This two day course is designed  to address violent encounters dealing with suspects of larger stature. When attempting control larger suspects, size and strength differentials  necessitate combat strategies less reliant on pure upper body strength. The concepts and techniques can be utilized by any officer addressing a larger suspect. The days are hands-on and mentally challenging. Officers train and drill wearing vest, gun belt and long pants because anything else makes no sense.

Best training I have attended. All instructors were knowledgeable, confident and approachable. I cannot say enough about how great it was. Would love another classroom and mat day. I understand it might be difficult to engage some for 3 days – but it would be worth it!! Amazing!
Love the multiple examples to explain things. Liked best, Rear Sentry take-downs.
Toni was great. She was able to explain the moves clearly and in ways I can remember.

Course hosted in MN March 14 – 15, 2018
