"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."

"All of the concepts taught at the training can be utilized on the job immediately. Instructors are very knowledgeable and professional and have the background to know what will work in an LEO environment."

"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."

The training is top notch. Great technique and is taught at a high level in a very easy way to understand and follow. Excellent instruction.
A. Rosales
It is worth the time and money investment for all LEOs.
C. Golv
Drastic change from standard DT curriculums which focus an step by step techniques that only work in perfect situations. I appreciate the fact that EFC is focused on creating problem solvers not step followers.
D. Fladung
Applicable to law enforcement and will help reduce higher levels of force applied.

If you're an LEO you need to take this course it can and will save your life or the lives of others
