Straight Baton Course

Straight Baton Course

The NLETC Baton System was created to incorporate the long standing principles of the NLETC. The program starts with the basic patterns of movement and blocks that are fundamental to the NLETC’s Control Defensive Tactics System. The NLETC Baton System also incorporates the NLETC’s Handgun/Long Gun Retention & Disarming System. The NLETC Baton System includes, blocks, parry’s, locks and provides the student with options to control, cuff or disengage. 

Equipment needed: Casual or athletic clothing, footwear, straight baton.  Collapsible is recommended but if agency still utilizes non-collapsible batons they may be used.
Materials provided: Online Text.

8-Hour Instructors Course
Prerequisite: Core Essentials OR Approval of NLETC with comparable training.

* Note: Core Essentials is recommended as it has instructor development aspects to it as well as fundamental 'core' techniques, stances and other aspects that are within every single NLETC course.  For course cohesion, understanding things such as power stance, force efficiency and other concepts which are taught in Core Essentials allows us to decrease instructor certification times within other courses. Should instructors wish to not take Core Essentials and take other elective courses such as Handgun Long Gun Retention and Disarming, the course may need to be longer than the standard 8-hour course. A Training Board Member will need to handle these on a case by case basis.
