Presenters: Joseph Hileman and Terry Choate, Jr., Blue-U Defense
This new MMA workshop, “Surviving the Life or Death Gap,” has been called “the best training in any topic” by former attendees. It also may be the most important. Presented by former police officers now running a company called Blue-U Defense, this session starts with building a necessary foundation and establishing a high level of understanding of what we face during an unplanned incident of violence, and how our natural reactions affect our ability to respond. There will also be a segment on recognizing signs of impairment. Attendees will learn to think differently and what is truly necessary to survive, win – and go home.
Who should attend: This session is aimed at municipal employees at all levels. Everyone, from elected officials to newly hired staff, should consider attending. Important note: This is NOT about police tactical response. It IS about general workplace safety.
