Every day, brave men and women put their lives on the line to help keep communities safe. It is essential for these first responders and safety personnel to be aware of their surroundings to be prepared to take and maintain control in any crisis. To do this, they need the training, resources, and techniques necessary to keep people, and themselves, safe.
Controlled F.O.R.C.E.’s training teams are comprised of some of the most experienced training instructors in the Nation. M.A.C.H.™ 5.0 technique courses instill in our clients the knowledge, skills, and ability needed to operate with control, confidence, and preparation for any contingency.
What is M.A.C.H. 5.0?
Controlled F.O.R.C.E. is the developer and sole source provider of the Mechanical Advantage Control Holds (M.A.C.H. 5.0) system. The system uses positioning, movement, body momentum, and resistance to gain and maintain control of any situation.
M.A.C.H. 5.0 is the foundation of the training system and can be implemented into any current defensive tactics program. The system is easily taught, utilized, and retained among our trainees. Our Controlled F.O.R.C.E. courses are designed to develop skill sets needed to perform real-life duties with control and confidence.
M.A.C.H. 5.0 Training Courses
Our Training System holds P.O.S.T. State approval or an equivalent in 27 states. We have trained in over 47 states domestically as well as internationally.
The intent of this training program is to better equip first responders with the tools and skills needed to assess and manage any situation they are faced with. M.A.C.H. 5.0 tactics significantly reduce the risk of injury to officers and the subjects they encounter, reducing liability and worker compensation costs.
“This course was the best professional development and training I have ever had in my military or civilian career,” said a student from the Lackland Naval Base. Here’s what our Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3 courses cover:
Teaches personnel how to control a non-compliant subject utilizing body positioning, movement, momentum, and transitions. The system is based on five Mechanical Advantage Control Holds (M.A.C.H.™) that use a subject’s resistance against themselves. These five techniques can be applied in any order, allowing for adjustments to the unpredictable actions of a subject. The course covers:
- Body Positioning Drills
- M.A.C.H.™ Takedowns
- M.A.C.H.™ Handcuff Positioning
- M.A.C.H.™ Team Arrest Tactics
- M.A.C.H.™ Baton Subject Control
Teaches personnel how to survive a surprise attack and then transition to control tactics. The system builds upon the basic principles of body movement and positioning learned in the level 1 course.
Designed to flow between M.A.C.H. and Reactionary Defense Training; then back again as the use of force requirements escalate and de-escalate throughout any given situation.
