We are beginning our Defensive Handgun Series again!! It is a four day course offered one day a
a month introducing and practicing a philosophy requiring few techniques; easily understood and
utilized for protection while stationary, moving, or from behind cover. Various techniques are
shown and practiced through each Tier so that EACH student can find what techniques (and equipment) work best for them.
Tier I is an introduction to our defense philosophy, mindset, and various techniques.
These are practiced in both classroom and live fire settings.
Tier II is a more practical application of these techniques, allowing each student to determine
what is working, what needs tweaking, or what might need to be re-evaluated and
changed. In this class, we introduce low light considerations and Alternative Force.
Tier III is a class dedicated to when "the situation isn't perfect." We work on counter ambush
defense, close quarters; situations that can occur as a result of living our daily lives.
This is our "what if" course.
Tier III-SC is a CLOSED course for Tier III graduates only. It is purely student driven dealing with
special considerations, follow ups, or other topics and concerns our students have.
Tiers IV & V are reserved for law enforcement, tactical teams, military and special operations only.
