Keep Fighting!




4 hours

About the Course

The goal of the class is to develop a fighting mindset, not just acquire some new shooting skills. If you get injured during the altercation, you must keep up the fight. Do not give up!

We will start off with learning how to apply a tourniquet to an arm or leg so that if you get hit, you can finish the fight. Then, we go on to one-handed shooting exercises with both the strong-side and support-side hands. We’ll show you how to reload and clear stoppages with only one hand. For the final exercises, we will integrate all the new skills (and the mindset) into combat courses. Bring some old clothes because we will introduce some fake blood into the exercises to inoculate you to seeing the red stuff.

 After this class, typical range days will seem easy!
