PPCT Spontaneous Knife Defense Instructor Re-Cert

The PPCT Spontaneous Knife Defense System is designed to meet the needs of students who are confronted by a spontaneous knife assault and unable to retrieve a weapon.  It is based upon a realistic, yet highly aggressive, check-and stun philosophy that employs gross motor skills that are compatible with the effects of survival stress.  It reviews the fundamentals of basic knife systems; reviews the common grips, types of strokes, and lines of attack; and reviews defense strategies for both stalking assaults and spontaneous assaults inside the reactionary gap.  This is a Recertification class only.  Bring your manual
