Welcome to Team Hardy
Law Enforcement Ground Tactics Training
This course will create professional law enforcement coaches not instructors.
As a veteran police officer with twenty-one years on the force, I have been trained and instructed by many different people on a wide variety of topics over the years.
Most of the “instructors” and their material was forgettable to say the least and even fewer left a lasting impact on me. However, there were a few people I had come across that were different. These people were more interested in my performance, my ability to do the techniques or skills properly and seemed genuinely interested in the outcomes.
As I progressed through my career, handling critical calls in which decisions had to be made in split seconds with little to no time to gather supporting information. I realized how many times in training I had lost in these exact scenarios, how many times I had failed and how little positive reinforcement we had received. I started to take inventory of the training I received and provided and was saddened by what I saw.
I saw officers trained to be in a constant state of fear.
Officers trained to lose in scenario after scenario, yet expected to perform in these situations in real life. I knew if we began to coach officers like athletes, in which our reputation and evaluation was tied to how they performed, we would train them differently. We would coach them to handle fear, to learn from mistakes in training, to create success to breed confidence in them and us.
This realization led to me forming Team Hardy and our courses based on creating confident, mindful officers that are coached to succeed with our techniques and skills. We teach tactically sound, fundamentally solid skills that officers, agency leaders and communities will have confidence in and respect. No more instilling fear and failure into our officers then expecting different outcomes in the field.
This defensive tactics course will certify your officers as coaches in our system with the understanding that we are not training to survive, we are training to WIN!
