We are bringing Knife expert Chris Laing in to run a 3 hour self defense course focusing on knife attack’s. Chris Laing has studied martial arts for over 30 years. He is the owner and instructor at Blue Ridge Kung Fu Arnis Academy of Abingdon, VA and Mountain City, TN. He is a two time inductee into the Filipino Martial Arts Hall of Fame and is a Licensed Police Tactics Instructor through the United States Kali Association.

The seminar will cover several aspects of knife defense tactics. Techniques will begin with “holdup” scenarios, then move into active attacker situations. Students will work on drills to improve tracking and deflecting rapid thrust and slashes from an aggressive attacker. This will transition into parrying attacks into joint locks and disarms. Strategies for close range attack defenses will be covered. The overall goal will be to have the student able to flow between all three ranges during a combat situation and be able so defend themselves against an attacker with a knife! The seminar will be $40 for all 3 hours
