Effective Self-Defense Methods
We are focused on the simplest and most effective methods to protect yourself, and our approach to training allows anyone of any skill level to learn and grow at their own pace. The principles of self-defense are universal and form the foundation of the curriculum. Course content for firearms training is tailored to the individual’s needs, goals, assets, liabilities, overall situation, and willingness.
This is firearms training, but this isn’t a “shooting class” or a “gun class.” While marksmanship is important, we also need to look at the big picture, available data sources, and prioritize training based on probabilities and need. So for us, self-defense with a firearm involves a lot more hands-on skills than you might expect. Likewise our hand-to-hand self-defense involves a lot more than just physical options. We integrate a wide range of skills from the very beginning to train a well-rounded citizen defender.
