Description

The threat of a knife attack is a serious encounter for any member of law enforcement with potential deadly consequences for the officer. There are many knife defense courses available that don’t focus on the reality of an attack. The attack is normally unexpected and within a short distance of the officer, which doesn’t always allow for immediate access of a firearm. The importance of knowing how to defend yourself from an edged weapon attack is of utmost importance. The techniques in this course are practical and realistic for attacks that officers have experienced in the field. This course is not one of those courses where we tell you won’t get cut or stabbed during a spontaneous attack, but we will give you the most practical defense to be able to survive an attack. We as police officers go into homes each day where a knife will be present. The knife is easily concealable, and easily deployed by an attacker with little effort. We’ve developed a course we know will increase the chances of an officer surviving one of these attacks, and look forward to sharing that knowledge with you as an instructor. We also share our award winning teaching methods within this course that will improve you as an instructor. The students attending this course will also receive an illustrated instructor manual along with a free instructor shirt. This is one of our most popular courses!

    I had the honor of going through the Knife Defense instructor course with Ray of Blueshield Tactical Systems. As a Marine, Deputy Sheriff and a fellow Martial Artist, I highly recommend and endorse Blueshield Tactical for all of your training needs. Ray and his staff are the ultimate professionals.

    I just completed a Knife Defense Instructor Course. Thank you, Ray Beshirs of Blue Shield Tactical. The course focused on a balance of defensive tactics, instructor development, legal, and use of force. Ray is very knowledgeable and his method of instruction is exceptional. Blue Shield Tactical offers several courses and I highly recommend them for training.

    I’ve been to a lot of “high speed” training that looked cool and didn’t work outside of the training environment. This course is the opposite of that. It teaches simple, effective concepts that an officer on the street can quickly learn, and use. Knife attacks against officers and civilians are becoming more commonplace, and this is a much needed training topic for first responders.
    If you’re a DT instructor, this is the class you’re looking for.

    No nonsense, down to the basics, functional, and effective training curriculum for Law Enforcement and students of the general public. This Knife Defense Instructor course gives you the knowledge to teach the fundamental skills to not only increase survivability of a knife attack but to turn the tables on your attacker. Thank you Ray.

    Great no nonsense, basic life saving skills taught in the class. I highly recommend attending this class even if you have to pay for it yourself, like I did, it’s very much worth it. Ray brings the knowledge from being a 20 year police veteran and his extensive martial arts background to this class and teaches in very positive learning environment. Thank you Ray and Blue Shield Tactical for an outstanding Instructor course.

    Excellent class with a motivated instructor! I walked in with little experience in knife defense and walked out feeling confident that I could stay in the fight, end the fight in my favor, and share my knowledge easily wiith officer I work beside.

    Great class with useful street applicable information. I have had some knife related martial arts classes in the past but the information in this class is more effective in a violent confrontation than most the techniques I’ve seen in the past. The most important part of this class is watching the instructors teaching style and trying to bring that back to my agency.

    This is an extremely useful course for developing a program that uses simple techniques for minimizing risk to officers in a knife attack. The techniques are kept simple and easy to learn and train. It makes the program very easy to incorporated into shift training or short training sessions.

    Have had a great time in this training. As the first knife defense course of any kind it was a lot of information but needed. Even for someone with no experience in martial arts or anything other than DT’s it was easy and simple to understand.

    Great class. Being that I have no martial arts experience I appreciate the step by step instruction. I feel that I am ready to go and teach my co-workers what I’ve learned here.

    Great course with very realistic application for any edged weapon defense. Ray keeps the class positive and upbeat and presents the material in a very fluid manner with each technique transitioning into the next application. Very much enjoyed the class and would recommend it.

    Heather Hansen

    I found this course to be extremely helpful! The concepts work naturally with one another so we aren’t required to learn tons of different things, just a few simple techniques. Any staff should be able to take at least one morsel of goodness, no matter their skill or confidence level! Thank you Blue Shield Tactical Systems!

    Recently attend this course. This was my 2nd Blue Shield Tactical course, and as always it was great. I’ve taken knife defense instructor courses before, but that were more martial arts applicable. Ray bridges the gap, between martial arts and law enforcement being both a cop and martial artist himself. I liked the concept based approach with very easy to grasp techniques that will work for the basic officer. The “shock knife” allowed us to pressure test what we had learned. Highly, highly recommend.

    As a former Army Infantry soldier with combat tours and an 11 year police veteran I have been exposed to a lot of training and many real world application. Hands down this is one of the best “short” courses I have ever attended. In addition to some new techniques/tools to bring back to my department, this is one of the ONLY courses I have attended in law enforcement that interjects HOW to be a teacher and HOW to teach a course. As others have mentioned, the “shock knife” application SHOWS you the instructor and your officers that these techniques will work in a real world spontaneous knife attack.

    I recently attended the Knife Defense Instructor course in Bartlesville, Oklahoma taught by Master Instructor Ray Beshirs. In my 19 years of law enforcement, I have not attended a training where I left wishing it was longer. The curriculum, teaching methodology was by far the best tactics course I’ve taken. Every technique is very applicable to law enforcement and civilians alike. The instructor made it a point to make everyone feel inclusive and moved at their learning ability and pace. It was worth the 16 hour flight!

    This was one of the best courses that I have been through in my law enforcement career. Not only were we taught a valuable, yet simple, skill set, we also were given great tips on how to actually instruct the techniques successfully. Blue Shield Tactical does a great job teaching us the skills that are needed for our jobs, instead of the check mark on old outdated defense programs. I look forward to taking more courses in the future.

    I attended this class, in Oklahoma with Ray, and as a 30 year plus Master Peace Officer, and instructor, I found Ray’s teaching methods refreshing and easily learned. The program is spot on, and provides the user with the right blend of real world application, and provides for growth as an instructor. Highly Recommend for first time or long time instructors.
