For the first time captured on video, this is Kelly McCann's street-proven knife fighting curriculum in its entirety. Functional, simple and lethal, this system doesn't rely on complicated trapping and locking, robotic flow drills claiming to simulate real combat, or finesse-filled knife dancing. Easily recalled under the duress of actual danger, Kem-'ba-tiv Knife vastly increases your reaction speed through its direct movements and straightforward techniques. The goal of this curriculum is to stop the threat, either by inflicting enough pain so that your attacker is unwilling to continue, causing enough damage so that he is unable to continue, or, if necessary, resorting to lethal force. McCann would not teach this system if it hadn't proven itself time and again in the most dangerous environments imaginable. Can other knife fighting systems say the same? 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 history from 1970-2017. Archiving some of my favorite Paladin titles.
