The versatility of COBRA Self-Defense – From Teaching Kids Anti Abduction Techniques to Training a S.W.A.T. Team.
The Richmond County S.W.A.T. Team recently reached out to C.O.B.R.A. for training. Robert Staton headed up the event using our Protection Specialist Curriculum.
Here is what the S.W.A.T. Commander said about the C.O.B.R.A. training his members received:
“I just wanted to thank you again for the unarmed self-defense training you provided to our team.
We encounter a multitude of situations that we train for each day requiring the use of all our equipment and various weapon systems, however, your hands-on teaching style allowed us to gain the knowledge and ability to face some of those day to day challenges without using anything but our hands.
Several of the guys on our team have already had the opportunity to use some the different techniques we learned during your class to avoid using an impact weapon or deadly weapon while taking someone into custody.
This not only prevented injury to the accused, but also to the officer. As you are well aware in society today, Law Enforcement Officers all over the US are under scrutiny for using excessive force, but by using the techniques we learned from you, it will allow us to resolve most situations both quickly and safely. Thanks again for sharing your knowledge and ability with us. Stay Safe.
