Russian Combat Tactics

Russian Combat Tactics™ is based on Systema Russian Martial Art and hand-to-hand combative skills taught by Russian Airborne Brigade. You are taught elite hand-to-hand fighting skills, including striking, strike absorption & pain compliance, offensive and defensive weaponry skills with a variety of weapons, including improvised & unconventional weapons, ground survival, including dive/roll/falling techniques, body movement, stealth techniques and escape, evasion & ambush tactics against individual and multiple attackers, strikes, confined spaces fighting, psychological & physiological training, including life-saving Russian Breathing/Healing work. All procedures are taught to take-down or finish to avoid negative “recall/autopilot” in actual situations.

This course was developed for professional contractors, law enforcement and military personnel to augment their current training regiment or act as their stand-alone training regiment, and is the basic foundation of all of our other courses. However, we offer a modified version for civilians that offers defensive, self-protection procedures. Professional or civilian, this course is an excellent instruction of elite battle-proven hand-to-hand close quarters combat fighting tactics.

Lethal finish tactics will only be taught to professional security contractors, law enforcement, and active military.

All firearm combat tactics include training with Airsoft equipment.

Corporate Defensive Tactics

After the September 11 attacks and the recent increase in workplace and school violence, employers and education institutions have made great strides in developing or improving workplace violence policies.

Unfortunately, even the best laid policy cannot protect you 100% of the time. There have been and will continue to be times when a person has to rely on their own survival skills.

That is where Polygon Elite’s Corporate Defensive Tactics can help. We augment any workplace or education violence policy by educating individuals on the best avoidance and escape strategies, and realistic defensive tactics when all of the above fails.

We have experience training professional “hot spot” security contractors, from Blackwater Worldwide to NYC Firemen. In addition to the workplace, the course focuses on specific business travel environments, such as airplane, automobile, train, etc.

We offer private, one-on-one instruction as well as affordable group instruction. We are available to train on-site* or at our location at Westside Riflle & Pistol Range, 20 West 20th Street, Basement, NYC between 5th & 6th Avenues.
