The Curriculum at Tactical Studies
Tactical Studies Group teaches an American system of martial art which may be called the Art of the Invisible Hand. The curriculum consists in six categories of study and training:
Taken together, the principles and mechanisms of what may be called the Art of the Invisible Hand, can enable the private individual to articulate a system of limited autonomy consisting in the principles of morality, i.e.: of justice and propriety, in a method of self governance according to those principles secured and defended by the just and proper use of force, and in the technical methods by which to cultivate and deploy deception and force within the limits of the law.
The method is a simple and effective means by which the trainee can govern his or her own life utilizing the same basic, general principles of governance by which nation states are governed, limited by the moral principles proclaimed by the Founding Fathers of the United States of America in paragraph two of the Declaration of Independence.
The principles are few and simple; the applications are numerous and varied, extending well beyond the problems of close combat.
The art is accessible to all persons and may be applied everywhere and at all times to advantage.
The method enables the practitioner to do four things:
to avoid dangerous problems,
to solve unavoidable problems efficiently, that is, without resort to force,
to respond to violence with the judicious use of deception and or force,
to be aware of the probable consequences of the force option and to prepare for them.
It should be understood that our expertise and qualifications do not extend to all aspects of the six categories, particularly as they apply to law enforcement and military operations, and that these areas will be considered theoretically as appropriate, where they affect a proper understanding of civic martial art. At the Tactical Studies Group, we tend to concentrate on philosophy, policy, tactics and skills while covering some practical, theoretical and historical aspects of logistics and strategy.
Tactical Studies Group will work with you to develop a curriculum around your goals and schedule. For more information on private instruction and group classes, or to schedule a private interview, please call 212-749-1220 or Click Here to Request Information.
