Edge Weapon Overview:

The Edged Weapons Overview course is a 16 hour focused overview of knife application methods that will give the student a fundamental and broad understanding of edged weapons. Like all ShivWorks courses EWO is contextually underscored and emphasizes conceptual framework applied through the minimalist, functional toolbox. All software is presented from the “reductionist’s” point of view to maximize retention and maintenance efficiency. Topics to be covered in the course include:

Managing Unknown Contacts
Default Position and basic blows
Tool Survey
Robust Folder Deployment
Theory of In-Fight Weapons Access
In-Extremis application

Day Two:

Plyometric Fighting Platform
Point Theory, forward and reverse grip
Conventional Edge introduction
Refining the narrow angle
Reverse Edge introduction
The Functional Support Hand
Specialty and Improvised Edged tools (push daggers, icepicks, screwdrivers, etc.). This module is largely based on what students bring to the class and wish to see addressed.

Equipment Required: Comfortable clothes, wrap-around eye protection, mouthpiece and cup, preferred carry knives.

Advanced registration is required and this class is expected to fill quickly as a Shivworks Classes always do.
