What You’ll Learn
Gym: Your morning starts with a review of Protector 1 grappling and a skills assessment. We then introduce street and combat effective striking, including tactics on closing the distance with your opponent, and “fun” pummeling exercises.
Range: You will learn in-depth situation awareness including site surveys, trip preparation, and surveillance detection.You will also learn pistol low-light engagement techniques and tactics.
Range: The second morning begins with a review and assessment of your Protector 1 pistol fundamentals. We add pressure and time constraints to test your abilities to perform basic marksmanship and pistol manipulation skills on-demand. The class is then divided by skill level to ensure each student is getting the maximum benefit from the course.
Gym: You will learn basic strikes, striking variables, as well as striking defense. We will test your fitness in a striking gauntlet and learn how to use striking to set up the clinch, as well as driving to and fighting off a wall.
Range: Day three introduces non-traditional shooting positions including fighting from the ground, kneeling, and during the transition. You will also learn how to effectively use cover and the basics of fighting around vehicles.
Gym: After a brief technique review and striking gauntlet exercise, you will continue to advance your skills on fighting off the wall. The day culminates with a realistic wall fight, including weapon retention against a dedicated opponent.
