EVIDENCE-BASED

Methodology

Our self-defense training methods are based on physiological science and data from years of research on violent crime. This training is efficient, fluid, safe, and integrated. Because violent crime is unpredictable, with variables that are unrepeatable, we teach you to be adaptable using a core set of principles and techniques.

You can only train at the range so much before it gets too expensive, too dangerous, or run out of things you can safely practice. Our approach allows you to regularly practice 90% of the skills you need to practice – including dealing with a threat, weapon retention, situational awareness, fighting with our gun while standing, up against the wall, or on the ground, as well as decision-making problems – in a safe, controlled environment without any wasted ammo.
