Controlled F.O.R.C.E. Weapon Retention Training


Controlled F.O.R.C.E. has been providing a low-liability method of defensive tactics and subject control training for the nation's Law Enforcement, Corrections, Security and Military sectors since incorporating in 1997. Our unique ability to develop training curriculums and standardizations that integrate into existing curriculum has time and again exceeded expectations.

The Controlled F.O.R.C.E. Mechanical Advantage Control Holds (M.A.C.H.) based system establishes a national standard of Close Range Subject Control (CRSC) training and has been adopted into doctrine, training curriculum, and use of force policy at all levels of law enforcement, corrections, security, and military.


Have a very safe and happy 4th of July from Controlled F.O.R.C.E.!!!
