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 Bednarek - Training and Product Development

I am a certified  self defense and martial arts instructor from Polish Sport Academy (Polska Akademia Sportu) since 2018 and I do own a k-2 SPAS knife fighting certificate since 2016.


The subject of cold weapons, martial sports and widely understood personal safety was always at my keen interest. After childhood, during which I was lucky enough to try Karate and Judo, I trained „Modern Ju-Jitsu” under Shihan Krzysztof Dawidowicz, then traditional Ju-Jitsu (KoKoDo), fighting with weapons based on japanese, chinese and filipino martial arts, boxing, Savate (french boxing, which also included La Canne – walking stick fencing), sparring meetings that then became „Niedzielne Spotkania Sparingowe” (Sunday Sparring Meetings), SPAS (russian system designed by Konstantin Voyushin), Sport knife fighting by SPAS under Roman Minikayev.
