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.
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!
