About This Course:

Handguns are excellent weapons, but often you will be unable to carry one due to travel, clothing, area restrictions, or your own skill level.   Other times call for “less than lethal” techniques where you seek only to immobilize or stop an attack.  While the baton and even the ASP has fallen out of favor with some police forces, there is a definite place for them in the repetoire of weaponry.  In addition, understanding how to utilize a baton opens up many possibilities for the use of improvised weapons when you find yourself without.

If you would like to learn both offensive and defensive techniques, this is a course you won’t want to miss.

In addition to baton type weapons, this course will touch on knives and other weapons of opportunity.

Equipment to Bring:

ASPs / Batons / Escrima Sticks.  If you have one, bring it.  If you don’t, we will provide.

Training Knives. While we believe in realistic training, we want to keep you safe.  If you have rubber, plastic, or dull training knives bring them.  Otherwise we will provide.

MMA style gloves. You will want some sort of gloves.  Boxing gloves will not work.  If you don’t have MMA gloves bring something like Mechanixwear gloves.  We will have these available if you can’t find.


Lafayette, Indiana, United States
