Krav Maga for American Law Enforcement has the primary objectives of Officer Safety and Subject Control. In the past, most AC/DT systems for LE focused on control techniques that are designed to minimize the likelihood of injury to a suspect while taking custody thereby avoiding lawsuits to the agency. The problem was that those techniques never work in the real world environment when a suspect is actively fighting or attacking an Officer. A ‘wrist-lock’ takedown to cuffing technique really only really works 1-on-1 if the suspect allows it to. This lead to officers wasting time trying ineffective techniques, allowing suspects to gain the upper hand in an altercation, and causing Officers to have to escalate force far beyond what may have been called for in the first place.
The Krav Maga Defensive Tactics system was designed specifically from the other direction…that is, that we train officers what to do when it has gone bad, seriously bad. We first give them the tools to survive violent encounters, and then build in control tactics and techniques that put the officer on the high ground once the situation is beginning to be controlled. We repeat this mantra over and over…”Stop the problem, gain safe control…..Stop the problem, gain safe control.” In a nutshell that is exactly what the system is designed to do.
Because we give officers life saving tools that not only work but are proven time and time again to work in the street under stress, we are inherently also giving the officers a higher command presence, and that leads to fewer violent altercations in the street. We approach every contact from a position of advantage or of control…of the situation, our environment, and of the subject. TACTICAL KRAV MAGA
The Leaders and Innovators in Krav Maga Defensive Tactics Training
The Tactical Krav Maga group was formed and is staffed by Expert Level, Train the Trainer distinguished Krav Maga Instructors, certified Tactical Firearms Instructors, and active and former Law Enforcement personnel. This group has been training Agencies, in Colorado, and across the United States for over 15 years. Based out of the Colorado Krav Maga Training Centers, they have also run the largest and longest standing combined Krav Maga, Tactical training, and Physiological training in the world, aka ‘Krav Maga Winter Camp’. Many, if not all, Krav Maga training sessions that include weapons training put on by other groups across the globe, are based directly, if not solely, on what was innovated by Tactical Krav Maga.
Our Mission was Born out of Necessity
Tactical Krav Maga is the designed evolution of the Israeli Krav Maga self defense system, juxtaposed with modern weapons training, and specifically designed to address the scenarios, and environments seen in today’s Law Enforcement actions and other documented armed violent encounters.
Tactical Krav Maga recognizes and seeks to fill holes in today’s modern training functionality, and where techniques and principles may be perfectly sound, training methodology was found to create ‘crutches’, ‘scars’, and ‘habits’ that even the most realistic training scenarios were not addressing.
Tactical Krav Maga brings the sound principles of the last decade to solve new threats, adds tactical and weapons training to self defense, and creates skill-sets by using special drills and tools to force a quickened perceptual response to a threat, and not just rely on the largest response available, which the practitioner may not have adequate time or distance to deploy. The outcome of the training allows the practitioner to be proactive in a response, or reactive when time and space dictate it, and still offers options after the initial reaction to transition back to proactive tactics.
