Off the X Tactics


OTX is not just your standard tactical training program. Where we distinguish ourselves from traditional martial arts and Jiu Jitsu training is we have practical application and thorough curriculum. One of the most dangerous positions to be in as LE is on your back in a fight or with a resisting party. Our spectrum is from teaching tactics to keep you on your feet to survival skills and escaping or controlling a situation if you do end up on the ground. We want you to go home safely.




“We don’t rise to the level of our expectations; we fall to the level of our training.” -Archilochos

We are raising the bar.


Choosing a job in public service or military or opting to have your concealed carry permit selectively and intentionally minimizes your options with fight or flight response. We want to prepare you to survive the fight. We want to give you the tools to protect those who choose flight and further provide you the ability to get home safe. With that in mind, we want to provide you the training and experience to make a decision and respond swiftly, naturally and strategically. We want you to be able to get off the X as an instinctive response.

Welcome to Off the X Tactics.

 Duty belt and gear is optional for all classes. NO LIVE WEAPONS IN THE BUILDING. We obviously support the right to bear arms (with the dedication to morally sound use and proficient handling), we just want to uphold the highest safety standards for training and simplify the safety measure process for more efficient training and for your safety. We have yellow and blue training weapons for your use during class.
