The Outcast team from inception was founded out of a foreseen need for a more realistic approach to close protection training as we see it was all too common placed in the industry that you would be given this flashy "John Wick" perception of what life will be like once you enter this career and the focus was always heavy on the theory aspects without proper reinforcement of teaching actual content that is useful and works in real life. Despite being from various parts of the world as heads of our own individual companies, we decided to come together and form a group that would take a no nonsense approach to bringing reality based training to the forum of public access. We provide "all the meat without the fat" real world experience and approach to teaching, that is Outcast Tactical.
