The objectives of this course are:
- To first teach you skills on how to avoid trouble altogether.
- If that fails, how to avoid getting into a physical confrontation, if at all possible.
- Thirdly to enable you to be better equipped to protect yourselves physically, in the case you did not succeed in avoiding the physical confrontation.
This course teaches real life application, not sport combat application. We believe, if your training is not relevant to dealing with real life confrontations, the time you spent in training is wasted. What we feel is unique about this course, is the fact that everything that is taught, has stood the test of real life. We made a point of not including anything, that has not been tested, and proven effective in real life altercations. We had the privilege to draw from years of practical experience of tactical operators, from their different fields of operation. These fields include: Executive Protection (bodyguarding), SA Police Special Task Force, SA Army, SA Police, Nightclub and Entertainment Venue protection, Special Event protection, Protection Dog application, Crowd Control, Private Security as well as Training and Instructing in different Sport Combat arts. Anything that was trained and then tested, that did not work under stress, in real life, was disregarded. As far as physical resistance is concerned, we concentrate on the weapons you can conceal and carry with you, as well as how to use improvised weapons, and everyday items. These weapons include the handgun, knife and improvised weapons, pepper spray, stick and unarmed combat. We also deal with everyday household items that would most probably be around and available to you, to defend ourselves with, at the time of the attack taking place. After this course, you will never be unarmed again. In the handgun application course we concentrate on the radius of 7m – 0m. This is the area where, according to statistics, 90% of armed attacks take place. We teach close quarter, tactical handgun application, not target shooting.
