Our training concepts.

We offer training in tactical concepts, courses, training and further training for police and security authorities, the military, security personnel, companies and others.

In addition to our focus on application-oriented training, we also offer lectures and classes. This ranges from anti-terror relevant topics for companies and critical infrastructure, first responder training for institutions and police authorities, protection of vulnerable facilities to travel security and anti-kidnapping for families and companies.

Our focus is on concepts for conflicts in the absolute close range between 0-5 meters.

One concept - all weapons and resources:

90% of all conflict encounters (including those involving firearms) take place at distances below 5m, most even below 1m. Most traditional approaches fail at this distance. This applies to all operations in urban areas, built-up areas in rooms and means of transport. This is easy to understand from a police perspective, but it is also a fact of life in the military, due to modern operational situations. ZERO TO FIVE (0-5) is a truly complete system that covers all means of deployment and weapon systems in a seamless concept. The system is easy to learn, can be integrated into existing applications and is very stress-resistant and versatile in use.

The training courses can be designed flexibly according to customer requirements, but we also offer ready-made modules, for example:

Extreme Close Quarter Shooting (ECQ-Shooting)

A large proportion of professional firearms use takes place at distances of well under 5m. Conventional shooting concepts are not sufficient here.

In this training course, we work on the special features of using firearms at extremely close range.

Among other things, we will cover

  • Overview of the problems
  • Disadvantages of conventional concepts
  • Stance
  • Adapted drawing process at extreme close range
  • Adapted shooting positions at close range
  • Retention position
  • Interface firearm to other weapons and empty hands
  • Special case of firearm against blades
  • Firearm use in ground combat
  • Disarming
  • Adapted disarming for the close range
  • Firing under the influence of the opponent

Tactical Knife

In extreme situations, having your own knife can be a lifesaver. In situations where firing a shot is not possible, where your own weapon must be protected, where access to resources is thwarted, in confined spaces, on the ground, where third parties are endangered,…

Blades can solve life-threatening problems relatively easily and, above all, immediately. Far removed from Hollywood clichés, in this unit we train the appropriate, legally clean and effective use of blades for self-protection.

Among other things, we will cover

  • Suitable types of blades
  • Carrying methods
  • Drawing procedures under stress
  • Defense against attacks with your own blade
  • Blade use and the actual mode of action
  • Follow-up techniques
  • Interface/transitions to other weapon systems and means of deployment

Edged Weapon Awareness

Blades, cutting and stabbing weapons are particularly dangerous at extremely close range. The use of firearms alone does not lead to successful defense. This training is about a critical/realistic assessment of the danger and the available options. As part of an overall concept, we train ways to create a time window for drawing the firearm and the use of the weapon specifically against bladed attackers. We also develop realistic options for emergency disarming and integrated use of force. The training includes a theoretical presentation on the dangers, injury patterns and effects of attacks with stabbing and cutting weapons.

Among other things, we cover

  • Dangerousness of the attack weapons
  • Overview of classic defenses, their advantages and disadvantages
  • Drawing the weapon in contact with the opponent
  • Drawing at close distances
  • Initial defense of the blade
  • Control and management of the attacker
  • Emergency disarming
  • Firing at extreme close range
  • Team work
  • Initial self-sufficiency

Tactical Baton

The baton has changed in its role as an operational tool. Based on the classic American telescopic baton training, too many problems arise during deployment.

In this training course, we develop new solutions and concepts for using the baton effectively and in a modern way.

Among other things, these topics will be covered:

  • Carrying open and concealed
  • Draws with and without the other person’s influence
  • Weapon retention
  • Transitions
  • Interface to other means of deployment and weapon systems
  • Drawing and opening under stress
  • Strike mechanics
  • Use of the closed baton at short distances
  • Effective use of the open baton at short range
  • Concealed use
  • Effective takedowns with the stick
  • Use of the stick in ground fighting
  • The problem of stick versus blade

Mission-related takedown concepts

The opponent often has to be brought to the ground. Realistically, most of the techniques taught only work in training or with physically inferior opponents.

However, there are actually concepts that make it possible to reliably take the opponent to the ground in action. This requires an understanding of the effect of the techniques used and how to break away from individual techniques.

In this training course, we will examine effective strategies and develop a system of effective take-downs.

Among other things, we will cover

  • Realistic consideration of underlying principles
  • Simple system for takedowns in action
  • Takedowns without the means of application
  • Takedowns with stakes
  • Takedowns in a team
