ASP Expandable Baton Course

The ASP Expandable Baton Course is specifically designed for Law Enforcement, Security Officers, and other industry professionals. All techniques taught work on the street and not just in the classroom.  They are court defensible and backed by the nation’s most experienced use of force consultants. The course is meant to provide the student with an understanding of the conditions in which the baton may be used, justification for use, and how to document these actions. The course goes into great depth on Portation (Carrying), Presentation (Drawing), Striking techniques, Mechanical function, and Maintenance. The training incorporates drills which simulate the wide variety of street encounters which may require the use of an expandable baton. The class provides efficient defensive impact weapon tactics for personnel without long hours of training. The tactics are quickly learned, easily practiced, and readily maintained.  This course provides techniques that work 90% of the time on 90% of subjects. Students retain the ability to disengage or escalate as the situation may require. Upon completion of the course student will receive a certification card in the mail. The ASP Baton certification is a lifetime certification that does not expire.

The ASP Expandable Baton can be purchased off of the official ASP website prior to attending the class. We suggest our students purchase either 21 inch or 26 inch ASP Friction Loc Baton. In addition, we prefer our students use the ASP Rotating Side Break Scabbard. Students are encouraged to bring their own duty belts. No live firearms are allowed in the course. Students should be in good physical condition and be able to perform rigorous exercises. Wearing boots with good lateral support is highly suggested.
