Combatives for Law Enforcement

This class is geared toward those in law enforcement. This specialized program is unlike other martial arts systems because there is no ranking structure, such as belts or stripes to show progress. We will help you to develop your skills and confidence level that you need during a violent attack, struggle or handcuffing a suspect.

Students in the class will learn basic fighting strategies and techniques used to

  1. Neutralize the immediate threat of an aggressive subject
  2. Retain control of their weapon during a fight or while making an arrest
  3. Achieve a position of advantage so that they can utilize the appropriate force option
