With the increase in violent crime throughout the world, this new volume in the Sudden Violence Series is extremely timely. Shot on location at Kelly McCann's Kem-'ba-tivz Civilian Training Center in Fredericksburg, Virginia, Edged Weapon: Responses to Violent Knife Attacks introduces Maury Abreu to Paladin viewers. A former U.S. Marine and corrections officer with the Federal Bureau of Prisons, and an active supervising edged-weapons instructor for various U.S. government agencies for more than a decade, Abreu shares his knowledge and passion for edged-weapon combatives to the general public for the first time in this video.

Fighting for your life is not a static, step-by-step process, but rather a dynamic, volatile collision between two (or more) committed individuals. When someone attempts to stick an edged weapon in your body, you have very little time to respond, and the techniques you employ must be simple and immediate. Elaborate, complicated moves cannot be quickly accessed in real-world confrontations.

From the foundation of edged-weapons responses, combative fundamentals, pre-assault indicators, and carry and deployment of edged weapons to offensive and aggressive knife strikes, fending, crashing, and capturing the attacking weapon, Abreu teaches you a new way of training for responding to sudden, violent edged-weapons attacks . . . a way of training that has been successfully tested by combatants around the globe. For information purposes only.
Maury Abreu is the chief instructor for Kelly McCann's Knife Kembativz curriculum. He specializes in extreme close-quarters hand-to-hand combat and knife deployment and defense.
