Northern Red.
Description.
An introduction and familiarization with blades, sticks and impact weapons, Power Striking and Edged Weapons details the combat mindset needed to defeat a foe in hand-to-hand fighting and then applies that to blade tactics. From the opening strike to the actual employment of a blade, stick or baton, the class focuses on proven fighting methodologies that work in both street fight and combat settings. It is ideal for military and Law Enforcement looking for a real solution to immediate threats.

End State.
After two days of hand-to-hand practice, students will understand the use of power striking to create opportunities in which to draw a blade safely and then effectively "grab and stab" a threat, without injuring themselves. As with every Northern Red class, students also leave with tools for identifying their short comings and overcoming them with a template utilized by the majority of the United States Special Operations community.
