Laws change frequently and therefore what was once proper and viable has now become taboo and deemed too dangerous. With science and technology entering the picture, training has had to change as to not harm, nor, infringe on the rights of its citizens. The following training program will establish a strong, knowledgeable and immediate understanding of close quarter defensive weapons applications and tactics. This training program will work for all security, and law enforcement agencies, in all countries. Your agency will most certainly want to embrace this concept of safe training in today's litigious world. This program was designed by Soke Sensei Leonard V Godinho for that purpose.
