    engaged. This course combines standing controlling
    techniques with weapons integration to include

  • Material in previous courses are reintroduced
    emphasizing a high level of subject control and
    understanding of concepts and principles of Advanced
    Hand Fighting as well as firearms proficiency.

  • Covers weapon retention as well as integration.

Fighting inside and around vehicle

Take control of combative situations while in a
vehicle. This course covers positioning inside
vehicle with application of controlling
techniques while having the ability to

  • Learn how to dictate actions from a confined
    space in different seating positions in vehicle to
    control, attack, or escape.

  • Students will be able to control a subject as well
    as be able to escape vehicle when the time arises.

Multiple Person Take Down

Low Visibility/Undercover

  • Course based entirely around using civilian attire.

  • Controlling, utilizing of blade and firearm from

  • concealment while in controlling position, disengaging

  • with pistol integration, and egress from engagement.

  • Fighting positions from inside and around vehicle hand to

  • hand and with knife and firearm integration.

Principles of Control

  • Fighting and shooting are rarely done at the same time in trainings, yet in combat they are happening at the same time.

  • They say "life and death is in the gaps", this course fills those gaps. Teaching operators how to combine combative skills with weapon manipulation and integration with fast and accurate shooting. These skills are tested by time and in force on force scenarios. Scenarios can be done in simulation, paint marking rounds or live fire.

  • We can duplicate situations and scenarios others have previously encountered, but not the future. Therefore, this course is designed to help operators think.
