Tactical Edge (Close Quarter Combatives)

Mr Hutcheson is also a Fully Certified Tactical Edge Instructor, having qualified back in 2016.

Tactical Edge Close Quarter Combatives and Women's Self Defense classes are run as "pop-ups" due to their very direct nature of the content and are only for over 18's!

Tactical Edge is the Combatives System founded by Mark Davies in the UK but it's origins are from all over the world.

Originally created as a Close Combat method for Special Forces soldiers, it has evolved over the years and was additionally developed into a full civilian Combatives System. 

In Tactical Edge we use methods that have been specifically adapted from the methods used by edged weapons arts. For instance, we treat any striking attack as if there is a weapon involved, so we're never surprised by one; & we use a matrix of limb destructions to de-animate the limb, cause cross-extensive reflex action in the other limb, re-set the OODA loop by causing pain & injury on the first beat and if there is a weapon in the hand either cause an explosive disarm or weaken the limb to make a strip or 'returning blade'.

Tactical Edge is NOT just about learning 'Reality Based Self Defence' though. It is a fascinating exploration of some of the worlds most effective combative methods. It is about developing your physical & mental attributes & thus improving your life.

In our Tactical Edge classes the emphasis is on combatives training. Our physical conditioning is tailored specifically towards defensive combat. We're not practising a sport, so our students aren't training to fight 3 minute rounds.

Our practitioners need to be able to explode into aggressive action for a short period of time; but during that time they need to be able fight effectively under adrenal stress.
