I will be in the area for vacation. Background is in grappling, CCW holder and usually carry a firearm or OC but would like a basic course on knife use as a last ditch defensive tool. Also are there in other recommended basic courses in the Midwest. Thanks for any replies.

I'm not sure about locations but for good (i.e.; realistic) knife training check out Pramek and it's weapons affiliates.

There was a thread on it a few months back and a couple of the guys on here train it and would have the correct info.

MBC is worth checking out if you're looking for functional defensive knife use basics.

Kovacs had mentioned Pramek, but there are only a handful of instructors and of those I would be the closest to you which probably isn't realistic for what you need right now.

I would recommend checking out the Minnesota Kali Group (http://www.mnkali.com/) which is headed by Rick Raye. They're good people and have pretty solid knife skills. I haven't personally trained with Rick, but I do attend a few workshops a month with with MKG Detroit which was formed by a few of Rick's students. If he's as capable as they are you won't be disappointed.
