Our Story

Advanced Defensive Tactics has been providing training and courses on self defence, self protection and defensive tactics for over 15 years.

It was developed in conjunction and support of Russell Stutely from OCFM and CSM Paul Mracek as an effective defensive tactics program.

In addition KJM Geoff Hutchinson 9th Dan Black Belt from Nutaofit Martial Arts Academy provided his extensive knowledge and experience from the needs of the security and personal protection industry.

This system was implemented into the requirements for open hand defensive tactics in the Security Industry in 2011 and had thousands of officers trained in the use of this practical and effective system.
