Does your self-defense plan involve carrying, and if necessary, using a pistol? If so, does your training take into consideration the modern criminal assault paradigm and testing your plan under pressure? Or, are you just putting holes in paper on the range and betting your life on how you THINK things will likely happen?

99% of People Who Carry a Gun Don't Train

The majority of American citizens who are legally allowed to carry a firearm for self-defense - don't. Even those who have a permit to do so. Of those who do, the vast majority of those people don't do anything more than get their permit by taking their State's mandated course. Even fewer have sought out modern training and actually tested their plan, skill set and equipment to see how it will all work under pressure.

Actually testing out your gear and your plan under realistic conditions is important. You may find out that where you plan to carry your gun doesn't work out so well under pressure. Or that your holster doesn't work like you thought it would under stress. It's better to find these things out under the pressures of training than the brutalness of real life.

Criminal Assault Happens at Close Range

Criminal Assaults typically are initiated at a range of 0 - 5 feet. However, there may often be time to detect and avoid such a fight ahead of time. This course aims to help you develop the skill set to not only avoid having to use force but to also be able to effectively use it when and if necessary.

Topics covered in this course include:

Avoidance and managing an unknown contact
The legalities of force including use of weapons
Proper timing of weapon access
Using and defending against strikes
Entangled fighting
Accessing defensive tools when entangled while standing
