Tactical Knife Training

Knife Survival 

The knife is the most common weapon used by criminals, and the average knife attack lasts a mere 5 seconds.

Defending yourself against this gruesome tool requires an understanding of how today’s prison inmates, criminals, terrorists, martial arts systems, and military units use them.

This course is not a, “Come at me like this” course, but one that teaches you how to survive realistic full speed attacks from a brutal attacker. You’ll learn that there are only 10 directions someone can come at you with a knife, how to avoid being fatally stabbed at the initial moment of attack, what the 21 feet / 7 meter rule is all about and how it can save your life, the life-saving Jim Wagner Disarm Rule that is used by police, military, and prison personnel worldwide.

To understand how to defend against a knife you need to know how to effectively use one yourself in a conflict situation. That’s why we will teach you the proper grip, knife conflict drills that will take you from zero to advance in just 8 hours, and legal issues pertaining to knives in your area.

Combative Fighting Arts plans to continue

Law Enforcement



Department and Unit Training


For those who put their lives on the line – 

Geared towards those who deal with aggressive or non-compliant individuals and situations

We teach Officer Survival and Reality Based Knife / Edged Weapon Survival courses.


Officer Survival is our number one concern. You will only react as well as you have been trained.


Our training is for any size agency and we will customize training to class size and multi-agency participation.


We come to your facility with our equipment, knowledge, and training bringing to you the most necessary survival techniques an officer can have.


Our instructors will put your staff through real-world training and teach how to survive at the most dangerous and often fatal distance – 0 to 6 feet from a suspect.




Our courses are comprehensive hands-on trainings, where we test an officer’s tactical survivability in a close range / knife conflict.  Most importantly we provide and teach you the tools needed to survive.


We will teach the most common attacks and styles of prisoners, terrorists, military, martial arts styles and cultures from around the world.


During the training topics we will teach and challenge participants through drills, scenario exercises, and “wound tracking sparing”.
