Royce Gracie defensive tactics seminar for police/military
G.R.A.C.I.E™ is the defensive tactics and weapons retention course created by the legendary Royce Gracie, 3-Time Ultimate Fighting Champion. Royce earned his title by defeating his opponents using Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, proving the effectiveness of leverage and technique over strength and size. Royce has incorporated these defensive tactics into a comprehensive training course specifically designed for law enforcement. Like many skills, defensive tactics are perishable, therefore the G.R.A.C.I.E™ program teaches simple and automatic, rapid yet smooth actions. The G.R.A.C.I.E™ program is the “only” defensive tactics program that truly prepares officers to properly defend their weapons in any and all altercations.
Many Defensive Tactics Programs available today are ineffective and officers resort to using brute strength and sheer will power to overcome a suspect/criminal, resulting in potential loss of weapon or serious injury to an officer. Technique is emphasized instead of strength. “ALL” officers can accomplish this no matter size, strength or gender. Automatic rapid response needs to be made in an altercation. Offensive vs. defensive mindset is emphasized before, during and after the altercation.
