For many years we have “stripped down” techniques to their most basic functional skeleton, and disregarded anything that didn’t address the defense requirements of individual scenarios in the most direct and effective manner. Any time it was assumed by the defender that a certain thing would not be done by an attacker, we immediately introduced that element into the attack scenario.
Whether a stabbing or slashing motion was done with the front or back hand, or whether the attacker punched with the other hand etc, all of these variables were tirelessly explored. Because some attacks are launched at angles that make defending complex, some defenses are more diﬃcult to perform than others, but are still possible if practiced sufficiently. Rather than get bogged down in complicated concepts, the main objectives of our training is to find straight forward, realistic techniques and tactics that will work and are designed to give an average person whether a private citizen or a law enforcement oﬃcer the ability to defend themselves, or at the least minimize serious injury during a knife encounter.
