The RAY FLORO UNDERHAND KNIFE METHOD is probably the fastest and easiest to learn of all the knife systems I teach.
Its unique approach of holding the blade in a forehand / EDGE UP grip facilitates angles of attacks that are difficult to defend. It also maximises your reach advantage.
In close quarters, it provides a rapid attack pattern that is devastating.
The underhand method stands on its own but is also a fantastic system to use in conjunction with double knife, stick and dagger or sword and dagger techniques.
Raymond developed Floro Fighting Systems (FFS) - a realistic, simplified method of dealing with armed and unarmed confrontations and specialising in the awareness and defence of edged weapon assaults.
By discussing and formulating formal training programs and teaching guidelines, FFS has now been adopted by military personnel and law enforcement worldwide. Several Law Enforcement and “SWAT” personnel have also chosen to use the principles in their training academy.
Regular clients receive private lessons, their professions ranging from – Office Workers, Security Personnel, Air Marshalls, Commercial Pilots, Business Owners, Military Instructors and personnel, other Martial Arts Instructors.
Raymond was also the “Training Leader” for the US based “Guardian Angels” Safety Patrol. Raymond formulated and taught a training regime suitable for recruits to use in the submission and arrest of offenders in the enclosed spaces of trains. He also led patrols throughout the subway network and “streets”.
Floro Fighting Systems is a system of Edged Weapon combat and defence that is not only simple to learn, but is one of the most effective systems of self defence available today. Efficient, direct and immediate, FFS is one of the very few styles that is still based on the blade, and is used by civilians and members of the military, and law enforcement agencies worldwide.
