Violence Dynamics Seminar 2012

Hey everybody!  It's been far too long since I've updated the blog.  I won't make excuses that's just how it is.  However, I have been working hard to set up the 2012 Violence Dynamics Seminar with Marc MacYoung and Rory Miller.  The logistics just got hashed out this morning so now I can post the details

Those are last year's dates, but I just like that picture of me kneeling on that guy's head

Class Descriptions;
I'm not trying to be secretive labeling the classes Rory stuff, Marc stuff it's just that the classes at the Dojo are subject to change.  Also I doesn't matter what I list the class as those guys just teach what they want anyways.

However, the Law Enforcement classes will follow this format

Violence Dynamics

Conflict Communications

Conflict Communication Improves understanding of violence, and interpersonal communications.
Increases verbal skills and helps to make use of force less necessary (lessens the need)
If you're emotional and caught up in the default human conflict behaviors, the best de-escalation training in the world (Verbal Judo, C.I.T., etc) is of no use to you. You're not going to be able to do it.
The essential message of Conflict Communications is –

De-escalation starts with You

The goal of Conflict Communications is to teach you how to prevent conflict whenever possible and to minimize its impact when it is unavoidable.
Most conflicts can be successfully controlled by using the principles of this system. This is not specialized education only a select few can master. The program is designed so anyone can use it to prevent a conflict. And we do this by teaching you to de-escalate yourself first.
Originally designed for law enforcement  to be used when confronting violent felons, the principles of this program also work in business, social and familial situations
By understanding how and why confrontation occurs, Conflict Communications will show you conflict management, de-escalation, situation resolution and, if necessary, articulation of why action was both necessary and reasonable.

Force Physics

To improve Officers’ ability to successfully apply their defensive tactics system by fixing the holes in movement that rob Officers of power

  • Officers will under stand the power chain
  • Officers will show proficiency at delivering effective force into a control subject
  • Officers will demonstrate increased efficiency by ending confrontations in three motions or less

Training Topics Include
    • Misconceptions about force
    • Recap of social and asocial violence
    • Social violence reaction patterns
    • Rooting
    • Triangle of power
      • Body movement
      • Structure
      • Range
    • Full weight transfer vs. lean
    • CoDPITT
    • Offense does NOT mean pain
    • Line of stance integrity
    • Twists and pulls
    • Gaffing vs. grabbing
    • Drives vs. impacts
    • You are NOT adrenaline’s punk
    • Muscle memory is a lie
o       Defensive/entering hand work
    • Defensive/entering handwork
    • Hard and soft take downs
    • Overcoming resistance
    • “Faith” in your tactics.
    • Effective movement doesn’t feel like fighting
    • Effective tactics do not rely on muscle, they relies on movement
Force physics is not a defensive tactics system or a “martial arts” style.
Force physics is a training method developed to enhance your ability to use the defensive tactics or martial arts system you are trained in more efficiently.

Increasing your competence, and confidence in your existing training.

Force physics will not only make you better at applying force to a resistive subject, but will help you understand the fundamental principles that make the application of force possible.
Force Physics will increase your ability to:
Articulate your use of force
Instruct others in the application of force
Repeatedly attempting to apply ineffective tactics on a resisting subject:
1) Creates hesitation to engage
2) Causes fear of committing WHEN engaged
3) Results in excessive use of force
Force physics enhances your ability to successfully use departmentally approved tactics against an actively resistive subject, increasing officer safety and decreasing use of force complaints

Use of Force Instructor Development

Violence happens by surprise - closer, harder, and faster than in most training. 
Instructor Development focuses applying your defensive tactics skills under those dynamic situations
Instructor Development Integrated is non-system specific training to adapt to emergency applications of force and be able to effectively train others in those skills
Instructor Development teaches:
  • How to choose, apply and justify an appropriate force response.
  • How to articulate your force response

Topics covered will include:
  • Context of violence
  • Efficient movement and evaluating efficiency
  • Violence Dynamics (Types of violence)
  • Use of force law
  • Improvised weapons training
  • Use of environment / terrain
  • Force Articulation
  • Action Debrief
  • Peer feed back / counseling
This training will improve the student’s ability to improvise effective joint locks, move a larger threat on the ground, and demonstrate effective weapon retention.

Instructor Development further develops conflict communication and the force physics skills.

I hope you can all join us
