The Course begins with the Use of Force and Legal Considerations Lecture which provides you with insight into how to ensure you do not become a victim of the legal system should you have to defend yourself. On the range, we engage targets at varying distances, across variable lateral transitions, and from different positions. We drill angles and distance and ensure you have the understanding and technical capability to take advantage of both. You’ll leave understanding how to train effectively to win a violent encounter should you experience it. Access to our professionally programmed practice drills is included with the course, and will be available online in our E-Learning Portal upon completion. We look forward to seeing you on the range!
