What is CDT®?
CDT is a soft handed control/restraint system that is easy to learn, maintain and apply. CDT was designed for real world situations to physically control or disarm a hostile aggressor, and keep him in compliance or completely restrained until help arrives.
CDT was originated in 1992 based on the need for a proven system that focuses strictly on diffusion a physical aggressor. It was specifically made for Law Enforcement and Security personnel but over the years has evolved to address the needs or workplace violence. CDT is now being implemented in hospitals, public and private schools, airlines, night-clubs and religious organizations.
CDT has successfully proven itself in the use of force world with a flawless, proven track record. The key to the CDT System is that it addresses personal well-being and subject safety while decreasing the liability factors of all concerned. By covering these three major aspects it allows for safer control and less risk of potential liability factors. That alone makes it different than any other soft-handed systems in today’s proper use of force world.
