Welcome to TLT…Transitional Lethal Tactics.
Dr. John Landry, who gained his PhD in adult learning and was editor for two our our CLM manuals, has more than 25 years of law enforcement experience, spanning from patrol to detective, undercover, SWAT, and law enforcement academy director.

Dr. Landry and Matt (our founder) have coordinated together for years on developing the CLM. In 2014 they began to work on taking what Dr. Landry has taught for years…a POST accepted unarmed lethal tactics program…for civilians.

This program is called TLT, or Transitional Lethal Tactics.

Here’s the first video on Youtube.

You can listen to an interview with Dr. Landry on our podcast at http://pramek.com/lectures/

Matt Powell and Aaron Cowan of Sage Dynamics, coordinating with Dr. Landry, will be releasing numerous videos geared for the CCW and LEO community.

What’s the difference between TLT and other programs?

Many programs taught by Law Enforcement are geared for Law Enforcement…then taught to civilians.
This poses a problem, as many times Defensive Tactics programs do not fit the civilian mold. Developed for officers who have a high numbers of tools to subdue an opponent, as well as strict guidelines on fore, civilians are judged by a different standard. Many times defensive tactics programs are years behind the current knowledge on self-defense for civilians.

Most importantly, law enforcement programs rarely teach lethal tactics beyond firearms.

Dr. Landry has changed this in the LE community, developing with other doctors a comprehensive programs for law enforcement taught to officers in a major US state.

But, at Pramek and as LE officers, we understand that there is a fine line between teaching for self-defense and exposing law enforcement tactics that the general public should not know.

Enter, TLT.

TLT, under the guidance of Dr. Landry, combined his programs with Pramek’s combatives methods and CLM…giving firearms owners a modern method of defending themselves based on decades of research, experience, and training in the law enforcement community.

We look forward to working further with Dr. Landry on the TLT program.
