In this seminar, Michael Janich presented comprehensive instruction in the fundamental skills of his Martial Blade Concepts (MBC) system and expanded on those skills to introduce progressive training methods that support higher skill development with edged and improvised weapons.
The 2015 MBC on the Beach event also featured an expanded three-day format to include Janich’s streamlined approach to stick and long-blade fighting (Sobadiwan Eskrima), unarmed combative skills, ground fighting tactics, and other instructional topics based on student interests.
Michael will be back in 2016 (Veteran's Day Weekend) for another session. If you have any questions, contact the event host and promoter:

Every so often, we would get a request for a larger than 1" diameter stick. Large practitioners that can or want to handle the heavier weights now have 2 new options to pick from, the +P at 17 ounces and the +P+ at 21 ounces.
These heavy sticks also do a good job of bridging into what you might be using for an improvised weapon. To be honest, when we first started working with them, they would wear you out. However, you get used to it and it is very satisfying to wallop a pell or bag!
Since all of our Bodyguard Escrima Sticks use the same polymer, there is no shock transmitted to the hand. These sticks can withstand any amount of punishment you can dish out.

We've been promising this for a long time. We now, finally, have sheaths for small to medium sized Training Knives!
Use them on a belt, gi, or sweats; the clip attached securly to all!
Watch the video for examples of knives that fit this sheath and the different carry options with rotation of the sheath.
TAK now stocks 4 models of Training Swords produced by the Red Dragon Armory and designed by Dave Rawlings.
These high impact polymer swords are excellent for high intensity sparring. We selected Rawlings since they are highly respected in the HEMA, WMA, SCA, and LARP communities.
These swords are manufactured in the UK at the Red Dragon facility and feature steel inserts in the blade. The insert passes through the handle and secures the pommel. They come with rubber grips that give superior tactile connection to the hand. We stock the swords with a silver blade, black guard, and brown grip for maximum realism.
For many years, we have been impressed by Nok Knives. Our training philosophy is that you should train hard and the only way to do this is to use tools that allow contact.
Our polycarbonate TAK Knives already allow several magnitudes of harder training than aluminum trainers and now the Nok Knives allow you to amp up your training even more. They posisition well between our TAK Trainers and the compressible Bogner Drill Blades.
We are stocking 14 models! Do yourself a favor a toss a few of these in your bag for when you are training as if your life depended on it!
