Patrol Knife Tactics Training Course

Designed for law enforcement knife tactics involving the use of the patrol knife, and considerations concerning policy and training considerations. We've found that almost every officer in an agency will carry an edged tool at some point in their career, but you'll soon discover that most have had no training when it comes to the use of this tool, which is the reason this high demand course was created. Most officers couldn't tell you why they selected the knife they currently carry or where to carry the knife on their bodies. The knife is great for getting someone off of you where you can't access your firearm, or the situation is too close to attempt to access a firearm. This 2-day (16 hour) course was developed specifically for law enforcement officers, and the primary purpose of this training is to educate officers on the tactical folder as a tool and as a weapon for defense. The training will also cover the fundamentals necessary for surviving an edged weapon attack and for using a knife in a deadly force encounter to stop an immediate lethal threat when no other force options are available. Due to the depth of information regarding knives and their use, this course will focus mainly on tactical folders for law enforcement EDC. You won't find another course currently on the market that offers this kind of training to law enforcement by law enforcement instructors. This course will fill up quickly due to the high demand for this type of training!

  1. Chase Zavoina

    This class was phenomenal. It will open your eyes to not just knife attacks and the high probability tactics to defend against them, but also the numerous weapons of opportunity that you must be aware of.

  2. Tommy Wagnon-Farmers Branch PD 17yrs

    This was an excellent course which provided a realistic approach to edged weapon defense and offense. Jim Webster is very knowledgeable of the subject matter and presented the class clearly and provided techniques and concepts that are easy to learn and have a higher probability of success than traditional martial arts weapon defenses. Can’t wait to implement the lessons from this course into my department’s Defensive Tactics training.

  3. Damon Taylor

    An essential, yet easily overlooked area that all officers should know. The course content is well balanced between conceptual and practical exercises. Instructor was highly knowledgeable and his teaching style made it easy to understand and apply the material. Use of various training tools and hands on exercises help solidify retention of the material. Highly recommend for any officer, especially patrol officers.

    Jim Webster was a great instructor for law enforcement. Practical tools, concepts, and physical and mental reps packed into the class. I would recommend this training to my fellow patrol officers.

  18. Randy Dorr

    The course opens ones eyes to how quickly a knife attack can happen. Working in the knife flow drills helps with understanding the principles of knife attacks via the angles and how to defend against the slash. The one on one sparring with the training knives help with the footwork. Jim Webster knows what he is talking about and breaks down the principles so they are easy to understand.

  19. Ben

  22. R. Jones

    This course was very well worth while. The hands on application made the class enjoyable and allowed for the core concepts to be learned.

  23. K.Kotfila

    Loved the hands on aspect. Never would have thought to use a knife as a defensive weapon, but another great tool to have.

  24. J. Sparks

    Great class and well taught. Hands on demos were organized and realistic. All drills were made for police officers and not for a ninja. Well done.
