FIREARMS TRAINING & SELF DEFENSE IN RAPID CITY, SD

Firearms training should be safe, effective, and integrative. Whatever your unique context for self defense might be, you want the best training available. That means low-risk training with a modern, data-driven approach. It means including as much training in all facets of the “violent encounter” possible, and providing a place to practice regularly under pressure. This is what makes us different.

Safe Firearms Training

Our concealed carry training program is built on a foundation of safety and responsibility. It is for anyone of any skill level, in any vocation or stage of life. The only requirement is that you are a responsible person of good moral character.

Effective 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 personal defense are universal and form the foundation of the curriculum. Course content is tailored to the individual’s needs, goals, assets, liabilities, and overall situation.

Integrative

This isn’t a shooting 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.

The Forge is based in Rapid City, SD, in the beautiful Black Hills.
