Knife defense workshop for groups and companies

We would like to invite companies and organized groups to full-day workshops on "Defensive use of a knife". During the workshops, we focus on the use of a knife in personal defense and broadly understood defense against a knife attack.
We organize these workshops in a closed formula (dedicated to the group ordering the workshop), or semi-open format, 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 "Defensive use of a knife" workshop, please contact the trainer directly to arrange details including the 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.
