At S2 Strategic Defense, we LOVE our Edged Weapons! They are an amazing tool for self defense and available almost anywhere! Like anything else self defense related, proper training is the platform for functional skills.


If you are interested in learning how to use your edged weapon as a tool for self defense, this introductory class is the answer. The course is designed to teach the student the primary pillars of edged weapon tactics, training methods, and science. We will not be teaching you the artistic expression or a martial arts based version. This course has only one goal in mind…to develop real world skills for using an edged weapon for self defense.


You’ll Learn:

  • Posture and Positioning
  • Grip Methods and Purpose
  • Universal Dynamic Movements
  • Combinations of Offense/Defense
  • Distancing
  • Footwork
  • Targeting
  • Training Methods (Solo and Partnered)
  • And Much More

This is not a seminar format! Attendees should plan on being physically active, taking notes, and spending a lot of time drilling. There is NO replacement for actual training!


Attendees must be 18+ years of age. We will supply the training equipment. Attendees should bring activewear, notebook/pens, and a great attitude.


Held On Friday’s at 6pm to 7pm.
