CJ 249 Intermediate Defensive Tactics-Criminal Justice • 3 Cr.
Continues CJ 244 (prev ADMCJ 244), with further development of basic arrest-and-control and self-defense skills. Students also learn the use of the straight baton and OC spray. Same as PE 249. Either CJ 249 or PE 249 may be taken for credit, not both.
After completing this class, students should be able to:
- Students will be able to describe the Continuum of Force and the Continuum of Resistance. Additionally they will be able to articulate where on the Continuum of Force each technique falls and will be able to use the Continuum of Resistance to justify each application of the techniques contained in the system.
- Students will enhance their ability to articulate the different levels of both the Continuum of Force and the Continuum of Resistance. The student will further develop an intellectual understanding of what Level One Arrest & Control Tactics are and how they fit on the Continuum of Force and Continuum of Resistance.
- Students will learn to verbally describe and physically demonstrate on a partner the essential Principles of Balance and the Principles of Strength
- Students will be able to link control techniques together as required by the actions of a resistant subject. Additionally, the student will be able to effectively utilize empty hand techniques in concert with impact weapons techniques depending on the requirements of the confrontation of the moment.
- Students will use the "Dive Entry" to set up control techniques and takedowns both when initiating the action against a potentially aggressive subject and in response to attack by an aggressive subject.
- Students will develop the capability to utilize the "Five Basic Defensive Entries" to defend against strikes initiated by an attacker.
- Students will further extend their abilities to use the Principles of Strength and Balance to master a three step system for bringing a resistant subject under control on the ground. The students will enhance their ground technique with an understanding of intermediate grappling submission techniques use for law enforcement. Effective use of arm locks, head restraints, and close quarters impact techniques will also be learned.
- Students will develop an understanding of the Four Confrontational Ranges and will acquire the skill to utilize several possible impact techniques from each range. This will include the use of the straight baton and OC Spray to create a defensive system between empty hand and deadly force with firearms.
- Student will be able to demonstrate the use proper stroking technique with a straight baton including the Five Basic Angles of Attack
- Students will be able to utilize OC Spray techniques in concert with empty hand control and impact weapons to bring a subject under control. Students will further demonstrate their ability to transition between empty hand, OC Spray, and Impact weapons as confrontational parameters demand.
- Students will understand and demonstrate the non-impact use of the baton for escorts, pressure point application, and locking techniques for takedowns.
- The student will refine their ability to deliver powerful and effective impact techniques using the hands, elbows, knees, feet and impact weapons to a static target. Additionally, the student will be able to use these impact techniques in double or triple combination to increase their utility.
- Students will develop the ability to deliver impact techniques, with or without an impact weapon, as the attacker is attempting to strike them from any of the Five Angles of Attack.
- Students will cement their technical understanding by undergoing scenario based training with an instructor in protective armor. They will establish an understanding of real world application in a safe but challenging environment.
