Close Encounters I
Crime stats tell us that the majority of lethal force assaults occur at a distance of less than 10 feet, with most occurring at less than 5 feet. This course will address defending yourself while keeping your firearm safe during a physical assault, through transitioning to the use of justified deadly force. You will develop the necessary skills that are critically important to your protection and survival while armed.
- unarmed combatives
- self defense while armed
- weapon retention techniques
- concealed carry and drawing
- practical shooting drills (using Airsoft pistols)
- man-on-man combat drills
The course will culminate in dynamic Force-on-Force interactive scenarios utilizing armed and unarmed force responses.
8am-12pm: Armed and Unarmed Combative’s, Concealed Carry and Drawing
Are you prepared to protect yourself and your weapon during a physical assault? This part of the program is geared for those times you may find it necessary to physically defend yourself against a close encounter physical assault while in possession of a firearm – also applicable for those times that you are not armed. Self Defense training for you MUST take into account that you not only need to protect yourself, but that you need to keep your weapon safe while doing so.
12-pm-5pm: Practical Shooting Drills, Force-On-Force Training and Scenarios
This part of the program develops close encounter practical firearm skills and real-time deadly force decision making. You will then combine these skills and those learned during the first session doing scenario based exercises, using Airsoft Weapons ….
The “Force-on-Force” training includes the following:
Gives the participant the opportunity to test & evaluate principles/tactics, equipment, physical skills and mental conditioning. Reactions are tested, stress is produced; specifically stress induced by either pain or the fear of pain. Constant activation of the “Sympathetic Nervous System” through pain or the fear of pain is the key to developing the orientation or “inoculation” to overreaction and improper decision making from a similar type of stimulus.
Our training gives the participants the opportunity to take initiative and the responsibility for their actions and what occurs, allows for the analyzing, and questioning of the
experience. We’ll use two distinct force-on-force training concepts: Drilling, and Scenarios. Our Drills are designed to replicate or specifically target a smaller portion of the overall scenario focusing on repetition of moves within the full scenarios. Our Scenarios then replicate actual situations you may face on a much larger scale.
