OR (these courses run at the simultaneously in different rooms)

*The ISR-CLUTCH – 5 Day Course: Monday, November 5 through Friday, November 9, 2018 is open to civilians (18 years and up)

The ISR CIV/ PM – 2 Day Subject Control Course: Monday, November 5 & Tuesday, November 6, 2018 is open to civilians (18 years and up).

“The ISR Matrix; Beneath the Surface” – The Functional Integration of Morally and Legally Defensible Tactics & Strategy through the Use of Force Continuum.
This year’s summit  will build on our foundation of subject control (day 1 & 2) and firearm retention (day 3) and then be integrated directly into our close quarter defense curriculum with the Clutch System (Day 4 and 5) for two days of its close quarter fighting and weapon/ tool transitions approach. We will also showcase its counter knife and defensive blade module into that material and re-integrate that module right back into our subject control and retention work from the previous days.

ISR Matrix Clutch (Self-Defense & Personal Protection) – FIVE DAYS (weekend off)

Thursday, October 4, Friday, October 5, Monday, October 8, Tuesday, October 9 and Wednesday, October 10, 2018

Training Hours:  9am to 5pm

Note: Saturday, October 6th and Sunday, October 7th are non-training (off) days.

Description: Participants will be introduced to the ISR Matrix’s Close Quarter Defense & Personal Protection System, the ISR Matrix Clutch. The ISR Matrix’s approach to criminal probes, interviews and set ups will be addressed as well as the strategies and tactics in dealing with the violence that can and may follow. This particular course will be unique in that it will introduce much of the close quarter combative tactics previously unavailable to civilians and showcase elements from all three of its initial hand to hand phases including portions of its clinch with cloth (attached fighting), improvised weapons, and counter knife / defensive knife modules. Participants should expect and be prepared for moderate levels of exercise and training. The majority of this initial introductory course will be information driven in regards to showcasing unique ways in dealing with violence within close quarters and the clinch but like all ISR training will be equally matched with drills, pressure testing, teach backs and plenty of instruction to assure all those who participate can retain what they have learned and take it back home with them.

ISR Matrix CAT: Self-Defense & Counter Assault Tactics for Women

ISR Matrix CAT: Self-Defense & Counter Assault Tactics for Women 
Join us for this 4 hour introductory clinic!  Open to women ages 16 and up. IMG_2929

Check us out on Facebook and Instagram 

DATE: Saturday, April 1, 2017

TIME: 10am to 2pm 

LOCATION: 20801 Johnson St, Pembroke Pines, FL 33029

What is the ISR Matrix CAT and how does it address the self-protection and self-defense of women? ISR Matrix CAT is a personal protection system exclusively for women and its emphasis is on a full spectrum integrated methodology that imparts information, tactics and strategies while in an energetic pro-active and empowering environment. 

What to expect from this four hour clinic?
Participants should prepare for light to moderate physical activity and dress as if they were working out at a local gym. Because it is an introductory clinic, participants will have small breaks in-between technical portions and we will be integrating pertinent information along the way. Participants will learn to strike properly, escape basic grips and holds, and defend themselves standing and when grounded. This clinic is taught and coached in a fun manner and participants will leave with a much better understanding of both their current limitations, strengths and potential along with very useful information that can greatly improve their odds at surviving a threatening encounter if not avoiding it all together.

What will you actually be doing?
Participants will learn essential strikes, close quarter positioning, escapes, and tactics as well as how to deal with being grounded and getting back to your feet. Our mission is to provide information and real world functional training that will assist women to better protect themselves and their children.

Who are the instructors? This ISR Matrix CAT clinic will be taught by its creator, Luis Gutierrez along with local Police and Military veterans who are certified ISR Matrix Instructors.
