"The Undercover Edge"
Defensive Tactics with an Offensive Advantage

September 12 - 14, 2017    Frankfort, KY

Program Description

There has been a growing concern for Undercover Officer Safety. Three undercover officers have been killed in the last few years and numerous officers have been assaulted and or shot. Due to the enormous amount of requests by undercover personnel to expand the “hands on” Undercover Defensive Tactics class in the Charlie Fuller and Dave Redemann’s Advanced Undercover Techniques & Survival training program, we have created a 2 1/2 day “hands on” course called The Undercover Edge - Defensive Tactics with an Offensive Advantage.
A 2 1/2 day (20 hours) physically challenging training program designed for law enforcement officers who routinely work undercover. The class has one day of “Undercover Survival” in the classroom and 1 1/2 days of “hands on” practical training on mats and in vehicles. The classroom portion teaches the student how to mentally and physically prepare to survive a “life threatening” attack while working undercover.
All of the “hands on” training is done in the most realistic training environment possible, and the course was developed by highly experienced undercover officers, many who have experienced first hand violent physical assaults while working undercover. The creation of this program is the result of consultation with hundreds of undercover officers who have experienced some sort of “physical assault” while working undercover.
Please note: While all precautions will be made for safety, it is “hands on” practical training so each student must be aware of the inherent risk of injury while participating in this “hands on” portion of the course. Should a student choose to participate in the training, it will be at their own risk and they and their immediate supervisor will be required to sign the Training Injury Waiver which will be provided via email after the student has registered.

Program Topics

• How to draw their weapons from undercover concealment.
• How to attack vital areas of a suspect with secondary weapons and weapons of opportunity.
• How to defend against knife and gun attacks.
• How to look for and use weapons of opportunity in defense of their lives.
• How to defend themselves in vehicles when being attacked by a suspect.
• How to engage a suspect with a firearm and the problems associated with it while “in contact” with the suspect.
NEW - We have added "Laser Shot" simulation scenario training to the program to help teach the students the value of the brainstem shot to increase their survivability.
