PPCT User & Instructor’s Beginner Level
The police pressure point control tactics have been used and taught for the past twenty years by GPG instructors. Shihan K.D. Lintott, the founder of GPG has used this system thousands of times as head of security in several bars; as a body guard and as a police officer. Shihan has been able to use and perfect the methods of the PPCT system in real life situations. He has improved the applications from their original teaching many years ago.
This system is state of the art and considered to be empty hand soft control. These techniques can add a great deal to your personal style or to the style of martial art you currently practice.  They give you better ways to use your pocket stick; long stick; key chain; flash light; key chain holder; defensive baton or empty hands.
Please keep in mind most unprovoked physical assaults or fight last only seconds, you need to prepare for the reality of that. All martial arts have something to offer and they all have some sort of weakness. You will not be able to strike someone into submission or pull off the perfect punch unless you practice and even then, boxers who fight for a living go many rounds without achieving a knock out.
