The Truth About John Nottingham’s Tactical Training in Arizona

John, (John Nottingham was at the time contracted with HELIX Tactical/Arizona Security Professionals)

Just a quick note, to thank you, and all of the cadre and staff, at AZ Security Professionals, for yesterday’s unarmed security guard training certification class. It was a fun, enjoyable and highly instructive session, which very much surpassed my expectations.

Having been in the Arizona Security business for over twenty years now, as a client receiving contract guard services, and as an employee of a contract Security company, I’ve seen a great deal of sub-par training and operations. ASP is definitely the cream of the crop, and I was so impressed, with everything I saw.

More to the point, your training style, broad knowledge, of a wide range of topics, and delivery is exceptional, and it was crystal clear, that you are a true professional and gentleman, with a tremendous amount of zeal, for your job and chosen profession. Thank you again, John, continued good luck to you, sir, and maybe our paths will cross again. Take care.

To Jim Harter
From R. Summers
I just wanted to thank you and your other instructors for an awesome class. I thought I would be bored and this would be a normal training session to get my guard card. I want to be the first to tell how wrong I was about that assumption. The instructors took a lot of time with everyone in the class to make sure we left with more then a piece of paper. I would recommend you to anyone seeking professional training.
Thank you!

Dear Jim Harter,
I just wanted to tell you that you guys saved my life. When I left class taught by your instructors, it changed my life. I even changed my diet. I am now better aware of how things can go wrong very quickly and now possess the skills to do something about it, while using what I was taught. If you guys needed a cheerleader, I would be your 300lb cheerleader. I loved it…loved it. I thought I was a bad ass, until you all proved me wrong and showed me what I did not know. WOW…WOW”
Thank you,
Marcial Rodriquez

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MMA Legend Dan “The Beast” Severn
Teaches Arizona Police Defensive Tactics

PHOENIX, Arizona (September 01, 2010) – Helix Tactical and USA Martial Arts honor local law enforcement, military and first responders by offering free defensive tactics training by UFC Hall of Famer and ASU wrestling legend, Dan Severn.

The training will be available from 6:30-8:30pm on Wednesday September 1, 2010 at the grand opening of the newest location of Helix Tactical at Tatum and Greenway roads in North Phoenix. The event will include a tribute to local law enforcement, military and first responders as part of the festivities.

“It is time that we demonstrate our appreciation to those who serve our country and community. We are honored to have true MMA Legend and Competitor, Dan Severn, to be a technical advisor, subject matter expert and instructor,” said James Harter, owner of Helix Tactical. “We have to face it, MMA is the fastest growing sport in the world and effects the way people are resisting officers. Dan provides the experience, leadership and skill set to help guide this integration of proven and highly efficient skills into defensive tactics for officer survival and the humane handling of suspects. It is designed to counter the bad guys’ MMA skills. It is also a tremendous confidence builder for officers to learn and stay healthy.”

Dan Severn, still active as a fighter, has over 95 state, national, and international wrestling titles under his belt. He has captured the attention of fight and wrestling fans all over the world since his 1994 debut in the Ultimate Fighting Championships [UFC]. Dan is known as “The Beast”, a name given to him by Jim Brown during one of his many fights in the UFC. The Beast’s world class wrestling skill, commitment, and desire have provided the foundation for his success.

The native of Coldwater, Michigan, Dan is the only Triple Crown UFC champion in the sport today. He began his career in the fight game as a Greco-Roman and freestyle wrestler in High School and continued as a collegiate wrestler at Arizona State University. Dan captured many local titles and several national and world titles, setting eight national records in his early career. He was inducted into Arizona State University’s Wrestling Hall of Fame at the end of his prestigious collegiate career.

After college, Dan continued on a quest to be the best amateur wrestler in the world. Numerous competitions from 1982 to 1994 took him to Japan, Hungary, Cuba, France, and Turkey. On each trip, Severn captured another title. Dan also secured 13 National AAU wrestling championships during those years. The Beast also tried his hand at coaching wrestling at ASU and Michigan State University as he continued to compete. He accepted all challengers in any no holds barred, or professional wrestling events. On May 17, 1996, Dan was crowned the UFC Superfight Champion in his home state of Michigan. He defeated “The World’s Most Dangerous Man”, Ken Shamrock to regain the title. In 1999, Dan reached a milestone by competing in his 4000th match.

In addition to his wresting career, Dan also holds Black Belts in the sports of Sombo, Judo, and JiuJitsu. He is a UFC Champion and has been inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame. Dan has also appeared on 48 Hours, 20/20, The Gordon Elliot Show, Nash Bridges, and many commercials.

John Nottingham, Co-Director of Training at Helix Tactical and President of USA Martial Arts says, “This is a great example of how Helix Tactical integrates multiple disciplines to provide the best solutions for our customers. Our expertise in tactical training, real life simulation and education made us the right choice for Arizona’s training programs. The grand opening event will introduce many locals to our services.”
