DEVELOPMENT During the last ten years, the field of corrections has been experiencing staggering increases of edged weapon assaults on inmates and officers. Additionally, the visibility and the use of edged weapons has slowly begun to increase for the filed or patrol officer. Although the edged weapon has always been a culture weapon of Hispanics or Latins, covert edged weapons has now become the weapon of choice among biker gangs and right wing extremists. Ironically, the interest in the Filipino knife art has become the new trend in martial arts training. Due to the simplicity and effectiveness of these arts, police and correctional officers are now facing another lethal, but discrete weapon. In response, PPCT Management Systems, Inc. has spent three years researching Filipino Knife Systems for an effective knife defense system. In August 1988, PPCT Management Systems introduced the PPCT Spontaneous Knife Defense System, which was an immediate success. This seminar examines knife assaults, knife tactics, and considerations unlike any other knife defense system available. The PPCT Spontaneous Knife Defense System is a common sense system. PPCT recognizes that a trained and probably untrained knife attacker will cut and officer if determined. This system is designed to minimize the lethal implications of an attack. Furthermore, it is the PPCT philosophy that any type of knife assault is a deadly force encounter, and should be responded to accordingly. The PPCT Spontaneous Knife Defense System is designed for correctional officers who do not have deadly force option, or for patrol officers who must react to an unexpected or spontaneous knife assault.

TRAINING WILL INCLUDE

Justifiable Use of Force: In recent years several survival training organizations have advocated utilizing deadly force within a specific range of a knife yielding assailant. This section examines the real world aspects of distance, reaction time, and Garner decision. Limitations of Reaction Time: Reaction Time is a physiological law that can be reduced dramatically if officers understand deadly force cues or furtive movements. This unit will examine predictable cues that are associated with knife assaults of the trained or untrained attacker. Analysis of Filipino Knife System: This unit reviews a brief overview of the Filipino Knife Systems, and the basic concepts of attacking angles with the hand, stick, or knife. Knife Stances: In some instances, the method or technique or an attack can be predicted by the stance of the attacker. An in-depth examination of techniques in relation to stance and reaction time will be evaluated. Analysis of Knife Cuts: This unit will examine the difference between types of knife strokes, ie., slashes, flicks, tears, and thrusts. This section will identify how some strokes are designed as distractions, limb disabling or lethal cuts. Cutting Targets: The effectiveness of a knife assault is obviously determined by the target of the cute or thrust. To better understand how a knife assailant can disable an officer, the participants will be exposed to basic anatomy of cutting structures and how each type of knife stroke has a specific purpose. PPCT Knife Defense Methodology: The PPCT Spontaneous Knife Defense System is base upon the block, stun and ground. The system is designed around the four most common angles of oblong cuts and three angles of thrusting. This unit also examines appendage stuns and subject stuns for closequarter or cell situations.
