ABOUT THE GUARDIAN ANGELS DEFENSIVE TACTICS SYSTEM
The Guardian Angels Defensive Tactics System is a version of the Raven Tactical International Law Enforcement Defensive Tactics Program. It is a comprehensive Defensive Tactics Program offering officers a functional foundation in a variety of related defensive skills. The program has been developed by certified Defensive Tactics Instructor Fernan Vargas. Mr. Vargas has trained Police and Security officers at the local, state, and federal level. Modules of the course have been P.O.S.T. Certified in several states and have also been adopted by various agencies, such as the Pentagon Force Protection Agency. We feel confident that we are offering one of the most practical and easiest to learn and implement programs in the field. The program has been pressure tested in heavy scenario training and gone through several revisions based on the material’s effectiveness under stressful, live scenario testing. The program is meant to give new recruits a firm foundation in the mental, psychological and physical skills needed to properly protect themselves from a violent offender. The program is designed to be simple, adaptable, and easy to recall and use under stressful situations. Chapter trainers will find the program useful as it will give the patrol members a good sound foundation on which to build with advanced training. Experienced patrol members will also benefit from the program as it will help them to reinforce good sound “Survival Fundamentals”.
