This 2-volume set addresses the role of common items carried for personal protection. It does not cover improvised weapons, but rather focuses on ready made, purpose-built weapons. Moreover it does not address firearms; while common EDC items in some parts of the world, these items have been previously covered in separate stand alone downloads.
The main focus of this series is:
Pocket knives in volume 1 and aerosol, concussive and flashlights in volume 2.
In volume 1 we will begin with a discussion of the idea of every day carry weapons, an understanding of legality and their context in the use of force spectrum along with key considerations in deciding to carry an item. We will explore various styles of popular EDC knives as well as training blade options and explore options for carry and three modalities of access. Then we will strip away the artistry and simplify offensive strategies to brutal gross motor footwork and strategies, barbaric simplified attacks and keep tactics to make blade use as quick and reliable as possible. We will include ideas for improving blade confidence including live cutting and pressure testing to hardwire these strategies into your nervous system.
Whether you are considering the carry of a blade or simply looking to deepen your understanding of the knife wielders mindset, their strategies for carry, access and use, this download is fundamental to navigating the brutal reality of the pocket knife.
