Weapons: Daggers/Knives/Short Sticks/Pieces of Pool Noodle -- I can supply if necessary

Multiple instructors pressure tested numerous knife attack survival skills and interestingly enough, they have generally come to similar conclusions and framed a similar skillset. Also, interestingly enough, there is a great deal of overlap with plays and strategies in the sources. Modern skills in this workshop will draw upon, Jerry Wetzel’s Red Zone, Karl Tanswell’s STAB program, and Burton Richardson’s Battlefield Kali.
