Tactical Baton & Self Defense Tactics
Do you work as an Unarmed Security Officer, Armed Police or Security Officer? Are you carrying a piece of equipment that you have never been trained on? Have you been taught strikes and blocks but no restraint options with your straight or expandable baton? Do you have another force option? Do you want to reduce your liability? Then you need the MEB Course!
The course covers patterns of movement, blocks, strikes, baton retention, control and takedown techniques. This is a hands on course and all participants must demonstrate an acceptable level of proficiency. Written and practical exams will be given at the conclusion of the training. Students should be in good condition and free of any physical limitations. Participants will need their complete duty belt including impact tool and holder.
The MEB Basic Course
Basic Course certification techniques include Stance, Patterns of Movement, Baton Grip, Baton Methods of Carry, Baton Draws, Baton Two-Handed Grip Blocks, Baton Counter Strikes, and Baton Retention. This is a well-rounded training approach that provides officer protection at three specific ranges for concluding an attack.
The second line of defense for stopping an attacker is at the intermediate range. As its name implies, it is the area that falls between full arm extension and within one foot of the officer's chest. There is less space at the intermediate range, as well as at the close-in range, for performing large sweeping baton strikes as in the extended range. Consequently, two-handed strikes and blocks are designed for rapid and effective use within a confined or compact space like the intermediate range. This ability is unique to the MEB Program.
The most important range is close-in. Close-in encounters pose the greatest danger to an officers safety (or survival) due to the extremely tight space he (she) has to effectively and appropriately maneuver a baton for self-defense or subject control. Close-in encounters involve combat within one foot or less of the officer's chest. Close-in encounter techniques again include two-handed, strikes and/or blocks.
Today, baton training must be appropriate and reasonable as defined by contemporary community and law enforcement standards. In a phrase, training must be court defensible. The Council's certification programs are appropriate, reasonable, and court defensible
