USDSA’s Instinctive Hand-to-Hand Combat Course

United States Deputy Sheriff's Association

This officer survival course is hands on and has been presented to city, county, state, and federal law enforcement officials across the country.  The course encompasses stand up combatives, control holds and takedowns, and ground survival. We cover ethics and use of force, from simply going hands on to an officer maintaining their weapon during a violent ground confrontation. If an officer is trained and comfortable with confrontation they are less likely to use excessive and/or improper force. It is a course which is mixed martial arts based, however geared toward officer survival as opposed to competition. This course is hands on and physical however students work at their skill level with the abilities and limitations they have.


The H2H program focuses on reality training including numerous training drills to enhance skills and develop muscle memory. Attendees are physically challenged but it is our goal they enjoy, not dread this type of training, so they will continue with it. This is a course which develops confidence and teamwork in those who attend.
