The reverse grip is often a misunderstood method of using the blade. It is frequently referred to as the grip of the “expert knife fighter.” People who have very little knowledge of the knife make statements like that.

The reverse grip has its strengths and weaknesses. It’s important to know both because the reverse grip is an important part of the overall toolbox of those who study the blade. Module 4 of the Patriot Knife Fighting System focuses on Reverse grip knife.

In this course the student will learn the Apache Method, drills from the Filipino martial arts, and techniques from the Raven Method of Fernan Vargas.

The course is part of the full Patriot Knife Fighting certification system, taught by martial arts instructor Tom Howanic. This is Module #4, but there are no pre-requisites to take this course.
