PUC

The ShivWorks Practical Unarmed Combat module is a foundational block of instruction that introduces students to the parameters and context of criminal assaults. This block can be customized from a four-hour format to a 16-hour format. Students first learn how criminals actually assault citizens in the real world. They are then introduced to strategies and tactics for challenging and preempting the potential assailant. The course then shifts to simple physical skills for countering a spontaneous assault, regaining initiative, and escaping. Instruction may also include ground work and empty-hand applications against firearms and edged weapons, depending on seminar length. Please check our training calendar for upcoming offerings of PUC and other ShivWorks courses near you.
