Working with the Military, Police and Close Protection officers, Si-Fu Julian Hitch provides elite training informed by the core principles of Wing Tsun Kung Fu.
In response to the London Riots of 2011, Si-Fu Julian created a training programme that taught UK Police personnel how to control numerous people with proportional and justifiable amounts of force. This built on his previous programme which taught effective skills to subdue someone quickly, whilst minimising risk to both parties. This course provides a simple and easy framework to significantly reduce the millions of pounds of payouts through lawsuits that the UK Police currently faces each year.
Si-Fu Julian has created specialist programmes for military personnel in combat, anti-terrorist and hostage situations. Providing realistic training, soldiers maximise the chance of success in combat, whilst decreasing the risk of unnecessary violence by providing simple and effective options for escalating force. By teaching soldiers weapons retention, defence in confined spaces, knife defence and knife fighting, they can develop instinctive skills without that don't require memorisation of complicated techniques. Si-Fu Julian also created a unique S.E.R.E programme (Survive Escape Resist Evade) for specialist units, focusing on how to fight when handcuffed, fast sentry removal and how to escape police locks.
In 2005, Si-Fu Julian started working with close protection (body guard) services to help them enhance their skills, placing a focus on de-escalating situations and disarming potential threats. Developing an intense programme to give instinctive skills in a very short period of time, he also adapted Wing Tsun principles to create third-party defence and anti-hijacking programmes.
