Security Training Programs

Arma Training’s security-training programs were developed by security professionals for security professionals — with an emphasis on how to deal with real-life physical confrontations in the various environments in which they operate.

Whether you are in a uniform or plain clothes, carrying or not carrying a weapon, there comes a time in every security professional’s life when they have to go from checking identification in a corporate setting — to springing into action to control a vital threat — to fighting for their life.

Preparing for these situations is where Dave Young’s programs excel.

Dave has worn many hats in his career from catching shoplifters in high risk areas of California, to honorably serving in the military, to being dually sworn as both a corrections and law enforcement officer in the state of Florida.

Dave applies both technical and tactical application to enable the security agent to work within their own physical limitations (we are not all 25 anymore and we are all not in the best physical or medical shape of our lives) and to operate within existing policy and procedure legal limitations.

For example, trainers who have never stood post to check identification, or had to approach a known threat with or without weapons or other force options, have a hard time understanding the tactics needed to work effectively in these potentially dangerous and life threatening environments and deal with the issues of force-on-force options.

Highlighting verbalization tactics, using gross-motor skill-based techniques that are easy to remember, and using the same technique for both standing and ground confrontations — that’s the key to a comprehensive defense training program for security professionals.

Using anatomically correct techniques is critically important to control subjects and patrons without bending, twisting and torturing the limbs in a way that could cause injury. Such control is achieved by applying techniques that require compression and positioning of the limb without reducing blood flow and circulation or affecting the breathing of a subject being controlled.

These techniques do not require the acceptance of pain to be effective – therefore we can explain in court that any injury was from the level of resistance and not from the application of a technique.
