Course Summary

The TRICOM modules (TRI-ANGLE COMBATIVES) are the result of 34 years of martial arts experience coupled with 18 years of experience teaching police and military Defensive Tactics and Combatives programs. Based on tactics of Pekiti-Tirsia Kali and supplemented with various striking and grappling disciplines, the TRICOM modules have been taught to Special Operations and Instructors from police and military units across the US and allied countries. The goal of this course is not to avoid "martial arts" techniques, but to analyze what martial artists have learned from centuries of trial and error, and hand pick the methodology and principles that have the highest probability of success for the average law enforcement officer or soldier who is often neither a martial artist, nor has the opportunity to train on a regular basis. The Advanced Instructor course includes in-depth training in each sub-topic/ module addressed in the Fundamentals course. We also address some modules not included in the general Fundamentals course. This includes: Natural Impact Weapons Gross Motor Control Dynamics, Advanced Tactical Baton, Duty Knife as a Backup Weapon, Edged Weapon Countermeasures, Tactical Clinch (Clinch fighting in a weapons based environment), Ground S.E.R.E. (Survival, Evasion, Resistance and Escape), Close Quarters Handgun Combatives. The instructor for this course, Jared Wihongi, world renowned Close Quarters Combat Instructor. He is a student of multiple martial arts and combatives systems, but specializes in the edged/impact weapon based combat arts of the Philippines. He has 19 years of experience in law enforcement (both full-time and Reserve), 16 of which has been working on SWAT Teams and as a Use-of-Force Instructor.
