Westchester County, NY (PRWEB) August 31, 2012
On September 26th, Westchester & Orange County Based Krav Maga New York will host a one-day law enforcement only tactical segment at Westchester’s Police Training Academy in Valhalla NY. Police agency representatives and defensive tactics (DT) instructors from the tri-state area are scheduled to train in - and evaluate - Krav Maga defenses against edged weapons.
Krav Maga has received international recognition as a highly practical police training system well suited for Law Enforcement. Originally developed for the Israeli Defense Force (IDF), Krav Maga deals with scenarios where operators face life-threatening situations while unarmed or when higher force options can't be accessed - and when losing is not an option. From these positions of disadvantage, operators must respond with sound, fast, aggressive techniques until help arrives or until higher force options can be acquired.
Krav Maga police training methods and tactics are designed to improve an officer’s emotional and physical response to danger, to recognize threats at the earliest possible stage, to react without hesitation, and to escalate and de-escalate force appropriately.
Perhaps most important of all, Krav Maga based police training methods build officer command presence in a comparatively short training period.
Krav Maga NY’s I Am + 1 Force Training Team regularly provides hand-to-hand defensive segments for Westchester’s Police Training Academy, for the Paladin Center - a continuing education venue in Putnam County specializing in public safety and tactical defense training – and for both the New York Tactical Officers Association and the New York Association of Hostage Negotiators. Krav Maga NY is also scheduled to make its debut at the TacOps Training Conference next year.
Recently asked about Krav Maga NY’s involvement with police training, Force Training Instructor Davide G. stated, “Since 2005, we’ve trained dozens of agencies and special teams and hundreds officers. These guys put their life line for us. We’d train police any place, any time, holidays, weekends, day or night… it’s an honor"
