ASHTREE INTERNATIONAL consultants are qualified instructors from Monadnock Defence Training Council (MDTC). Monadnock® is an internationally known name in criminal justice education, through the Monadnock® Police Training Council.

Agency trainers from around the world teach Monadnock’s “Protect & Restrain” certification curricula in their respective agencies or assisting at other law enforcement departments. In our training, officers are taught how to stop a punch or kick using a PR-24® baton block.

Officers also learn how to effectively restrain (lock-up) a subject using the assistance of a PR-24® baton. Thus, handcuffing a subject’s wrists is quick and safe, standing or prone on the ground. Baton strikes are also taught.

We emphasize PR-24® blocking skills and PR-24® assisted restraint holds. The “Protect & Restrain Philosophy” is in all of our programs, including the Monadnock Expandable Baton (MEB) and Monadnock Defensive Tactics System (MDTS) Certification Curriculums.

We believe professional police standards and conduct are based on how much officers know and can do rather than on how little they know or can do as some might suggest. This is why “Protect & Restrain” continues to be our professional bottom line.

The Monadnock® Defensive Tactics System (MDTS) is a basic self-defense and subject control program designed for Security, Law Enforcement, Corrections, and Protective Services agencies. The focus of MDTS is to teach officers how to control and stabilise non-compliant subjects who are unarmed. MDTS is a general defensive tactics program.

This course combines lecture, discussion, demonstration, hands-on performance of techniques and testing in a concise and practical manner.MDTS is an integrative approach to dealing with a subject who is non-compliant and unarmed, but offering resistance to being arrested or who is trying to assault you, a criminal officer. The foundation of the MDTS is the escort position. The escort position is valuable to criminal justice personnel because of what they can do from it.

In other aspects of MDTS, officers learn how to handcuff compliant and non-compliant subjects, how to deflect an attack through instinctive one and two-hand blocking techniques.  These defensive maneuvers are designed to neutralise the attack (not the attacker).

MDTS is also a principle-based system that functions in three combat positions.  Those combat positions are standing, kneeling and on the ground, which is commonly called ground fighting.  MDTS is a proven, basic defensive tactics system that can be performed in most criminal justice environments where officers are on patrol or been dispatched, day or night, inside or outside; whether standing, kneeling or wrestling on the ground.
