No Late Registration or Drop-In:
Due to the limited space, capacity attendance for this clinic, and secure facility, there will be no drop-in or late registration. Participation will be based on the registration list.
Doors open at 7:30 am and registration, waivers, Par Q registration forms and sign-in will take place from 7:30-8:30 am. The clinic will start at 09:00 hours with a welcome/introduction in the classroom and then will move into the Combatives gym.
Sign-In / Sign Out:
The TTC has 24 hour on-site security monitoring, and there is a requirement for everyone entering the building to only do so at the front entrance and to sign in. If anyone leaves the facility they must do so through the front entrance and sign out when they leave.
Due to the working lunch presentation on Saturday and lack of close restaurants/ nearby food outlets, we are recommending that participants bring their own lunch – there is a microwave/small kitchen on site. Snacks will be provided for this clinic. Once everyone is organized the working presentation will take place in the training classroom. Please bring your lunch and food in the training classroom and enjoy the multi-media presentation.
The Tactical Training Centre (TTC) is a law-enforcement training facility owned and operated by the City of Vancouver. It is not open to the public or community groups unless under the direct supervision of a law enforcement program. It is also the home for the VPD Police Judo Club, one of three Police Judo clubs currently operating in the Lower Mainland of B.C. The Hiroshi Katanishi Instructor Seminar will take place in the training classrooms as well as the Combatives Room – a 2600 sq ft. sprung floor training gym.
The Vancouver Police Department is the primary tenant of the facility and maintains personnel and office space on site. There may be training occurring in the facility (including gun ranges) at the same time as this clinic, so it is important to respect that law enforcement training has priority over other seminars or clinics. Police Instructors are identified by their training uniform.
