D-WAR (Declare War Against Rape)

Tank Todd developed the D-WAR course of instruction after more than 30 years of instructing specialist self-defence and developed skills that give the victim of sexual violence the best chance of winning, not merely surviving, an attack. The principles, tactics, and skills are all based on military specialist close quarters combat where one always considers the enemy to be bigger, stronger, faster, physically fitter, highly skilled, and committed to causing grievous bodily harm. The D-WAR package has been designed and developed to provide the best and most proven means available under extensive test conditions to safely neutralise serious sexual predators and predatory sexual violence threats. For more information, read the D-WAR article. Enquiries: [email protected]

Special Operations CQB Master Chief Instructor. Over 30 years experience. The only instructor qualified descendent of Baldock, Nelson, and Applegate. Former instructors include Harry Baldock (unarmed combat instructor NZ Army WWII), Colonel Rex Applegate OSS WWII and Charles Nelson, US Marine Corps. Tank has passed his Special Forces combative instructor qualification course in Southeast Asia and is certified to instruct the Applegate, Baldock and Nelson systems. His school has been operating for over eighty years and he is currently an Army Special Operations Group CQB Master Chief Instructor. His lineage and qualifications from the evolutionary pioneers are equalled by no other military close combat instructor. His operation includes his New Zealand headquarters, and 30 depots worldwide as well as contracts to train the military elite, security forces, and close protection specialists. Annually he trains thousands of exponents and serious operators that travel down-under to learn from the direct descendant of the experts and pioneers of military close combat. Following in the footsteps of his former seniors, he has developed weapons, and training equipment exclusive to close combat and tactical applications. He has published military manuals and several civilian manuals and produced DVDs on urban self protection, tactical control and restraint, and close combat. He has racked up an impressive 100,000+ hours in close combat.
