A wide range of situational surroundings are covered in the system. Crowded spaces, open spaces, confined spaces, aisle ways, parking lots, work place, elevators, stairwells, inside a car, and wooded areas, to name a few.

A wide range of physical engagement situations are covered in the system. Unarmed fighting, ground fighting, long and short stick weapons, throwing weapons, flexible weapons, long and short bladed weapons, modern tactical weapons (pen, flashlight, baton, pepper spray, Taser), handguns, improvised weaponry and weapon compatibility.
