“The training conducted by Lt.“K.D.” Dillon  will inform and motivate the student.  I cannot over emphasize the way he works on   developing the mind, body and          WARRIOR SPIRIT of the student, like no one else and nothing else that I know of. Lt. Dillon was on the board of advisors for my book, On Combat, and I have been a fan of his work for years.  He is funny, entertaining, and incredibly  informative, another Gordon Graham.  Honest.  Now he is out on the  national scene, and this is a ‘can’t miss it’ opportunity.”

Lt. Col. Dave Grossman (Ret)

“I have had the pleasure of traveling and teaching with Kevin Dillon and Geoff Anderson of L.O.C.K.U.P.®  They have given careful thought to what kind of control tactics will actually work best for the average officer.  The skills they teach are simple, focused on immediate results, effective, and are tailored to be used by officers of all sizes and skill levels.  L.O.C.K.U.P.® is more than just combat skills.  It’s also about tactics, attitudes, and challenges the officers to think in a more proactive way about protecting themselves and taking control of uncooperative suspects in a manner safest to them and the suspect.  Dillon and Anderson have great rapport with their students and their enthusiasm is reflected in the enjoyment officers show during the class.  Management and trainers can also benefit from the keen insights offered by Dillon and Anderson.”

Dr. Alexis Artwohl

“At first I had the typical “what can these guys teach me attitude.” The significance and impact of your training quickly changed my mind. The instruction stressed an overall offensive strategy that helps prevent an escalation of force. The techniques were easy to learn and retain. Since they are based on known physiological  responses, we can turn this knowledge into an advantage. It was exactly what we needed to improve our arrest and control capabilities. We have already begun to implement L.O.C.K.U.P.® in our block training.”

“I have known and respected Lt Dillon for many years as a top notch police officer. I have studied traditional martial arts, law enforcement and military fighting techniques for many years. Lt Dillon’s training is the best, most comprehensive and practical training I have received. He combines many different aspects of various fighting methods into the best hand to hand combat/defense techniques I have encountered. His training covering acceptable use of force in relation to law enforcement activities is concise and on point. His training is a must for any law enforcement or military personnel. ‘As you train, so shall you fight.’”

“I love your program and its training because I love to fight. Your program reminds me of ‘The WILL TO TRAIN to win is more important than the will to win’ .”

“As a hand to hand combat instructor with over 20 years of experience I am highly recommending any of the L.O.C.K.U.P.® courses for all Law Enforcement officers, no matter what your job. I have been involved with many different hand to hand systems within the law enforcement community and the arrest and control system taught by “K.D.” is far superior in its effectiveness and simplicity. It is easy to learn and best of all easy to apply to real life street situations officers will face. So many systems out there claim to be the best and the only one you will ever need, I can say from experience the L.O.C.K.U.P system delivers on that statement. If you are looking for one system to teach to your officers that will encompass the techniques they will need to survive and overcome the situations they will face in their daily patrols, then L.O.C.K.U.P.® is the system for you. I am proud to be a part of the Police Combat family and will continue training with KD and preaching the L.O.C.K.U.P.® system. L.O.C.K.U.P.® is all that you need.”

“Over the last number of years I have gotten to know Kevin Dillon as a quality individual, and a true professional who has committed his life to training. Kevin brings exceptional energy, high skill level and a vast knowledge of the science of combat to every training session. The quality of both the content and the delivery of Kevin’s program ensure a first rate training experience for anyone attending his class. We had the honor of having Kevin present a full day seminar at the 2011 Legacy of Excellence Conference. Everyone in attendance at Kevin’s session left with knowledge and skills that will make them more effective officers and trainers. I would highly recommend Kevin to anyone who is looking for practical training delivered in a professional manner.”
