We know that you have anxiously been awaiting the calendar so that you can set your plans for 2023. We’ve had emails, calls, and text messages about what and when.
What can we tell you about 2023? We can tell you that we stuck to our core values of being focused on providing high quality, realistic, and pertinent training for the environment out there. While it can be popular to stray and chase many fads and directions out there in the training industry, we don’t compromise. Our goal is empowering and driving individuals through their training journey, providing strong skillsets rather than false security.
Our course schedule is directly influenced by our students, instructors, and the current environment. As such we have tightened the focus on several classes and even adjusted some to better fit.
You will notice open dates, we have these built in as we take a limited number of individuals, groups, teams, and departments for private training. If you are looking for training outside of the regular schedule, please contact us to discuss your needs and arrangements.
While the list is up now, our online registration will be live within a few days. As always, thank you for your continued support and patronage.

Students will work from contact distance to 15-yards. Learn and experience the reality of the fight and getting your every day carry pistol into action. How will you respond?
