I know we've said this before, but this is one of the absolute best classes in personal self defense that NEShooters, LLC offers. The skills you will learn can be used anywhere, with or without a knife. They complement your firearms training. Life-critical skills at their finest.

In this two-day seminar, Michael Janich will present comprehensive instruction in the fundamental skills of his MBC system and the progressive training methods necessary to make them into defensive reflexes.

This course will provide step-by-step instruction in the fundamental skills of using a knife as a defensive weapon, including:

  • knife carry
  • high-speed deployment
  • recognition and identification of common street attacks
  • defensive responses
  • anatomical targeting
  • the realities of knife stopping power

Building on this foundation, it will introduce progressive training methods and reflex training drills to accelerate skill development and combat reflexes. Finally, it will include detailed instruction in MBC's close-quarters reverse-grip system and the methods of adapting that system to improvised weapons, including Kubotans, pens, and tactical flashlights.

Students should bring purpose-designed training knives (ideally folding trainers that closely replicate your carry knife) and eye protection. Also extremely useful for first time students would be a “
478 Thigh Wrap” (or similar). If you do not know how this helps, please let us know and we'll be happy to explain!
