Gracie Survival Tactics: Participant Feedback

October 24, 2010

The following testimonial was submitted by a participant of the GST course in Portland, Oregon from October 4-8, taught by Ryron and Rhalan Gracie.

"The Gracie Survival Tactics course has been instrumental in preparing our deputies, sergeants, and command staff for the worst case scenarios up to and including violent assaults and ground level defense. With an emphasis on: surprise attack counters, weapon retention techniques, survival and escape strategies, and arrest and control procedures, this course provides the vital skills necessary to gain the "position of advantage" over your opponent. The material(s) taught in the course are practical, and based on control tactics . Our agency has adopted the Gracie Survival Tactics curriculum .

Since hosting our first course in 2010, with overwhelming success, we fully anticipate on hosting another Instructors course in 2011. We will continue hosting courses to give as many agencies as possible the opportunity to participate and adopt the Gracie Survival Tactics as their Defensive Tactics program. I would highly recommend this course to any Law Enforcement agency.
