Counter-Blade Concepts (CBC) is a true system of defensive tactics designed to maximize your chances of survival against real edged-weapon attacks. It is based on more than 30 years of research and training in the world's best knife and counter-knife arts, as well as a critical analysis of actual edged-weapon attacks.

Renowned edged-weapon expert Michael D. Janich begins by teaching you how to minimize injury to yourself while quickly disabling your attacker to make your escape or draw your own weapon. If immediate escape isn't possible, Janich shows you how to control and destroy the attacking limb while you bring a swift and decisive end to the fight, including methods of turning the blade back against your attacker. Finally, he shows you how to integrate these tactics into a comprehensive system designed to defeat knives, screwdrivers, box cutters and other edged weapons and the thugs who wield them. For information purposes only.


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.

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.
