What if you were caught in a real-world active threat situation and you were unarmed, had nowhere to run and no one nearby to help you? What if you had the physical skills and self-confidence to use anything you can get your hands on to solve the problem?
IWC – Impact Weapons Course
In this course of instruction, you will be taught how to use any of these and more as an impact weapon. The most innocuous yet most effective of these is the walking stick or cane which few people know can be used as a VERY effective defensive weapon. Unlike a gun or a knife, it can be carried on an airplane and in countries where both firearms and edged weapons are not permitted. A broomstick handle, pipe or wooden dowel are equally as effective against a violent physical attack
Learn defensive concepts and technique to include: carry, access, rapid deployment, overall safe handling and manipulation of hand-held impact weapons in self-defense. In addition to striking, they can be used to deflect an incoming attack, take down single or multiple attackers, and allow you to control the situation at a safe distance.
This course includes defense against a sudden attack with any edged or impact weapon or weaponless attacks such as multiple armed assailants placing your life or bodily injury at risk with no time to escape or any other options.
