Knife Defense Instructor Training Course

Self Defense Knife Instructor Training Course for law enforcement security and military personnel designed for surviving a knife attack. The threat of a knife attack is a serious encounter for any member of law enforcement with potentially deadly consequences for the officer. There are many knife defense courses available that don’t focus on the reality of an attack. The attack is normally unexpected and within a short distance of the officer which doesn’t always allow for immediate access to a firearm. The importance of knowing how to defend yourself from an edged weapon attack is of utmost importance. The techniques in this course are practical and realistic for attacks that officers have experienced in the field. This course is not one of those courses where we tell you won’t get cut or stabbed during a spontaneous attack, but we will give you the most practical defense to be able to survive an attack, and we as police officers go into homes each day where a knife will be present. The knife is easily concealable and easily deployed by an attacker with little effort. We’ve developed a course we know will increase the chances of an officer surviving one of these attacks, and we look forward to sharing that knowledge with you as an instructor. We also share our award-winning teaching methods within this course that will improve you as an instructor. The students attending this course will also receive an illustrated instruction manual along with a free instructor shirt. This is one of our most popular courses!

Cancellation Policy

The course cancellation policy requires a minimum of a 15-day prior notice from the course start date when a student will not be attending the course. The notification to not attend will be made by email through our website, and if they identify no replacement student, cancellations with less than a 15-day notice will cause a department credit that can be used towards another future training event within one year from the original course date. We will charge no-shows without email notification the full course fee, even if the payment has not already been made. We offer a one-year future course credit as well for any no show that is charged a full course fee. This policy is in effect as of June 23, 2021, and you as a representative of your agency agree to abide by this policy by registering for any course. Please contact us by email or phone if you have questions about this cancellation policy. This policy is in place because of students that register for courses and take training slots without attending training, which removes the opportunity for another officer to attend. We pay the instructors teaching these programs based on the number of officers scheduled to attend the event, and we base our travel cost including instructor pay on registration fees. This policy is considered a binding contract between BSTS LLC and the student or student agency or company.
