Situational Awareness: Learning how to be aware in your surroundings. We’ll teach you how to assess your surroundings, from new places to familiar ones, so you can begin to instinctively spot hidden dangers.
Body Language: Criminals like easy targets; we’ll go over how strong body language signals like posture and eye contact can help in deterring an attacker.
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 and with weapons.
Handgun Retention: You’ll leave the course able to defend your weapon, fight for position, and do maximum damage with each opportunity. The application of these rules combined with the hands-on technique training will give you the full range of skills to defend yourself if necessary.
Gear Placement and Firearms Safety: Whether you own and are familiar with your handgun or not, there may come a time when you find yourself needing to know how to handle one safely. We’ll instruct you in firearms safety so the next time you hold a handgun it is with confidence!
If you own a handgun, where do you carry it and how accessible is it in an emergency? We’ll identify the most effective ways to carry your firearm and touch on techniques to make getting it out when needed a smoother process.
Building Firearm Confidence: If a situation escalates, you may need to use a firearm to save your life. In addition to the basic fundamentals we’ll provide the guidance and practice needed to be confident in your shot. From loading techniques to shooting at various distances, we’ll go over the eight fundamentals you need to know how to be proficient.
After a few tries, some of the shots will become easy on the range, but in a real-life situation you likely won’t have time to set up and get comfortable. We’ll train you how to draw your weapon from its concealed position and practice your aim so you can get the shot even under duress.
