The Results Are In: Recent Research Shows In 80% of Edged Weapon Attacks the Weapon is Hidden Until the Last Possible Moment

High Priority Skill Sets

Now that you have what you need if the fight goes to the ground, you’re definitely going to want to have a high priority skill set to defend against one of the most common and most lethal types of aggravated assault.

Unfortunately most concealed carriers believe that simply carrying a concealed handgun is enough to defend against a psychopath with an edged weapon.  

Case reports show that in 80% of cases analyzed, the knife is hidden until the last possible moment and the ambush is rapid, vicious and executed with lethal intent.

Case reports also suggest that it commonly requires multiple well placed rounds to stop a determined attacker with an edged weapon, even if the victim has the luxury of the attack starting outside of the range of the edged weapon so…

Having the ability to combine combatives skills with handgun skills at the level of unconscious reflex in response to edged weapon attacks and threats can literally mean the difference between life and death.

Unfortunately, most grapplers who carry concealed falsely believe they will intuitively know what to do if they find themselves faced with various types of edged weapon attacks and threats.

This could be a fatal mistake.

Another Warning:

Remember, the strategies revealed in this course are for those who are willing to look at grappling through a new lens. 

This is not traditional sport grappling. 

Again, while we are borrowing from sport grappling, the motivations for this course are specifically designed for the purposes of keeping viewers safe from harm and out of jail in a real-world self-defense situation while carrying a concealed handgun. 

A Life-Saving Game Changer

Carrying a handgun changes the training and performance context and (as you know) context dictates strategy so…

The habits and pathways that are formed during sport training, practice and competition can create training scars leaving grapplers vulnerable.  These are known as Slips and Capture Errors.

Slips and Capture Errors

There are many documented cases where concealed carriers, police officers, security personnel and grapplers have made catastrophic tactical errors in a weapons-based environment because under stress they defaulted to training that wasn’t specific to carrying a handgun.  This is known as Slips as Capture Errors.

By now you understand that we’ve spent over a decade researching and developing these unique disciplines specifically for Concealed Carry.

IDS Clinch Fighting for Concealed Carry is the perfect companion course to IDS Grappling for Concealed Carry.

Greg Nelson Headshot


Studying, Training and Teaching Combatives, Combat Sports, Self-Defense, Fighting and dealing with all facets of Martial Arts has been my focus for the last 38 years. Over the past couple of years, I have started firearms training with Todd. His open-mindedness and willingness to instruct a civilian based, no nonsense and ever-expanding curriculum and methodology of all facets of personal protection is not only highly functional, pressure tested and fact based, but also super fun. The training that Todd has had me do has expanded my awareness of far more than the firearm, but also in all areas of my martial arts training. It forces me to open my mind, to look at self-defense and how to deal with the before, during and after of everything fighting in a totally different and realistic way.

Everyone loves to write “the mind is the weapon and the firearm is only the tool”, but then when they go to the shooting range evidently they forget about it and train only the finger and not the mind. This happens because it is easier to train the finger and does not require having to deal with one’s conscience in terms of ability and preparation.

I want to greet you by mentioning two concepts that I find fantastic and that come from two other Trainers of which I have a deep esteem:

“Thinkers before shooters” – Travis Haley

“Don’t be a Gunfighter be a Fighter with a Gun” – Todd Fossey

– Instructor Zero
