[Video] Fast Takedown

Simulation Developers and DT Trainers, here’s a thought for an isolation drill using RedMan Training Gear. In the first 4-seconds of the video, the subject rapidly approaches the officers.  Using this as the starting point for the isolation drill and with participants wearing RedMan Training Gear allow the scenario to play out until the subject is effectively under control.  We teach methods of using Isolation Drills in most of our instructor courses – especially RedMan/Force on Force courses.


  • Will your officers move laterally to create distance first?
  • Will your officers move directly to resolve the threat?
  • Will your officers retrograde and deploy intermediate weapons?
  • What other response options do you anticipate?

Consider using the video for a facilitated discussion after all of your students have experienced the drill.
