Defensive Tactics and Arrest

Our DEFTAC/ARREST course is one of the best and most effective self defense systems designed for Police Departments, Security Agencies and Government Agents.  The course is instructed by David Cunningham, a former LE Field Training Officer, and currently a 3rd degree blackbelt under Grand Master Chuck Norris, and an upper level Krav Maga instructor.  Mr. Cunningham has taught use of force and defensive tactics since 1991 in the state of Oregon.

At Stoneridge Tactical, we are aware of use-of-force and liability issues facing private and public law enforcement these days and we are constantly updating our program to provide efficient and effective response in the application of reasonable use of force in conformity with standard legal practices that will vary from department to department.


Our main focus is to keep your officers safe when they enter a situation whether the person is compliant or not. We also provide tactical skills to provide the officers the ability to respond quickly and effectively with the proper tools and utilize the correct use-of-force option under stress.

Our program is simple and to the point and consists of approximately 6 hours of intensive hands-on training.
