 #tbt putting a little bit of background history here on this throwback Thursday. All the way from right before high school to present day, martial arts has always been part of my life and a way to de-stress.

Two guys who have been with me on my martial arts road on and off Halim Rodriguez  and Chris Cantu and one main mentor, Edwin Rodriguez. What an interesting ride brothers!!

Danger in Corrections: Why the Corrections Tactical Operator NEEDS to evolve


This video shows how dangerous, volatile and explosive the world of a Corrections Officer can be. The new times that we currently live in  different times. Times where inmates having cell phone in their cells with the ability to record themselves and all the things that go on inside their cells and pods.

As you can see from this video, Pepper Spray, sting ball grenades had “0” effect on the determined inmates. They know, expect and prepare for our tactics...the majority of most corrections tactical operations teams still use 1970’s era tactics....if you don’t think they know your tactics and are ready, you’re fooling yourself. Corrections NEEDS to wake up and realize that the days of the “knuckle dragger..6’2, 300lbs, line backer with a shield” are over! Those tactics will only get the officers, Inmate hurt or worse, eventually opening up the department for legal liability issues putting thousands of not millions in the inmates bank account.

We need to change, grow and adapt just like they do. Check the video out, learn and adapt. Be safe, be smart, be vigilant, train hard!!

Hostage Rescue in a Correctional Setting

A subject which was Taboo in Corrections (Hostage Rescue), now is a must for any Corrections Tactical Team. Our instructors here teach Operators on proper techniques to effectively rescue an officer.

With the ever changing times Corrections teams need to be versatile, adaptable, proactive and dependable. This means being master of all within the Corrections environment. When a worse case scenario happens ( an officer, staff, or inmate) is taken hostage and time is not on out side. When that happens, Corrections Tactical Team need to have the right training and training relevant to Corrections and it’s 

environment. This is something that we here at TOG-US are well aware of and try it bring the operators attending our courses the most realistic and relevant training possible.  

Working to bring professional training to the Corrections Tactical Operator and Corrections Tactical Operations

We here at TOG-US pride ourselves in having some of the best instructors in the field of Corrections Tactical Operations. Having the ability to bring the experiences of five field proven Operators and tactical leaders is an asset to every department that allow us to train their team elements. 

Over the years we've had the privilege of training and working alongside some great sheriff offices and team members. The fact that all departments keep coming to our courses is testimate to the quality of training TOG-US training cadre puts forth. 

When training in high liability issues such as an activation of your tactical emergency team is, having a well trained team and knowledged in the latest proven tactics is crucial to any department...this is something we all understand too well.  


Experience teams work on their fundamentals in clearing cells and pods under high risk situations. 


Basic and advanced skills are ironed out by ensuring basic tactical fundamentals are mastered. Corrections Tactical Operators here work on ensuring their fundamentals in both cell clearing and complete pod dominance are achieve.
