Our DICTATE Program was originally developed for US Special Forces deploying to Bosnia-Herzegovina. They were looking for a simple skill set to deploy their weapons from a concealed position. As it grew to the Group level, unarmed combat, weapon defense and impact/edged weapon tactics were added to their ongoing training cycle.
It was developed by putting Vee Arnis Jujitsu into a crucible and teaching only what was easily learned, remembered under stress, and effective in its application.
As we continue to work with other members of the Special Operations community, for both the US and its allies, as well as law enforcement agencies internationally, the program is constantly reviewed to ensure it remains on the cutting edge. When improvements can be made, we make them. Nothing is written in stone. Practical application is all this program is about.
For those who live in the area, the DICTATE program is available on a continual basis. It is perfect for those who want immediate self-defense skills and have no interest in the traditions, uniforms, or the years long process of learning a martial art before they can realistically use it to defend themselves anywhere other than the dojo.
A constant focus on the concepts and goals, the program is based upon, gives the average person the ability to defend themselves quicker than any other program out there.
You don't have to be an "operator" to train and defend yourself like one. DICTATE TTC can offer you the opportunity to do just that.

Our program has been updated to reflect the new reality for CO law enforcement, created by CO 20-217. This program is designed to allow you to control all levels of subjects while keeping you physically, legally, and thus financially safe.
Most departments haven't even upgraded their arrest control tactics program to reflect this new reality. Some are even advocating techniques that are in direct conflict of the law. Unfortunately, that is now your problem.
DICTATE's Law Enforcement Class was re-designed immediately after the passing of the bill, pressure tested by one of the state's top tactical units, then implemented by them and others prior to any aspect of the bill taking effect. In other words, we are the cutting edge of arrest control tactics training.
But don't just take our word for it:
"Since adopting the "LBV" in our department, we have seen some serious incidents of them being used as a way for an assailant to control and cause harm to our officers. I contacted John Petrone, someone we had worked with before, to come up with a simple answer to this serious situation. I was not disappointed. By focusing on our goals and basic body mechanics, he was able to quickly develop tactics that addressed our concerns. He had us covered from frontal attacks and rear attacks, empty handed or with a weapon, in a matter of hours. They were simple enough to be able to learn, recall under stress, and transfer the information to our line officers in a very short period of time. He pressure-tested what he developed at combat speed, against much larger and stronger attackers, utilizing FIST protective gear. If your department has, or is planning on, adopting this type of equipment you need this training." -Troy B, Tactical Team Sergeant
