Edged weapons pose a serious threat to the safety of police and correctional officers. This course begins with a comprehensive study on offensive knife systems. The focus of this training is to raise the student's awareness to the sophistication of strategies, yet the simplicity which an officer can fall victim to a moderately trained subject with a knife. The second phase of training will focus on the PPCT Knife Defense techniques, based upon a realistic, yet highly aggressive check and stun philosophy. The simplicity in design allows for quick learning and retention under the stress of a knife assault. The course was designed by PPCT Management Systems, Inc., a leader in subject control training systems.
This 24 hour instructor course prepares students to instruct the PPCT Spontaneous Knife Defense basic course, refines the student’s physical technique, and presents instructional methods for teaching survival skills.
