About Us


We offer modern combatives training:

  • Physical, unarmed self defense such as striking & grappling.  
  • Knife, stick, firearms and other weapons use and defenses.
  • Tactical soft skills: awareness, avoidance, deescalation, disengagement & disruption skills.
  • Legal considerations to self defense and use of weapons.  Self defense may end in the courtroom - be informed on the judicious use of practiced skills; legally articulate & defend your decisions!
  • Manage fear and the physiological effects of critical incident stress.


Combatives / personal defensive tactics are raw,  aggressive techniques for dealing with interpersonal violence in an  immediate, effective manner.  The techniques are simple, efficient, easy  to learn and retain under stress.

Martial Blade Concepts (MBC) is an edged-weapon system specifically designed  to meet the needs of today's concerned citizen and armed professional.  Based on Michael Janich's extensive analysis of the Filipino martial arts and many other systems,  MBC takes combat-proven tactics and adapts them to modern tools,  threats, and legal concerns. The result is a practical, easy-to-learn  system that is ideally suited to modern self-defense.
