Movement and Response Principles for the Armed Protector

This course focuses on behavioral-based responses for armed protectors, including decision making in and around crowds during an active threat. Students will practice techniques using demo weapons and holsters (provided).

Full course description


The importance of training armed protectors to move through crowded environments and handle weapons properly cannot be overstated. Preparation is required in order to make proper, time-compressed decisions in worst-case scenarios.

This course includes drills for a variety of weapon carry positions and movements. You’ll learn how to apply these principles in different environments and contexts.
This training is conducted at a church and will conclude with several scenarios where students will have an opportunity to practice simulations of a real event.
