All the instructors were tentative, dedicated and engaged, which kept me engaged and helped me feel inspired.
I had trained in LOCKUP before but now after going through this course, I respected so much more.
This class exceeded my expectations.
I like the number of reps and breaking the material down step by step.
I like all the instructors, showed videos and gave examples of techniques used in real-world situations.
Techniques easy for you to learn.
I work as an SRO and I like learning about the rear sentry to the seated position.
This class was thorough and covered more information than I expected for the limited-time that was allowed.
Most practical law enforcement combat of course I’d seen.
It greatly exceeded my expectations.
Excellent program, easy to learn and professional for law enforcement use of force encounters.
From the body of work, content to instruction, overall exceeded my expectations.
