For Law Enforcement, Military
And Professional Security Personel

Elite Tactical Training Since 2002.

Capability Breeds Humility

Our creed is Capability Breeds Humility. The more capable a person becomes through quality training the more humble they become. This, in turn, makes them better public servants.

With a lack of training, protectors many times respond to the crisis from a fear-based paradigm, which can escalate a situation leading to a negative outcome. Through quality training, that same officer can respond with confidence – but more importantly – sound tactics and wise decision-making and understanding. This allows the protector to de-escalate the situation with a better likelihood of a positive outcome for everyone involved. This reduces use-of-force incidents and complaints as well as liability.

In today’s tension-filled society, officers – now more than ever – need a higher level of training to meet our community’s expectations.  

During our training, we feature:

  • Rigorous force-on-force simulation
  • Practical and advanced live-fire courses
  • Low light precision rifle training
  • Low-light instructor courses
  • Use of force doctrine seminars
  • Defensive tactics/combatives training
