The Armed & Unarmed Knife Defense course is currently in development and is available in an early-access format for Special Tactics Elite Members only. New modules will be released as they become available. While the graphics, sounds, and activities in this course may not be finalized or polished, the course content is very close to what will appear in the complete course.
We provide early access content to our elite members for two main reasons. First, members can benefit from getting an early look at course materials. Second, Special Tactics can benefit from getting real-time member feedback on the course content, user experience, and presentation. Therefore, we encourage members to offer both positive and negative feedback on early-access courses, editing suggestions, corrections, ideas for improvements, and specific requests for course content/subjects.
The Armed & Unarmed Knife Defense course addresses the growing threat of deadly knife attacks. While knife defense incorporates many core principles of armed and unarmed defense, there are many specific concepts and techniques that are particularly useful or relevant when facing off against a knife attacker. The course will include the following subjects:
- Unarmed standing knife defense against lunging, stabbing, and slicing attacks
- Strikes, joint-manipulations, and throws
- Ground-fighting techniques against knife attackers
- Protecting someone else against a knife attack
- Using improvised weapons against a knife attacker
- Armed knife defense
