UPDATE! With the recent update in guidelines from the government, The City of Tempe has now required masks in public. Due to the change, we will now require students bring and wear a face mask while attending courses. Likewise, if you do not feel well, stay home! If you have signed up for a course, but will not attend due to illness, let us know, and we will issue a full refund.

ASP Baton Course

ASP Baton Course

The ASP Basic Certification (ABC) is an 8-hour, hands-on seminar which trains participants in the operational use of the ASP Tactical Baton. The program is simple to learn and easy to understand. It provides effective defensive impact weapon tactics for law enforcement and private security personnel, as well as responsible civilians without long hours of training. The techniques were designed to work effectively for all users, male and female, large and small, fit as well as those in less-than-peak physical condition.

The program provides portation (carrying) and presentation (drawing) procedures as well as striking techniques. These tactics are quickly learned, easily practiced and realidy maintained long after the program is completed. The ASP Tactical Baton is designed to be used as an impact weapon, not a comealong device. There are no complicated holds or complex moves.

The course is designed to meet three basic standards:

  1. The techniques work on the street, not just in the classroom
  2. The techniques are court defensible and are backed by the nation’s most experienced use-of-force consultants
  3. The program is administratively feasible for use in a contemporary private security or law enforcment agency
