Tempe Arizona – Weaponology

Do you work in a place that prohibits you from carrying a weapon? Do you travel to areas where guns, or even knives, are illegal? Have you ever looked around the room and thought, “what could I use to defend myself?”

Ed from Ed’s Manifesto is coming to Temple Arizona to teach his two day Weaponology class on July 8 – 9, 2017. Ed is a security specialist and combatives instructor with over 10 years’ experience in public safety along the northern border area of Mexico. He runs seminars and private training specific to anti-abduction, escapology, free hand and unconventional edged weapons work.

The cost of this 2-day course is $200. Each day will consist of 6 hours of instruction and hands-on applications of weapons in a Non-Permissive Environment (NPE).


This is a two day immersive mixed skills class that will cover specific skillsets Ed teaches to people moving in Non-Permissive Environments (NPE) where the tools are minimal and the threats are high.

Students will learn how to use and/or make weapons such as:

improvised pointed weapons
improvised edged weapons
and more.


None, but this will be a physical class. Please contact me if you have concerns about pre-existing injuries and consult your doctor before signing up.

What to Bring:

Normal street clothes
Note-taking supplies
Water / beverages
If applicable, training versions of knives or impact weapons
Eye protection (optional)
A more complete list will be sent privately to paid attendees.
