Eye Gouge Training Head

Partner Training

The Problem

Currently in the world arena of most police, military, corrections, and security training, students learning eye gouges have to practice the technique/tactic on each other. Aside from the obvious potential injury problems, this does not accurately reflect the required penetration of passing the frontal plane of the eye as trainees have to use a “touch drill only” on the closed eye of their partner. Sometimes students place their thumbs/fingers on the forehead of the “suspect/enemy/attacker” to prevent possible injury. The problem with that technique is that it sets incorrect blueprints and does not allow the student to psychologically or physically engage and attack the proper area therefore creating bad landmarking habits.

Safety glasses are sometimes worn which “allow” the student a chance to “touch” the “eyes”, but unfortunately this is counterintuitive (and potentially dangerous should the plastic lens or frame fracture). Also in the real world, if the suspect was wearing glasses, the trainee should learn to bypass the glasses (by angles/rips) and follow through with the proper eye gouge attack.

The Solution

Until the design of the Eye Gouge Head by Blue Training Systems, there was no known realistic training head of similar design in the market. The Eye Gouge Head is made specifically for the trainee to be able to penetrate into the eye socket (orbit). It also allows the student to make contact with a realistic-looking flexible eyeball when it is inserted for reality based training (RBT). The anatomically correct features of the head also give the student a chance to find natural anchor points and practice essential pressure counter-pressure principles. The Eye Gouge Head has an optional handle, which when attached, can be held by a partner to enhance the training experience.

Each Eye Gouge Head is made from extremely durable PVC plastic which lets the user practice causing blunt trauma injuries by impacting the head against the ground, cars, walls or other hard surfaces which one could envision using in their “battle space”.
