This 40-hour course is an all-inclusive program that includes a practical approach to modern street officer defense, which is based on what officers are currently experiencing on the streets. We’ve kept the techniques and concepts in this system both simple and effective so that officers have an increased opportunity for success. This isn’t an outdated pressure point wrist lock-based system that isn’t practical and seldom works when attempted in the field. Proven police trainers constructed this system with the street officer in mind based on years of patrol experience with current police policies taken into consideration. This system provides both standing and ground defense concepts that are seldom found in other law enforcement systems that are often taught by civilian trainers that have never been in a police uniform. The program provides you with our award-winning teaching methodologies that are proven to increase interest in training. Missouri POST has also approved our program, and the Eastern Missouri Police Academy in St. Charles, MO has adopted our system to be taught to each police cadet entering the police academy. Our system comes with a free illustrated instruction manual for each graduate instructor of the program, We also offer our student manual that is available for purchase to each graduating instructor’s students in their agency. This modern tactics system includes a two-year certification with both phone and email support and comes with free courtroom testimony for any current instructor of our program. The graduates of our program will receive a two-year instructor certificate and our dry-fit instructor polo. You’ll find below a list of techniques and concepts that are covered in this program.

Body language and awareness

The course cancellation policy requires a minimum of a 14-day prior notice to the event when a student will not be attending the course. The notification to not attend should be made by email through our website, and if they identify no replacement student, cancellations with less than 14-day notice will be subject to a ($40.00) cancellation fee. We will charge no shows without email notification the full course fee, even if the payment has not already been received. We offer one-year future course credit for any no show that is charged a full course fee. This policy is in effect as of May 1, 2020, and you or as a representative of your agency agrees to the above policy by registering for this course. BSTS LLC sends email notifications of course cancellations or venue changes to the registered student email prior to the event, and will not be responsible for travel expenses related to these events. Please contact us by email or phone if you have questions about this policy. This policy is in place because of students that register for courses and take training slots without attending training, which potentially removes the opportunity for another officer to attend. We pay the instructors teaching these programs based on the number of officers scheduled to attend the event, which is figured into our travel cost as well. The lack of communication by officers that don’t attend or register without department approval is the reason this policy exists.
