PIPER KNIFE SYSTEM COURSE

1834 pic panel 5The Piper Knife System is a method of knife use which originated in Cape Town, South Africa, within the prisons and “numbers gangs” of South Africa. It is widely regarded and feared as one of the most difficult knife systems to defend against, and is highly deceptive, powerful, and lethal.

As part of our methodology of analyzing criminal behavior, we have adopted this system (by permission of its founder, Nigel February of Cape Town), and teach it in basic format as part of our offering. It is an ideal companion skill to handgun and combative techniques, as it can be applied to the use of improvised weapons as well.

Course Duration: 4 Hours.
Course Fee: ZAR850 / US$60 per person
