For all things counter custody and restraint escape you will truly become a quiet professional.

All training materials and kits included.


Fast Track – EDIP

The Fast Track EDIP is an entry level course that focuses on each component of the Fast Track Counter Custody Kit (FT-CCK) so you can discover the additional functions of each component to get the most from each tool; providing for more rapid results and accelerate the progress of escaping restraints/confinement during the early stages of kidnap.

Using a process of Explain, Demonstrate, Imitate and Practice (EDIP) you will be shown how various restraints work, including handcuffs from around the world, the weaknesses in the design and application that can be exploited with the FT-CCK tools.

With the knowledge, skills and understanding delivered during the Fast Track – EDIP you’ll also be able to replicate the function of the FT-CCK components using everyday materials; so if you lose or find yourself without ‘tools’ all is not lost!
