“The Shocknife is a revolutionary training aid that has escalated the operational level of Special Forces operator Combatives to a new standard. The Shocknife was integrated into the full spectrum (hand, knife, stick, and gun) of force-on-force training and has enhanced the overall force protection and survivability of the Special Forces operator by introducing induced stress in a unscripted and dynamic training environment replicating combat conditions. This has ultimately prepared the operator to perform and prevail in high stress close quarters combatives. The Shocknife has not faltered and is highly recommended to be incorporated into all professional combative programs.”

“We integrated the Shocknife’s into our Combatives training program and were very satisfied with the results. The Shocknife is a revolutionary product and it definitely adds a level of realism that cannot be replicated with traditional weapons training devlces. The only thing that I can relate it to is a weapon that fires Simunitions. The heightened level of awareness that you feel when confronted with the Shocknife is unbelievable. The most impressing thing about our training was that the soldiers were able to react to the fear invoked by the Shocknife and disarm their opponents.”

"I have over 30 years of combined training and experience in martial arts, corrections, law enforcement and military fields (USMC) and take great pride in my job. Saving lives is nothing to take lightly. Conducting realistic training to provide field proven techniques and strategies is one of my most important goals. Using the "Shocknife" allows me to show not only what works in real life and what will not work without injuring the student. This helps build proficiency, enhance officer safety, improve confidence, and ultimately results in saving their life! I would recommend ANY OFFICER or TRAINER who wants to validate their techniques in edged weapons to use the SHOCKNIFE!

"When you get in a fight, the adrenaline is so high that it can cause you to freeze up. The only way to prepare for this is to make your training as real as possible. In the edged-weapon category, there is no better way to simulate a real knife fight than by using the SHOCKNIFE."

"The Shocknife is as "reality-based" as it gets. The only way I can keep my students from touching a blade in training is by using the Shocknife. It ads an element hard to achieve in training - FEAR." The Shocknife is now standard equipment for my global system."
