What are Urban Weapons?
Urban Weapon is a term we use to describe those items that you carry about your person on a daily basis. These items, also known as EDC (Every Day Carry) tools, can be used as force multipliers in personal protection situations if we take the time to train in their proper use. Pens, pocket knifes, keys, wallet, cellphone, glasses, water bottles are just some examples of these EDC tools.
Tell me more about A.C.W.A. Urban Weapons Training.
We believe it's important to make Urban Weapons a part of your normal combatives training. Most people do not have the luxury to carry a firearm, large blade or stick with them at all times. As such, we are forced to make due with what society DOES allow us to have on us. The A.C.W.A. has taken a very unique look at the use and application of these EDC tools and is happy to be able to offer this to our students. Eventually though training the student will realize that there is little difference between properly applied unarmed mechanics and urban tool use. This realization opens up new and amazing possiblities for discovery, investigation and personal growth.
"It's not just having a tool though that's ultimately important. It's knowing when, where and how to use it properly that makes it effective. We must always remember that we ourselves are the solution not the items that we put in our hands."
