You’ll leave the course with the breadth of information and practical skills required to allow you to use your blade to disengage from any fight quickly and effectively!

I don’t use the term knife fighting. When two remotely skilled people go at it with a blade, it’s not really a fight, its more of a contest of who dies last…

Aegis Academy’s Introduction to Edged Weapons class, taught by Steve Tarani, was amazing! I went into the class having zero background with edged weapons… As a woman, I feel much safer having taken this training from Aegis Academy!
