Our newest Defensive Tactics Instructor Program was developed in 2021 and is a brand new approach to Defensive Tactics. It incorporates modern and realistic techniques based on a wide range of martial arts disciplines including Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. These techniques are delivered in a scientifically based teaching methodology that enhances learning and retention. We are in a new era, where now Officers are not just concerned with taking control of a suspect, but also defending themselves against assault. These issues are addressed in this program. The program is comprised of 3 days of essential techniques. 

The Core Essentials Program will train the
Defensive Tactics Instructor in the following areas:


Joint Locks, Common attacks against Officers including strikes and standing grappling, Body Lock and Joint Lock Takedowns, Transitions to Handcuffing, and compliant and non compliant Handcuffing Techniques.

Introduced in 2022

What is NLETC?

National Law Enforcement Training Center is a Non Profit Organization which has been delivering Defensive Tactics and Use of Force Training to Law Enforcement Personnel for 40 years. We were the developers of the Lateral Vascular Neck Restraint System. We have trained hundreds of Law Enforcement Agencies all over the USA, and as far away as Sweden. We are governed by a board of directors, and our goal is to provide safe, legally defensible, medically sound and effective training. We are not rooted in just one style of martial arts, but we draw from many disciplines.
