Recent comments from attending students,
This class was beyond expectations. It was one huge step on a great journey. Best training I have ever been too.

Great instructors but honestly K.D. (Lt. Dillon) is one of the best instructors I’ve ever had the pleasure to learn from. Someone who knows the material and can back it up with relevant facts and examples is impressive.

This class is a life saver in my opinion. Lt. Dillon teaches about the physical application as well as how the brain and body function.

It was offered in the right intensity, allowing officers to correctly develop the techniques and skill.
