PPCT Defensive Tactics / HFRG Use of Force Instructor Course
NOTE: This course fills the requirements & standards of PA MPOETC in order to become recognized as a defensive tactics/use of force instructor
Course Description: The PPCT Pressure Point Control Tactics course was the first subject control system designed based on tactical, legal and medical research. It was originally developed as a supplement to existing defensive tactics or impact weapon systems. The course focuses on two primary areas: controlling low-level resistance with finger tip touch pressure to nerve pressure points and controlling high-level resistance with defensive counter strikes and the baton, which produce motor dysfunctions and controlled stuns. Course Goals: • To examine survival learning research in an effort to enhance survivability in combat situations. • To identify the primary and secondary striking targets and their medical implications. • To identify the PPCT Fluid Shock Wave Principle, a system of striking that enhances subject control. • To teach the recommended PPCT methods of de-escalation. • To refine student technique to the instructor level. • To teach instructional methods designed to enhance a student’s ability to learn survival techniques, increase his/her confidence level, and assist in the successful application of physical techniques.
