Monadnock Defensive Tactics System (MDTS) Instructor Course
Basic defensive tactics skills for proven self-protection
This 2-day, highly dynamic course shows you how to use your hands, elbows, knees and feet for protection against an attack, especially in close quarter battles (CQB). It relies heavily on practical hands-on applications and is intended for first responders who want instruction in how to use their personal weapons for self-defense and subject-control for escort and handcuffing.
With a format that combines the proven effectiveness of the Basic Monadnock Defensive Tactics System course, this course offers first responders the skills, information and preparation to meet the challenges of the job and provides them with the skills necessary to return to their agency and provide training to others.
This program is taught by leading experts who have real-world experience in both psychomotor skill programs and field applications for those skills. The class will provide the student with necessary information to return to his/her agency and, as that agency’s instructor, develop and conduct a specialized program designed around the agency’s exact operational needs in the area of self-defense and subject-control tactics for sworn personnel.
