Weapon Ground Defense and Disarming


Weapon Ground Defense and Disarming


Note: This stand alone class has now been moved into part of our Ground Essentials Program under Ground Defense Control Tactics 02.

Today’s officers carry a wide variety of equipment and weapons while on duty. They carry handguns, some carry backup handguns, and many carry oleoresin capsium (OC) as well as some type of baton, handcuffs, and possibly Tasers. It is advantageous for an officer to remain on his or her feet and stay mobile while using this equipment to aid in evading, intercepting and redirecting attacks from an assailant.

An officer who ends up on the ground should attempt to get up. If the attacker is on his feet, there must be distance created between the officer and the subject before the officer can get up.

This system, which incorporates ground fighting and weapon retention, teaches officers how to secure their weapon in the holster and use their hips, legs and hands to gain a position of advantage and regain a standing position. Once this system is mastered, even a smaller-statured officer can use superior leverage and body mechanics to effectively regain the advantage on a larger, unskilled opponent.

Equipment needed: Casual or athletic clothing, footwear, holster, training weapon and belt.
Materials provided: Text, training gun and trainer shirt.

No real or live weapons allowed in the training environment.
