    I just finished a weekend of training with Greg Ellifritz for his Extreme Close Quarters Gunfighting and Tactical First Aid classes. I cannot say enough good about Greg and about both classes. I highly recommend you take advantage of his knowledge and expertise. Lots of fun "war stories" of his experience as a cop and cop trainer from Greg during the classroom portions, too.

    Awesome! I've followed his blog for years and would love to take a class from him.

    You should take his knife fighting class, too. ;)

    Greg’s a great practitioner and trainer...I really enjoy his classes.

    I know this is kinda off base but is there an age requirement for taking knife fighting classes? Want to get my kids into one. 12 and 11. Just to prepare them for the future. They are already in martial arts. Unfortunately the place they goto doesn’t offer any knife fighting classes.

    It will all depend on the class. I’ve done the MBC classes with Janich and kids would probably be fine in it. I’ve also done EWO with Southnarc and it’s a full contact class that would be very difficult for younger kids to complete in full. Craig does a great job teaching to students limits so he could probably figure something out (limited evolutions maybe). I’m not sure where Ellifritz falls on the physicality spectrum, I attended a short block with him at a conference but not a full course.

    I’ll run it by my wife. My kids are on board but yeah definitely not full contact anything. Thank you everyone for the responses.
