Had our second day of Hicks today.
Very sore, but I learned a lot and had fun too.
I don't know if this is the norm or not, but Lew Hicks actually taught our class.
Talked a lot about integrity and character, which was not something I expected for a self defense class.
I shouldn't be too surprised, as those points are hit constantly in training.

Between this and the range last week, I think I've got a permanent grin.

What is Hicks training? Do you ride around in a primer pickup, spitting tobacco out the window, while looking for an unobservant sheep?

Use of Force Continuum Training?

The Hicks Police Training System teaches law enforcement personnel how to use
the appropriate level of controlled, articulated force necessary to respond to and
effectively handle any type of physically dynamic situation. The system does not
teach the use of impact weapons or the creation of space between officer and
suspect. Instead, it provides law enforcement personnel with a full-range system of graduated physical control movements that are based on physics, physiology,
kinesiology and geometric structure. The overall objective of The Hicks Police
Training System is to train police officers to work in any environment or situation
that arises, with the ability to adapt and meet changing circumstances and apply
the correct response, use of force, control, or restraint that is necessary. In
essence, it provides the link between weaponless tactics and effective community
patrol and policing.

Whew that's a mouthful!!

Sounds good but also seems a llttle complex for most officers to grasp.

Maybe the OP can elaborate a little more.
