Message from the President

Hello, welcome to our online center and web portal for all things within and throughout the ISR Matrix. Thank you for visiting.

The ISR Matrix was established in 1996 and based on the principles of aliveness in training. This aliveness is a naturally sequential expression that is validated by proof through performance and objective measurement. Our foundation is one built on efficiency in function, reliability under stress and adaptability as a constant. It is from this dynamic base and core that we have since built an international organization that has come to be known for the most innovative, efficient, and readily transferable training methods in our field.

If demonstrably progressive training though direct immersion with genuine and experienced guidance makes sense to you, then you have certainly come to the right place. I am certain you will find many peers among our members who share your appreciation and passion for honesty in training and it's validation via proof when implemented. Regardless of your personal goals or experience, I hope you will enjoy your visit. Browse through our media, text and press collection. Take some time to look through our online forum and if you are inspired, join then contribute and share. Ultimately, we are a community organized and united in integrity, responsibility and service promoting and consistently refining the finest instruction, training and preparation for what we do in the course of our day in the training hall and in the field.

Thanks again and best of fortune,

Luis Gutierrez
ISR Matrix Founder & President


Instruction accommodates one of three divisions


The ISR Matrix Physical Management (PM) is designed for licensed civilian and employed security personnel working in environments that require subject control, restraint, and transportation such as executive protection, hospital orderlies, security guards and bouncers. From individual to team tactics, the system is designed to directly address the specific needs of the security guard, team, institution or business requiring the training.


The ISR Matrix Law Enforcement (LE) is designed for the patrol officer as a complete defensive tactics system that can easily be readily integrated with existing S.O.P. and use of force continuums as required. From officer presence, on through to the use of deadly force, the ISR Matrix grants officers the adaptability to escalate and de-escalate in direct proportion to subject's resistance levels.


The ISR Matrix Armed Forces (AF) is designed to meet the needs of military and paramilitary personnel working as individuals or as part of special response and anti-terrorist teams. This training takes into account the various threats encountered every day in different fields of operation yet upholds the rules of engagement of each group. The strategies and tactics employed have emphasis on transition to and from firearms in close quarter battle, urban survival and team tactics. Certain aspects of the ISR-AF are also commonly used to instruct S.W.A.T.
