Handgun Combatives: Undercover Narcotics Officer

Handgun Combatives:  Undercover Narcotics Officer

Focus:  All sworn or commissioned officers, or military personnel.

Length:  16-hours


You have a dangerous assignment, working deeply inside a world of threat and paranoia.  Every contact where drugs and money are about to combined must be considered as ripe for a rip-off.  Having your identity blown--or even questioned--can sometimes result in a sudden shooting.  These people are armed and under-the-influence...not a good combination.

We prepare you to meet the most common threats you face as an undercover or narcotics officer or agent. We teach you to fight in a multi-disciplined way in order to problem-solve and survive the vicious and often unprovoked assaults that have taken the lives and health of U/Cs in the past.  These combative live-fire seminars are about solving your real-world tactical shooting needs when the metal meets the meat and you cannot afford to be second best.  We avoid "competition strategies" and techniques.  Instead, you live and work in the most real world there is:  where hitting another person with bullets means you get to go home today.  It is about REAL-WORLD tactics that have been proven over decades and throughout history to keep you alive during those violent, sudden, vicious, and short-lived police firefights.

Developed from the street "in," NOT from the live-fire range "out."

This is contextually-correct training at its highest--without gaming and wishful thinking.  This is about hitting people with bullets who need to be hit RIGHT NOW, while avoiding being shot yourself.  If you do it on the street, then it must be practiced in training.  If something is too dangerous to do in training, then you shouldn't do it anywhere.  We bring street reality and functionality "in" to the live-fire range training for your benefit.

This training is combat proven system.  It has continued to revolutionize and evolve over the last 30 years.  This is a fast paced, content-packed sixteen-hours of enough classroom time to understand the concepts, and more than enough shooting and hitting to incorporate the lessons into your "toolbox."  These are a “must attend” program for any narcotics officer or agent preparing to utilize justifiable force combined with absolutely proven methods of fire and safety.

Our Handgun Combatives Programs

Each CUTTING EDGE TRAINING Tactical Handgun Combatives programs was developed with fighting in mind, and has shown over the years their effectiveness in keeping officers (and military personnel) alive in the worst situations possible.  It remains the only program of its kind that was “reverse-engineered” to achieve survival goals.  We studied how police officers are actually murdered and assaulted in the real-world.  Then we put that knowledge together with how the human being inside the uniform actually reacts in that pressure-filled life and death environment, and created a training system that has literally changed the law enforcement community’s understanding of how to put bullets on-target on-time, in-time in order to survive.  There are no "game philosophies" designed to speed up the shooter's firing rate at the expense of life-saving tactics and hit accuracy.  The emphasis is solely on your gunfight:  recognizing the Threat early enough to make a difference, reacting tactically to avoid being hit while hitting a suspect with combat accuracy, significantly affecting his or her ability to remain an imminent threat.  Finally, this course also emphasizes your very real need to defend your actions in the inevitable post-shooting aftermath.

"This was a great course.  It's tough to pinpoint just one part of the instruction that was most valuable to me.  Overall, all the areas that were discussed on the range/classroom were invaluable..."  M., US Drug Enforcement Administration

"This training is going to save my life!  The scenario where you have to re-act to a gun in your face was incredible.  Prior to this class I didn't have a clear plan to handle that type of threat."
