Officer Arresting Young Man


Unarmed and Armed security officers need to know how to protect themselves and others from aggressive and noncompliant individuals without the aid of forceful equipment. M.D.T.S. is an integrative approach to dealing with a subject who is non-compliant and unarmed, but offering resistance to being arrested or who is trying to assault a citizen, officer or officers. The foundation of M.D.T.S. is the escort position. Officers will learn several methods to move to a position of advantage and from there secure one of two escort positions
Defensive Tactics

Monadnock® Defensive Tactics 

  • Class Cost: $100.00
  • The Monadnock® Defensive Tactics System (MDTS) is a basic self-defense and subject control program designed for Security, Law Enforcement, Corrections, and Protective Services agencies.
  • This course combines lecture, discussion, demonstration, hands-on performance of techniques and testing in a concise and practical manner.
  • In other aspects of MDTS, you will learn how to handcuff compliant and non-compliant subjects. You will also learn how to deflect an attack through instinctive one and two-hand blocking techniques. These defensive maneuvers are designed to neutralize the attack (not the attacker). However, when you can no longer ensure your safety by performing purely protective techniques, you will have to resort to more active defensive means. And you will learn counterattacking skills such as a punch, edged fist, palm-heel strike, front kick and a few others.
