Two choices of venue: Looking for interest in one more weekend of this course being offered
Okeechobe, Fla [ S Fla. ] or Lake Mary, Fla. [ central Fla. ]
This course is a compilation of materials I've offered in my women’s self defense courses, WW2 unarmed combative's seminars and while the defensive edged weapons instructor for the S+W Academy, Springfield, Ma..
Skills that will create time and distance to allow you to access your own weapon or get away. The first day is unarmed training.
How to break away from being grabbed by the arm with one hand
How to break away from being grabbed by the arm with both hands
How to break away and escape from being choked from the front
How to break away and escape from being choked from behind
The use of the Chin Jab, Y-Hand, Axe-Hand to effect releases
Techniques using a pen or kubaton type implement to strike to the face, hands, wrists and ribs to affect an immediate release by the attacker.
Several open hand palm strikes and slapping skills that devastate the opponent and allow escapes depending on where you strike. You may not even need to go to guns with these. Quick to learn, easy to perform under duress, these skills were taught to covert agents behind enemy lines in Germany in the 40's with great success in the real world of combatives.
The second day of training will include the following skills:
Surviving the first second of a knife attack while unarmed. Learn just 6 skills that cover the full range of how a knife will be used against you and how to survive the initial attack using a collapsing startle response and protecting the bodies core from the blade.
Learn how to get away from being a hostage with a knife to your neck from the front and from behind. These are very easy to learn, so simple most people would not think of them. The police officers just couldn't believe how easy these were to keep from being taken hostage.
Defending with the folder or short straight blade against an attacker. Learn how to utilize that folding knife or short straight blade from the kitchen drawer to minimize or negate damage from an aggressor’s knife. We’ll cover knife carry positions; accessing the folder from various carry positions; the three grip positions commonly used with a knife and their respective strengths and weaknesses, as well as how to use the “Wall of Edge” to defend yourself against someone with a knife. The wall of edge was one of the first skills I learned from my mentors and it’s still one of the best at defending yourself from a knife attack.
We’ll cover: Manual Dexterity Drills with blade
1. Knife carry positions
2. Accessing blade from carry positions
3. Saber grip to reverse–low line
4. Saber grip to reverse---low line to reverse high line
5. Changing hands–saber to saber

Stabbing defenses; Slashing defenses; Overhand defenses

This course offers men and women the opportunity to learn fast, simple, effective skills that are distilled down to the best of the best and taken from several disciplines and courses.
The course doesn’t require any previous training or experience in self defense, does not require you to be physically fit nor lead an active lifestyle to be able to effect a positive resolution if you are physically assaulted. All that is required of the student is to wear your daily street clothes, sneakers and be willing to learn skills that can save your life or that of someone with you.
If you are interested in attending and holding a slot for this seminar, you may email me at arizonaqkr "at" yahoo dot com for contact information.
First 16 or more for either venue, I'll make the arrangements. This is plenty of notice if you would like to attend.
List your preference for LM or Okee venue. In 2016, I was getting 300.00 for the weekend, this event will be offered at 250.00 but I'll need the 16 to make it worth flying in. I'll keep a running list below. Already have 5 signed on from another forum for either venue

The situation will NEVER BE THE WAY YOU WANT, it WILL BE THE WAY IT IS. You must be FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO ADAPT and just "DEAL WITH IT".
I presume both these locations are in Florida?
Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth.
Everyone wants to eat, but few are willing to hunt....
Sounds like a great class

Lake Mary is about two hours closer for me each way, but I can make Okeechobee work, too. I'm in.
