Florida Firearms Training is excited and very proud to announce that we have been selected to “Host” world famous instructor, author and TV personality Michael Janich, Founder and Lead Instructor of Martial Blade Concepts, for a Two-Day Folding Knife Fighting and Defense Class here in Florida! Due to Mr. Janich's other commitment within the industry, he now only teaches about 12 classes a year.
