Meet Jack Leonard...

Staff Instructor Jack Leonard provides subject control training for both law enforcement officers and military personnel. He also provides certification instruction in various civilian courses.

PPCT Training

Mr. Leonard teaches PPCT courses at both the Instructor level and the Basic level. PPCT is a research based training organization that emphasizes the importance of stimulus-response training and the use of gross motor skills whenever possible. The research is conducted in three areas, Tactical, Legal, and Medical. Tactical research answers two questions. First, do the techniques relate to the tasks the officer is required to perform? And second, can the officers learn and retain the techniques for use in the field? Legal research uses court cases to ensure the techniques follow legal guidelines. And finally, Medical research evaluates the medical implications of applying the techniques. Mr. Leonard conducted two research projects for PPCT; one examined two methods of practicing physical skills, and the second was a medical evaluation of the techniques present in the Defensive Tactics program.

Self Defense for Women

Jack also provides training in the area of self-defense for women. Following the guidelines of PPCT's Sexual Harassment Assault & Rape Prevention (SHARP) course and the Mary Conroy Method of self-defense, Mr. Leonard's presentations combine prevention precautions with a minimal number of physical techniques. Because both PPCT and Conroy emphasize gross motor skills, the physical techniques can be quickly and easily mastered.
