’s largest shooting school.
Manny used all he had (baseball bat) to knock the knife away, Fuentes came back with a meat cleaver and Manny kept after him, hitting him in the back with a crowbar because he still posed a threat to neighbors.
Gonzalez ran inside the house and told his girlfriend to call 911. He asked his dad for his gun, but his father was too worried his son would get in trouble. So Gonzalez grabbed a baseball bat and a crowbar the household keeps near the front door.
