What Our Attendees Say:
As a MPTC Defensive Tactics instructor for the past several years I have gone to several D/T style classes, and have trained with many different instructors. But I have to say that after attending the Russell Stutely three day Pressure Point Defensive Tactics class (PPDT). I have found a new style that I know works and I would recommend it to all who teach Defensive Tactics. I can attest from attending the class that the technique that is taught works.

Russell is one of the most knowledgeable instructors that I have ever had the pleasure of training with.
