Knife Defense Instructor course

I am looking for a reputable Knife Defense Instructor course, preferably geared toward LEO. I am the departments Knife instructor and I am looking to increase my instructor knowledge past what the state academy offers. Any help or direction would be appreciated.

Our department probably wouldn't want to host a training but would be ok with sending myself and another DT instructor.

Thanks!

Kelly Worden and James Keating are also excellent options.

It only takes one, if you’re Harrison Ford pretending to be Indiana Jones... :D

I am certain that there are some discussions regarding defending against knives posted on this site. I will let you know if I find them.

No, I know some units that are using it.

I recommend checking out Ed Calderon. He will have you make a shiv, teach street techniques in non permissive (third world jail) environments. Buddy of mine took his class and made a mess out of a pig skull with a lock on a bandana with one short strike. Very instructive for LEO; let you know what you are up against and save a trip or two to the hospital or one trip to the morgue.
