“Get tough, get down in the gutter, win at all costs… I teach what is called ‘Gutter Fighting.’ There’s no fair play, no rules except one: kill or be killed.” – William E. Fairbairn
If you do not have a firearm handy and you need a secondary weapon (or primary where guns are not allowed), the knife is the perfect weapon to defend yourself. The Self Defense Company has a great article on “The Truth About Knife Fighting” – read it.
If you want to learn from one of the best, William E. Fairbairn is your guy. Fairbairn is considered the Father of Modern Close Quarter Battle and was known as “Dangerous Dan.” Fairbairn trained some of the most hardcore warriors in the world to include: U.S. Army Rangers, British and Canadian Commandos, OSS Spies, U.S. Marine Raiders, and the SAS.
