Pressure point control

Here at A.S.C.E.N.D, our Spontaneous Knife Defense System is designed to meet the needs of those who have the potential to be confronted by a spontaneous knife or edge weapon attack. It is based upon a realistic, yet highly aggressive, check-and-stun philosophy that employs gross motor skills which are compatible with the affects of survival stress.


It reviews the fundamentals of basic knife systems; reviews the common grips, types of strokes, and lines of attack; and reviews defense strategies for both stalking assaults and spontaneous assaults inside the reactionary gap.


Recommended Audience:

  • Security guards/agents

The course has two offerings:
