The PPCT Spontaneous Knife Defensive system is designed to provide the officer with a means to successfully defend themselves against an edged weapon assault during an encounter where the use of deadly force is not practical or perhaps not available. This program when completed will give the officer/student the skills necessary to deflect, control, or disengage from an edged weapon attack.
Program topics will include: Limitations and Capabilities of the Edged Weapon, Principals of Edged Weapon Assaults, Fundamentals of Knife Martial Arts and the Knife Defensive Systems.
Each student must attend the program in its entirety, along with passing both a comprehensive written and physical skills exam. Successful completion will enable the new instructor to return to their respective department and instruct the Knife Defense system at the Basic/User level and offer certification. Students will need to be physically prepared for a challenging three days as this program mandates an abundance of physical skills practice.
