This is not a standard
defensive tactics video where each compliance technique is demonstrated
on a stationary cooperative subject. In the real world an officer
will face hundreds of highly resistive and combative subjects. Many
times these subjects are already engaged in ongoing physical conflicts
when the officer arrives.
Many officers have quickly learned that police academies have not
properly prepared them to physically control highly resistive subjects.
Watch this 145 pound officer easily control even the most highly resistant
subjects with these street proven methods using what is considered
to be one of the best practical custody and control systems ever seen
The FACT System is not a standard custody and control system where
the officer learns compliance techniques on a "stationary cooperative
subject" as learned in police academies. Yet, the standardized
wristlocks used by officers all over the United States are the building
blocks of the FACT System making these new techniques easy for anyone
to learn and apply on the street.
Some of the "Fast Action Control Techniques" within this
video integrate nerve attacks, off balancing methods, and common compliance
techniques into one simple, street proven application.
The FACT video is very fast moving, detailed and fully chaptered for
easy repeated access to each technique. The "fast action demonstrations"
are designed to illustrate the relationship between perfect practice
and application in "real time" the way it actually happens
on the streets.
In addition to a being a 16 year police veteran in Massachusetts George
Vranos is also a certified police defensive tactics instructor, licensed
boxing coach, a field training officer, and a competitive grappler.
During Vranos' 16 year police career he closely studied and identified
the most common methods suspects instinctively use to resist or escape
standardized police compliance techniques during emotionally charged
situations. Vranos then researched, developed and tested hundreds
of applications to develop the FACT System.
