Course Description:

The CONTROL & ARREST course is 'our' [BTS] approach to the problems that face every officer who must penetrate the proverbial 'reactionary gap' and take a suspect into custody.  Most conventional approaches have officers focusing on complex motor skills and their cuffing ritual before they've actually, tactically confirmed the suspect is a non-combatant. Mr. Blauer wrote an article (treatise) called THE THEORY OF PRESUMED COMPLIANCE [PC] which explains some of the psychological & attitudinal issues that make sudden resistance at close quarters such a problem.  The physiological & tactical issues are addressed with our renowned SPEAR SYSTEM research. 

This course is designed to teach the essential skills and drills for the application Control and Arrest Tactics that are compatible with the SPEAR SYSTEM's Counter Ambush Training: It will cover Startle/Flinch Conversion Theory, Establishing Point of Domination, Control Positions, Solo and Tandem Takedowns, Control to Out of Control Drills, Handcuffing Position and Vehicle Extraction. 

*Attendees that are Certified as SPEAR System Coaches (must bring a copy of diploma) will receive instructor certification. It is not mandatory to be certified to receive the training but non SPEAR Certified Attendees will receive a completion diploma. Email us for hosting or other course details.
