ISR Matrix Headquarters is looking to build a strong local training center for civilian professionals looking to learn and train with like minded peers interested in personal protection and self-defense.

This introductory course will focus on the essentials of our core system and its dynamic transitions from hand to hand defense to less than lethal tools as well as the proper and efficient deployment of lethal force when legally and morally warranted.

Ideal for those looking for a tested, vetted and proven approach to real world protection without having to piece it all together for themselves from the endless and varied points of view of martial artists, combat athletes, “reality based brawlers” and the many conflicting perspectives of the ever expanding firearms and tactical community.

All sessions are taught by certified members of the highly regarded ISR Matrix Instructor and Training Cadre which consists exclusively of experienced Law Enforcement Officers, Federal Agents and Military Special Forces veterans. 

Training Requirements: Participants should wear comfortable clothing (gym clothing is fine). Wrestling shoes are recommended but not required.

Training Hours: 9am to 4:30pm

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.

Topics to be covered and trained:
1. Off the X (Interviews/ Probes – Set Ups & Sucker Punches)
2. Striking and Entries/ Intercepts to tie ups and the clinch.
3. Clinch with Cloth (Attached Striking & Takedowns)
4. Ground Fighting
5. The sap & knife for personal protection.
