A knife is not only a great tool for everyday needs but is essential in any survival situation.
Your knife can not only be used for back-country survival, but it can also be used to defend you or a loved one from a threat.
Unlike pistols, a knife is easier to carry and is a common tool carried by many people every day for work and as a self-defense tool. Knives in many states/cities are not as restricted as pistols and a license may not be required to carry*.
The Tactical Knife Fighting course covers all facets of using a knife against an assailant who is also armed with a knife from effective deployment strategies to using reverse grip tactics to draw the attacker into an effective counterattack. A knife is a force multiplier, meaning that when used in self-defense it can help you gain the advantage over a much larger or stronger assailant when you are attacked and justified to use deadly force.
The knife-fighting training is an excellent way to develop a keen understanding of how a knife is used in an attack thus learning how best to defend against one. It is also a great way to develop a sense of the flow of an assault with a knife, it helps improve footwork, and improve recognition of knife motion and patterns. All this not only serves to turn students into effective knife fighters, but also importantly helps students greatly enhance their ability to “read” the existence and direction of the travel of a knife being used against them. This is a critical ability to possess and to develop for the empty hand versus knife tactics.
