Counter Blade Concepts (CBC)


Real knife attacks are sudden, incredibly violent, close-range encounters, and unfortunately, much more common in this day and age.  To survive that type of threat, you need a practical, proven system of tactics you can trust.


Counter Blade Concepts is a self-defense system that focuses on empty-hand defenses against edged-weapon attacks. The goal of CBC is to significantly increase your  chances of surviving if you were attacked by someone armed with an edged weapon.

"Counter-Blade Concepts (CBC) is a true system of defensive tactics designed to maximize your chances of survival against real edged-weapon attacks.  Developed by renowned edged-weapon expert and Black Belt Hall of Fame member Michael Janich, Counter-Blade Concepts (CBC) begins with a critical analysis of actual edged-weapon attacks.  Based on a clear understanding of how those attacks happen, CBC then provides a simple, easily learned system of defenses that enable you to minimize injury to you, decisively control the attacking limb, and rapidly disable an assailant so you can escape safely. Counter-Blade Concepts teaches you how to seamlessly integrate all the skills of CBC into an unstoppable, layered system of tactics that allows you to rapidly adapt your defenses to any attack. CBC has literally saved lives and has become the counter-knife system of choice of many armed and unarmed professionals employed in the law enforcement spectrum."
