Leslie Buck and I presented a class on Edged Weapon Dynamics and Defense at his Tactical Arts Academy school on August 9th 2009.This course was sponsored by the Texas Police Association, Tactical Arts Academy and Tactical Kali. Leslie Buck was a gracious host opening his doors to this training.
The course lecture covered topics on the dynamics of edged weapons, study on how assaults occur, understanding human performance,reaction time, pre-attack cues, and use of force. Hands on topic covered avoidance drills, footwork and body dynamics to avoid knife thrusts, stunning tactics, take downs, control holds, and ground escape and counters. Leslie also showed his collections of Philippine and Indonesian blades filled with historical and cultural significance.
What can I say about the students? They were great!!!! The students took the training seriously and displayed positive energy that made the course fun. Please check out Leslie's school at http://www.tacticalarts.net for future training programs.
On September 20th we will present another course on weapon retention, weapon disarming and use of improvised weaponry.This is ideal for military, law enforcement, private security and concealed handgun licensed holders. See you there.
