New Weapons Class Available on Sunday Mornings

From the instructor, Kris Rhodes:


Martial Blade Concepts/MBC is a system of self-defense designed to teach you how to fight effectively with a knife.  Counter Blade Concepts/CBC teaches empty hand defense against knife attacks.  The five concepts below summarise the philosophy of MBC/CBC.

1.  We train to stop an attack not kill.

2.  Cut Structural Targets to disable an attacker (stop the threat).

3.  Commonality of Technique

4.  5 Areas of Attack
5.   “You don’t have to fight like me you just have to win.” –Michael Janich
