Urban Self-Defense Carbine Rifle Operator’s Class (1-Day)
June 23rd (Sat) and July 28th (Sat), 2012. (10AM to 6PM)
Course Fee: $95.00 
Many citizens have purchased AR-15 and AK47 variant rifles in the last few years; yet have received no formal training in rifle operation and proper self-defense combat use. Proper and qualified training increases the     effective use of such equipment (your survivability) and reduces civil liability. Besides--- the training is fun!    
I have been training police and tactical team officers in the combat use of such weapons for many years and wish to extend this training experience to qualified civilians. This introductory level rifle / carbine operator’s course is designed to familiarize the student with and develop his/her proficiency with the Assault rifle / carbine rifle.  Students will learn about field stripping, maintenance, safe weapons handling, marksmanship skills, equipment, ballistics, as well as, introduction to advanced shooting drills. Such as movement shooting and rifle retention. Advanced skills will focus on home and urban defense.     
Primary weapon system focus will be on intermediate rifle caliber (i.e. 556NATO/.223REM & 7.62x39mm) rifles such as the Colt AR-15 and AK-47 variant rifles. However, other carbines such as the Mini-14/30, Sig556, PS-90, and similar are welcomed.  As a bonus, I will likely have a true select-fire (FULL-AUTO) assault rifle available for students to sample fire at the end of class.

Though much can be learned through traditional martial arts training, this Police Combat System of training is designed to provide the law enforcement and military professional with the specific advanced martial arts/combat skills training needed to meet the threat of violent physical and armed assaults.

It is the blending of the "meat and potatoes" of various martial arts and combat systems studied by the instructors. More importantly, through experience, the instructors know firsthand what combat mindset, physical skills, officer safety tactics, and training are necessary to survive violent physical and armed assaults.

Furthermore, as full-time police officers, the instructors understand that time is a limited resource and that officers need a concise form of training to develop the skills that will help them survive today, not after years of study.

Surviving a violent confrontation is much more than learning "self-defense moves". Police Combat Training will focus on developing your threat awareness, combat mindset, and warrior spirit, in addition to physical conditioning. Instructors will review effective police tactics, discuss and study the physiological and psychological effects of being in police-related combat, and how to control your reactions by using your natural instincts to your advantage.

Training focuses on principals of combat and goal orientation, the ultimate goal being officer survival. Specific area training will compliment and build upon each other.

Areas of training will focus on: responding to sudden attacks, effective combat striking, firearms weapons retention, weapon disarming skills, fighting with firearms, impact weapons skills and defense, offensive use of knives and knife assault defense, trapping and grabbing, balance displacement, subject control and pressure points, chokes and choking skills, joint locks and breaks, ground fighting skills, multiple attackers, combat use of firearms, use of your environment, and utilizing improvised weapons. The most important part, however, will be in developing a warrior spirit. We will discuss the physiological and psychological effects of being involved in combat and how to direct and control your reactions. In addition, we will discuss and learn about aspects of, as well as, the philosophy of the warrior and protector classes throughout history.

Though training will have a common foundation in conditioning and principals, instructors will focus on skills that will enhance the individual student. This will be accomplished by maximizing the individual's strengths and limiting their weaknesses. The end goal will be to increase your chance of surviving violent conflicts.

As a law enforcement professional, you have entered a violent world. Remember, we are a culmination of our past choices. How you prepare today, how you condition your body, and how you develop your fighting mindset and warrior spirit will dictate your future. Your future is in your hands. Please train smart, train hard, and stay healthy.
