LETI Ground Fighting and Control Instructor

Description

The Ground Fighting and Control seminar is designed to give students the opportunity to review use of force justification, effective force considerations, and de-escalation benefits of techniques that aim to control as oppose to injure. Students will learn a variety of techniques to help officers win fights on the ground as well as take advantage of ground control opportunities to detain suspects. Students will then be required to demonstrate their understanding of the techniques and participate in teach-backs with other class members.

Students who successfully complete this rigorous and dynamic 32-hour seminar will be fully prepared to return to their agency to train fellow officers in this effective ground fighting and control system.

LETI Ground Fighting and Control was designed by LETI Defensive Tactics Lead Instructor, Zach Chinea. The system is strongly based in Jiu Jitsu combined with elements of Krav Maga, Judo and several other defensive tactics and control systems. LETI Ground Fighting and Control is P.O.S.T. approved for academy instruction and is currently in use by Law Enforcement Training Institute Basic Law Enforcement Academy.

During this training, students will review use of force justification, effective force considerations, and the de-escalation benefits of techniques that aim to control rather than injure resistive subjects. Students will learn a variety of techniques to help officers win fights on the ground as well as take advantage of ground control opportunities to overcome resistance.

Topics covered include:

Handcuffing, escorts, takedowns, passive resistance, control positions, escapes, submissions, and weapon retention.

Students will be required to demonstrate proficiency with the physical skills and techniques as well as demonstrate effectiveness as an instructor in those same skills and techniques.
