2 Days Knife Defence Training in Ottawa, ON

June 8 & 9 in Ottawa, ON! Two full days of training with Richard Dimitri & Yours Truly! A small glimpse into some of the Knife Defence training concepts you can expect. Language Warning for some in this video, but understand that violence is normally accompanied by some bad bad words so maybe time to get over it! :0) Just a few of the topics addressed and questioned: 1) Do you stabilize the weapon hand or strike first? 2) Static vs Dynamic Knife Attacks. 3) Clear, Control and Counter. 4) How multiple variables might affect the scenario. Registration will be limited, and confirmation of your attendance must be made before June 1, 2019. For more information, email Chris Roberts at This email address is being protected from spambots.
