Civilian Tactical Program in Sarasota

Get ready Martin Academy is getting ready to officially offer Alan Baker’s Civilian Tactical Course (C-Tac).

What Is C-Tac - Jan 2015
Why you ask?


“Turn on any TV, watch the news and you will see how changes in today’s world and in our culture are creating the need for information and training that exceeds what a normal martial art school or Karate program has to offer. The many benefits of martial arts in our culture has been proven over time and is more than can be mentioned here, but today’s martial arts community simply does not offer the experience, background or knowledge needed to effectively meet the needs in industries that need more narrow, specialized applications. Many “self‐defense” instructors out there today received their certification to teach by attending a three‐day weekend seminar. Many groups in the martial arts that call themselves “martial arts practitioners” claim to offer solutions for today’s needs but when you peel back the layers of the so‐called “realistic programs,” they generally turn out to be just well‐marketed nonsense that was pieced together in order to have something to sell to the unknowing civilian.” Taken from Civilian Tactical Training website


With the background of combat / street oriented arts offered at Martin Academy Civilian Tactical will be a perfect fit. Many of the pieces of C-Tac come from a few of the disciplines taught at MAMAs. Those students who want to study further in a particular area they will be able to do so at Martin Academy because of the high caliber associations we are affiliated with as well as the extensive training and background of the main instructors.

Sifu LaVonne Martin and Kru Ted Georgas had the honor of becoming the first official C-Tac Instructors in the State of Florida and one of only a handful of instructors currently in the U.S.

The course is structured to complement all forms of weapon system and martial arts training however is excellent for those with no prior training yet still interested in protecting themselves and those they care for.

How will it help you?

C‐Tac will give you a well‐rounded effective personal protection plan that will cover intelligent threat assessment and planning, basic firearm use and close quarter manipulation (Disarms, Weapon Retention), effective and realistic defensive tactics (Self‐Defense) that will work in multiple environments including hallways, doorways, ground fighting, and in and around motor vehicles ‐ just to name a few. You will study the urban weapons program that will teach you how to take everyday objects that are around you and use them as tools in a threatening encounter. Also as part of the urban weapons program is how to use a bladed weapon or how to defend against the bladed weapon if someone attempts to use one on you.

C-Tac is dynamic, eye-opening, thought provoking and provides students with a “socially acceptable” response to unfortunately all to-common real-life threatening scenarios.
