We provide weapon defence training for our door supervisors to ensure that they can deal with incidents safely and keep up to date with the latest techniques.
This week, MAST’s first course was run in Milton Keynes by Ricky Thomas a Krav Maga and CQB instructor. The course covered highly effective and practical techniques, ranging from footwork drills, striking and response. There was also a physical skills element to the course which explained edged weapon defence techniques and tactics.
MAST will be providing these courses for all our teams around the country.
