[02/14/19]   We at Cutting Edge Combatives, LLC (and previously Cutting Edge Instructing and Consulting, LLC) want to thank all of you for your tremendous support over the past several years (since 2008 altogether).

We are signing off, but enjoyed every minute of this adventure. Farewell friends!!! with Pedro Bonano, Adrian Rubio, and Nicholas Card

After a run of 7+ years, we are leaving the Horn Family YMCA, and we're also moving out of Mountainside. We appreciate the time we've had at both locations and the people we've met there over the years. But as with any location that focuses on services outside of what we offer, we find ourselves limited by their schedule and needs and policies rather than being able to mold our classes and schedule around what best meets the needs and wants of our students and instructors.

Our last class at the Y is Monday October, 24th. That night we'll meet at the Y briefly to pack up the remaining gear.

And our last class at Mountainside is Tuesday, November 1st. A little different this time, as we'll meet briefly at the church, pack up our stuff and...


We're moving downtown (1107 4th St NW -- the corner of 4th and Mountain) to a location operated by our friends at Duke City Krav Maga.

This mean we'll be able to offer you Krav and Sanuces Ryu classes on Tuesday and Thursday nights (subject to the plan you sign up for); better protect our equipment; offer weekend seminar classes; and offer a location that feels more like a home for us and less like we're couch-surfing.

It does mean our prices will change -- sorry about that -- but we think it's the kind of environment that's worth it.


Only a little bit. But rather than Cutting Edge Instructing and Consulting, we'll be operating as Cutting Edge Combatives. As a result, we're also working on updating the logo and the website (no one has to update their bookmarks either as we're keeping the same URL).

You'll be able to find information about the pricing and package options on our website soon.


Maybe. We're experimenting with some better payment options for the students that we hope will lessen the burden on you and on us. But it's still in the Alpha stage. We'll keep you posted!

Lots of exciting stuff going on.

A Hit Man Came to Kill Susan Kuhnhausen. She Survived. He Didn’t.

"I didn't choose his death," she says. "I chose my life."

You have to choose to and then fight to live. That's your actual choice. As on of our instructors, Pedro states it, it is the attacker who chooses his demise. Ten years ago next month Susan was attacked inside her home, by a man she later learned had been hired to kill her. By her husband. Her story of survival remains one of the more shocking and violent tales in the annals of Portland crime—and one of the most heroic.
