The scope of the tactical edged weapons workshop is designed to offer a realistic view of what to do and how to do it with a fixed blade knife in relation to violent confrontations with a hostile or attacker. One in which the attacker(s) or hostile have the means, ability and intent to do bodily harm and death.

This ‘hands-on’ comprehensive workshop teaches the tactics, techniques and procedures (TTP’s) for successfully dealing with knife on knife conflict and empty hand to knife transitions to engage a hostile subject.

Dr. Jeff Cantor, a recognized expert in edged weapons, leads the training cadre. With decades of experience, Cantor paints a portrait of highly effective TTP’s that elevate your skill level for prevailing in “man on man” knife and violent engagements.
