http://www.GracieUniversity.com/GST --- An encounter between a military/law enforcement professional and suspect is vastly different from a street fight or a sport jiu-jitsu match. Yet, some Combatives/Defensive Tactics programs make no distinction. Gracie Survival Tactics (GST) is the Gracie Academy's specialized Combatives/Defensive Tactics program for military and law enforcement professional, and it is the fastest growing Combatives/Defensive Tactics program in the world because it is the only "jiu-jitsu based" program that is 100% law enforcement applicable that has also been proven in actual combat by US military troops around the globe. Now, for the first time ever, the complete GST program is available online for active duty military and law enforcement professionals around the world with proper credentials. In this video, Ryron and Rener show you what makes the GST course so unique.
The GST Advantage
Unlike other Defensive Tactics programs, which rely on a certain degree of compliance from the bad guy, the GST program is designed exclusively for worst-case scenarios. GST has been developed and refined over the last 17 years on these three "truths:"

1) The bad guy always has the ambush advantage.
In a real fight, there is no referee to start or to stop the fight when you are getting assaulted. Only the bad guy knows when and how he will attack. Any time you are close enough to conduct a pat-down, or to exchange documents, you are close enough to be ambushed. In the GST program, we teach simple and effective sudden assault defense strategies that enable you to neutralize the threat and achieve a position of advantage while minimizing injury to yourself and the bad guy.

2) Never grapple with the bad guy/enemy by choice.
As a military or law enforcement professional, the public doesn't pay you to fight fairly. If you enter into a "grappling match" with the bad guy, you put yourself in great danger since the bad guy could take your weapons and use them against you. If, however, the fight goes to the ground against your will, you must know what to do. In the GST program, we teach time-tested escape techniques that can be used to get you off the ground and back to your feet so that you can establish distance and utilize the appropriate force option to neutralize the threat. GST also features a series of leverage-based weapon retention principles you can apply in any grappling scenario to keep your weapons secure until you have the opportunity to disengage from the ground fight. Our philosophy is simple: Learn how to grapple, so you don't have to.

3) In a street fight, there is no "tap-out."
In sportive jiu-jitsu practice, the tap-out matters; in a fight for your life against an aggressive subject, it doesn't. For military and law enforcement professionals, we understand that victory isn't achieved until you neutralize the threat and apprehended the bad guy. In the GST program we have devised a series of simple, yet reliable, handcuffing procedures you can use from virtually every position in the fight, and the techniques are applicable to both solo and partner arrests.

Tactical Gear Tested
We have tested every technique in the Gracie Survival Tactics course in body armor and a duty belt. In fact, we have included the full tactical gear demo for all 23 lessons (67 individual techniques) in the GST online video course.

Reduced Liability
One allegation of excessive force can undermine a law enforcement organization's authority and jeopardize its relationship with the community they serve. This can also be applicable to a military unit in urban terrain. The GST course relies only on control techniques so there is a reduced chance of harming a bad guy.

Educated "Bad Guys"
MMA is the fastest growing sport in the world, and general public's knowledge on basic fighting strategies and techniques has never been so high. There is a very real risk that a military or law enforcement professional will encounter a suspect with some form of martial arts training. We designed the GST program to give any military or law enforcement professional -- regardless of age, gender or athletic ability -- the skills to: 1) Neutralize the threat, 2) Retain control of their weapons, and 3) Achieve a position of advantage so they can utilize appropriate force.

Remember, while you are reading this, the enemy is training.
