A structure of courses based off of empirical data from a plethora of body and dash cams as well as surveillance videos. If you want to run your gun – in the most efficient way possible – then this course is for you!

 Defensive Shooting Fundamentals (DSF) Level 1 was designed for training your mind & body how to react. It’s imperative that you train in as an efficient, realistic and practical a manner as possible so that you are prepared for a Dynamic Critical Incident. You can’t waste time or resources on anything that isn’t a specialized area of study. Build the foundation you need to understand intuitive defensive shooting and deadly force decision making. Unlock the lifesaving mindset of the warrior expert theory that will help you guess your attackers next move with ease. Discover how you can develop the ability to apply your shooting skills on demand, without anticipation, while trying to save your own life or the lives of others. Uncover the hands-on live-fire drills you must know to prepare and prevail even under the most dangerous of circumstances. You will be run through the Home-Defense Simulation Drill and if time permits the Take A Lap Drill and Tactical Stroll Drill.
