Tactical Combatives Level I

One Full Day

Prerequisite: Inro to Combatives or Womens Combatives

Class Size: 8-30
This class follows up where the Intro left off. Getting straight into practical exercises, you will begin to learn more advanced and violent techniques of winning a close quarters fight on the street. The instructors will lead you through utilization of the improvised striking tools, weapon take aways as well as reversals and bettering a bad position. We will run striking drills to improve speed and accuracy and you will participate in force-on-force fighting scenarios with instructors wearing protective suits to get a realistic look at a street fight. This isn't the UFC - there are no octagons, referees or bells.

The following topics will be covered during the course:
  • Violence of action
  • Combination strikes
  • Going on the offense (buying time to get away)
  • Elbow Strikes
  • Knee Strikes
  • Chokes and choke escapes
  • Clench and under hook drills
  • Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (position and submissions)
  • Reversals
  • Deployment of improvised striking tools (keys, pen, knife, etc.)
  • Weapon take aways

Athletic clothing, long pants, mouth guard


This is a physically demanding course. It will be held indoors and on mats, but you must be free of any injuries and in decent physical condition.
