Martial Blade Concepts

This class is the opportunity to learn or improve your defensive knife skills; learn how to complete techniques correctly and become confident to trust your situational awareness and skills.

In this 4-hour class, you will learn the basic skills you need to use your everyday carry knife to defend yourself against the most likely attacks. Here, we will explain why this is not “knife fighting”, rather it is “fighting with your knife”.

The reality of using a knife in terms of stopping power.
• The awareness you will use the knife you have in your possession.
• The basics of using a knife to include grip, stance, footwork, and targeting.
• The master technique to the best responses for surviving the most likely attacks.

Elements Included: 4-hours classroom discussion
Learn to use the knife that you actually carry.
Learn the grips, and footwork required for defense.
Dispel many myths about knives.
Quantify what the tool is capable of.
Learn to deal with the most statistically common attacks.
See how ultimately self-defense is about stopping power, not lethality or fantasy.
