DEFENSIVE TECHNIQUES WORKSHOP at Chute Boxe Academy.
Our way to give back to our community is to support our Brothers in Blue with our once a month Law Enforcement workshop.
FREE DEFENSIVE TECHNIQUES WORKSHOP.
“I taught this extremely beneficial Ground Survival & Striking Tactics class in Brazil, Europe and USA for many years. And now I am so proud and humbled for the opportunity to give back to the men and women of our law enforcement community. Also the chance of sharing in a multiple agency type training is a great opportunity. All Police Officers have to be fight fit and ready for a physical confrontation. It can save the police officers life and avoid a bad shooting. This Defense Techniques Workshop will enhance the skills and techniques already acquired throughout your Law Enforcement regular training. The objective of this workshop is to keep the members of your team safe and improve their confidence when the tools on their belts are rendered useless. I can guarantee that learning just one small detail from our training can save you a whole lot of trouble; possibly a life.” – Andre Quiles
It doesn’t matter what your current skill level is, when it comes to “surviving”, we all have room for improvement. The fact of the matter is that law enforcement officers don’t get anywhere near the amount of training they should to do their jobs defending their lives and the lives of the people in our communities. There are many reasons for this: time, money, range resources to name a few. But these are just excuses for not taking training into our own hands.
Let’s be honest, if we knew we were heading into a gunfight at some point soon, we would work our tails off to improve our skills before that life-or-death battle. Unfortunately, many of us suffer from an optimism bias when it comes to someone threatening our lives. Optimism bias is the belief that things will work out just fine on an individual level and that bad things only happen to other people. Even when officers are being assaulted and killed at record rates, many of us believe it won’t happen to us.
The problem is it can happen to us at any time, any place and under any conditions. Will you be ready to answer that call? Your spouse, children, mothers, fathers, sisters, and brothers want you to return home safe after every shift. Andre Quiles classes can help improve your skills so you can prevail on the street and return home safely to the most important people in your life.
Training is not a huge time commitment, but you will see big improvements in your skills and mindset. Are you ready? Let’s get to work!
Besides our regular classes Professor Andre Quiles will be providing instruction during The Defense Techniques Workshop. Mr. Quiles, a native Brazilian and world-class fighter, has won multiple world titles and has taught numerous Law Enforcement and Special Forces Seminars during his 30-year career. We will be having guest Law Enforcement Instructors from other agencies to provide a vast variety of training and additional defensive techniques.
The classes will be for Law Enforcement only! (Local, State and Federal)
The free classes will be offered once a month. Most of Departments surprisingly do it only twice a year! If interested in participating, please e-mail Andre at firstname.lastname@example.org. Once you are on our mailing list, you will receive updates and all new information regarding this program.
Muay Thai will be used as our stand-up defense. The goal of a Law Enforcement Officer is to stay on their feet and for that reason it is fundamentally important to learn how to safely strike when needed. There is no better striking martial art than Muay Thai, specifically when adapted for your training.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu will be used as our grappling defense. Our goal is to not go to the ground, but as we all know sometimes that is not possible. Students will be taught how to control individuals and how to get out of tough situations..
Here are some of the things that we will be covering:
- DISTANCE MANAGEMENT
- STRIKING AND DEFENSES
- TAKE DOWNS
- WEAPON RETENTION
- GRAPPLING CONTROL
- ESCAPING FROM DANGEROUS POSITIONS ON THE GROUND
