Paladin's documentation of personal security and counterterrorism expert Kelly McCann's in-your-face, combat-proven Individual Protective Measures Course continues in this third volume of the series. Drawing upon principles taught in his best-selling Combatives video series, McCann first teaches wall techniques: unarmed combative techniques designed to turn the tables on your attacker when he has you pinned against the wall with one or both hands. Next, he shows you how to deal effectively with a straight punch, perhaps the most difficult punch to defend against. From there, he goes into realistic unarmed defenses against shoulder weapons, such as rifles and shotguns. 

Then, for the first time captured on video, McCann teaches his no-nonsense knife fighting program, focusing on carry methods of the tactical folding knife, rapid opening and deployment when under attack, snap-cutting to keep your opponent at bay, use of the knife when closed and unarmed defense against knife attacks. For information purposes only.


Kelly McCann is one of America's foremost experts on personal and corporate security, armed and unarmed combat, and antiterrorist tactics. As the CEO of Crucible Security Specialists, he and his staff have provided security training for audiences ranging from elite U.S. counterterrorist units to Fortune 500 executives. He is also known to the public as "Jim Grover," former personal security editor for Guns and Ammo magazine and noted author of numerous instructional videos on armed and unarmed close combat and the best-selling book Street Smarts, Firearms, and Personal Security.

Stickgrappler's Note: I am guessing the Paladin site will be shut down at the end of the year and I'm archiving select Paladin Press pages to my blog to preserve an essential part of martial arts from 1970-2017. Archiving some of my favorite Paladin titles.
