Jason Kelly Armed Self-Defense Tactics

The Armed Self-Defense Tactics course is taught by Jason Kelly, a multi-faceted Defensive Combatives Instructor with 25 years of training and 14 years of experience training and supporting law enforcement agencies, elite military units, and world class athletes including champion UFC fighters, and as a coach at the 2005 and 2006 Pan American Wrestling Championships.

Program is designed to teach combative skills in a weapons based environment (introduction of gun or knife). The material in the course teaches students high level, yet basic and easy to learn concepts, principles, theory and techniques. The course starts from ground zero, building the students in a step by step process, then as new or enhanced skills are developed students are put in scenarios to test application of new material in dynamic environments. These environments are based on common scenarios that catch people off guard in violent situations.

Fighting and shooting are rarely done at the same time in trainings, yet in reality they are happening at the same time. They say “life and death is in the gaps”, this course fills those gaps.

Enabling Objectives:

  • Understand and demonstrate qualities of good stance and position in adverse situations.
  • Learn high level close quarter controlling techniques
  • Acquire clear and unobstructed draw stroke of pistol and blade in close quarter scenario
  • Combine combative skills with weapon manipulation and integration.
  • Mindset and methodology

These skills are tested by time and in force on force scenarios.

We can duplicate situations and scenarios others have previously encountered, but not the future. Therefore, this course is designed to help students think and not just memorize moves.
