Even though this is a serious topic we attempt to keep the training upbeat, fun, energetic and friendly. We encourage you to make new friends and utilize these friendships to continue to practice your skills well after you have taken the course(s).

The system is designed so that the set of principles which are the fundamentals of every technique apply to the most common types of attacks/scenarios. It is because of this approach that trainees reach a high level of mental and technical proficiency in a relatively short time.


PLEASE NOTE: The majority of people who attend these events have absolutely no experience so there is no reason to be intimidated. All techniques are broken down in steps so that they are easy to learn. Attendee leave feeling well educated, capable and most importantly, confident in their ability to defend themselves. Hope to see you at the next event!

It is imperative to have an equalizer in combat and the knife is the most important equalizer you can have. The knife removes the concern of how big they are or how strong they are as the knife equalizes the playing field to give you the advantage in a survival situation. If you do not bring the weapons into play and the other side does, they will always have the advantage. Of course, you want to be the good guy, but you certainly don’t want to be the underdog in the attack therefore; it’s very important to bring tactical knife fighting skills into your arsenal of skills for survival.
