Defensive Tactics: Empty Hands Combat for Bodyguards course

Improve your Fighting Skills ! Dont be the Weakest Link !

Why this program is needed:

With decades of Empty Hands Combat training with different groups of students ( from kids to Police and Army SF) we came to conclusions : 


  • Most of Empty Hands Combat  courses (programs)mostly are only sets of differentfancy techniques (far away from reality in regards of simplicity of understanding, using and efficiency) 

  • Most of training providers don't know how to teach students to recognize situations, adopt to quickly changing hostile environment, improvise and react to danger properly (in time-timing)  to avoid over reactions (possible unreasonable and unlawful actions);

  • Our program is Designed for Small Bodyguard (CPO) Groups (1-5 operatives) operating in Hostile Environment without any logistic and Power Support. Our concept - Task Orientated Adaptation and Improvisation to Perform Effectively and Safely through a Real Assault.

Our project built with keeping in mind, that Situation Determines Preparation :
