Mechanical Advantage Control Holds (MACH)


 This technique is established as a national standard of subject control and defensive tactics that has been adopted into training curriculum and use of force policy at all levels of military, law enforcement, and security. MACH holds are a series of five techniques that is designed to work using positioning, joint manipulation, leverage and the subject’s momentum against them; this allows for the relative differences in officer size and strength versus a subject’s size and strength.  The course begins with ensuring proper safety procedures are in place, and focus on Close Range Subject Control (CRSC) techniques as subject control and personal safety, and NOT specific hand or body placement.  This class is an excellent foundation for less than lethal methods of control. MACH includes same techniques with baton.
