Defensive Knife


This 1 day course presents students with skills they need to effectively utilize a folding or fixed blade knife as a defensive tool to repel a lethal force attack. Contrary to most knife programs, this class is designed to address the realistic situations students are likely to face. The course introduces simple, effective movements that are easy to learn, court defensible and work well under stress.

Topics covered include: knife selection, carry locations, legal issues, rapid deployment techniques, responses to life threatening physical assaults, knife techniques for handgun retention and dealing with multiple attackers. The course utilizes a combination of live cutting drills and force-on-force scenarios using training knives to ensure that students gain a high level of proficiency. Join our instructors as they teach this expanded two day version of the class.

Clothing Requirements: Please wear loose fitting clothing but you MUST wear pants or shorts that have BELT-LOOPS and POCKETS. This is necessary for realistic training for the equipment that you carry. I.E. You carry a folding knife on the street so you need to practice deploying it from a pocket in training.
