Martial Blade Concepts (MBC) is an independent program run exclusively by Andy Keyworth at Warriors of the Light Academy.  It is a modern system of personal protection that teaches the use of small (legal to carry) bladed weapons, counters to armed attack, and empty-hand defensive tactics.

The core principle of the MBC approach is to treat all students as individuals with different needs, and to help everyone understand their requirements and build their own personal protection plan. ​
