This training focuses on reality based, armed and unarmed, practical solutions to real world close-quarters combative encounters faced by private citizens and protection professionals. Primary emphasis is placed on tactics and applications of recommended modern daily carry items and their unarmed equivalents. This includes the tactical pen, tactical flashlight, folding knife (blade folded), baton, and kubotan.

This curriculum is designed to provide trainees with improved mindset towards an assailant, as well as instill a greater sense of situational awareness. The core physical techniques are primarily percussive (striking), with escapes from common grabs and embraces. Using realistic targets and other parameters, the trainee is familiarized with and instilled with the necessary determination to prioritize survival in an altercation.
