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.
