Ryan Hoover has implemented a new training program: Edge Reality. Hoover, a self-defense SME and co-founder of Fit To Fight, has trained military and LE personnel from several countries — as well as numerous civilians, professional athletes, and actors too. The new program is intended to instruct basic, effective counter-blade tactics that can be successfully employed under stress.

“The mentality of someone that is going to use a knife is very different than the mentality of someone than somebody that is willing to punch you or even shoot you. The mindset of [that kind of] attacker is, I’m willing to take a piece of steel and get bloody. And feel the life leave somebody.” Ryan Hoover

The program will instruct students to:

Understand the true dangers of knife violence
Recognize and pre-empt potential confrontation
• Enhance problem-solving skills with a principle-based approach
Develop technical proficiency
Marry proven concepts from combat sports with self-defense sensibilities

Says Hoover,

“Knives are the second most commonly used weapon in homicides in the United States. According to the UN, almost half of all homicides in Europe involve a knife, and men in Asia are as likely to die from a knife as from a firearm.”

Makes sense to learn some sort of blade defense on any of those continents, then…maybe the others too!
