By far the best police combat system out there.

One of the best learning experiences I have ever experienced.  I truly believe I have learned a new skill to help in my profession.
Was a good informative course with a good combination of classroom and hands on time.
I will recommend my agency send as many officers as possible to take this training.
The instructor is extremely competent and knowledgeable.  He is able to relay the info in real life effective manner, applicable to the patrol officer.
Best instructor level arrest and control / defensive tactic classes I have ever attended.
(Lt. Dillon) K.D. teaches is very well, always making sure the student completely understands the purpose behind the methods.  I will definitely refer this program to others.
Training was specifically geared towards law enforcement officer and what they may face on the street.  This was among the best training I’ve had.  Excellent course!  The trainer was obviously an expert in this field.
Very good applicable program.  Instructor has obviously tested his techniques.
(Lt. Dillon) K.D. was phenomenal, I wish I knew this stuff coming out of the academy.  I wouldn’t change a saner thank you so much!  It was an honor to be taught by the best.
