The Intermediate Blade Combat program is a 10-session continuation of Basic Blade Combat training. In this program more advanced concepts are taught in the use of a knife, in a knife against knife environment. Introduction to alternative gripping and attack concepts are developed. The use of alternative force such as punching is incorporated into the training. Developing the skills to attack and dominate a knife-wielding attacker is a main component to the program. Knife limb clamps, take downs and finishes are incorporated. This program will continue to expand on the combative understanding and use of a knife in a hostile environment.
In Intermediate Blade Combat we introduce the student two utilizing two blades. Using the primary hand as a guide to assist the secondary hand allows for a very steep learning curve. Using two blades at once is very impressive and could be romanticized into movie fight scene but it is really used to develop the use of your non dominate hand so that in the event you injure the primary limb you can use the other hand with equal skill.
The Intermediate Blade Combat program is the prerequisite to Advanced Blade Combat.
