Our self defense and defensive tactics training is currently being taught to thousands of civilians, over 800 law enforcement agencies and hundreds of US military units worldwide. This unique self-defense program is designed for use in both public safety, security and military special operations contexts. This modern, reality based method of training provides solutions to a multiplicity of armed and unarmed threats. The training is characterized by a logical and progressive approach to learning that results in a highly effective, easy to learn, natural and practical method of defensive tactics for real life violent encounters.
Our program features both defensive and offensive techniques. The training deals with scenarios where, for any number of reasons, operators face life threatening situations in which higher force options cannot be immediately accessed. From this perspective, the operator must respond with sound, aggressive, unarmed defensive techniques and combatives until a transition to higher force options or safe control can be achieved.
The training enables operators to deal with the most violent offenders they encounter while remaining acutely aware of reasonable use-of-force and civil liability issues. Our program is constantly updated in consultation with use-of-force experts (including district attorneys, police liability defense lawyers, police administrators and defensive tactics instructors) to provide real world effectiveness and defensible applications of reasonable force.
Our program is well integrated, meaning that similar defensive principles apply to a variety of hostile situations. Therefore, the system can be learned in a relatively short period of instruction. The techniques are easy to retain with minimal review and can be performed under extreme stress. The system has been overwhelmingly praised by defensive tactics instructors from federal, state and local law enforcement agencies, security administrators, as well as hand-to-hand combat trainers from special units of the military.
Our instructional staff consists of currently sworn law enforcement, military, and security officers. Our approach is simple, “stop the problem and take safe control as quickly as possible.” Safety is paramount – before, during and after the confrontation. We deal with compliant, resistive, assaultive/high risk, and life threatening situations.
