Class Description

Edged Weapons

This eight-hour class will give you a solid introduction to edged weapons combat. It includes the foundations of strategy, grip, stance, footwork, and movement through a series of drills.

Our instructors will also teach you the best knives to carry, where to carry them, and how to deploy them quickly if they’re ever needed. You’ll also learn how to manage distance in your favor and you’ll role-play several potential scenarios so you can develop strategies you can use in real life.

This class will be hands on and active, but there will be plenty of breaks to rest between drills.
