Training

As always, we’ve got tons going on this month in our Training Department.  We’re committed to bringing you new curriculum and learning opportunities every month!  Make sure you check out these classes we’re highlighting in February:

Couples ReACT (Realistic Armed Combat Training) and Valentine’s ReACT Sessions 2/6 and 2/13

Our shoot house environment is perfect to take your training to the next level with a scenario-based approach.  Why not run through some scenarios with whomever you would likely be partnering with in a defensive situation? Learning how to work together and communicate under stress is always important.  This type of training, which uses Simunition (non-lethal training ammunition) rounds, provides students with the unique opportunity to see how their existing skills serve them when their adrenaline is high.  Register together for the 2/6 session, or individually for the session on 2/13.  Check out more info here.

Verbal Judo: Next Session 2/12 3PM

Verbal Judo, or Tactical Communications, is the gentle art of persuasion that redirects others behavior with words and generates voluntary compliance. The goal of Verbal Judo is to talk individuals who are hostile or not in complete control of their behavior into voluntary compliance without need of any physical force.

This 2-hour (no range time) class is perfect for developing skills you can use in a multitude of settings.  Read more and register here

Long-Distance Fundamentals….. is back!  Next Session 2/26 9AM

The Long-Distance Shooting Fundamentals class is designed to take students’ experience with rifles and push it even further! Join Wesley Wang, our long-distance shooting expert, at our partner range Pawnee Sportsman Center, as he introduces the concepts of precision shooting. During the class, students will focus on setting up their rifle, zeroing at distance, configuring the scope for distant engagements, various ballistic principles, and more! Skills learned in the classroom will be reinforced on the long-range pad during the live fire portion of the class. Students will confirm their zero at 100 yards, then engage steel targets 400-1000 yards out depending on student equipment. Once all is said and done, students will be ready to apply their knowledge towards a new shooting passion!  Rental rifles are available.  Read more and register here.
