Covert Improvised Defensive Tactics

We designed this course from our experiences as in-flight deportation officers post 9/11.

With LE becoming increasingly aware of civilian defensive implements such as the Kubaton, we needed to firstly find an alternative that was 100 percent legal to carry in all environments. So was born our Covert Improvised Defensive Tactics.

Secondary was finding a way to increase the effectiveness of the implement as a defensive tactic and tool.

The system we have developed meets both criteria. It is just as much about the tactics of the implement itself as it is the psychology behind it.

Used correctly the psychological trauma can be MORE effective than the actual physical damage being done. The natural defensive instincts of the attacker are immediately accessed and as such they back down into less aggressive postures for easy dis-engagement or control.​

Commonality of technique will allow the user to achieve the desired result with many different common implements in an emergency situation. Key, pen, magazine etc all become defensive tools with the correct skill set.

The system has defensive tactics for low level control options as well as higher level pain compliance and dis-engagement options.

Advanced Close Quarters Combat Survival Concepts

Because sometimes Use of Force is not an option or concern!

Here we pick up where our core module left off. This is urban reality combatives at its best!​

There WILL be times when higher use of force is the ONLY option!

Still designed as a dis-engagement first option, this course will allow you to move rapidly into higher force responses. This means going from engagement to dis-engagement rapidly.

This course is designed to give you the skills you need for the ambush.

We will show you how to manipulate body language, posturing and verbal cues to sub-consciously place the opponent in a position of weakness, while placing you in a stronger position from which to pre-emptively strike.

We use the predators own behaviour against them to immediately switch them from predator to prey. The training is as always, based on human behaviour and natural instinctive offensive/defensive responses.

The manipulation of sensory input organs with the addition of intuitive striking allows the user to overload the opponents OODA loop and overwhelm them in seconds!

Real organic violent situations are measured in SECONDS NOT MINUTES! Urban combatives trains you to deal with these real situations
