Statement of Understanding – Training with Strategos InternationalIn order to ensure high-quality and meaningful training to all those attendingStrategos International courses, please review and carefully considereach statement below prior to registration.Please InitialEach SectionStrategos International was founded out of a strong desire to provideextremely realistic combative training as relates to law enforcement situationsand military close quarter combat engagements.Our courses are not administrative in nature; they are specifically designedto place individuals and teams under the type of duress that closely simulatesthe stress of real-world engagements.___________We believe that the demands operating in reduced illumination environments,and the realities of an active-shooter situation, require a similarly demandingtraining curriculum.Our courses are for serious operators, not those wishing to simply check thebox for another certificate.Our courses are designed to impart a genuine capability to those whointend on bringing the data, concepts, tactics and training methodologies backto their respective departments.___________Based on this foundation, training as delivered through Strategos Internationalis physically, mentally and emotionally challenging. The Force-on-Forcetraining is often painful, but not permanently damaging to the body.___________Due to the tremendous volume of information and practical exercises, drills,and scenarios, Five-Day courses that include rigorous Force-on-Force willtypically be 10-11 hours in duration.___________This is not a physical fitness course per se, but it is highly recommendedthat you work on your flexibility, body-weight to strength ratio, and havereasonable cardiovascular fitness before participating in this type of training.We believe this is sound doctrine for anyone who carries firearmsprofessionally. Those that are obese will have constant difficulties during theentire training course.


Five-Day Courses will include 6-10 hours of hands-on PCR work typicallyidentified as Defensive Tactics. This combative work will not necessarilyonly be defensive in nature (i.e. Active Shooter Scenario).Trainees will be drilled in following:____________- Getting up and down properly using correct Skeletal Alignment.- Proper Movement across terrain- Bilateral Mechanics- Weapons Retention and Removal- Redirections- Proper Take-Downs & Pins- Working from the Ground if requiredThis block of training is designed to show the trainee new ways of problemsolving, create a close interaction with fellow students, illustrate the principlesof combat, provide principle-based and technically sound solutions tocommonly faced attacks.____________Those attending training should arrive on Monday morning mentally preparedto receive new concepts. They should be prepared to give them a fairevaluation and demonstrate a strong spirit to apply them during the practicaltraining blocks.____________Strategos International staff members and those students attending ourcourses would rather you decline this training opportunity if you are notFULLY prepared to work EXTREMELY HARD during training. Our trainingstaff has already made this commitment to those who are spending the time,money, and effort to improve their tactical capabilities.Strategos International staff members are required to maintain a “showyou” capability; nothing required of the students will fall outside of thefollowing sequence:- Tell You – Show You - Allow You – Evaluate Performance – Repeat -____________We employ multimedia, handouts, note taking sheets, video review, practicaldrills, scenarios and full-mission profiles to expose you to maximize yourtraining experience.Staff members fully participate in role-playing as officers, suspects, &combatants.Staff members serve as instructors, mentors, and will always strive tomaintain a teachable attitude.Printed Name: _______________________________Signed: ____________________________________ Date: ___________________________
