The drills and tactics taught in all our courses have been developed over the last two decades. During that period, critical modifications have been made through 'personal' consultation with many of world's top DT instructors in both the law enforcement and military communities. The result of this intense study is the ongoing development of a professionals combative toolbox, in other words, our systems are not a martial art forms, but highly researched Combatives systems that address one reality: operators are only injured during serious resistance. Emphasis is on hostile no-shoot, no-time-to-shoot and no-room-to-shoot theory, as well as the critically acclaimed 'Emotional Climatization' drill.
