2-Day Course – This course teaches officers proven skills for overcoming size and/or strength differences through the use of simple, easy to learn techniques.

Our training methodology is time tested and specifically tailored for female or smaller statured officers. Officers of all sizes, regardless of their existing skill-set, will learn how to use fundamental elements such as leverage, body position, and timing to gain control of resistant and assaultive suspects.

Course objectives include but are not limited to:

  • Enhance subject compliance with the use of verbal de-escalation and soft-empty hand techniques
  • Appropriately react to an assaultive subject at close quarters
  • Develop skills in handcuffing and controlling resistant subjects
  • Perform multiple-officer and single-officer takedowns on resistant subjects

The foundation of this course is built on empty-hand control techniques while integrating a holistic approach to the use of all force options. The principles taught in this course are not only easy to learn and effective, but also compliment tactics officers may already be using.

An attack cannot always be avoided, so don’t rely solely on situational awareness or unrealistic technique to stay safe on the streets.

“One of the best trainings I have been to.  Everything was taught at a level that could be understood.  What I liked most was how it applies to real life, knowing as a smaller female that these tactics work.”

-Haley Larson, Blaine Police Department

“The instructors for this course were very dynamic, adaptive, and open to learning as much as they were to teaching.  Made class a collaborative effort.  Really felt like we were all on the same team.”

-Stephanie Wallace, Minnetonka Police Department

“The instructors were very knowledgeable and knew how to explain things clearly.  It was less intimidating with all females.  Also learned things I can use as a smaller female.”

“This was my first training outside of my PD and my standards are now pretty high!  What I liked most was learning the different techniques and building off of them.  I will be attending more!”

-Lauren Roll, Crystal Police Department

“This is hands down the best DT/empty hand/close-quarters training I have ever been to.  Techniques were simple to learn and are real-life applicable both on and off duty.  What I liked most was the rear sitting takedown!”

“They slowed things down and went step by step which was very helpful in remembering how to do it correctly.  They were respectful and supportive.  What I liked most was the amount of different moves that were shown and how they played into and rolled right into another move.”

-Sarah Hubacher, Dundas Police Department

“Best instructors ever.  I liked that all the moves didn’t require you to be bigger and strong than your suspect.”

-Sydney Dison, Mounds View Police Department
