Paladin's documentation of personal security and counterterrorism expert Kelly McCann's in-your-face, combat-proven Individual Protective Measures Course continues in this third volume of the series. Drawing upon principles taught in his best-selling Combatives video series, McCann first teaches wall techniques: unarmed combative techniques designed to turn the tables on your attacker when he has you pinned against the wall with one or both hands. Next, he shows you how to deal effectively with a straight punch, perhaps the most difficult punch to defend against. From there, he goes into realistic unarmed defenses against shoulder weapons, such as rifles and shotguns.

Then, for the first time captured on video, McCann teaches his no-nonsense knife fighting program, focusing on carry methods of the tactical folding knife, rapid opening and deployment when under attack, snap-cutting to keep your opponent at bay, use of the knife when closed and unarmed defense against knife attacks. For information purposes only.
