September 7 - September 8


This two-day course integrates empty hand, edged weapon, and pistol combatives. Many people lose sight of the fact that conflict is a continuum not isolated elements, and that armed and unarmed conflict, especially in extreme close quarters, require the ability to move seamlessly through the available options.

  • Practical application of grappling in an armed environment
  • Employment and retention of tools in a violent encounter
  • Continuum of conflict 
  • Scenario drills
