TACTICAL EDGE ON WEDNESDAY
The guys looked at some combatives at the beginning of the class and then in light of the upcoming seminar with Mark Davies we covered some of knife threat positions and looked at the returning blades side of the curriculum. I said that the last time Mark was down here teaching in Edinburgh he was talking about the legal side of self defence and that if you were lucky enough to disarm an attacker armed with a knife then that threat has ended and you have to be mindful of the level of force that you use. I don't know whether Mark would like to leave a comment on this but hopefully he will. Remember, you can be charged by the police and still successfully argue and win in a court. However, who wants to go down that route, so the lesson is keep in mind the use of force.
