empty hand force™

Our proprietary Mission Ready Defensive Tactics (MRDT) programs, Empty Hand force - 1 & 2 (EHF1 & EHF2) will provide your law enforcement officers with the necessary tools to safely and efficiently defeat active resistance.

EHF is easy to learn, easy to maintain, and it's comprised of stress-tested skills that offer a high probability for successful outcomes in the field. Additionally, we will provide you with the necessary support to maintain a high level of proficiency throughout your agency.

Beginning with the belief that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, EHF1 was designed to provide a team-oriented control and restraint system that offers safe and effective solutions to controlling active resistance when officers enjoy a numerical advantage. Moreover, it's designed to dramatically reduce the risk of injury to officers and arrestees during these critical interactions

Conversely, our officer self-protection modules contained in EHF2 offer battle-tested skills designed to keep your officer alive in those instances when physical violence is imminent, and officer safety is threatened.

These combined strategies are certain to elevate any officer's competency in a variety of volatile situations.

Our systems are rooted in the belief that the unprepared officer is a liability to himself and his agency.

At 5x5 Mission Ready, we've made it our goal to properly prepare officers to nonviolently defeat active resistance.

By joining us you will be taking a significant first step toward enabling your personnel to perform at an extremely elevated level of proficiency.

We eagerly look forward to working with you.
