Edged Weapon and Knife Awareness Defence Webinar Part 1 (diary entry)

webinar trilogy knife awareness defence21.03.21

The first part of my edged weapon and knife defence webinar looked covered:

Edged Weapon Definitions

The Nature of Knife Crime

Knife Crime Statistics

Knife Crime Motivations

The Law in Relation in Knife Crime

The Law in Reltation to Self-Defence

Leigh Simms, a practising solicitor and the author of “UK Self-Defence Law”, was a guest teacher on this course. I asked him to deliver a short lecture on the definition of “proportionate” force in self-defence as well as specifics regarding the carrying of knives. This prompted a lengthy and lively discussion in our questions and answers section.
