Edged weapon assaults are a constant threat for law enforcement and civilians. Knife attacks are common and statistically more lethal than firearms.

It is a training module that builds on critical combat attributes and foundations before transitioning into progressive drills and pressure testing guidelines.

Participants in this course must be current LE/Mil or credentialed security professionals and vetted civilians.
