Participants will practice retaining weapons in close quarter situations for the purpose of maintaining control over an aggressive assailant or suspect whose resistance may range from partial compliance to active resisting, while exercising maximum safety for all parties involved.
This class is specifically designed for private security and law enforcement professionals seeking to learn or enhance their existing knowledge of weapons retention as it can be applied to an aggressive or combative assailant.
The participants will analyze how weapons can be targeted and taken away by an aggressor along with the appropriate application, time, and expectation of the suspect’s reaction to the technique itself. This will be accomplished through lecture, hands-on training, and interaction.
Students will inventory a number of actions and responses to weapons retention and repeat the movements and actions that will drill the skill into their nervous system so the performance can be maintained under duress.
The students will analyze the neurological responses of the body when contact is made, and how to disarm an opponent by confusing the nervous system to release control or grip on the weapon.
Students will be evaluated through class discussions, individual scenarios, and peer evaluation.
