training course "Certified Knife Fighting Expert"
2 week intensive training course
Knives have been around ever since the Stone Age as both tools and weapons. They are relatively cheap, they can be acquired almost anywhere in the world, most of them are legal to buy and possess, and they can be even home-made from many materials. Knives are perfect back-up and even primary weapons. One of the most formidable weapons to have at home for personal defense is a sharp sword...
Also, knives are omnipresent in many countries of the world. It is thus very important for security operators to know how to handle a knife and how to defend against a knife. Some types of knives, in our opinion, are more versatile and useful as weapons, as others. We believe that the WW II type smatchet and the Nepalese KUKRI (or Kukhri) knife, actually a cross between axe, knife and sword, are very useful weapons for the modern soldier. However, it's very hard to find professional and genuine kukri knife fighting courses.
The KUKRI is the back-up weapon of the GURKHA soldier from Nepal. The Gurkhas have been famous since hundreds of years. The Gurkha soldiers are known for their speed and their willingness to fight till death under extreme conditions, perfectly suited for guerilla warfare. The British army still has Gurkha regiments; they are currently operating in Iraq and Afghanistan. The kukri knife has a long history, deriving from ancient Greek swords, and some religious significance to the Gurkhas. It is one of the few knives which let you feel the awesome power the moment you pick it up.
We recommend Extrema Ratio knives, some of the finest cutlery in the world. Extrema Ration is an official partner of BSA.
