AMOK! Training

    Important considerations in learning knife defense skills:

    There are "experts" that say nearly all knife attacks begin as a one-sided assault; we believe that to be very accurate. As a result of this fact, they conclude there is no point in studying and learning knife-to-knife skills; we believe this to be a very in-accurate point of view.

    This is why AMOK! places a strong premium on developing skills to access your weapon while under attack. We have trained dozens of individuals who were attacked, who were able to access their weapon and turn the one-sided assault into a knife-to-knife encounter in which they prevailed every time.

    Here's an AMOK! adage: " The chance of a knife-to-knife encounter is directly proportional to your accessing skill."

    When you are empty-handed, the most effective actions used to deal with changing chaos and counter-strike an attacker are the very same blade-based actions used in knife-to-knife encounters with the exception being your hand is not armed. Consequently, we do not have to learn a completely different set of techniques and skill sets. And this holds true not just for empty-hands but also for all hand-held weapons.
