What is C-Tac?
C‐Tac will give you a well‐rounded effective personal protection plan that will cover intelligent threat assessment and planning, basic firearm use and close quarter manipulation (Disarms, Weapon Retention), effective and realistic defensive tactics (Self‐Defense) that will work in multiple environments including hallways, doorways, ground fighting, and in and around motor vehicles ‐ just to name a few. You will study the urban weapons program that will teach you how to take everyday objects that are around you and use them as tools in a threatening encounter. Also as part of the urban weapons program is how to use a bladed weapon or how to defend against the bladed weapon if someone attempts to use one on you.
What is the Development / Student Progression for C‐Tac?
C‐Tac has three phases and each phase contains three levels of rank.
Phase 1 “basic training”
The first phase is called the basic training phase. In this phase you learn your basic defensive tactics/self-defense, all of which are based on a force continuum that is socially acceptable. You also go through basic handling of a firearm and start on the basic principles of gun disarming. In phase 1 you will also learn the basics of home defense as well as learn techniques to increase your situational awareness or tactical awareness.
Phase 2 “the car phase”
Phase 2 of the program is the “car phase”, in this phase you learn to use all of the basics from the previous level in and around vehicles. The defensive tactics are based on scenarios like a carjacking or someone attacking you outside of the car. All of the previous principles based on weapons disarms are studied in and around the vehicle. Additionally the student will learn how to do their own advance work when traveling in the vehicle as well as a basic study of counter surveillance.
Phase 3 “the war phase”
Phase 3 of the program is called the “war phase”. In this phase now that the student has reached an advanced level they are able to take the information into scenario training at a higher pace. This will give the student an opportunity to start to develop a level of stress inoculation. Phase 3 also gets into more advanced concepts on edge and blunt weaponry as well as firearms.
Phase 4 “advanced training phase”
Phase 4 of the program is the black level phase. Once the practitioner has reached this phase they start to study advanced level principles and tactics.
