We prepare you for violent attacks by exposing you to the most terrifying threat to your survival. Our 20-hour workshop covers the TORIS methodology (including the basics of our proprietary Simulator) for usable options, capacity, and control in scenarios where incapacitating techniques are justified and necessary.
- Learn the cognitive, physical and social elements of personal combat
- Experience the stress impact from real attacks
- Train to fight for your life—without risking it
- See why disorientation is your worst nightmare
- Find out how your current training may be setting you up for failure
The Threat Oriented Rapid Incapacitation System is an easily learned method for total incapacitation, with a novel focus on skill-integration and stress induction. On top of this framework, we teach personnel the 13 Training Benchmarks for lethal force, our RI Strategic Systems©, and introduce our phased practice of Marksmanship, Integration, and Simulation. Course materials will cover the mechanisms of high-risk human injuries, their medical short/long-term impact and, where appropriate, its immediate combat value. Subjects include:
- Transitioning From Primary to Personal Weapons Systems
- Force Escalation/Deescalation
- Integrating Combat Stress
- Knife Wounding and Carry Considerations
- Understanding Neurological Inertia
Additionally, personnel will learn to use a risk-aware safety template when training or using techniques that expose themselves and their agencies to injury and liability. "Safety in Training" means training-in safety, and providing debilitating technique training without reciprocal safety information is simply negligent. Upon successful completion of the Course Of Instruction, students will understand debilitating injury, its medical short-term/long- term impact, and have demonstrable skill in rapidly incapacitating opponents.
- COI will promote decision-making, and students will be informed of injury/liability.
- Scenarios and Simulation will address multiple threats.
- COI will be conducted in (and account for) practical equipment, i.e. tactical kit, including body armor, primary and secondary weapons systems, etc.
- Classroom to hands-on training time ratio approximately 15% classroom and 85% hands-on, with written examinations.
Because of the nature of this information, TORIS may require a background check. We use a service that is more stringent than the California LiveScan system for gun-ownership, to ensure the safety of our students and community.
