Blade Avoidance, Situational Awareness and the Reality of Knife Crime
We are now able to offer a workshop which deals with Blade Avoidance, Situational Awareness and the Reality of Knife Crime - this workshop is a 'hit home hard' talk to help prevent youth engagement in knife crime.
Knife Crime Prevention & Awareness Workshops
Our expert knife crime workshops cover a broad range of topics from the law on bladed articles and knife awareness to an introduction to the traumatic injuries incurred when knives are used.
The workshops also includes county lines, cuckooing, basic pre-fight indicators and what to do if you find a knife.
Taught by expert martial arts instructors who come highly vetted by the Fighting Chance Foundation, our knife crime prevention workshops form an integral part of #DitchTheBlade. Content can be tailored to individual organisations, schools or businesses requiring the workshop and it is suitable (through a tailored package) for both children and adults.
