This is a rare and unique opportunity to work with these two  professionals.

Come and train with Josafath Herrera and Vali Majd for a week of strictly tactical training at Roots Dojo, Denman Island.

Professor Herrera comes to us with a solid background in tactical spanning over 20 years. He has been responsible for training over 5000 police and SWAT officers in Mexico, and trained dozens of elite bodyguards dedicated to high profile details. A student of the KOGA system, Josafath is also a lead instructor in realistic scenario based training, and holds various certificates. He is also Latin America’s foremost Systema Instructor.  Today he continues to consult and teach various agencies and civilian groups both locally and internationally.  He is currently responsible for a security conference to be held in Mexico City under the auspices of the United Nations, for both the private and military sectors.

Vali Majd is the founder and director of JTFCanada based in British Columbia. He has developed several course and curricula for various agencies seeking safety, survival and tactical training for front line personnel. JTFSecurity, a branch of JTFCanada is a leading, hands-on security company licensed in British Columbia offering protective services, event security, asset protection along with patrol and static guards. Vali continues to train, teach and operate in the field of security services on a daily basis.  He also is a first and foremost Systema Instructor on the west coast and continues to teach out of his Dojo when not operational or teaching elsewhere.

The topics covered will benefit all security professionals, regardless of rank or background, including law enforcement and military personnel, along with civilians.

The curriculum is demanding and challenging, however the methodology will permit those with various limitations to participate in this course.

The first two days will be under the tutelage of Vali Majd. Professor Herrera will join him directly from Mexico for the last 3 days.

The work presented and covered during this 5-day training camp is a very unique opportunity to explore  and refine various tactical approaches and work, and acquire new tools and skills to better function in environments carrying a threat to life.
