Survival Tactical Concepts

Mission Statement: Our mission is to prepare the mind and body by creating a proactive safe way of life in various environments. We strive forward with a strong commitment to develop and implement reality-enhanced performance training, both mentally and physically, that challenges the demands of our constantly changing and complex society.

Survival Tactical Concepts Inc. is focused on providing the most realistic and practical training to our clients.  As society continues to evolve at a quick pace, we must adapt to these changes that unfortunately bring new methods of criminal activity especially in the area of personal safety.  We believe that the theory “one size fits all” is not appropriate and can only create techniques based on false assumptions as well as a diminished ability to meet personal safety goals.

Each program is tailored toward the specific needs and request of our customers.  This allows for our team to focus on the actual needs while developing appropriate and realistic training based on practically and the vast topic matter experience from our team.  Furthermore, time is critical to everyone in our fast paced society.  By focusing on the specifics, we are better able to utilize the amount of time needed for program development as well as the actual implementation of the training.

We specialize in personal safety training to various segments in our society including: Church member and security staff, Medical profession, Private sector, Public organizations, and Retail industry
