TACFLOW ACADEMY a Phoenix, Arizona based Tactical Training Academy. Minority Owned Small
Business that was founded by Rigo Durazo in 2009. He has a combative program that uses behavioral
coded learning, which is key for combative disciplines from the hands on phase, to shooting and movement
skills. By using commonalities in behavior for multiple disciplines, students learn
to utilize these combative shapes to solve multiple problems.

protection and combat-honed military experience, and we understand the importance of realistic, intense
training and preparation. The TACFLOW team is committed to providing mission tailored training and
solutions to its law enforcement and military customers. They bring a combination of management

Rigo Durazo is the founder of TACFLOW™ and was the Director of Training for Craft International until
it ceased doing business in 2015. He has over 20 years' experience in the global security field, specializing
in low signature protection in some of the most remote regions of the world. He worked as a business
liaison into Mexico and Latin America as a security and anti-kidnapping specialist. TACFLOW™ was
developed as a collaboration of ancient technology fusing or flowing with modern weaponry. Rigo has
spent years translating this information to operators including SWAT officers, Secret Service, DEA,
Undercover/ Narcotics officers, Human Trafficking Units, Patrol, and Military personnel.
Today Rigo Durazo oversees all of Tacflow's Training Program offerings and curriculum and is the founder
of Tacflow Academy™. He is the senior instructor for SEACA SYSTEMA (South East Asia Combative
Arts SYSTEMA) a synthesis of Kali systems and several Silat systems. His earned title is Maha Guru
Durazo which was granted by Grand Master "Manu" Gardea. He teaches using the SEACA SYSTEMA
philosophies and methods.
Rigo Durazo was introduced to Chief C. Kyle, USN/SEAL through his students in the community. When
Kyle saw that Rigo taught true violence, and not the usual martial arts sport applications, he told him he was
doing his country a disservice by not sharing that information to the military and law enforcement
communities. He invited Rigo to join Craft International, LLC, inclusive of some of the most highly
qualified experts/operators in their respective crafts. TACFLOW Training has been the official training
partner of Craft International, LLC from 2009 until 2015, when they ceased to take on new business. The
training cadre for Craft International has found a home under TACFLOW Academy moving forward and
you can continue to receive the same high caliber training you have grown to expect, from the same
instructor team you know and trust. Every member of the TACFLOW Training team has been chosen not
only for their expertise and knowledge, but also for their commitment to excellence. There are many
exceptional operators out there, but the ability to translate that knowledge to others is a valuable skill in
itself. Drawing from a team with diverse backgrounds allows us to custom tailor courses of almost any
curriculum. The TACFLOW teaching methodology is more than a system, it is a way of translating
information in a manageable, intelligent way.
TACFLOW conducts their specialized training in the Northern Phoenix, Arizona area. The live fire
exercises will be at the well-known CowTown Gun range which is a short drive from the bustling urban city
of Peoria, Arizona (a large suburb of Phoenix). The training range is off-the-beaten path and highly
secluded, offering a prime facility when privacy and confidentiality is of utmost importance.
The 80-acre CowTown property is an ideal location for conducting the specialized and unique training to
units that require a low signature presence, because it has a multi-use venue for specialized weapons
training events. The facility features a vast natural desert terrain with unique structures, including a full
ghost town, Afghanistan/Mexican village, six shooting bays, and more.
The classroom, CQC, and shoothouse training will be performed less than 20 minutes away at the new
TACFLOW indoor training facility, opening early August 2015. The TACFLOW facility is a climate
controlled 20,000sq/ft+ facility that can be closed to the public during the week for complete privacy. It
has a large classroom area; 3,000sq/ft designated gym area for movement and CQC drills; and
approximately 10,000 sq/ft indoor shoothouse with movable walls for force on force scenarios. The
