2-DAY | ORGANIC MEDIUM ENTRY

This module explores the subject matter of non-permissive environments and the weapons of opportunity that can be improvised, concealed and used in high risk situations.

Using case studies to reverse-engineer criminal methodologies involving weapons, the Weaponology Module focuses on the evidence-based employment of austere, environmentally sourced offensive tools.

Designed for both government and civilian personnel that travel abroad and may have a need to create their own defensive options, this module not only focuses on fabrication and employment but also the frequently overlooked and rarely taught aspects of concealment and the “smugglers mindset” based on criminal modus operandi from around the world.

This is designed to be an add-on series of skillsets for anyone with an existing combatives base or as an introduction to working in austere weapons-based environments.

STUDENT GEAR REQUIREMENTS:

– Note taking materials

2-DAY | COUNTER CUSTODY ENTRY

The Counter Custody Entry™ module is designed for participants with a desire or need to understand the reality of criminal abduction and captivity as common in many parts of this world.

This is an immersive training experience designed to familiarize students with the complexities and nuances of contemporary organized crime groups and criminal operations, specific to the evolution of an irregular custody scenario, from victim targeting to long term captivity.

With access to limited resources, tools, or support, participants will learn to observe, identify and overcome some of the most current tactics used for assault and abduction, as well as how to identify and build improvised weapons, and how to use and conceal counter custody tools.

This intensive course provides high-pressure situation-based training for those seeking proactive and, most importantly, realistic solutions for moving in Non-Permissive environments.
