“It was a privilege to be able to participate in this course. As a career self-defense instructor I have the unique opportunity to teach the average person self-defense and I am a huge advocate for continued training whether in my empty hand classes or in my concealed carry classes. I feel de-escalation of a critical situation is step 1 and when you potentially have someone who may fit in the special population’s categories it is even more critical. I think this course gives a great picture of how to recognize a potential issue with a person that may fit in the category and how to work with them.
I have had the opportunity to not only train with some LEO’s in my over 30 years of training but also teach some of them. It is my feeling that the law enforcement community does not get enough training on de-escalation tactics and I think any program like this can be very beneficial to any police officer as well as educators and self-defense instructors of all types. I HIGHLY recommend this course for anyone who works in the public service field and may have to encounter someone like this.
