|"……full of practical real world
combative applications for
those who work in Law
Enforcement or security
roles……some of the most
effective I have seen to defend
yourself and gain the upper
hand in a combative situation
without resorting to potentially
lethal striking …… usable in a
use of force continuum and
actually work unlike many
moves I have seen people
attempt to utilize. Rob, Crowd
|"I would strongly recommend
this course to anyone within
the security and law
enforcement community, as
well as anyone who wants to
learn a simple defending
themselves. I will definitely be
attending any future
seminars" Steven, Security
|"Having trained for 25 years
now, during which time I've
trained in a number of different
styles and systems, I have to
say this was the best course
I've seen of it's type. I haven't
just come away with new
material to play with, but it
taught me a great deal about
effective coaching and I believe
as a result my own coaching
and teaching has improved
I highly recommend this
course to anybody (whether
Martial Artist or untrained) with
an interest in simple, functional
self defence." Ash, MMA Coach
|" I attended the first ISR course
in Sydney in 2008 and recently
attended the ISR course in late
November in Canberra and I
found that even after around a
year, I was still able to execute
the training under pressure.
Thanks again to Dave and the
ISR team" - Ron
"Vastly superior to any
contemporary Police DT / OST
package in use in Australia
today...... Australian Police
organisations are performing a
disservice to their staff, and the
community they are expected to
serve, by not implementing ISR"
Editor, Response Australia
"The fundamental principles are
drilled to the point where you no
longer have to think, your body
just does what it needs to do.
The core principles of ISR are
so interchangeable, the system
allows you to move from one
position to the next without
pause, feeling what your
opponent is doing rather than
having to watch for it. We were
able to work through
complicated role related
problems, such as removal of
persons from vehicles, without
having to do anything other then
go back to core principles and
think it through" L, Police Officer

ISR Matrix Physical Management
The ISR Matrix Physical Management (PM) branch is centered in Subject Control. It is designed for licensed
civilian and employed security personnel working in environments that require hands on subject control,
restraint, and transportation such as executive protection, security personnel, paramedics, elderly and health
care workers, hospital orderlies, and doormen but is not limited to those professions. From individual to team
tactics, the system is designed to directly address the specific needs of the security guard, team, institution or
business requiring the training. Each and every ISRPM seminar and course beyond the ISR Subject Control Core is
designed specifically to meet the needs of our host or client.
The ISR Matrix Physical Management Subject Control Core 40 hours is the foundation and core of the entire ISR
Matrix system and mandatory for any progression into the ISR Matrix’s further study and training. Those wishing
to train in any other aspect of the ISR from its specific modular programs and components to exploring entire
branches of its civilian, law enforcement or military branches must comply with this initial line of training and
successfully pass its required marks in performance and conceptual/ strategic understanding.
To host an ISRPM seminar or course in your area please contact us at: email@example.com
Personal Protection & Self Defense
The ISR Matrix Physical Management (PM) also offers civilians two complete stand-alone strategic and
tactical systems to offer personal protection and self-defense when verbal management of a situation has
broken down and an assault is imminent. Available to everyone in good standing, these two programs are
naturally extensions of our Subject Control emphasis but are by their very nature built entirely around survival
and preservation when the ability to control a situation has broken down or the risk involved in attempting further
control are no longer optimal or valid.
Women’s C.A.T. (Counter Assault Tactics) – This is a woman specific personal protection and self-
defense system created initially for female and smaller officers and agents working in some of the most
dangerous environments in the world. With a strategic emphasis on escape and evasion and a tactical
methodology on creating as much pain and damage while doing so, the C.A.T. system has been modified to suit
the modern day woman seeking out to be as fit as she is safe. The complete system is designed to take a few
years to master but can be trained immediately and tailored specifically to an individual’s specific needs and
concerns. Classes, seminars, courses, private and semi-private instruction are available.
CLUTCH Fighting /CQB – This is the ISR Matrix’s fundamental program to instruct everything from hand to
hand to less than lethal tools to lethal ones and back and covers the root training methods and tactics that
served as the initial source for most of our special teams work with the Armed Forces and Undercover Agent
working in some of the most hostile environments in the Middle East, Caribbean, Central & South America.
Designed to cover everything from personal protection to defending one’s loved ones, property and homestead,
the system generally takes years to master but is available in incrementally progressive modular parts that
individuals can customize to fit their needs and concerns.

systems, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
ISR Matrix Law Enforcement Courses(restricted enrolment)
Law Enforcement / Police Defensive Tactics
The ISR Matrix Law Enforcement (LE) is designed for the patrol officer as a complete defensive tactics system
(hand to hand as well as less than lethal and lethal tools) that can easily be readily integrated with existing S.O.P.
and use of force continuums as required. From officer presence, on through to the use of deadly force, the ISR
Matrix grants officers the adaptability to escalate and de-escalate in direct proportion to subject’s resistance
levels and overcome resistance within their legal frame of reference as peace officer.
Initial ISR Matrix LE courses address core subject control. Typically an initial LE course is conducted as a 5 day
end user courses comprising 60% Subject Control and 40% LE specific material.
Subsequent LE training is typically taught within our 3 fundamental courses that build upon one another and are
broken down into initial, intermediate and advanced levels. Control Tactics 1-3, Ground Tactics 1-3 and Weapon
Control tactics 1-3. Further training within the ISR-LE branch is in the form of modular seminars and courses that
are typically referenced and briefly shown throughout all training sessions and often cross over in to the ISR-AF
branch due to the work with Special Response Teams/SWAT/Police Tactical Groups.
To host an ISR- LE course or seminar in your area or to book training with the ISR-LE please contact us at
