The cheapest, easiest-to-gain, and most common weapon used in violence is the knife (and other forms of edged weapons). Just as treacherous as a gun at close range, the knife is by far one of the deadliest tools used in violent confrontations — and we can easily find one in just about every kitchen.
Whether you’re a civilian, self-defense instructor, healthcare worker, or security professional, the SAFE International knife-defense course covers the psychology behind a knife attack, recognition of behavioural patterns, body language, how to evade and escape, and dozens of drills to improve your close-quarter arsenal against a knife-wielding attacker.
Knife attacks are frightening. Because each situation has so many variables, there can never be any guarantee of the outcome for any self-defense system. But you can increase your chances of success and survival, even with all those variables at play.
That’s why our knife-defense training is conceptual rather than systematic through choreographed “techniques.”
As we do in all our courses, we start with instructing you on concepts to avoid confrontation. But sometimes physical interaction becomes unavoidable, so we also teach functional skills to enhance your survivability in a knife attack.
There are no techniques to memorize, no frills — just plain truth on defending yourself in a knife attack.
Knife-Defense Scenario-Replication Training
One of the missing links in most self-defense training is the opportunity to do drills that replicate scenarios realistically. Yet this training is immeasurable because it allows the client to experience the stress and adrenaline rush they will encounter and learn how to respond. Thus, we combine realistic verbal attacks with the aggression of a genuine attack.
Our training recreates scenarios you may face, whether as a civilian or related to your work, with drills in specific locations like the home, car, workplace, or street.
We also address details you may not think of — like what to do if you hit the hard ground, which could have glass or needles on it. Details like these are essential to discuss.
Whether you’re looking to schedule training for yourself or your security staff, hospital workers, or your family, SAFE International has a wide array of course lengths and options.
