The Peacekeepers Training Defensive Tactics Instructor Program is a challenging class that is designed to prepare the participants to train officers in a variety of empty hand and less lethal control tool combatives. The course will be both physically and mentally demanding. Participants will learn the fundamental strategies of how to effectively teach physical defensive and control skills to their students. Participants will also be introduced to advanced training methods developed by our experienced instructors to increase the coordination and physical abilities of our students. These methods are critical for instructors teaching diverse groups to help their students develop skills and confidence.
