Two weeks after I got your course and had been practicing it, I got jumped by an inmate during a cell search, and he had a shank. I used your sleeve defense and it worked perfectly! Also I loved the way you presented the statistics. statistically what to practice for literally made me faster, he attacked exactly the way I trained for, in other words he first shoved and then grabbed my shirt with his left hand and came in low on the right with the shank. your defense worked perfectly and I walked without a scratch I now teach my guys that technique and I'm pushing all of them to buy your stuff. you sent me home safe bro and I appreciate it!!!

Pure Gold

Hi Trav,

I just wanted to fire off a quick email and say how glad I am I invested in your Knife course material. It is a rare thing to find a teacher who simply wants to share good quality material with the only intent being to develop the student. So far I am reviewing the Knife Mastery and the Head Movement course and the material is pure gold!

Thank you,

Harry

Really Shines

This course is great man. When I tested it, I was able to avoid anything fatal and counter with the few lessons I’ve seen. Knife defense is ugly but I like your approach, as usual. This course really shines when you mix it with other courses though. The striking course and leg lock course makes me feel totally confident in my skill to punch someone’s lights out and keep them down. All we need now is an actual arm locks course 😉

Freakin' Cool

Hey Trav,
Great program, I love it. Your perspective is real world and includes everything: striking, throwing, positioning etc. Coming from a traditional Jiu Jitsu system, it looks and feels very traditional which is why I love it. You bring traditional combative martial arts principles and tactics into the modern world, which is freakin cool.
Thanks again, and it helps that your entertaining. Now off to teach and throw some youngsters around in my kids classes. Thanks for doing this, I think it's awesome.

Revolutionary

This course revolutionizes Knife Defense. It basically clears out all the crap you see on the internet and teaches you stuff that works in many situations.

Enamored

Hey, Trav! I have a couple of things I wanted to ask you about, but first things first: I am enamored with this Knife Defense course so far even being only a few videos in. I can't wait to dive into the rest of this as time allows.

Love the Material

I made it through the course for the first time to familiarize myself with the material. Now I am ready to start partner training. I love the material, great job as always.

Amazing Stuff

Hi Trav,

I am working my way through your Knife Defense course and there's so much sense to what I’ve seen so far, even though I have no striking experience. I’m only a 4 stripe blue belt in jitz, but I like to think it gives me some slightly honed bull detection abilities.

The lesson plan and the collecting of skills is definitely what keeps me interested in training jitz. I applied your hand check/jab (from the down thrust knife position) to jitz sparring in the gi and I’ve been nailing their sleeve straight into an arm drag or a trip! Results there 🙂

Ignoring my waffle, love the vids, editing, humor etc. and the fact that you obviously love teaching, it comes across all the better in the content. Amazing stuff, can’t wait to start drilling

All the best to you mate,

Drew

Important

Hey Trav,

I’ve practiced self defense for about three years and the dojo I attend has quite a focus on knife defense. However, after having completed your course on Knife Defense I honestly can state that now for the first time I understand what is important in a dynamic knife defense situation. You provide a great concept that is simple, easy-to-understand, easy-to-practice, and effective. For sure it was not the last time I will go through your course.

I have been a fan of fight smart since I completed your Head Movement program. And I liked the Knife Defense course so much I finally ordered some fight smart t-shirts. I was hesitating because the shipping cost to Germany would cause a major hole in my retirement plan. Great course! Thank you! I hope you will sell a lot of stuff and get obscenely rich!

Have a good time!

The Missing Piece

Hey, I gotta tell ya, I’m not a fighter but I’ve studied martial arts since I was a kid (I’m 52 now). My black belt, and most of my time, has been studying Ed Parker’s American Kenpo. I love it and have felt it is the most practical MA I’ve studied.  The instructor at our particular school remains traditional requiring extensive Kenpo knowledge for black belt testing as well as a Jiu Jitsu requirement and some Kung fu for completeness.  However, even with that and sparing, I’ve always felt there was something missing. 

YOU’VE PROVIDED THE COMPLETENESS! THE KEY! THE MISSING PIECE! YOU ARE THE MISSING LINK! The combination of your real life experience, with essentially scientific testing, in full speed attacks is absolutely brilliant! It seems like such an obvious concept yet you were the first to do it!  I have simplified my Kenpo techniques for my son and added your stuff! 

Excellent job and thanks!

Thank You

I viewed the entire Knife program and I’m glad I did. Your research into the best and simplest moves and techniques are worth viewing and practicing time and time again. I'm so glad I purchased the Knife video and now I'm finally able to start viewing Fighting Bigger People. Unfortunately; I'm not a young buck anymore and turning 54 this month I'm now getting arthritis in the knees. These techniques are great for my limited mobility (No deep squatting or lunging).

I also want to say your humor makes these video enjoyable to watch along with attached real-life situation videos that explain in detail how to avoid being slashed or stabbed. Every Martial Artist, regardless of their system, needs to incorporate these videos into their arsenal. They are simple and tested for all to see.

Thank you so much for your time and effort in putting these together.

Shines

As a Martial Artist and self defense enthusiast I have been looking for a realistic knife defense guide for a long time. I have seen many teachers of Krav Maga, Kali and others teaching knife defense. I am not going to say they didn’t work although they didn’t work for me well. I am a guy who believes in sparring (slow & hard). For me if I can’t use a technique in sparring, then I can’t use it in a fight. Here Trav’s “Knife Defense Mastery Program” Shines. He teaches “Non Committal” defense against knife attacks in this course so that you can react to their tricks and fakes, which is much more realistic for a knife attack. The “Full Committal” defense that the others teach always got me stabbed in sparring sessions because if they’re tricking or faking, your defense is all in at that point and they’ve got you.
I wanna give Trav a “HUUUGGE Thanks” for taking time to think about this course and produce it. This course is the most realistic course for knife defense I have ever seen.

Absolutely Stellar

I just finished the Knife Self Defense course and I have to say that you really outdid yourself this time. This course was absolutely stellar! It’s very clear and easy to see that lots of work and effort was put into it. I absolutely loved how you left no stone unturned in the Knife Defense game.

I like how the course is set up with 4 parts covering each subject and using American football techniques in order to have a functional advantage was very clever. Overall it was a lot of fun to watch and learn. It really did live up to the hype and then some.

The conclusions you put are always heartwarming and I always look forward to them. I feel much safer against a knife attack now than before as long as I keep practicing everything I learned. These videos completely shift the conversation about knife defense to a completely new angle, the same way you did with multiple attackers. Instead of saying it can’t be done, now we are saying it can and here’s the proof.

Well done, Trav!

Super Detailed

So far I think it is great. I expected just a few videos, but was very happy to see that the whole course is already laid out and the videos are super detailed. One was like 30 min long! I have recently started training with the BJJ and Judo with the gi, so the lessons on isolating the knife I thought were very effective and easy to learn. I also feel like combining this with your footwork lessons and adding in the FMA lessons for situational awareness are also a great help. Overall I’m still trying to take everything in and get in as many reps as possible, but so far I love the program. Well worth the money!

Excellent Stuff

You have made me a crazy person, I have ordered my first ever rubber knife. I have someone to practice with gently. 

I am very excited, I wish I had someone to throw and wrestle, but no takers so far. I want to try some of the take downs. 

It’s excellent stuff. It’s the most friendly, kind spirited training to kick the snot out of attackers ever.

Thanks Trav

Kathleen

Nothing Like It!

From what I’ve seen of the Knife Defense course, there is nothing like it! I mean it! Usually self defense systems and techniques (especially weapon defense) are very unrealistic and very dangerous for the defender.

 I really like how you took the MMA formula and applied it to knife defense. 

The course is very good, high quality and down to earth. Even now I feel safer if I am to get attacked with a knife hahaha. I really appreciate the material you put out man, keep up the good work!

Better Than Anything

Trav,

I love the Knife Self Defense program so far. I have trained in Krav Maga. They they teach to block and strike at the same time, but that’s where the similarities end. Some of the knife defense lessons that I learned from Krav Maga did not make me feel comfortable. If I was ever in a situation where a person is attacking me with a knife, I would pick your training to save my life.

I have purchased many of your programs because they make sense. Thank you for creating this program. On hand to hand fighting and defense your lessons are much better than anything I’ve tried before. I know that de-escalation is the goal, and for the last 18 years it has worked for me. If I do need to fight and defend myself or my family I know that I can fight smart.

Thank you!

Jay

Krav Maga Practitioner

Thanks

I'm really enjoying your course. I've done competitive fencing; mostly epee (no right of way rules just poking the whole body), and saber (the  poking-slashing weapon).  Sure, fencing is a sport and as such lacks the realism of a true free-for-all fight, but the distancing and the feints and the parries are all there.

Thanks for putting all of this amazing information.

Top Quality

So far I love the course, I just need to convince someone to join me in training this. I still have a lot of content to crunch thru, but I’m sure it’s on point as usual.

Also kudos for continually delivering top quality content in your videos, I genuinely appreciate the effort. From the business side of things I enjoy seeing the attention to detail in the content that matters.

The Knife Defense Mastery Course

The Ultimate Training and Strategy For Edged Weapon Defense.

Here are some kind words that I've received

(from folks who have been through the training)

From the Military

Trav,

Your knife fighting instruction is brilliant as it is practical. I love it. In the army we have a acronym called K.I.S.S or 'keep it simple stupid'. The fewer moves the better in a knife fight. As my grandfather used to say, "the first guy to die loses".

You should get a military contract for this, or put in for one as we don't practice this form of combat in hand to hand.

Hey Trav I just wanted to thank you.

I'm a correctional officer that works at a super-max for the criminally insane. I'm a team leader of four guys and basically all we do is fight. these guys are adjudicated insane, so even though they're convicts they're treated as patients we# have no pepper spray no handcuffs no batons and they just let them wander around loose on the compound and basically do whatever they want, and they attack each other and staff all day long. Your knife video completely reset my thinking about knife defense, or at least everything I thought I knew.

Two weeks after I got your course and had been practicing it, I got jumped by an inmate during a cell search, and he had a nasty shank. (read more)

Excellent

Hi Trav,

I just wanted to offer feedback on your knife defense mastery course. It's excellent. As usual your courses are based on reality and practical application.

I must admit from what I have seen so far I will be changing how I teach knife defense going forward and it has opened my eyes to the potential brutal consequences of ineffective techniques taught by well intentioned instructors, inside laboratory conditions, who in reality are not equipping their students for a real life confrontation.

Kindest regards,

It's Excellent

Hey Trav,

Hopefully you have opened people's eyes as to how the other martial arts moves and catches don't work. I don't think there has been anybody else who is doing what your doing and for that I salute you, well done. What motivated you to do all of this testing, and put this together? It's excellent.

Once again keep up the great work.

Amazed

Hey Trav,

I’m really amazed by this knife defense course so far. I actually quit training in a traditional knife fighting martial art a few years ago when I realized that none of the stuff worked if the other guy didn’t play along, but my sparring partners and I practiced some of your techniques and they actually worked, even when the other guy really didn’t want them to work.

Good stuff man! I'm really impressed."

David Whitacre

Totally Impressed

Hey, Trav. 

Just purchased your Knife Defense course. 

Totally impressed by your (scientific) approach to determining what REALLY works from what doesn't. You, sir, are a national treasure. 

Thanks for all your hard work and for sharing your knowledge and skills. Well worth the investment.

Awesome Old Guy

Amazing Work

Hi Trav!

Just wanted to drop a line or two to say thank you: the course is amazing and you guys did a huge job. I especially like the way you approached the problem with a lot of empirical testing.

I’m a total newbie in martial arts but very committed in order to get the basics right enough to defend my family and don’t get murdered in case of need.

For non-experienced people like me, these courses are just great! Same holds true for the head movement program, which I completed last year (dude, I lost 17 Kg and got finally battle ready during the last 12 months and you were a very relevant part of this, I cannot say thank you enough!)

Take care and keep up with the amazing work!

Cheers,

Hey,

I've trained Krav Maga with a very highly ranked guy out of the LA Krav Maga Alliance (which is a zombie cult) The reason I bring this up is I asked specifically about a 'Sewing Machine' Defense and none exists in Krav. I then asked an Israeli IDF Krav Maga guy the same question and he elliptically referred to the Military versus Civilian Krav, and basically said we teach that you WILL be cut, no matter what, blah blah blah.

I'm just getting into the course and it's way superior to ANYTHING I've seen. Hopefully, others pick up on what you've been doing, and you get the credit that you deserve for what you've accomplished.

Keep 'em coming, if you want some kind of endorsement someplace, let me know where it needs to go."

Cheers,

The BEST

This is hands down the BEST freaking knife course I have ever watched. I actually understand what is happening and what to expect. It’s like when I sat through all four hours of Kenneth Branagh’s full unabridged production of Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Long yes, but it moved really fast because I understood what the hell was happening. Nothing important is left out.

(Note: I have watched a lot of knife fighting lessons on Funker Tactical with Doug Marcaida. Those left me feeling mystified. Your course leaves me feeling like, Yes! I can do this.)

Now I am excited to practice what you have taught. Well worth the purchase.
