Expectations and Outcomes

Day 1: Fighting Back
If you find yourself in a situation where you need to fight back, we'll teach you how to defend yourself while standing, on the ground with empty hands and against weapons.

One Day 1 you will learn how to defend yourself with striking techniques, knee and elbow  strikes for closer contact, kicking for longer range and on the ground for ground defense techniques. We will also add in weapon defenses (knife, objects such as pipe,sticks,baseball bat, ect.) Also included in Day 1 will be Handgun Defense/Retention. We will discuss and go hands-on on how to defend your handgun if you are involved in a violent close quarter encounter. At the end of Day1 you will be well versed in physically defending yourself in close quarter encounters. 

Day 2: Range Day 
Day 2 is Range Day. We will start out with a detailed firearms safety briefing. We will take about survival mindset and touch back on situational awareness. A gear inspection and concealment tips will be also be discussed. when we step out on the firing line we will cover the fundamentals and go through "Dry Drills" for a warm up.
You will shoot "Live Fire" at different distances, go through reload drills,stoppage drills, shooting from cover and more.  
You'll leave the course able to defend yourself physically and be able to access your firearm and hit your target accurately and faster. The combination of both of these skills will make you a "HARD TARGET"
