Close Quarter Knife Combat (PDE)


Saturday July 27, 2024 - 11:00 am to 12:30 pm

No weapon is more elemental to human combat than the knife. This course taught by former Special Operations Soldiers, Carmine Downey (Army Special Forces) and Thomas Potter (Canadian Light Infantry Recon) will train you in various blade close combat techniques. Drawing from Native American, Japanese Tanto, and Kali/Escrima systems, modern military elite units employ these skills which are just as suitable for civilian everyday carry blades or what knives are common around the home. If time permits, in addition to employing the weapons techniques offensively, dealing with them unarmed, should you face an assailant wielding one, will be covered.
