Weaponology Module - Ed Calderon of Ed's Manifesto

The Weaponology Module is an improvised edge & point curriculum adapted from methodologies found in criminal cultures from all over the world. Specifically designed for security professionals, military personnel, and civilians operating in areas and conditions not conducive to the carrying weapons, this course covers the procurement, manufacturing, concealment, and use of improvised weapons in non-permissive environments. In addition, the Weaponology Module covers movement in urban landscapes and circumventing complex security issues found in many inhospitable areas.

This unique methodology has been taught to members of federal agencies both domestic and abroad, as well as members of special forces groups and private security contractors.


This Module will also include the use of organic medium with brief discussions of various medical interventions and anatomy throughout. The medical discussions will be led by a former US Army Special Operations Medic and currently practicing anesthesia professional. We will explore the injuries induced from the point and edge work practiced in the course.
