Special Skills Courses
B.E.C.O.N. stands for Barricade, Egress (Evacuate), Control, Oppose, Notify.
The B.E.C.O.N. course is an all encompassing program that trains staff to effectively respond to active shooter events in Schools (nationally certified), Workplaces, Hospitals, and Places of Worship.
We understand that limited resources, geographical location, size of the facility, and not knowing how to set up training can present significant challenges and obstacles.
We can help you provide your staff with practical, effective, reality based, hands-on training to meet your goals and objectives.
We can sustain your training program and prepare your staff for an Active Shooter/Killer Event (ASE).
This one day course is an unarmed combatives course using the “Gutter Fighting” approach. The technique uses gross motor strikes that are easily recalled under stress.
The gutter fighting approach gets its lineage and principles from Rex Applegate and William Fairbairn. These men trained WWII Special Operations Forces and Office of Strategic Services (OSS) clandestine operators to incapacitate their attackers using close quarter techniques. These same close quarter techniques are used today by our elite U.S. Special Operation Forces.
This program is designed to provide the knowledge and physical skills to defeat and/or counter criminal forms of restraint in order to escape. The strikes are quick and effective and designed to give maximum damage to an assailant. Techniques in this course include: combative striking and counters to physical control and weapons disarms.
This two-day course focuses on bridging the gap of a physical altercation that escalates to the use of lethal force in confined spaces. You will be trained in simple yet effective combatives techniques with the intent to create more pain and violence to successfully transition to use of a firearm.
