Our goal with this course is to train, equip, and prepare you for not only survivability but also victory in tense and violent situations.

This course is an intensive and is grounded in a “Whole Person Concept” – essentially focusing on the traits that will provide you the ability to triumph in tense and or violent situations. Through this course we want to establish and build on a solid defensive foundation in the areas of firearms, physical tactics, medical skills, response tactics, situational awareness and other associated disciplines. This course will be conducive to the beginner and the experienced person alike.

Our staff work to ensure that all participants walk away with the benefits of professional training, evaluation and feedback.

This course begins with an inclusive private dinner at a 5 star restaurant the night before training. This is meant as an icebreaker and meet and greet with the instructors. This lends to take the edge off any anxiousness or nervousness for the first day.

We will conduct training 8-4 each day with an hour lunch break each day.

You will be receiving professional and structured training throughout the week. You are actually going to gain additional certification in the personal Preservation Course as well as Progressive Pistol I&II.

On Wednesday we will take you out to relax a bit and engage in some Axe throwing at a local establishment.

On Friday we finalize your week by taking you to Top Golf for a private event and to celebrate your accomplishment!
