Edged weapon training

Are you ignoring the risk? is a question posed by the trainer Ian Kirke, pictured, MD of training company TFS. He writes:

Assaultive risks carry the real danger of the use of edged weapons and acid. This growing phenomena has become commonplace within the capital whilst the notion of ‘county lines’ exposes many other regions. Corporate responsibility leaves no room to avoid the consequences of legal action and reputational harm should an identified threat be downplayed.

TFS, an approved National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC) Community Safety Accreditation Scheme (CSAS) provider, delivers several conflict management and physical intervention programmes for leading retailers, corporates and local government and is able to provide a bespoke solution within a relatively short time.

The key defensive behaviours engage with, amongst others, observation, avoidance, flanking, fending (body deflections), physical intervention take downs and ultimate disengagement. These intrusive actions are be governed by section 3 (1) of the Criminal Law Act 1967. The initial approaches are also applicable to minimising acid attacks.

Pragmatic operational skills that may be required in a spontaneous attack are delivered by our team providing business protection and corporate legal certainty.
