World-renowned knife expert Michael D. Janich takes his no-nonsense, get-home-alive folding knife tactics to the next level in this explosive video production from Paladin Press. Building on the foundation of technique established with his best-selling Fighting Folders, Janich continues your education through step-by-step instruction in knife fighting footwork, live-hand tactics, high-speed disarms and advanced reflex training drills. He then shows you how to integrate these elements into a state-of-the-art training program that realistically simulates virtually every conceivable street attack. Finally, Janich teaches you how to turn theory into application, revealing the secrets of combat knife draws, tactical folder defenses from disadvantaged positions, and the tactics of "Speed Stops" – lightning-fast defenses that immediately disable an attacker upon contact. Hone your defensive skills as sharp as your blade with this ultimate guide to the tactical folding knife.


Michael D. Janich is one of the foremost modern authorities on handgun point shooting and one of the few contemporary instructors to have personally trained with the late close-combat legend Col. Rex Applegate. In addition to making his own martial arts equipment, noted martial arts author and instructor Michael Janich has designed and engineered everything from blowguns to knives, including the highly acclaimed Masters of Defense Tempest folding knife.

Index of Paladin Press site archived pages:

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.
