The Protective Knife & Weapon Retention: An Introduction

This is NOT a martial arts knife fighting course! The class is designed to teach officers how to use a knife as a weapon retention tool for their firearms, a utility tool, and more. This is NOT a class teaching how to defend against a knife attack! This course is designed for everyday law enforcement and military personnel and teaches them how to use an edged weapon to protect themselves. Be proactive, not reactive. This introductory course provides official training on a piece of equipment officers normally carry on duty, but have probably never been trained how to use. Participants will learn when it is legally and tactically appropriate to use a knife. Various knives will be provided for training; the course discusses both folding and fixed blade knives. RESTRICTED TO LEOs and MILITARY only.
