The foundation of MDTS is the escort position. Officers will learn several methods to move to a position of advantage and from there secure one of two escort positions. Students will learn how to handcuff compliant and non-compliant subjects and learn how to deflect an attack through instinctive one and two-hand blocking techniques. These defensive maneuvers are designed to neutralize the attack (not the attacker).
