Custom Courses & Sustainment Training

SOS-D (Special Operations Self-Defense) is based on current feedback from Soldiers, Marines and Federal agents traveling all over the world.

The emphasis is to give the student a realistic view of real-world engagements to allow them to establish tactics to help them with the encounter before, during and after. The Force-on-Force threat awareness scenarios and reaction drills will help students develop good decision-making under stress. This is crucial when moving up and down the use of force.

Training will include the following topics: Striking and Grappling, Weapons Transitioning and Retention, Edged and Impact Weapons, Improvised and makeshift weapons, Fighting with non-metallic edged weapons, Fighting in low light conditions, Live scenarios with role players, Scenarios with Multiple attackers, Blade design with tactical carry, One handed manipulations and Dual deployment of weapons.

SOCP® Creator Greg Thompson's Combative Tips

To evolve the Modern Army Combatives Program (MACP) Greg Thompson was asked to help. He volunteered his time to be videoed demonstrating cuff prisoner handling vehicle extractions, post, frame, hook and other techniques. The Techniques will go on a secure military site for soldiers and Instructors. He closed with lecturing on things that soldiers forget or get complaisant with.
