Coops's Spontaneous Knife Defence Course in the South East

Post  phil on Mon Sep 24, 2007 4:33 pm

IPDTA Spontaneous Knife Defence

Course Description

The IPDTA Spontaneous Knife Defence System has been designed to meet the needs of ordinary people. The focus of this training is to raise the student's awareness to the simplicity which a person can fall victim to an individual armed with a knife. The training will focus on knife defence techniques, based upon a realistic, yet highly aggressive check and stun philosophy. This system has evolved to the simplest form, where all of skills are gross motor skills that are compatible to the affects of survival stress. This simplicity in design allows for quicker learning and retention under the stress of a knife assault.

Course Topics

Survival Learning Research: We examine research from educational psychology and motor learning science and apply the research to the design of spontaneous knife defence systems.

Analysis of Offensive Knife Attack Strategies: The effectiveness of any knife defence system is based on the knowledge of how a knife can be used offensively. This training block will teach the students the basic knife strokes, and common offensive strategies to quickly disable a victim.

Spontaneous Knife Defence System: The Spontaneous Knife Defence method is based on a check, control and neutralise system. Having learnt how to control the attack, the students will explore the various targets available in order to make the attacker lose the will to fight.

Psychology of Combat Knife System: This section examines various philosophies regarding the tactical use of a knife as a lethal weapon. The research will explore the use of an edged weapon system influenced by the Fairbairn & Sykes system.

Each student will also require a white T shirt for specific scenario drills.

Course fees: 25

As an update, Coops will be training some handgun strips as shown in this thread: http://selfprotection.lightbb.com/Self-Protection-Practical-Martial-Arts-f1/No-frills-weapon-strips-t4376.htm if there's enough time at the end of the session. We've built in a couple of hours, but we all know how these things go. Laughing

Thanks to Phil for organising this and to Coops for a top day of teaching.

I thoroughly enjoyed myself, met some cool people and learnt loads. I particularly "enjoyed" the line up drill at the end. It was great to see everybody put together what they'd learnt under some pressure.

I also really found the presentation at the beginning of the day very informative also. Lots of research there I'd not heard of previously.

Thanks again!

Dan

Cheers Danny.

You probably saw that I wasn't particularly into techniques, more the ideas and concepts. My whole premise is 'don't hesitate, attack now and wait for him to lose the will to resist. I'll leave it there as your probably fed up with me saying it :~)

The violent side apart, I am really pleased that you had an interesting day. I'm especially more than happy to have met Carl B - he actually came along as a student,which in itself is humbling. Bloody hell - my anally retentive self puts together research and you get some propper guys there to try it out. Thanks to all, I hope you got something out of it.

Cheers James. I left Phil gurgitating over the paperwork even after the course - I agree,it really is a thankless task.

Garth, the Carl B I mentioned in my previous post should have read Garth B - I was on the phone with a Carl in the US when I was posting, sorry mate - I don't think the four hour drive back up to Lanc's helped my concentration either. Must've dropped into code white for a sec Very Happy . I'm serious when I say that I felt truly honoured to train with you and I hope you got even a small something out of it and you definitely added a little something to the line drill at the end Wink

Oh, and can I say that I'm knackered too.

In this overly PC world we now live, 'pain' is the next word they are going to ban us from using. From now on the devels of discomfort are:

  • A little something
  • A significant something
  • Something exessive


And any pain cause on a training session on a Sunday will be 'Something for the weekend.' Very Happy

Forget to mention - just to prove I was taking it all in:

I was very nervous before the lineup drill so I slipped into using the autogenic breathing that you showed us - seemed to help

Great stuff all round! Thanks again Very Happy
