The training incorporates drills which simulate the wide variety of street encounters which may require the use of an expandable baton. The training provides efficient defensive baton tactics for students without long hours of training. The tactics are quickly learned, easily practiced, and readily maintained. This course provides techniques that work 90% of the time on 90% of subjects. Students retain the ability to disengage or escalate as the situation may require.
Please speak to one of our Certified Consultants before you purchase a baton. We suggest our students purchase either 21 inch or 26-inch Expandable Baton. Students are encouraged to bring their own duty belts. No live firearms are allowed in the course. Students should be in good physical condition and be prepared to perform rigorous exercises. Wearing boots with good lateral support is highly suggested.
