COURSES

Defensive Knife and Pistol with Rassa

Duration 

The carrying of a knife clipped in a pants pocket has become commonplace; however, most who carry these tools have never been formally trained, and if they have it may not be the most practical or realistic training.

In most cases the knife has a utility purpose, but the need may quickly arise to utilize it as a defensive weapon. Along the lines of the Extreme Close Quarters Battle training programs, this is an all-inclusive course that teaches the end user in the use of a knife as both a utility tool and as a defensive tool of opportunity. This course has been specifically designed to address the needs of sworn law enforcement and the responsible armed citizen.

Prerequisite 

This is an intermediate level class. The student needs to know and be able to demonstrate safe gun handling, weapon system familiarity, foundational marksmanship skills, and working from a holster.

Students failing to meet and maintain our safety requirements and/or who cannot meet and immediately demonstrate the minimum skills required for the specific class may be removed from training. Please ensure you have read through the class description and fully understand our prerequisites before registering.
