American Sign Language: "danger" / "threat" or "risk"

Think of this sign as representing someone coming at you with a knife and you block it.  That would be a pretty dangerous situation eh?  Use a double movement.

DANGER (animation)


The concept of "threat" or "risk" (involving potential pain or loss) can be expressed by using the DANGER sign. 
If you want to express the noun form " a threat" or the plural form "threats" you tend to do it twice. If you want to express the verb form "to threaten" "was threatened" then just do it once.
