MDTS THREAT RECOGNITION & MANAGEMENT TACTICS (Interactive Lecture)

Course Description/Objectives:
Most citizen defense training focuses on technical development of motor skills whether that's shooting, blade work, or unarmed combative skill sets and simply glosses over tactics. It is much easier to teach someone how to palm strike than it is to teach them how to recognize when they will be mugged or assaulted.

The MDTS Threat Recognition & Management Tactics course provides students with the skills necessary for dealing with violent criminal assault before it happens. Avoidance when possible is always the best strategy but avoidance is predicated upon ones ability to recognize potential danger. This course emphasizes realistic and effective pre-engagement tactics based upon an in depth understanding of how criminals operate. We must understand the problem, before we can develop solutions.

This is a non-physical 2 hr. class featuring a PowerPoint presentation on criminal assault and interactive drills used to develop proper pre-engagement tactics. This course is suitable for men and women of any age or stature.

Course Topics/Modules of Instruction Include:
Understanding Criminal Assault
Contact Plan of Action
Awareness and Task Fixation
Distance Control Tactics
Assessing the Potential Threat
Verbal Challenge, De-escalation and Physical Boundary Setting
Evasion & Escape Tactics
Taking Initiative

Equipment:
Comfortable clothing/street clothes, water, note taking materials

Practical Unarmed Combat is the option used when there are no other superior tactical advantages (weaponry, evasion and escape, etc.) available to you.
