Every week we see law enforcement officers struggle with a resisting individual during an arrest, subjects accessing a concealed weapon or the non-compliant person of interest turn into  a weapon-bearing attacker.

The basic training police officers and military operators receive does not always match the realities of what they face yet they put the uniform on, lock in their duty belt and drop their body armour on and hope whatever training they have will kick in when the critical moment matters the most. Officers are dealing with more aggressive, violent and brazen individuals than before. Criminals are faster, stronger and in some instances, even more skilled.

At Pekiti Tirsia Tactics, we recognize and acknowledge the fears officers and operators secretly face. We pass no judgement in training. Our goals are to deliver compartmentalized close quarter combatives training in Edged Weapons Countermeasures, Arrest and Control Dynamics, Weapon Retention and Force Integration Tactics. This is TRICOM (Tri-Angle Combatives System).


TriCom (Triangle Combatives) is a brand under Survival Edge Tactical Systems that specializes in custom combatives programs catering to the unique mission or needs of each individual organization that we train. We have formed a strategic alliance with Survival Edge and each course we teach can be done as an Operator-level course or as a Train-the-Trainer program.

Courses Offered:


Instructions on techniques and tactics for dealing with subjects exhibiting various levels of resistance. The focus of this course is on Gross Motor techniques that have a higher probability of success when working within the stress of a real-world environment. The tactics and techniques fall within the principles of the National Use of Force Framework.

Certification / Recertification Courses & Use of Force Programs are available for a wide range of enforcement groups.


The Expandable Baton User and Instructor programs have been taught to Police, Military and Security units throughout Canada, the United States, Germany, England, Korea, Singapore, Brazil and the Philippines. We have developed policy, procedure and training programs for Law Enforcement and Security Agencies.

Basic certification / recertification courses and advanced expandable baton programs offered.


Statistically more lethal than firearms assaults at extreme close-quarters, edged weapons are a constant threat that law enforcement officers must be aware of and prepared to defend against on a daily basis. In addition to the threat it presents law enforcement professionals, the threat of an edged weapon assault is a reality that we all must be prepared to face in a self-defense situation. 


Most Law Enforcement officers and armed security professionals carry at least one knife on their person when on duty. In addition to the variety of utility functions a knife can perform, many carry a knife with intent to use it as a last-ditch survival weapon or weapon retention tool. Unlike other weapons armed professionals and responsible citizens carry, most do not train in techniques and procedures for how to carry, deploy and in the defensive use of a knife. 


The Close-Quarter Force Integration Tactics (CQ-FIT) module focuses on firearms tactics in a close-quarter engagement. The course is designed to provide officers and operators the options necessary for exploiting optimal angles, understanding space management and the tactics necessary for dominating a close-quarter engagement from single to multiple threats.  


This course is designed to educate the participants on the dangers of ground fighting in a real-world combative environment. Participants are taught how to evade and resist being drawn into a ground fight situation, and how to survive and escape the ground when the officer finds themselves in that environment. Training is done in evolutions to perform techniques in full equipment each participant commonly works in.
