There are many different ways in which an aggressor might attack using a blunt or edged weapon. We begin our weapon disarm training by focusing on three basic angles of attack: overhead, from the side, and thrusting straight in.
The first three techniques that all our students learn for each of these three angles of attack all contain the same elements: blocking the attack, controlling the weapon hand, striking the attacker and taking the weapon. Understanding, applying and mastering these principals leads to effective defense from all manners of attack.
