Our Training Philosophy:
Our training staff is composed of professional and experienced coaches and we are students ourselves.
We believe in treating everyone respectfully and as adult learners. Our coaches participate in the learning process and we use a building block approach to solidify skills before moving toward more advanced concepts.
We believe that “capability breeds humility.” In other words, by achieving a higher level of skill you will be able to better maintain composure while under duress. Through managing fear the capable operator will operate more confidently, more quickly, and make better decisions in the stressful environment of a true emergency.
We do not believe in “check the box” training or lowest common denominator training. Individual assistance is always available.
You should not enroll in our course if you are:
• Not safe and conscientious with firearms

• Not capable of keeping your ego in check
