All, I'm seeking input on whether any forum members would be interested in a counter-kidnapping course put on by Armada Global (www.armadaglobalinc.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, 412.253.2013). We're in the process of determining demand for such a course and then will roll out dates if there is interest. The course would be a 2 day seminar format aimed at basic fundamentals to avoid, evade, and counter the threat. Primary emphasis will be on recognizing hostile surveillance from kidnapping/terrorist elements so you can avoid and evade. We'll have a COI on combatives also to counter the threat. Finally additional emphasis will be on defeating restraints so you can escape in prompt fashion if you get snatched. There won't be a firearms piece to this as this is more tailored for business executives traveling overseas (or to Phoenix, AZ). Primary instructor will be a former CIA Counter-Terrorism Ops Officer. If this is of interest to anyone, please let me know.
