Here are SOME, but far from ALL, of the courses we teach. If you want to learn about firearms, defense, or medical subjects not listed here, please contact us to set up personalized coaching, or to schedule a class for your family or group.
We tailor our training to fit your particular needs and skill levels. It’s YOUR journey. We can help you improve, whether you are new to shooting or an operator wanting to get better before your next overseas deployment.
Some people find it easier to get to training on a given date, or if they have options to choose from, so we do schedule courses on specific topics (you’ll find those with dates on this page, and in our Scheduled Training section).
Some of our survey courses are “Level 1,” or “Level 2,” but we do not follow a generic, “colored belt” approach to improving your skills. Absent a request for specific material, we choose a topic, such as Low Light, Use of Cover, or how to deal with Multiple Assailants, and work it extensively, allowing you to explore several different workable solutions to multilayered tactical problems.
