"My first EFC course and I was extremely impressed and satisfied with the entire weekend. A lot of great information and knowledge shared during the course. Valuable information to carry over into the streets and utilize during my career. The instructors knowledge was incredible and they really focused on making sure skills were done correctly and gave feedback/ reinforcement on what you were doing and that it was done well."

"The price is often a small price to pay. The material packed into this 2-day course was definitely weeks worth of material and the one on one interactions with the instructors and individual training is unmatched. I learned so much in 2 days, versus what I learned in the academy regarding combatives. This is definitely a worthwhile course from some of the best instructors out there with real life LE experiences."

"Honestly, we thoroughly enjoyed the day and took many things away from this brief intro. Did exactly what I was hoping it would, open the eyes of my instructors and whet their appetite for more. We have been lacking a direction for our hands on program for a while. Already talked to [EFC] and I think I could sell the agency into hosting an instructor class and adapting the program agency wide... Jay was an amazing instructor, and I felt the guys really identified with him."
