Cutting Edge Training

America’s Combatives and Liability Trainer Aut viam inveniam aut faciam

("I will either find a way or make one.")

The Cutting Edge of Training

We "functionalize combatives and liability training."© 

Clarity is what we offer. Whether it's civil liability prevention in the current environment or officer safety or physical skills training you've never experienced before, we provide cutting edge training to meet your very real and evolving needs.

Civil liability training: Working with best police attorneys and risk managers, we provide the training they want you to have.

Integrated physical skills training: We took a path leading us to the only solution we've found that works.  Integrated Combatives Problem-Solving© is the integration of the law/policy/ROE, Universal Tactical Principles©,and Applied OODA Theory© into every training concept to meet our end-user's very relevant needs. This synergizes every person's ability to flow in contextually correct, applicable, achievable, and ultimately more effective combatives application. 

Officer safety and survival: Not the same ol', same ol'. Instead, we provide principle-based officer safety principles that apply broadly across your spectrum of calls for service.

We are constantly asked why everyone isn't teaching this way.
We have to admit: we have no clue!

Research--science, not anecdotes--is now proving how humans actually function in a combatives environment. We've been teaching for decades what science is now telling us about effectively training humans.  We train you and your personnel to problem-solve combatives events in the same way our brains function, lessening the inevitable stalls in a fight.  Then we teach you how to articulate your decision-making to prove your proper conduct.

For the police.  For the military.  For responsible civilians.  Everything we teach is evidence-based, all governed by our human limitations.  And we teach you how to articulate and document your decisions.

More than a blog!  Read the latest from our "Think Tank"

Designed from the street and field "in,"
the mat-room or firing range "out."

We positively impact your ability to prevail through mission capable, contextually relevant training.  Each course is relentlessly honed to ensure applicability -- whether it is Effective Combatives Problem-Solving (handgun, rifle, shotgun, police Defensive Tactics, CQB, CQD, impact weapons, less-lethal, force-on-force, deadly force), civil liability prevention, or officer safety and tactics.  This is the highest evolution of training possible...because it is training for those on the cutting edge.

"Cutting Edge."  There's a reason.

"If everybody is thinking alike, somebody isn't thinking."   --George S. Patton

Our track record of repeatedly developing revolutionary training that, years later, becomes the industry-wide standard--today's common sense--is why we are the "cutting edge of training."   We functionalize what before has always been complicated, and present it in a "practical, tactical, and defensible" format that is instantly applicable to your real-world. 

  Why wait ten years when you can be trained in tomorrow's concepts, tactics, and skills TODAY!

The cutting edge of tactical, combatives, and liability prevention training! 
We prove it to you in every class we teach.
