ZANSHIN TACTICAL TRAINING
PRACTICAL STRATEGIES FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES
The martial art of Aikido provides advanced solutions for law enforcement because of the following areas of development:
RECONCILIATION OF CONFLICT IS CENTRAL
CAUSING NO INJURY TO OPPONENT
PROPORTIONATE USE OF FORCE DURING AN ATTACK
INCREASED SITUATIONAL AWARENESS
DEALING WITH MULTIPLE ATTACKERS SIMULTANEOUSLY
LEVERAGE, PHYSICS AND BALANCE NEGATE STRENGTH
TECHNIQUES TO MINIMIZE FIGHT OR FLIGHT
Scientific studies involving law enforcement operations show that once the body's stress response has been triggered, proficiency in marksmanship, situational awareness, perception, learned information, stored memories and de-escalation techniques are all severely diminished.
It doesn't matter how much you KNOW;
It's how effectively you ACCESS what you know.
Zanshin Tactical Training teaches:
Specific breathing patterns to enable maximum performance, perception and control under duress. We teach multiple ways to monitor and control the parasympathetic nervous system to maintain chemical / hormonal homeostatic balance.
Basic and efficient methods of footwork for faster movement and improved stability. Our basis for mobility is universal in regard to age, experience of fitness level. We also teach how to safely fall or roll to avoid injury and quickly return to your feet if loss of balance occurs.
Application of specific cognitive approaches for control and improved physiological states. This increases awareness when situations start to deteriorate and allows better creativity in problem solving.
Our philosophy is based on reconciliation of an adverse situation seeking resolution without physical harm.
'Zanshin' translated means "remaining mind...or vigilant awareness".
Group and individual training available.
