The Israeli Tactical School is an international executive protection and counter terror academy. Primarily located in the USA, the school carries out training projects and protection services for high-value dignitaries and public figures across the globe. To be successful in this, the Israeli Tactical School’s mission is to provide superior hands-on training from experienced and battle tested tier-one operators. The school has instructors from Tier-One Israeli units, the US Secret Service, and US Army Special Forces. These Instructors are selected carefully in order to ensure a standard of excellence and the ability to teach and protect international clients with varying cultures and languages.
Executive Protection missions and training are the crown-jewels of the school’s operation, with a specialization in Head of State Protection. The Israeli Tactical School has provided protection unit training for multiple Heads of State, Kings and their families, presidents, members of parliaments, wealthy business moguls, and celebrities from the entertainment industry. Many of our graduated students will later work with the school’s protection projects or with peer companies that hire them due to the footage of high-quality training our students receive at the school.
In the school’s protection program, we focus on attack prevention. That is, the ability to stop, delay, manipulate, and deceive attackers. These efforts utilize counter-surveillance tactics such as how to avoid being tracked physically/electronically, how to effectively break routine, cyber security, social media presence, and the dark web. Students will learn these skills as well as more traditional methods such as physical deterrents.
An instrumental aspect that sets The Israeli Tactical School apart from its competition is our focus on combat training for executive protection missions. Pulling straight from the Shin Bet doctrine, we understand that the last line of defense, should prevention attempts fail, is the ability to intercept and neutralize threats. The school focuses on hand-to-hand combat, tactical shooting CQB live fire, room clearing CQB live fire, motorcade ambush live fire team work, and vehicular live fire tactics. The students experience these live fire CQB skills in the individual and team levels.These crucial skills built in training are an important foundation for students to be able to overcome difficult situations in the most dangerous parts of the world. Our combat training builds up the student’s confidence to win situations, solve problems, become a team player, respond to authority, leadership and present discipline in the face of life-or-death scenarios. No matter what corner of the world bodyguards find themselves in, these are all instrumental qualities for an executive protection professional to possess.

Courses are designed for all levels, ranging from beginners all the way to professionals. There are no specific prerequisites, but it is highly recommended that students arrive in fairly good shape to maximize their performance. Courses require extensive physical activity at the range, Live Fire Shoot House Exercises and daily Hand-to-Hand Combat. The fitter you are, the easier it will be for you to follow the course materials.
We believe that practice makes perfect. That’s why we focus our training on repeated hands-on field exercises, including room clearing, live fire, vehicle exercises and evac drills, with almost no time in the classroom. There’s no better way for students to progress and gain confidence solving problems and dealing with situations under pressure.

A former veteran of the
U.S Special Forces " Green Beret"
"This is the best firearms training by far anywhere ever!. I've been shooting for over 30 years and was a Green Beret in the Army for 6 years and worked in executive protection for 5 years. I am completely blown away by the effectiveness and methodology of this schools philosophy and tactics. Tomer and his instructors set the standard for professionalism and safety especially with the complex level of moving pieces that are involved at their higher levels of executive protection training.
The training emphasizes muscle memory and doing the little things perfectly. There is no deviation from perfect performance and you WILL walk out phenomenally better and safer. Even if you've been shooting forever and whatever your background, I can vouch for that. My shooting and confidence in tactics went through the roof after one of their two week training programs.
I absolutely love this school and I highly recommend it!
