March 15 – 16 2017

What the attending officers had to say!
Great course! Not just physical but the mental game!
This course should be an annual requirement.
Great videos of what happened and what could have happened with a better plan.
Great instruction, focused on the perspective of a female officer.
Course – It has given me more confidence in my ability to take someone in control or defend myself during a violent altercation.
Material was excellent and helpful. The videos were a great learning tool and the hands on was the best of all!
Being in patrol it’s only a matter of time before you go hands on and having gone hands on before its good to have different tools to be able to use.
This course and instructors went above and beyond what anticipated. Excellent and fun.
Without a doubt, all officers, male and female would benefit.
Extremely impressed, loved it!
Exceeded expectations.
Very thorough and one move lead into another. Nice and easy to put it all together.

Lt. Kevin Dillon
Amazing! He kept your attention where you want to continue taking other of his courses and classes.
The best as always. Freakin funny. An expert on this topic. Great experiences to draw  from to illustrate.

Instructor Tina Perrone
Tina is a excellent instructor and I would take any class she instructs over and over again.
Tina was very funny, knew material and is also well trained. Both eager to help and pass on their knowledge.
Tina, Awesome Instructor, very inspirational to want to continue self defense classes.
Awesome and natural instructor. Encouraging but wants to make sure you get it!

 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 gear because anything else makes no sense.
