Regarding Our Training Philosophy and Practices
Our training staff is composed of professional and experienced coaches and we are students ourselves. We believe in treating everyone respectfully and as adult learners. Our coaches participate in the learning process and we use a building block approach to solidify skills before moving toward more advanced concepts. We do not believe in "check the box" training nor do
we believe in "lowest common denominator" training. Individual assistance is always available. Those who are not safe and conscientious with their firearms, those who are not willing to be open-minded, receive new information and try new concepts, and those who are not capable of keeping their ego in check should not enroll in our trainings.
Prerequisites and Physical Requirements for Firearms Training:
- An operator should be able to load, unload, and reload their firearm in a SAFE and CONTROLLED manner. Muzzle discipline and awareness is paramount.
- An operator must possess the physical strength and stamina to repetitively function and fire their weapon during prolonged drilling. You must be able to get up and down from standing, kneeling, and prone positions, as well as move forward, backward, and laterally.
- An operator must be able to maintain mental, physical, and emotional self-discipline and not become over-excited or lose control.
- An operator must have a keen awareness and consideration for other operators while handling firearms and conducting drills in close proximity of other operators.
- An operator should be familiar with their weapons and equipment and be able to field strip their firearm for cleaning, maintenance, and problem-solving.
