Here’s the full course brief:

Knife Management #1 (Active Threat)

Aim:
To present workable strategies, tactics and techniques to reduce, counter, and survive a worst-case continuous assault by an assailant with a knife or similar weapon.

Scope:
A hostile, committed, close-proximity adversary armed with a knife represents the worst-case personal combat scenario. No guarantees can be provided – reducing lethality, increasing survivability, and improving reactive-countermeasure options are the overall focus of this seminar.

Content:
• Weapon Carry & Access Indicators
• Pre-Emptive Impact Options
• Draw Obstruction & Interruption
• Attack Interception & Stabilisation
• Post-Incident Checks & Self-Aid

Format:
There will be progressive, continual force-on-force drilling, involving light to substantial impact, utilising a combination of protective equipment and solid training weapons, and incorporating full-resistance grappling.

Duration:
The seminar will be delivered over a 4-5 hour period, inclusive of breaks.

Dress & Equipment:
Comfortable training clothes, indoor non-marking footwear essential, ensure nothing is worn that might injure a training partner. Personal protective equipment such as gumshields and groin protectors are mandatory. Note-taking material and fluids are recommended.

Eligibility:
Pre-attendance of Combat Management and Contact Management seminars, and/or the Foundation Course, is strongly recommended but not essential. Ages over 18 only.

Knife Management #2 (Passive Threat)

Aim:
To present workable strategies, tactics and techniques to address the presence of a knife or similar weapon, where an assault is not yet in-progress.

Scope:
The presence of a knife being brandished at close-proximity, for the purpose of intimidation and coercion, or as a precursor to an active physical assault, presents a limited window of opportunity for effective active-countermeasure options – and these are the focus of this seminar.

Content:
• Contact Management Assessment
• Weapon Containment & Control
• Positional & Postural Dominance
• Impactive Countermeasures
• Post-Incident Checks & Self-Aid

Format:
There will be progressive, continual force-on-force drilling, involving light to substantial impact, utilising a combination of protective equipment and solid training weapons, and incorporating full-resistance grappling.

Duration:
The seminar will be delivered over a 4-5 hour period, inclusive of breaks.

Dress & Equipment:
Comfortable training clothes, indoor non-marking footwear essential, ensure nothing is worn that might injure a training partner. Personal protective equipment such as gumshields and groin protectors are mandatory. Note-taking material and fluids are recommended.

Eligibility:
Pre-attendance of Combat Management and Contact Management seminars, and/or the Foundation Course, is strongly recommended but not essential. Ages over 18 only.
