Developed and taught BY women FOR women!! Whether you are new to firearms or have some experience and are ready to take the next step, this intermediate defensive class will further help to develop both your firearm skills and your defensive mindset.
The Level 2 class is the SECOND of three and will act as a building block to progress to the Level III Women’s Advanced Defensive class.
This class is part of a trio of WOMEN ONLY classes that will be taught regularly at The American Police Hall of Fame. With three distinct modules (Women's Basic Handgun, Women's Intermediate Handgun, and Women's Advanced (Defensive) Handgun), the Intermediate course is designed to build on what students learned in the basic class, introducing more details on gun-handling and helping students understand the concept of situational awareness and the important distinctions between training on a range and training for a defensive encounter.
This class provides more details on holsters, gun safes and how to keep your gun secure, whether its on you or tucked away. This class introduces single-handed shooting, basic moving and shooting, clearing malfunctions and rapid reloading. The class is designed to build you confidence and give you the tools to truly push beyond your comfort zone.
Upon Completion of all 3 Level Classes , you can purchase a copy of the book, Women`s Handgun and Self Defense Fundamentals, written by Beth Alcazar ($29.99 value).
