Survival Edge Tactical Systems was founded in 2006 by then full-time Police Trainer and SWAT Operator Jared Wihongi in response to requests for his training services by a local Army Special Forces unit. Since then, and with the help of business partner Geoff Perrin, the company has grown to encompass multiple facets of tactical training, consulting and professional services.
Over the past decade Survival Edge Tactical Systems has provided regular services in North & South America, Europe, Asia, Australasia & Africa, and their network extends into many parts of these geographical areas.

While on Patrol responding to a call about a suspicious male individual, I spotted the suspect and initiated a stop. As I proceeded toward the individual I conducted my investigation and that determined that I place him in handcuffs.
The individual was not complying with my instructions to place his hands behind his back so I then proceeded closer to him and grabbed his right arm attempting to utilize a over and under grip but he pulled his arm back, immediately as he pulled back and I saw he had his right leg back I knew he was going to punch me with his right hand. So I bursted forward with both my guards up and closed the distance while his hook punch went around the left side of my head and did somewhat of something similar to the tactical clinch but instead I was in the inside line and had my right arm braced against his neck and my left arm wrapped around his right arm. during the struggle I felt he was strong so I immediately transitioned into the arm clinch that I learned from my Tricom Fundamentals Course I am currently taking. While in the arm clinch now on the outside line, I spun my right leg around and took him down to the ground pinning my shoulder and weight on his shoulder and transitioned into the control Position and had him face his palm up and cross his legs then proceeded to handcuffing.
I would just like to say thank you for showing me life saving Techniques that helped me under real life pressure. I will continue to practice the course and still in week #8.
Thank you again Tuhon Jared.”
“…In case you’re don’t remember me, I’m one of the grenadiers on the SLC
POU. I want to give you a very sincere thank you for bringing a high level of training and equipment to SLC.
I honestly believe the helmet we wear thanks to you, saved my life on Saturday during the riots,I was hit in the head so hard with what I think was a street sign, that I got a concussion through the helmet.
My first child is being born in August and if not for the helmet you recommended and got for us, I may not have been around to see him be born.
So again sincerely thank you, and I owe you a beer, or a case.”
“Excellent technique. We used it during use of force incident on duty today and worked quite nicely. It is so simple I was able to talk my partner through it while I controlled the suspect on ground even though he has never practiced TriCom before. Thanks “
2 years correctional experience working in max and closed custody levels with several years of event and bar security. I also hold a black belt and earned the level and title Maestro in the integrated warrior arts system. Its there version of Guro.
I was dispatched to a theft investigation and contacted the suspect, who surprisingly lied to me about her involvement in the incident. Once the truth (and stolen property) was found in her bedroom I went back to her walkway, where she was with my backing officer. I advised her she was under arrest and her response was “F*** you! Don’t touch me!” and proceeded to run into her home.
I was able to grab her left arm before she was able to close the door. She turned to strike me, but I was able to apply the standing arm bar before she completed her action. This resulted in her being forcefully assisted into the prone position and taken into custody. Of course, she made multiple complaints to the mayor’s office that I forced my way into her home and beat her up.
This technique has been a go to for me and has been used multiple times over the years. I know it’s not a guaranteed thing, but it hasn’t failed me yet.
i am glad to be part of this awsome community.
I do have used some of your Tricom Tactical clinch stuff during some of our tasks. It was very helpfull espacily in the final process of our tasks. Mostly when the thread was not escalating too much. It helped me a lot to get fast and good control of the situation.
I allready teched some stuff to my buddys and they are all very happy about that knowlege.
I would like to stay anonym for safety for me, my buddys and our familys. Hope you understand my situation.
Hope my answere helps.
Every year I was able to participate in the training in TRICOM in Salt Lake City, training with other policemen from different parts of the world, exchanging experiences and all absorbing the same techniques to control reactive suspects or not. My police agency is in Brazil and I can assure you that TRICOM has made a difference in my work. Greater confidence and more effectiveness when needed.
I have shared this technique with my colleagues and everyone comments very well about TRICOM.
