What is Savage combatives?


THE SAVAGE CombativesTM Program

The SAVAGE CombativesTM Program is just as much about mindset as it is about skill set. It was designed to give each student the mindset and skill set to Survive Against Violent And Grievous Encounters. Ranganhar combined the training and experiences he accumulated in his martial arts training, work as a night club bouncer and body guard, United States Marine Corps, and Law Enforcement careers, to develop a program for those individuals who did not have the opportunity or inclination to gain the necessary training and experience. Additionally, Raganhar collaborated with specialists in security contracting, executive protection, bushcraft and survival, and martial arts to develop a more comprehensive program. Each course discusses tactics as well as legal considerations. The Program places emphasis on the why behind everything being instructed and puts everything into proper context. 

Students will learn the information in each module, and then each module is concluded with force on force scenarios with role players and instructors overseeing the pace of each scenario. Most of the scenarios involve role players in padded suits so that students can truly pressure test what they have learned in as close to a violent encounter as we can safely put the student through. Once each scenario is completed, the student is required to provide legal justification for their actions and debrief the instructor on what happened during the scenario.

Each module can be taken individually like college courses (provided pre-requisites have been met), or chronologically as a part of the SAVAGE CombativesTM Program. 

There are courses available through other companies that are less expensive than our courses. Our courses however offer a unique training methodology and equipment specifically designed to maximize your training and learning. Each course was written by Aaron Raynor. Raynor has 30 years of training and experience in a variety of martial disciplines, served in the United States Marine Corps for seven years, worked in the private security sector including contract work, executive protection, and bouncing. For the last decade, Raynor has been an active federal law enforcement officer. You will be receiving a unique and semi-private training program that was developed as a culmination of these trainings and experiences. We typically limit our class size to no more than 10 students, or 3-5 students per instructor.
