Defense against knife attacks - workshop
We would like to invite companies and organized groups to full-day workshops on "Defense against knife attacks". During the workshop, we focus on various scenarios and variants of defense against an attacker with a knife, as well as situational awareness, perceiving attack indicators and de-escalation techniques.
We organize these workshops in a closed formula (dedicated to the group ordering the workshop), or semi-open formula, when the group can be joined by people from outside the group, so if you would like to take part in such a workshop, but you are not a member of a larger group, contact us, and we will look for a group suitable for your needs.
If you are interested in taking part in the "Defense against the knife attacks" workshop, please contact the trainer directly in order to arrange details in this scope of the discussed material, the date and costs of the workshop.

Artur is passionate and loves what he does. He conveys his knowledge in a communicative and accessible way, not only in the subject of fighting with a knife, stick, etc., but also teaches behavior and broadly understood defense on the "street". He is pedantically prepared for each class and adjusts them to a specific person and their abilities. It combines theory with practical skills to gain an advantage in critical situations.
In addition to being an excellent teacher and a world-class sportsman (with many genuine successes), he is just a nice, sympathetic and witty guy.
I recommend with all my heart !!!!!!
It's been a long time since I've been to such a fascinating training and so well prepared in terms of content and practicality.
I feel very satisfied and want more.
Artur, you are a master of masters in the subject of a knife, and your several years of experience make you an authority in this field. Way to go.
It was a hard and busy Saturday, a large dose of theoretical and practical knowledge and exchange of experiences. Really strong group and the hosts Damian Laszuk and Artur Bednarek showed and dispelled many doubts, teaching ourselves and the people who attack us. Fortunately, the "DEFENSIVE USE OF THE KNIFE" training ended only with bruises, minor injuries and large soreness. Thanks again.
-knife fighting technique,
-fight tactics, changing and adapting them depending on the changing situation,
- legal conditions for the use of a knife in self-defense / defense necessary.
I'm over 50, I weigh over 100. Thanks to Artur's training and learning strategies and "good manners", I managed to stand on the podium three times in knife fighting competitions, including the Polish vice-championship in the Philippines, within two years. Just like in stick fighting, the championship of Poland thanks to simple tips and sticking to the strategy developed by Artur.
Artur is a great passionate of weapon fighting. It is difficult for me to imagine a person with more experience and competence to learn real, defensive knife combat (i.e. when we strive to minimize losses on both sides of the conflict). Artur approaches his self-defense trainings comprehensively - he teaches not only what to do when it comes to physical violence, but also how to behave earlier. For an inexperienced person "in street life", it completely changes the perspective. Although Arthur is one of the most calm and empathetic people I have met, he can simulate an attack without exposing the student to loss of health. Thanks to his help, I feel much more in control of potentially dangerous situations. I highly recommend Artur!
