Summary

Today’s society is becoming increasingly more likely to resist the lawful actions of law enforcement officers. It is critical for officers to have the necessary defensive tactics (DT) skills to successfully overcome resistance in an efficient, safe, and legal manner. The answer to achieving these results is NOT in teaching thousands of possible responses to an infinite number of potential attacks. The answer is to first use a Risk Management approach and identify the most common and dangerous attacks on officers. Next, a successful DT program must stress core concepts, proper body mechanics, natural instinctive movement, and proven principles of survival.

Advanced Concepts in Defensive Tactics: A Survival Guide for Law Enforcement presents the instruction of Master Police Instructor Chuck Joyner. Developed during his tenure as a FBI use of force instructor, and expanded by his lifelong dedication to the martial arts, Joyner’s Survival Sciences DT program relies on adhering to advanced concepts rather than memorizing countless techniques. Based on extensive research and actual street experience, this manual:

  • Focuses on defensive tactics that are easily taught, understood, and applied by officers regardless of their size, strength, or athletic ability
  • Covers hand-to-hand tactics, groundwork, weapon retention/weapon disarming, handcuffing, and the survival mindset
  • Explains the necessary integration of hands-on DT techniques with common law enforcement secondary weapons (e.g., baton, pepper spray, TASER)
  • Introduces a new use of force model (Dynamic Resistance-Response Model) which correctly depicts the dynamic encounter between an officer and a resistor by first focusing on the level of resistance by the subject
  • Offers practical solutions reducing officer, department, and municipality liability
  • Provides password access to the author’s supplemental training videos online
