about

Welcome to 4TAC5.COM

We provide advanced training and consultancy services for select clients that are prone to abduction, kidnap, restraint and detention during conditions of armed conflict, civil unrest or operations other than war.

Our courses are delivered by Karl OscarDelta a former British Police Officer and subject matter expert for governmental, diplomatic, law enforcement, intelligence and special operations personnel.

Karl is the founder of the Progressive Restraint Escape System (‘The System’) and author of various subject matter books. He also designs and makes escape tools and other products for OscarDelta SPD.

During our courses delegates will be taken through the various stages of capture, transportation, processing and captivity.

During each stage delegates will learn how to exploit weaknesses in the application, type of restraint, transportation and method of confinement.

Some methods will require ‘fast track’ escape methods for escaping during transportation and others will be slow and methodical to avoid detection and allow for the development of an escape plan during your captivity.

We don’t just train to escape….

Hostage-takers will have little of or no training for applying restraints such as handcuffs, cable-ties, rope, or cord to the prisoner’s wrist; often they are applied too tight and this can cause nerve damage resulting in pain, numbness or abnormal touch sensations.

Do not expect a duty of care. The ability to adjust or remove your restraints during captivity at a time of your choosing to minimise injury, improve your comfort and conditions cannot be overstated.

Delegates will also learn how to carry, conceal and use manufactured escape tools to an advanced level and replicate their function using everyday materials.

The knowledge, skills and understanding that you attain during our courses will always remain with you and can never be taken.

When combined with an understanding of fundamental counter kidnap and hostage survival strategies (handbook available) it will give you the best possible chance of adapting to the demands of captivity, irrespective of how long this endures.

Course can be delivered anywhere, worldwide by our Mobile Training Team or at one of our training locations:
