Force on Force $300

LIMIT 10-12 trainees!!! Register by payment.

Ever wonder what you'd do if a psycho with a knife charged at you? Or how you'd really handle a multiple adversary situation? Learn how to move, draw and shoot simultaneously!

Find out for certain in our interactive gun-fighting training!

Force on Force is the future of personal combat training. This course is CQB Gunfighting Skills. This class will instruct you on how to win a fight in the streets!

Typical marksmanship-based gun training leaves many questions unanswered. There is a great deal that you still don't know about street combat if all you've done is shoot paper targets on a shooting range. Even the many "shoothouse" exercises at gun schools are inadequate in preparing you for a street confrontation. In this class, our training focuses upon reality featuring high intensity, short duration combat at close range against live human beings with modern force on force technology. It is specifically designed for the private citizen and focuses on civilian street situations. Learn to defend against a single adversary bent on cutting you with a training knife, as well as against multiple adversaries suddenly drawing guns and firing at you. Learn what it takes to overcome home invaders, takeover robbers, hostage takers and active shooters! In today's environment, everyone has a need to know.

The training is open to all civilian students at any skill level, and is the sort of class you can attend over and over again to maintain your edge!! Fight-focused not Gun-focused!

What you need:


Day 1

A GAS operated airsoft pistol (Green gas or CO2), CCW holster and approximately 600 (Minimum) good quality airsoft pellets, long sleeve shirt : No steel pellets. I can supply paintball masks for protection in this class

2 Hour Modular Training Classes - $50/person

The Draw- we will develop the draw to a "close contact ready" position and to "point and shoot!" Learn how to react when a dangerous person has your loved one held at gun point and all you have is a shot to the 'ocular cavity' (a shot to the face around the nose/eye section). We need to develop the skills to accomplish this type shooting in a manner that is precise without time to spare! Come and learn how this is accomplished for you and your family. $50/person and could be an investment you wouldn't want to be without!
