The tactical folding knife is one of today's most popular yet least understood defensive weapons. In this groundbreaking Paladin video production, veteran knife instructor Michael D. Janich guides you through the often misleading and myth-filled world of folding fighting knives and teaches you the skills you need to use them effectively on the street. Janich shatters the commonly held illusions regarding folders and their reliability and reveals little-known secrets of knife selection, carry methods, proper grip and split-second one-handed openings. He then presents a comprehensive hands-on course in folding knife tactics, including cutting and thrusting methods, defensive responses, reflex training drills, secrets of high-speed combination cutting and the realities of knife stopping power. Janich also shows you how to combine empty-hand skills, rapid deployment techniques and knife tactics to make the folder an invaluable ally in close-quarter combat.
