Weapon Retention from Mount (Gracie Breakdown)

March 10, 2016

Produced in Collaboration with 5.11 Tactical

5.11 Tactical recently started a series of Subject Matter Expert videos covering various fields firearm training to tactical driving. For their hand-to-hand defensive tactics experts, they've recruited Ryron and Rener to share some critical concepts from the Gracie Survival Tactics course. In the video they demonstrate a series of techniques that enable LEOs to retain their weapons AND put the suspect in handcuffs, with minimal escalation of force. With training like this, LEOs are spared the stress of a controversial shooting, and most importantly, go home at the end of their shift.
