The tactical folding knife is one of today's most popular yet least understood defensive weapons. In this groundbreaking Paladin video production, veteran knife instructor Michael D. Janich guides you through the often misleading and myth-filled world of folding fighting knives and teaches you the skills you need to use them effectively on the street. Janich shatters the commonly held illusions regarding folders and their reliability and reveals little-known secrets of knife selection, carry methods, proper grip and split-second one-handed openings.
Using a "keep it practical" approach, veteran instructor Michael Janich has developed Martial Cane Concepts, a self-defense system specifically geared toward people with physical limitations. In other words, Martial Cane Concepts, is not for the expert stick fighter or martial artist; it's for the 65-year-old man or woman who may actually need to fight for his or her life against a punk prowling for an easy target. After observing that traditional stick-fighting methods require physical training and abilities beyond the grasp of most people who carry a cane out of need, Janich came up with two uncomplicated sequences of techniques that can be applied to many different situations. This approach also makes the system perfect for the non-martial artist who's interested in protecting him- or herself.
