Core Grappling Tactics for Female Officers
The mechanics and practical exercises were extremely valuable to me. The techniques taught in this course are practical and useful in day to day use on the job.
The best feature of this course was the hands on activities. Fred is a great teacher - not only is he patient, he is also very easy going and easy to learn from.
The strengths of this program were getting in the mat room and starting with the hands on activities. Immediately I learned many techniques that may save my life one day if the situation arises.
This is the best course I have taken. Fred is an awesome instructor and teaches at everyone's own pace. Fred breaks down each movement so that they're easily learned. Fred doesn't use technique terms; everyday terms are easier to remember. Fred takes his time and allows each of us to learn and practice until we are comfortable and ready to move on.
I honestly didn't see any weaknesses. Fred's program is a welcomed addition to our 'tool boxes'! Fred's teaching is altered to each student's environment and is useful no matter of size. Fred really helped us for our profession. He really understands that females and males fight and react different. He has excellent technique.
The best feature of this course was the overall interaction. This was the first class that really helped us 'females' learn effective tools that we could really use.
I hope you offer more classes like this. This is very beneficial training for women. Fred really helped us learn new tools to use on the road.
You need to offer more of these classes.
Please keep offering classes like this. More female officers could benefit from Fred. I hope you are going to also offer intermediate and advanced classes.
The best feature of the class was basic techniques that were easy for everyone to understand and perform in practical exercises. Fred made the class fun, relaxed and interesting!
I consider the strength of this program delivered in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Fred has the ability to adapt the lessons to the needs of the students.
Fred covered all scenarios. We need more training classes like this.
Fred taught us multiple tactics that are beneficial for female officers because our strength are in our hips and leg area; not upper body.
What I consider as the strength of this program is it is practical. The instructor was patient. All scenarios were addressed and we were taught the tactics of the scenarios. It did not matter if you are in Corrections or Patrol; all the females had basically the same concerns.
Fred, your class was great. I hope to see another one of your classes. You taught me a lot. Thank you. This was the best defensive tactics class I have been to.
Fred is a great instructor who takes his time with his students to make sure they learn the techniques. The instructor was good at teaching the techniques to make learning easy and fun.
This class was so good at showing you that no matter what size you are the techniques can work. I don't see any weaknesses other than the class is not offered more. I think more people in law enforcement/corrections should have access to this class.
Every female deputy would benefit from this class.
The best feature of this course was the hands on grappling.
I consider the strength of the program is that Fred let us give him scenarios to work with; problems that present themselves to us at the jail.
I would rate this instructor (Fred) higher than the highest rating allowed (which is a 5). I give him a 10! I highly recommend Fred. I will recommend him to everyone I can.
The quality of instruction and the simplicity of his technique are the best features of this course. Excellent training!
The greatest strength of the class besides the awesome training is Fred's ability to train without injury. I can give my attention and focus to learning because I don't have to constantly protect myself from injury.
There were no weaknesses in this course. It was by far the most awesome course I have ever taken of its kind. I cannot say enough good things about Fred Crivello and this course. I learned more in this one class than I have learned in dozens of defensive tactic classes over the years. I've learned how to protect myself and stop the threat without hurting myself or killing the criminal and making my agency liable in a use of force. Excellent training. Thank you very, very much.
I would definitely recommend Fred Crivello's class to any person interested in self-defense or grappling. The practical, the grappling with the instructor is extremely beneficial. Fred doesn't only grapple, he stops to show other students and gives students an opportunity to show moves they have learned.
The ability of Fred Crivello to be given any situation and he can give solutions or options is what I consider the strengths of this program.
The only weakness is there isn't another class or a two week class.
This was an excellent class and it will be recommended.
This class was very practical for female officers.
The best feature of the class was the timing was great and the pace perfect for learning. Fred took his time and made sure all questions were answered. We all had time to use the techniques and he had the patience with each student. We all learned how to use our body types to our advantage.
What I consider as the strengths of this program was Fred Crivello is full of knowledge and skills. I truly enjoyed the class. I would recommend he teach more classes, especially the female or smaller officers. The philosophy taught in this class is something that I will use and could possibly save a life.
I will take any class that I see Fred Crivello's name on. His philosophy is amazing, useful and I truly believe in it. Fred is awesome.
The best feature of this course was the fact that we were taught tactics that we can actually use as women. What we have been taught (in prior courses) is not practical or useful. This class is geared toward us and what we need.
The best feature of this program was Fred's attitude. There was no ego. He just wanted to help us; that's something that we don't get.
The only weakness of the program is that there is not more of these classes available to female officers. We need it; so please make sure Fred gets more courses to teach.
This is the best class I've taken so far. If Fred teaches another I will definitely try to get it!

I really enjoyed the course and hope to take more with the same instructor.

The best feature of this course was the hands on with instructor. Most instructors in other courses show / demonstrate the move and allow students to practice on each other. Hands on with the instructor allowed for corrective procedures.
Great class for people who want to learn the basics of ground fighting. Also great for people with experience in ground fighting to re familiarize themselves with the basics.
The best feature of this course was the practical exercises.

The flexibility of the instructor. He fostered an environment where I felt confident working with an all male class. A great class. I appreciate the fact that he did not belittle other instructors / techniques and if you had a better way to do something, he was humble enough to be open for suggestions. Great class. I can't wait for the next one.
