Arrest and control tactics for protection professionals

PPCT Registration

"Dave is an absolute master of self defense. I took his PPCT course and attended some Krav Maga classes. Let just say that the 5 day course was an absolute pleasure. It exceeded the standards for PPCT and also gave you very real, usable techniques on how to protect yourself. Dave is a student (himself) where he let's you have a voice. He gives very practical and useful skills to deal with any situation that you may come across. My only regret is that I was not able to continue to learn and go to more classes. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to learn a self defense. Or wants to improve what they already know."
