Defensive Folding Knife

$275 per student

In this informative and action-packed one-day self defense class you will learn to deploy and use your folding knife with great skill. The Spyderco Delica or similarly styled pocketknife is a superb stand-alone self defense tool and an excellent companion to firearms, pepper spray, and other defensive tools in your family's layered personal protection plan. Most small pocketknives can be carried in any state and in most foreign countries. Always have your knife, especially if you can't have your handgun!

Students will use special training knives to "cut" their way out of mock assaults. This course also integrates defensive knife skills with your defensive handgun skills, so wear your carry gear (inert guns will be provided, bring your own if you have one).

This self defense class is highly recommended for women and teenagers, who are the most likely group to encounter grabs, chokes, and holds with the greatest disparity of force during violent assaults. One day of self defense knife training will allow you to be victorious over an opponent with years of street fighting, martial arts, or wrestling training!

  • Safety considerations during training and during lethal encounters
  • Equipment selection
  • Carry techniques and grip of the knife
  • Rapid deployment from carry positions
  • Vital and non-vital points of the anatomy

Student Testimonials

I just finished Defensive Folding Knife (I), my 3rd Insights class and the perfect way to build on what I learned in General Defensive Handgun and Unarmed Self Defense. I also recently completed a Coed Shooting League II and just signed up for the next one. Each of these classes has delivered all I expected and more, not only in armed and unarmed defense tactics, but equally in terms of mental challenge, awareness and preparedness, which are increasingly reflected in everything I do. The instructors are all at the top of their game; highly professional and motivated to ensure every student gets the maximum return on their investment in time and money. It's obvious they're passionate about passing along their knowledge and skills to anyone willing to put forth the effort to learn. I will continue to take more Insights classes, and plan to return with my daughters when we can make it work for their schedules. I don't know anyone who wouldn't benefit from taking an Insights class (or a few of them if you take one you'll likely come away wanting more). Dave B. Seattle, WA    ~ Dave B., Seattle, WA
