Most violent encounters occur at an extremely close distance, often seven feet or less, and are over in a matter of seconds. Understanding how to defend yourself at close range can be critical in a self-defense situation.
This course incorporates self-defense mindset and tactics with a focus on developing your retention shooting skill, practicing deployment from your holster at close range, deployment from concealment, and ultimately adding strike and shoot techniques into your training scenario.
