DEFENSIVE KNIFE AND PISTOL

‚Äč

THIS COURSE TEACHES THE STUDENT THE MOST EFFECTIVE USE OF THE KNIFE AS BOTH A UTILITY TOOL AND A DEFENSIVE TOOL OF OPPORTUNITY

Carrying a knife clipped in a pants pocket has become commonplace; however, most who carry this tool have never been formally trained, and if they have, it may not be the most practical or realistic training. In most cases the knife has a utility purpose, but the need may quickly arise to utilize it as a defensive weapon. Along the lines of the “Extreme Close Quarters Battle” training programs, this is a course that teaches the student the most effective use of the knife as both a utility tool and a defensive tool of opportunity. This course has been specifically designed to address the needs of sworn law enforcement, armed professionals, and the responsible armed citizen.
