Event description
TriCom | Edged Weapon Countermeasures & Duty Knife as a Backup Weapon

About this event

Statistically more lethal than firearms assaults at extreme close-quarters, edged weapons are a constant threat that law enforcement officers must be aware of and prepared to defend against on a daily basis. The goal of this course is not to avoid “martial arts” techniques, but to analyze what martial artists have learned from centuries of trial and error, and hand pick the techniques, tactics and procedures that have the highest probability of success for the average law enforcement officer who is often neither a martial artist, nor has the opportunity to train on a regular basis. Day 1 focuses on Edged Weapon Countermeasures and lays the foundation for Day 2 which dives into Duty Knife as a Backup Weapon (Support Tool). The workshop is specifically developed for law enforcement in alignment with the National Use of Force framework.

This course includes at a minimum:

  • Identifying edged weapon threats as early as possible.
  • Exploiting optimal angles of approach and engagement.
  • Learning strikes and joint manipulations that have the highest probability of success in the “Adrenal State”.
  • Focus on Gross Motor movement and actions that prepare the officer for success when experiencing physiological stress symptoms.
  • Integrating available use-of-force options.
  • Dynamic simulation and micro-scenario drills.

Registration: The workshop is restricted to sworn law enforcement officers, military, security professionals and vetted civilians. Participants may register via Eventbrite or e-Transfer. Please note, Eventbrite charges a handling fee. Payments sent via e-Transfer does not have a handling fee.
