Advanced Knife Defense Training for Tanto and Other Blades

Need help finding advanced knife defense training and other self defense weapons?

We recommend working on Tanto practice and other blades, single and double edged. Mix it up by learning the Kihon Happo with an added knife training flow drill like the video below. And check out other training tactics and gear to use for safe martial arts training using short blades. Never use real tanto or other blades to practice your advanced knife defense training! Refer to some of the wooden and rubber training tools seen below, or make your own safe, similated blades to use during all training by yourself or with other martial art students!

Train at your own risk! Never used real, sharpened blades during practice sessions. Make your own wooden training blades or purchase realistic rubber and wood training knives, tanto and other simulated weapons when practicing alone or with other martial art students. Do not rely on the training techniques or blades shown for actual self defense, as these are recommendations by trained professionals that are presented for advanced educational and entertainment purposes only.
