144 - Aide-mémoire: Oct '21 week three
Revision content and ideas from the past week's workshops
We’ve had some great progress at October’s workshops - several new trainees have joined us for the beginner training on Tuesday nights and are doing really well. It’s very positive to have a complete mix now of male and female trainees as this brings a bigger picture to training.
After an intense period of preparation work, private training has now moved to advanced exploration of surviving and escaping knife attacks.
With one in five violent crimes in the UK now involving weapons (in many cases a knife) according to the latest figures this has for a long time been one of our main areas of focus - how to maximise the chances of surviving and escaping for the average member of the public.
We’ve had very good success getting to this point with the foundation of basic training and also our own knife sets (published here on the Journal) and meticulous step by step work which have paved the way for much more realistic force on force simulations.
Many thanks to our trainees whose dedication and hard work made this possible.
