Surival Training

Our professional consultants include former U.S. Special Forces soldiers and law enforcement agents with over 150 years of personal and combat experience. Together, we have conducted numerous global and regional threat briefings and vulnerability threat assessments, training courses on situational awareness, force protection, anti-kidnapping, and urban combat, and we have employed various advanced technologies for the Department of Defense, Department of State, law enforcement agencies, and private corporations.

Situational Awareness for Survival and Escape Courses

Our professionals have refined counter-abduction/kidnapping techniques and developed a course focused on reinforcing individual security posturing and survivability in worse case scenarios. These SAFEC lessons are held in our training facility, and focused on topics including:

  • State and Local Threats Briefing - In this lesson, students will receive an information briefing from open sources on potential threats within their state and local region.
  • Situational Awareness - This lesson will expand the student’s situation and observation awareness accurately, fully, and clearly, regarding those events and actions that contribute to an enhanced personal security posture. In the lesson, the instructor provides measures to take to determine the threat in any given area; how criminal identify their victims; criminal target selection considerations; the measures to be taken for protection while in a travel status (whether using public or private transportation); the precautions for hotel residence security; measures to be taken in residential protection, etc.
  • Social Media - Social Networking sites have become the new go-to attack point for malware, phishing and spam, security vendor Sophos found in its Security Threat Report 2011. There are 3.5 new threats per second (almost 12,600 per hour), 1/3 of web users are attacked by cybercriminals using social networking sites to target victims. (Source: In this lesson the student will receive information on social networks’ threats.
  • Physical Restraint and Escape - This lesson provides students with effective methods used to defeat common physical restraint devices, to include: flex cuffs, rope, chains, and tape.
  • Survival and Defense Skills - This lesson is designed to make you more aware, prepared, and ready for any situation that may occur in your everyday life on any given day. This lesson differs from other self-defense classes in that they start from the point of attack, and since I believe attacks begin before it becomes physical, we teach how to avoid the attack altogether.
