highly experienced team

A Highly Experienced Team

What truly sets us apart from other training providers and consultants is our unmatched collective background in the military, positioning us as leaders in our field. Comprised of top-tier individuals who have ascended to the pinnacle of their careers within the UK’s premier infantry units and police forces, each instructor brings over three decades of invaluable experience— an achievement realised by less than 1% of the armed forces—ensuring the utmost proficiency and standards.

With extensive tenure in specialised roles, our team members have amassed combat experience from diverse theatres worldwide, remaining current and competent in military skill at arms standards and range qualifications.

Moreover, our team’s versatility extends beyond military prowess. They seamlessly transition between roles in front of and behind the camera, contributing as stunt performers in major blockbuster productions such as No Time to Die (2021), the exhilarating Fast & Furious series, and Masters of the Air (2024) to name a few.

Our experts’ direct involvement in big-screen spectacles enriches their guidance, facilitating a seamless fusion of cinematic vision with battle-tested expertise. The outcome is an unwavering commitment to authenticity, safety, and precision in every scene, ensuring our clients receive unparalleled training and confidence in their productions.
