Self–Defense/Arrest and Control Techniques

This course is designed for law enforcement officers, military personnel, security guards, and responsible citizens.  Anyone with law enforcement or security experience is aware that suspects do not want to go to jail. Although most comply with verbal commands, a significant amount do not go with the program. We train for the one moment where you might be in the fight of your life.

The techniques in this class are based on fundamental principles of self-defense that are easily applied in a stressful situation.  Some agencies or schools teach techniques that require difficult moves and multiple steps that are impossible to remember in a stressful environment. At Tactical Avenues we emphasize simple but effective techniques to overcome resistance and control the suspect/attacker.

These courses are taught by a former police officer in Los Angeles assigned to Arrest and Control Division. The instructor is an experienced former Metropolitan Division field officer with real-world applications and insights that are invaluable to officers/agents seeking expertise in the self-defense platform.

Courses can be designed to cater to you or your agency's specific needs.
